Tandem Skydive 10k ft (3000m)
From $225.26
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Give skydiving a try with a tandem jump above the Algarve coastline. This half-day excursion includes being harnessed to an experienced skydive instructor for a jump at 10,000 feet. Free fall at 120 miles per hour before your instructor opens the parachute and you float back down to the ground. No prior experience is necessary.
What to Expect
Our tandem skydive bookings are usually made for the morning time. We accept bookings at 8:30am, 9:30am, 10:30am, 11:30am and 12:30pm. Skydive Algarve is based at the Portimao Airfield near Alvor in a small town called Montes de Alvor. This is easily accessible from Faro airport approximately 40 minutes via the A22 motorway. We offer the tandem skydive 365 days a year although it is a weather dependent sport- therefore it's always better to call us, on the day of your jump, to check the conditions before travelling to the skydive centre- although here in the Algarve the weather is not really an issue for us most of the year. Skydive Algarve do not provide transport although we can pick you up at Alvor bus stop should you arrive by public transport. We can also help with booking a private transfer upon request or even a hire car should you prefer. The price of the tandem skydive includes all the skydiving equipment- the suit, the goggles and the head wear. This tandem Skydive does not include video or photos although this can be arranged on the day. On the day of your skydive you will arrive at the skydiving centre, the first step is to fill out some paperwork- if you are 16 or 17 years old you will need a parent or legal guardian present to sign your waiver. Anyone over 70 years old will need to take a medical form to be signed by a doctor. Unfortunately anyone over 100kg will not be able to jump. You will then be taken through the airfield security- since it is an active airfield you will need to show your ID which can be in the form of a passport/ ID card or driving license. You will then go through to our Hangar where you will meet your skydiving instructor. You will be given a briefing for your tandem skydive where everything you will need to know will be explained to you. Our instructors are experts and safety is of utmost importance. We are a multilingual Skydiving centre and all of our instructors speak English. Once you are ready with all the equipment and fully briefed for your jump you will take the plane ride to altitude. The aircraft is especially designed for skydiving and gets to altitude very fast. Once you reach altitude your tandem instructor will move with you towards the door of the aircraft- you will then take the leap and free fall at approximately 120mph. This will be the most exhilarating time of your life! At this point your tandem instructor will open the parachute- the ride back down to earth is very peaceful in contrast to the rush of the freefall you've just experienced! The view is just amazing here at Skydive Algarve- the best in Europe for skydiving in fact! Once you land back down to earth you will receive a certificate to take home to show your friends as well as a free skydive Algarve T shirt! Should you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
