Hmmm .. looking at both drop zones , Gan and Hanimaadhoo , it would be difficult to arrange transport from your island to get there .. especially if you need a seaplane ..

It would entail geting back to Male then flying to Gan or Hanimaadhoo .. getting back to Male then back to your island ...

Cheaper to go to Florida and do it ......

lol ... I am a skydiver and will be in the Maldives on those dates!! however, I can't read German but it looks like its only from 4000m up which if I have interpreted correctly is a waste of time Needs to be 12,000-13000 ft for a good tandem appears there is no freefall (and the freefall is the best part of the dive) ...................activegirl

scoobyboy, yeh 13000 ft is great. Will have to see if I can go on my own rather than a tandem, but skydiving with 100% German outfit?(not that I have anything against Germans!)................ activegirl
