Make your way to the meeting point and greet the professional skydive instructors. Before training begins, fill out paperwork and sign a waiver.
Join your fellow skydivers for a safety briefing and orientation. Next, step into your jumpsuit and strap on your helmet and harness. Your instructor will double check all of your equipment before the flight.
Board the plane and set out on a 20-minute flight above the Algarve. Marvel at the views from the windows on the way up to the jumping point. Once you hit 10,000 ft, it’s time to jump. When you’re ready, your instructor will push you both out the door.
Feel your adrenaline soar during the 20-second free fall. At just the right moment, your instructor opens the parachute and you float back to the ground, landing on the beach.
This experience is weather dependent. Delays can occur if the weather conditions are not suitable. It is recommended that you allow at least 3-hours for your skydive adventure.
