Experience the daring, adrenaline pumping freefall at about 120miles/hour from the sky, to the sun-kissed shores of the Indian Ocean, in Diani.
Skydiving in Diani is one of the popular adventures at the coast for a number of reasons. For instance, this coastal town has great weather all year round. Additionally, its beauty, viewed on the ground and from above ground is unrivalled. This coastal town also has a range of luxury oceanfront resorts and it is about 10 minutes away from Ukunda Airstrip.
The thrilling free-fall and the aerial view of the coastline are two of the most exciting elements of diving from the sky in Diani. Thin air greets a diver after exiting the aircraft, and during the free-fall, the diver is ushered into a zone of warm air as the beach becomes clearer during the decent.
Diani hosts the Kenyan boogie, which is an annual event that is also listed on the international skydiving calendar. Unlike any other boogie, skydivers in Diani stay in a resort on the beach. From this location, there they can reach the airstrip within minutes. With all facilities located so close to each other, divers can make several jumps in a day.
The Kenyan boogie attracts divers from different parts of the world. Non-jumpers too flock the beach to see the stunning free-fall and descent to the ground. Upon reaching the ground, divers exchange stories about their experience and the most exciting moment of the jump.
Tandem skydiving ideally caters for first time divers. A student is attached to the instructor by a harness, and the instructor carries the parachute so the two can dive 10,000ft together.
