Niyama Islands, Maldives, May 13, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / Parachute into paradise with a thrilling new experience at Niyama Private Islands. The new tandem skydiving experience, which has just launched for guests to experience, takes off from Dhaalu Airport just a short speedboat ride from the resort in the Maldives’ southern Dhaalu Atoll.
Tandem skydiving is the best way for dare devils to experience this adrenaline-fuelled sport in the safest and most stunning of environments. Guests play an active role in the jump, descending by freefall over the tropical islands of the Indian Ocean from a height of 12,000 feet, with a seasoned instructor connected from leap to landing. 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, set to a backdrop of spectacular birds-eye views of the resort and the wider atoll.
For photographic evidence, the dive can be captured by a hand camera, 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.
