Skydive into the Tropics at Niyama Private Islands

Skydiving has been introduced in the Maldives and can now be experienced by guests at Niyama Private Islands in the country’s southern Dhaalu Atoll.  The new tandem skydiving experience, which launches for guests to experience this month, takes place from Dhaalu Airport just a short speedboat ride from the resort.

Tandem skydiving is the best way for first-timers to experience this thrilling, adrenaline-fuelled sport in the safest of environments, with the opportunity to descend over the tropical islands of the Indian Ocean.  Guests play an active part in the jump, descending by freefall and parachute, with the seasoned instructor connected from the leap to the landing.

The exhilarating experience begins with a seven-minute speedboat ride to Dhaalu Airport on a neighbouring island, followed by a short briefing before boarding the plane for a 20-minute ascent to 12,000 feet.  The jump involves a one-minute freefall at the extreme speed of 200km/hour before the parachute opens for a five minute ‘flight’ down to the white sand beaches, whilst enjoying spectacular birds-eye views of the resort and the wider atoll.

The tandem sky-dive costs from USD 639 per person (based on two people skydiving) including the roundtrip transfers to Dhaalu Airport. The dive can be captured by a hand camera for a small additional charge, whilst for those wishing to share their full dare-devil experience with family and friends and on their social channels, an outside camera can be arranged with a separate skydiver, to create the ultimate memories.

Niyama Private Islands offers a collection of 134 villas, suites and pavilions, located over the turquoise lagoon and dotted along the beaches of two islands – Play and Chill, which are connected by a bridge. The laid-back resort offers an abundance of space and privacy and a multitude of experiences tailored to adventurous honeymooners, active couples and style-savvy families.
