Many visitors of Galle have phrased witnessing the fort jumpers, jumping off from the fort into the ocean as one of their key highlights of their visit to Galle. Jumping off the ancient citadel walls started in the early 90s which is much similar to bungee jumping, but a lot more dangerous since there is no safety equipment involved and the jumpers have no clear landing point from their 40-feet high jump.
The act conducted by a group of five boys is located on the Fort Ramparts at the top of the wall known as Flag Rock between Point Utrecht Bastion and Triton Bastion. For those that like to dice with mortality and experience this Fort life on the edge nothing beats watching these lads spring into action.
