It was my first time skydiving so I was extremely excited and a bit scared but the staff was professional and helpful and also knew how to break the ice ;) Having experienced it I am sure that I will do it again and I can very strongly recommend this place, even if you are a beginner!

From the first email I sent to Skydive Algarve they were amazing to work with. They promptly answered all of my emails and helped me set up a tandem skydive with my sister. When we arrived, they were all so friendly and welcoming and made for a great skydive experience. We jumped out of the plane with Milko and Bruno... More

I had booked a tandem skydive, which also happened to be my first dive ever. Right from the beginning, the staff was very welcoming and professional. On the day of our dive, there were a lot of people who had come, either as students or professionals. But still, the staff gave us good attention and we were treated very nicely.... More

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!

It was our first skydive jump ever and I did it with my wife as a present for her birthday. The staff couldn't be more friendly and professional. 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!!
