Description:


The Palm DZ offers visitors truly unique experiences.
A tandem skydive from 13,000 feet above the Palm Jumeirah is an incredible experience and should be on everyone’s Dubai to-do list. Experienced skydivers can also avail of coaching, a full-service rigging loft, and free load organising. The Desert Campus DZ caters to adrenaline junkies who prefer to skydive solo, offering First Jump Courses (FJC) through the
Accelerated Free Fall (AFF) program for those who wish to begin their skydiving journey
For the initiated there are even more options to advance with a dedicated flight school, which offers formation skydiving, freefly, canopy, and wingsuit coaching at the Desert Campus, as well as free load organising.
Instructors at both of Skydive Dubai’s drop zones are some of the most experienced in the world and have thousands of jumps each. Many are world record holders, and all are friendly, approachable, down-to-earth, and dedicated to helping their students. Note: Skydive Dubai operates it's own runways away from Dubai International Airport. However, DXB airport is the closest airport to fly in and out of. *** Dropzones closing June 1, 2016 and reopening September 1, 2016 ***

Don't get me wrong, because i do like Skydive Dubai, "The Palm"... but to be honest it doesn't feel like a place you should go, if your intentions are to jump a lot (say, team-practice).

At any given time there is a TON of tandem tourists waiting for their tandem master, and i got the feeling that the staff working at the DZ primarily where there to service the passengers.

The packing area for licensed skydivers is really small (6-7 persons max.), compared to the significantly larger Pro-packing area... and "normal" skydivers where constantly pushed to the back of the line to make it easier for the Tandems.

in general "The Palm" felt more like a tandem-factory, than a real DZ
(but the view is still pretty hard to compete with :D)

I did a few jumps here when I stopped off for work....the aircraft are great as are the 2 drop zones.

The atmosphere was a bit exclusive and I felt a little sidelined at times.

There are no words to describe the feeling you have when you jump...

I did in Australia this was great, in Dubaï this was simply amazing.

The scenery is breathtaking, the team is so professional and friendly.

This is the best I've done in my life and believe me I'm an adrenaline junkie. Skydiving is the best ever.

You are hesitating...don't think more, just do it!
By the way, it was just so awesome that I'm doing it again next month :-)

Had my 1st tandem there, and it won't be the last! Ok, i can not compare with other teams & facilities because i have not been somewhere else, BUT the Skydive Dubai Team looked very professional and serious on what they do, but also they have fun on doing theri job! Book your tandem in advance, as they are fully booked in short time (no wonder!) Absolute highly recommended!

Jumping off 13000 feet! Wow!! It's not even jumping, its freefalling. Such a thrill... adrenalin pumped in my system for like 2 days afterwards lol.

You get briefly but properly instructed to how the experience is gonna happen, the plane takes off, then your heart skips a beat when the door opens, you sit on the edge of the plane and aaaaaa... freefalling.... heartbeating... over Palms Jumeirahm, such a wonderful scenary - amazing location!!

Parachutes opens and you stand still in the air. Wow, you now own the world :)

Flying over the location, left n right then landing! You wouldn't even notice how high your voice is while your screaming, jumping, high-five-ing hahaha.

Thank you Skydive Dubai team...
Loved it and will sure visit you again :)
