Skydiving in Palm Jumeirah Island, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai is one of the seven emirates with the largest population, located at the Persian Gulf and has became a global city with major modern architectural and technological wonders. Impressive skyscrapers and high rise buildings, artificial man made islands with unique shapes, fountains that shoot water as high as 500 ft/150 m high, combined with music and light beams, intense nightlife and many cultural and sport events make Dubai the most cosmopolitan city of Saudi Arabia.
However, one of the best ways to really see Dubai in the middle of a desert setting, is from above while skydiving. The drop-zone is located at the base of Palm Jumeira and awaits the skydiving enthusiasts for a one in a lifetime experience. This drop-zone is suitable for all skill levels and offers high quality and updated facilities, a swoop pond for canopy piloting and all the necessary equipment as well as two airplanes and helicopters.
You can arrange tandem jumps or take lessons if you wish to become a skydiving instructor. The maximum jump altitude is at 13000 ft/3962 m high and from this height, views over the palm island and the landscape around it are just unbelievably breathtaking. Skydiving is considered to be a popular extreme sport for the adventure seekers in Dubai.
Once you experience the beauty of free-fall, you will be stuck with it and ask for more. Dubai is one of the best places on the planet for skydiving, being also the hosting location for the World Parachuting Championship with great success. So wait no longer, pack your bags and organize a “ free flight” over Dubai’s incredible city.
