Had gone for a tandem dive. The reservation was quick and painless. Getting there even more so, as there are signs leading upto from both north and south. Had to wait around 1hr for my sortie to be called out - filled out the standard disclaimers till then. A quick orientation and harness tightening later, was airborne for my first skydive. You have your own cameraman jumping with you to take snaps and a video (one of the reasons they are so expensive compared to dive centres in the US or NZ). If you're lucky and its a clear day, you'll get a pretty good view of the Palm Jumeira during the dive, and will get to admire JBR during the parachute descent as well.
There is also a little souveneir shop, in case one wishes to indulge.
Overall, very professionally run and good fun!
