I had an amazing experience doing a tandem skydive for the first time with my husband and two girls watching from the ground. The ambience was great; the team was very professional and my brilliant instructor Maud made me feel relaxed enough to enjoy the experience fully. I can only recommend it to everyone! Amazing! Thank you!

We arrived very early in the morning and the place was already buzzing. You could hear many European languages and the atmosphere is very friendly. Our instructors Bruno and Fred are true... More

I actually saw the skydive Algarve centre by accident as i was following the ecovia do litoral by bike. I stopped to check if there was a possibility to make a skydive and it was my lucky day! I have a big fear of heights but the people were very nice and calming, which made it an unforgettable experience!!

I had the opportunity to jump in Tan-Dem with a professional and had all my existing fears fade away. The beautiful weather made it an even better experience I will not easily forget! Would definitely recommend!
