The overall experience from booking to coming back to ground is great. I did a lot of research before i left as my BMI and weight was a prior to concern to me as Skydive Dubai is one of the only skydives in the world where they are strict on BMI limit as well as weight.

I was not sure this was a good decision! I was wrong. I will probably return before my vacation is over thus week. My instructor put me at ease and everyone was great. Fabulous adventure and something that will stay with me for life.

Breathtaking views, seamless operation, supportive staff and a day that I'll never forget. The most gorgeous views on the way down - can see the whole of the Palm which is once in a lifetime opportunity.

I'd been skydiving a few times before making a tandem jump at Skydive Dubai. All of the jumps were excellent experiences, but jumping over The Palm Jumeirah is an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. I have the highest praise for the staff at Skydive Dubai. They are extremely pleasant, well organized, and the jumpmasters... More

I had booked a tandem about 2 months earlier and was looking forward for it eagerly. The short stay in Dubai was fully organized according to it. On Tuesday the 5th May as scheduled I arrived at 1pm and they point blankly told me the jump was cancelled due to inclement weather. I totally understand the act of God cannot... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
