Remember that childhood wish you had that you could fly? Well, a tandem jump with Skydive Algarve comes pretty close. And a free fall 'Skydive' above one of the most stunning coastlines in Europe is a very original way to appreciate the scenery.
Skydive Algarve is located just outside the village of Alvor at the Portimão municipal Aerodrome, and offers assured and professional expertise to novices who wish to experience the thrill of skydiving with a tandem skydive, as well as courses and events for experienced jumpers.
For an amazing and exhilarating adrenaline rush, the Tandem Skydive is hard to beat. Tandem jumping is the best way for novice jumpers to quickly experience the rush of free fall and parachute jumps. Very little is required from the novice jumper - the instructor is in control of timing, harness, parachute and landing, ensuring safety and maximum enjoyment.
Once you have made the momentous decision to jump out of an airplane, the advantages of doing so in the Algarve are many. The weather - clear blue skies and super visibility. The scenery - Skydive Algarve's Dropzone is near Alvor, a lovely little fishing village and home to an amazing beach, protected wetlands and beautiful coast, so the flight prior to your jump actually becomes a panoramic scenic flying trip along the Algarve coastline. The costs - Tandem jumping with Skydive Algarve is significantly cheaper than in most northern European countries.
Following a briefing and instruction session with Skydive Algarve's coaches at their base and prachute centre, it's time to take to the air. The amazing views will help calm those nerves as you near the jump spot. At about 15.000 feet, with the Algarve spread out beneath you, you will climb out of the plane, safely harnessed to your instructor, and experience an adrenaline rush like no other. The actual freefall lasts around 60 seconds but those memories last a lifetime. With a whoosh, the parachute opens at 6.000 feet and you fly down to earth, enjoying about 5 minutes of floating freedom. And if your want a video memory of your jump, Skydive Algarve can provide an outside video and photo package filmed by an external cameraman so you can take the memory of the most exhilarating experience of your life home to show your friends and family.
