Experience freedom in the skies in Algarve! The highly-experienced team from Skydive Algarve invites you to see how it feels to skydive from 10,000 ft above the ground into blue skies in Alvor. The location of our dropzone makes tandem skydiving special because of the surrounding landscapes - Atlantic Ocean coastline and golden beaches. In this picturesque scenery, together with your tandem master instructor, you will experience 30 seconds of free-falling. All this while maintaining the highest safety standards, so that you can focus only on having fun and enjoying the moment. We are waiting for you to bring you closer to the skies!
- Meeting and preparation:
Our meeting point is on the airfield in Alvor sharply on time. Once there, you head to the dropzone where you show your ID/passport to get to the airside - both skydivers and spectators are required to show their documents. You meet your tandem master and our crew, who gives you safety and equipment briefing. It's time to hand over the equipment and get ready for the take-off.
- Flight and jump:
Once departed, enjoy the outstanding landscapes during the ride up to the altitude of 10,000 ft in one of our planes. When the moment of jump comes, you are safely attached to your tandem master instructor and all your questions have been answered. Your free fall takes the 30 longest seconds of your life until your instructor opens the parachute. Panorama paragliding flight lets you enjoy once again the seaside landscapes for 5min till the soft landing with your instructor's instructions at the dropzone.
- Landing and return:
Because our landing zone is at the dropzone, you are back where you started. After the adrenaline's level decreases, you can collect a personalized skydive diploma at our base.
