It was an amazing experience. We were staying in Barcelona city. A 55 minutes in fast train to figueres and a 20 minutes drive took us to Skydive Empuriabrava. Once all the formalities were done, we were directed to the instructors. They were very friendly and kept joking and making us feel relaxed. We each had an instructor and a camera guy. Once all were set, we flew and then we jumped from 4240m height. I didn't even get time to scream and before that the jump was done. After that I was busy enjoying the view and enjoying the thrill of the free fall and floating. It was an truly amazing experience with an equally spectacular view. The divers were really good and they made really a beautiful experience. The photos and video were of best quality. This is a must do adventure sport.

What an experience!!! The place is a three hour drive from Barcelona city and the roads are superb. Reached after pre-booking a dive, had to wait for a couple of hours as the wind speed was not optimum to take the dive. Once the speed was good, we were trained for about 5 minutes by the diver on a few basics, we flew and then we jumped. It was an amazing experience, 1-2 minutes of free fall followed by 7-8 minutes of paragliding.

The view from the top is amazing and the divers are extremely professional and well trained. If you are in adventure sport and have never sky dived, then a visit to this place is a must. Also, do pay up for pictures to be taken during the dive.

Have skydived in Sydney before, but would definitely rank this experience higher. The instructor was very friendly and kept joking and makes you feel relaxed. The best part is that they have an option of capturing your skydive in HD. the video was of superb quality.

It is was great. During my jumping with parachute I enjoyed of incredible view on the seacoast. I felt freedom and independence at those minutes. It is not need to be afraid. SkyDive has very good instructors. It's possible to make photos and video for nice memories. After jumping we had tasty lunch there for cheap price.

As a BPA B licence holder I jumped at SD Empuriabrava for three days (got 19 jumps in) as part of European road trip during Aug 2014. A very professional outfit which has recently been taken over by SD Dubai. Great staff, who are extremely friendly from the receptionists to the packers to the Tandem Instructors. Easy to find, easy to register, easy to pre pay jumps & pack job tickets on line (5% discount if done this way).

Plenty of jumping all day every day from their well maintained and well piloted planes (all of which are turbo prop) so quick up and quick down... Max jump altitude is 14,000 ft.

Good packing area, with plenty of packers, all of who produce consistent soft and on heading openings. During Aug the wind picks up in the afternoon around 15:00 where there is a regular jump limit imposed by DZ control showing a good eye for safety and not just how much money they can make.

During our stay my wife and daughter did a tandem jump each and it's safe to say that they are probably the most fun and professional tandem instructors / camera men I've come across, and my mind was at ease with all things safety.

Awesome spectator area right next to the swoop zone and just across the runway from the general PLA. The sky bar and cafe serves good food and drink at a reasonable price and this combined with the gear shop has everything you'll need.

I haven't got a bad word to say about SD Empuriabrava and will definitely be back.
