Palm Drop Zone Skydiving Experience
Soar higher than the tallest towers amidst Dubai’s skyline; skydive from 13,000 ft in the sky and take home a treasure trove of memories.
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.
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.
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!
