Went to this DZ in January, it rained and we had high wind for all but the last day of our visit so I only got in 2 jumps. The staff are excellent, very friendly and the little cafe/bar was great. The aircraft are top notch 2 Dornier and a fast 182 (no farting allowed in the aircraft). I would absolutely go back again, they even gave me a free jump ticket!

Just back from the Alvor spring boogie and of all the DZs I have visited in the UK, Spain, Switzerland and the US I think this is my favourite yet. Very fiendly and welcoming, very smoothly run by Norbert and Evelin, super efficient manifesting by Lizzy, 2 great Dornier aircraft, nice cafe on site, great value accomodation available nearby, and the nice beach resort of Alvor only a few minutes away to keep partners or kids happy. What else? 14k on every lift, great views, the opportunity to do oxygen supported loads to a mind bending 21k, and sunset beach landings. A great DZ and I have already decided I will be going back next year.

Very well organized dropzone in a fantastic picturesque environment. Went there for a few days early January 07, weather was superb. Overall very friendly and accommodating atmosphere. Very helpful staff, also organized our accommodation bookings at very competitive price. Literally no wait times due to two very fast DO 28 going up to 15000 ft. in no time. Amazing, breathtaking sunset loads. Large and clean packing area. Main landing area currently under construction, however still fine. Helpful staff, always willing to support and answer questions. Definitely will be back.

Algarve Boogie


Skydive Algarve Rated 4 by: maestro on 2004-05-25

Pros: Fantastic Boogie atmosphere, friendly locals, cheap beer, great planes...
Cons: Not open all year round

This little aerodrome near the tiny town of Alvor on the Portuguese Algarve becomes home every Christmas and Easter to (mainly) British and German jumpers. The Boogie is well organised, flights to Faro are cheap and accomodation (at the Quinta Nova Sun Appartments) is clean and welcoming. 2 Dornier G92's take you up to 15,000 and the views over the Algarve are amazing. Students (AFF, RAPS and Tandems) are very well looked after and BPA instructors are out there for the duration of the boogie. The locals are incredibly friendly and don't seem to mind us swamping the bars and restaurants twice a year in this otherwise quiet town. Beach jumps and big-ways are frequent, and WARP/ Freefly/ Birdman coaching is available. The atmosphere is always great and the warm blue skies mean you won't want to leave. The only problem is, that this is an active aerodrome and air traffic gets too busy in peak seasons, hence only having 2 boogies a year. Shame, as this would be a firm favourite otherwise.
