Celebrate your triumph on fear when you embrace it with a sky diving experience plus you get an awesome view of the city from the bird’s eye view. Hurl yourself out of a plane and plunge down into a freefall towards the ground before you open your parachute and take in a spectacular aerial view of Dubai. The best option for first timers is the tandem skydive which requires no previous experience and an expert guide will always be with you throughout your jump.
