What to do

Sky Dive Dubaii
Al Seyahi St

Sky Dive Dubai is a definite 'to do' if you seek excitement on your trip. Imagine jumping out of a plane at 120 miles per hour from an altitude of 13,000 feet over the Palm Jumeirah Island, experiencing the force of the air, spinning around while free falling and when the parachute opens you hang in the sky and observe the sheer beauty of Dubai like never before.

You can book online for your jump and choose a preferred time. Bear in mind that you need to adhere to the specified BMI levels on your jump day.

The facilities are clean, professional-looking, and efficient. The staff measures your height, weight and have you sign a non-liability agreement form. You wait until your assigned instructor calls for your name.

The videographer also introduces himself to you and takes a quick intro video. Within 30 minutes, you will be in your harness, briefed by your instructor and heading towards plane.

The videographer asks questions and takes pictures throughout the entire ascent in the plane. Once you reach the correct altitude, you will be harness to the instructor and in no time you will be jumping out of the plane.

After about a minute of free fall, (the experience is out of this world), the parachute opens and you hang; the view of the Palm is absolutely spectacular. You glide down for about five to ten minutes, turning in and out of the wind, and finally land safely as the whole experience comes to an end.

There's a gift shop if you want to buy souvenirs and a video compilation of your experience will be given to you after your jump, you just have to wait approximately 45 minutes. Cost Dhs 2,199. Call 04-377 8888.
