What to wear/carry - Skydive Dubai

What to wear:

  • Choose athletic clothing like leggings, joggers, or sweatpants that allow for easy movement. Avoid loose clothing or anything that could flap in the wind.
  • Lace-up sneakers with good ankle support are essential for a secure jump.
  • For those with glasses: While you can technically wear glasses during the jump, wearing contact lenses is highly recommended. This is because glasses can become loose or dislodged during the freefall, potentially causing discomfort or even getting lost. Additionally, the goggles provided for the jump might fit over glasses imperfectly, compromising your vision during this breathtaking experience.
  • Leave jewelry and other loose items at home, as they could pose a safety risk during the jump.

What to carry:

  • Valid photo ID: Bring a government-issued photo ID, such as your passport or Emirates ID, that matches the name on your booking. This is mandatory for verification purposes. Any name changes after the booking has been processed will be charged AED 300 per name and must be paid at check-in time.
What to eat - Skydive Dubai

Fuel your body wisely to ensure a smooth and enjoyable skydiving experience in Dubai. Opt for a light and easily digestible meal at least 2-3 hours before your jump. Think oatmeal with fruit and nuts, yogurt with granola and berries, or a banana and peanut butter sandwich. Avoid greasy or heavy meals like fried foods, burgers, spicy dishes, and fatty meats, as these can cause discomfort during the freefall.

Additional tips:

  • Additionally, alcohol and drugs are strictly forbidden within 24 hours of your skydiving experience for safety reasons.
  • Avoid sugary drinks and caffeinated beverages like soda or coffee close to your jump, as they can contribute to dehydration and anxiety.

Honesty is crucial for a safe and enjoyable experience.

It's crucial to be honest about any pre-existing medical conditions and consult with your doctor if you have concerns about your skydiving eligibility.

    Women: Weight limit of 90 kg (198 lbs) and BMI below 27.5.
