Ensure to reach the skydiving center at least 15 minutes before your assigned slot. You will be required to read and fill out some paperwork, after which you will be put through a standard health check-up.

2. Training

The next step is a meet-and-greet with your tandem skydive instructor who, along with his/her team, will take you through a brief training session that shouldn’t last more than 30 minutes. They walk you through the entire skydive process and brief you about the right body movements and positions to adapt before and during your jump.

3. The Tandem fall

You’ll be strapped into the necessary skydiving gear before being led towards the aircraft for your tandem skydive. Next, you’ll travel towards the sky on a short, 20-minute flight. Your instructor will then attach themselves to you by a harness and instruct you on the position to adapt before the jump.

Now comes the best part! Feel the cool wind rush against your body as you freefall over the Palm. Your freefall will last for approximately 60 seconds which will feel like a surreal rollercoaster ride, after which your tandem skydive instructor will deploy the parachute. Now is when you can actually stop and soak in the beautiful view; watch the sun shine over some of the tallest skyscrapers in Dubai and enjoy the serene ocean gently crash against the Palm Jumeirah. Your landing will take between 5-7 minutes; make the most of it!

  • It's important to dress casually but appropriately in loose, comfortable clothing that allows for freedom of movement while still providing good support.
  • Long-sleeved shirts and pants are usually recommended as they provide protection from the sun, wind and air pressure while skydiving.
  • Closed-toe shoes or sneakers with good traction and cushioning are ideal, as they can help reduce the impact on landing and provide stability during aerial maneuvers.
  • Avoid wearing anything too baggy or bulky—jewelry, scarves or any loose clothing can get caught in the gear and increase the risk of injury.
  • It's best to eat a meal two or three hours before your jump, making sure to include slow-burning carbohydrates like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables for long-lasting energy.
  • Starchy carbs like potatoes, pasta, and rice are also good options. Do not overeat.
  • Additionally, protein such as lean meats or nuts can help give you energy throughout your jump.
  • Avoid any foods that are high in fat as these take longer to digest and can lead to nausea during your jump.
