What is a Tandem Skydive?
A tandem skydive is the quickest and easiest way to experience the thrill of freefall at over 120 miles per hour, while securely harnessed to one of our experienced and accomplished instructors. Adrenaline enthusiasts can live this adventure at our two world-class locations, the Palm Dropzone and the Desert Dropzone.
Every customer who purchases a tandem package at either of our locations will receive a USB provided by us which contains photographs and our standard edited video of their experience. This can be collected from the on-site Shop, 45 minutes after you complete your skydive.
Located within the city of Dubai, the highlight of a tandem experience here is the stunning view of the iconic Palm Jumeirah island from 13,000 ft. You can also purchase third-party insurance and pay to receive an Instagram-friendly video edit at this location on the day of your skydive.
Weights & BMI:
- A minimum degree of fitness is required to complete a tandem skydive and to ensure a safe landing for you and your instructor. Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is an indicator of this.
Skydive Dubai requires each tandem customer to meet both, the weight and BMI requirements listed below. These are the equipment’s manufacturer’s requirements and we cannot make exceptions for safety reasons.
Weight: 90.0 kg/ 198.0 lbs or less.

If you are between 12 to 17 years of age, you will need the signed consent of a parent or legal guardian on the Parent Consent Tandem Waiver. It is required that the same parent or legal guardian accompany you on the day of your skydive. Please note, you will not be allowed to skydive if they are not present. Additionally, your parent or legal guardian must also carry a valid and official government photo ID (Emirates ID, driver’s license, passport).
Skydiving is a weather-dependent sport. High-speed winds, poor visibility, rain (yes, it is known to happen in Dubai) and low clouds, are just some of the reasons that can delay, or even cancel our skydiving operations.
In case of bad weather, our team will announce a “standby”, which means we have to put our operations on hold. Regular announcements will be made updating you on the conditions while you wait at our locations.
If the weather shows no signs of improving and we have to cancel operations and you cannot reschedule for the next available date, you will receive a refund.
While we always do our best to communicate operational changes, Skydive Dubai reserves the right to close our dropzones without any prior warning. In this case, our team will contact you by phone or email to cancel or reschedule your skydive.
Skydive Dubai is not liable for any costs (travel, stay, etc.) incurred by the individual in the instances mentioned above.
Refunds are only issued when we cancel skydiving operations due to bad weather.
We cannot issue refunds for (examples):
- Customers can purchase a special Instagram video edit at our Palm Dropzone for an additional fee of AED 100.
