Kandima Maldives, in partnership with Skydive Maldives, has launched a new skydiving programme.

Upon arrival at the Dhaalu Airport, guests are greeted by the skydiving team and take a 15-minute safety briefing before getting on board a specially modified Cessna 208 seaplane. After 20 minutes of flight time, guests launch into the sky at an altitude of around 12,000 feet with an experienced skydiving instructor.

Following a-minute long free-fall at the extreme speed of 200 km per hour, the parachute opens and a five-minute descent later, guests land safely at a secluded beach on Kandima Maldives.

Tandem skydiving is the quickest and easiest way to experience the thrill of a free-fall. Tandem skydive packages range from US$ 594 to US$ 900 + taxes per person (minimum of two guests per booking); and with daily scheduled departures between 0800 hours to 1730 hours.

Group and solo skydive packages range from US$ 79 to US$ 252 + taxes per person. Transfer charges from Kandima Maldives to Dhaalu Airport are additional.

Kandima Maldives’ specially designed K’OnGuard programme and resort team manage all health and safety protocols, with a state-of-the-art medical clinic and round the clock assistance from international doctors on the island.

Neeraj Seth, director of marketing communication and Public Relations, Kandima Maldives, said:

“We are excited to launch this awe-inspiring skydiving experience for our guests at Kandima Maldives. Always aspiring to be the first and bringing innovative active lifestyle experiences to its guests have been at the heart of the Kandima brand experience.

“Adding another new dimension to our high-spirited ‘Lifestyle Reimagined’ campaign, this is one of the first of its kind skydiving programmes in the Maldives. We invite guests to rediscover the thrill of travel, as they can now explore world-class adventure and the breath-taking island views the destination has to offer!” #JustPlay
