Skydiving in Dubai is one of the most radical things I have experienced until today!
Jumping out of a plane anywhere in the world is bound to spike your levels of adrenaline, specially when it is your first time. But doing it in Dubai is particularly exciting because of the landscape you get a bird eye’s view upon.
After a free-fall where you reach a speed of 210 km/hr, your tandem instructor opens the parachute and you float softly in the sky, enjoying a view of intense blue sea, as your eyes also feast in the odd shapes of the man-made islands of Palm Jumeirah and The World.
When you come down you can hang out and rave about your experience with other people who have also just jumped or are still trying to gather the courage to go for it and finally tick skydiving in Dubai off their bucket list!
This was Zara’s leap of faith, on the same day:

looks fun! always wanted to do that!
wow! i’ve always wanted to do that. 2014 looks to be the year!
Go for it, Gabriel!
It’s an incredible experience! :D
That is definitely one cool video! I cannot wait to go and try that out for myself (*crossing my fingers for 2014*)!
Go for it!! :)
This looks sooo cool but is it expensive? How much did you paid for a jump? I heard they’re very busy and you usually have to book like .. a month before??
Yes, it is quite expensive. If I remember correctly, we paid around USD300/person a couple of years ago. But it’s a “once in a life-time” kind of experience! And it includes the guy that jumps along with you taking the photos and video (that was not optional).
We booked a couple of weeks in advanced.. but I am not sure how busy they’d be these days!
Wow! What an amazing experience it must feel so liberating fly in the sky, I wish I had the courage to do it too! :)
After you are done with the pumping adrenaline yes, it feels liberating and very relaxing.
But in the beginning you almost poop your pants!! ;)
What an incredible movie it really looks like a lot of fun.
Oh yeah, you bet it was!! :D
