“Excellent and Felt Very Safe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Had a great tandem jump and felt very looked after by Norbert, Bruno and Daniel. They had a good level of humour but made me feel safe through their confidence and clear knowledge of what they were doing.

They could not do enough to help and the on site café / bar was a good place for non jumpers to wait

I'm not sure I would jump again as terrifying and ticked off "bucket list" but if I did then I would want to do it again here.

“Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

My husband is a sky diver and we came to Alvor just to go to Skydive Algarve. Everyone was super friendly. I'm not a sky diver, but I enjoyed getting to know the owners of the dropzone!

“Sky diving experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We came here for a quiet afternoon. Watch or take part if you dare ! Great cafe with views of the landing strip. Spectating free. Watch the coloured chutes gliding noselessly through the air.

“You will want to do it again!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

This was my first tandem jump and it was amazing!! (was already on holiday here with my boyfriend).
The staff were all so friendly, and made you feel very comfortable and relaxed. We both got our jump filmed and photos taken, can't stop watching the film and wishing i was back there!
The views were incredible, and the great staff really helped to make the day so memorable!!
