Booking with Travel Agents and Agencies

Please do not book your first time skydiving experience with a travel agent or a travel agency.

Skydive Dubai does not honour any bookings made via travel agents. Such bookings are invalid and do not authorize travel agents or their customers to experience a tandem skydive at Skydive Dubai, or to receive any refund from Skydive Dubai for such a booking.

Weather

Skydiving is a weather sensitive sport. Our ground control team will begin assessing the weather when operations begin for that day. The weather will be constantly monitored throughout the day.

Please plan to spend a number of hours for your experience. If the conditions are not suitable, your experience may take a little longer.

While at the drop zone, be sure to pay attention to the announcements over the PA from manifest, as well as announcements on the monitors placed on the wall. If poor weather conditions affect skydiving, our manifest team will announce an operational stand-by.

If we go on stand-by, this means that we have to put a hold to our skydiving operations. We will keep you updated every 30 minutes whether we will restart operations or whether we will stay on stand-by or cancel for the day.

If you are unable to skydive due to bad weather conditions, your deposit is refundable. You can also ask at manifest to move your reservation to a later date if there is space available in our schedule.

Please be aware that while every effort is made to communicate operational changes, the Palm drop zone could close without prior warning due to poor weather conditions, for special events or competitions. Therefore, please be aware that the Palm manifest team may try to contact you by either phone or email if we need to cancel or reschedule your skydive due to things beyond our control.

Clothes

Wear athletic and comfortable clothes, sneakers/sport shoes. No sandals, boots or high heels. Please be respectful to the local culture and do not wear low cut tops while at the drop zone.

During you skydive do not wear shirts with a collar, short shirts or short shorts. No sleeveless shirts allowed, only T-shirts with short or long sleeves

Note: For obvious safety reasons high-heels or other unsuitable footwear could be potentially hazardous on landing. In the UAE it is also advisable to dress respectfully so as not to impinge on the traditional culture. This means no sleeveless tops, especially for women, and general avoidance of skimpy clothing. There are bathrooms and showers available for those who wish to change into and out of sport clothes for the skydive.

Shoe rental is available for those who forget to bring the appropriate footwear, but for the most enjoyable experience please do remember to bring tennis (trainer) shoes to enjoy the sport of skydiving to the fullest.

Reservations

First time skydives are a fun, popular activity in Dubai. To guarantee your seat on the plane, we highly recommend reserving your skydive date and check in time.

Reservations can only be made on our website through our live booking system.

We highly recommend booking your skydive one to two months in advance of your visit to Dubai, and as skydiving is a weather dependent sport, it is advisable to book your skydive at the beginning of your trip, in case you want to reschedule it due to poor weather or other issues.

Wait List Option

If you haven’t booked in advance, but still wish to try and skydive with us, join our daily waiting list. Show up early, and put your name down. If there’s an available slot that day you might just get it!

The waiting list is compiled on a first-come-first-served basis, so it’s always a good idea to arrive when the drop zone opens. Everyone who skydives with us must meet our requirements. There is no guarantee you will get to skydive, but if you’re not on the list, you definitely won’t!

Female Tandem Skydivers

We have world-class female tandem instructors at Skydive Dubai!

If you would like a female tandem instructor, please request this when you check-in.

Note: We always do our very best to accommodate all requests, but sometimes this may not be possible. We also have a special scarf for skydiving available for anyone who usually wears a hijab.

Your Arrival Time

When creating your reservation, you select your arrival time. This is also the time that we need you to check in at our Registration desk next to manifest.

Remember, this is not your skydive time. After you have checked-in and filled out/presented the required paperwork, you will be scheduled for your skydive.

Note: We work hard to get you in the air as soon as we can. Weather conditions or other factors may result in delays, so please ensure you have a flexible schedule on the day of your skydive. Plan to spend a number of hours for your experience from the time of check-in.

What to Bring

Please remember to bring a valid photo ID, and reservation details such as the name that the reservation is under and reservation number, and your printed and filled out manifest waiver; which you can download prior to your arrival.

Passports are acceptable to use as your ID, but please remember to collect it after your skydive.

What do the announcements from manifest mean?

"We're 15 minutes out for 'Merica load 4. 15 minutes!"

At Skydive Dubai we announce 20, 15, 10, and 5 minute calls. This means that everybody must be ready to go to the plane in that time. We often have multiple aircraft on any given day, so manifest will specify which aircraft the call is for.

The example above is for one of our aircraft that's coloured red, white, and blue. We call that one 'Merica!

"It's a 'nnnNNNow' call for Yellow Otter 7. Yellow Otter 7, that's a 'nnnNNow' call!"

The 'nnNow' call (or 'now' call) means the buggy is ready to transport you to the plane and you should already be on it! Yellow Otter refers to the type of aircraft (in this case one of our DHC Twin Otters), with the yellow 'SD' logo on the side.

"We are going on 'Stand-by' "

This announcement means that conditions are currently unsuitable to skydive. We're very lucky with the sun here in the UAE, but sometimes winds can make things difficult. This doesn't mean that you won't skydive, usually it just means you may have to wait a bit for the winds to settle down again. Our ground control checks the conditions every 30 minutes.
