Skydiving at the Palm dropzone is incredibly safe. You'll be jumping with a highly experienced tandem instructor who will guide you through every step of the process.

Safety guidelines for first-timers:

  • Pre-jump briefing: Your instructor will give you a thorough briefing that covers everything you need to know, including proper positioning, safety procedures, and equipment operation.
  • Tandem jump: You'll be securely harnessed to a certified instructor who manages the jump, allowing you to relax and enjoy the experience.
  • Flight, drop and landing: It takes 20 to 30 minutes to reach a height of 13,000 feet. After reaching this height, you will take the leap securely harnessed to your instructor. As you descend from this height, the city unfolds before you, and you can gently float back to the landing zone. 
  • Before your jump, you'll complete a Skydive Dubai Tandem Waiver and Insurance Policy form outlining safety guidelines and responsibilities.
  • Timings: Palm dropzone operates daily (subject to weather conditions) from 8:00 am. Payment windows typically close by 2:30 pm.
