“"Salto Tandem Jump - Just Did It" www.skydive-algarve.com”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Incredible, unique and beautiful landscape - it was so impressive and emotional! Wow, wow, wow ... . Predestinated for the first Jump Experience and of course for everyone who does appreciate an amazing place on earth. It's hard to find the right words ... . The idea of the jump began with a voucher for the 30st birthday of Adrian. I checked google for 'Skydive Faro" just before our journey to Portugal and one of the first suggestions was www.skydive-algarve.com A real good and informative webpage with facts & pictures, offers etc.
I contacted Evelin Meier, owner and customer service and on the same day i received a kind reply. Even they offered a nice little extra special for the birthday. The Email contained as well a lot of informations about safety and other regulations regarding the jump.
The Day of the Days came closer and closer and the excitement became bigger and bigger. On the day of the best happening of our lifes, we did receive such a warm welcome and we got introduced personally to each member of the team. We relaxed and developed confidence into the team and our adventurous project.
Bruno, the skydive master, gave us necessary intructions and presented the whole equipment. We had to practice some postures after the drop off, some advices how to get out of the plane, how to get ready for the jump, which posture we have to do for landing etc. Everything was practiced on ground before. It was professional and 100% trustworthy! Not to forget the personal encouragement - so empathic and special. Thank you! Real good service, support, informations, communication, SAFETY!!! Great Pictures, ... We do really appreciate that amazing and
adventurous experience of our live!!! The price is absolutely fair!
Grateful & with the best regards from Berlin, Germany, Adrian Küttner & Andy Symonowicz

“Fabulous experience, great views”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

My partner and I both skydive and we were delighted that we were able to include our children too. In the UK the age limit is 16 - At Skydive Algarve the age is 14.

If you are planning in staying in this region then I would highly recommend taking part is this fabulous sport. It isn't as expensive as you might think.

I am able to send people over to Skydive Algarve with a fabulous referral rate so please get in contact before you travel to get a great rate in the Algarve!

“Excellent and Felt Very Safe”
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.

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”
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.
