Fantastic coastal DZ

Skydive Empuriabrava Rated 5 by: Bokdrol on 2017-10-28

Pros: Easily accessible
Cons: The wind, when it blows

Just returned from a family holiday in Empuriabrava. Our flat was within walking distance of the DZ. Reception was excellent and docs/kit check/DZ brief handled quickly and efficiently. We were in town for 4 days and had fantastic weather/low winds for all 4. They run a Beech, Twin Otter and Porter - all of which I managed to jump from during the course of my stay. Lifts are turned with little delay - many back to back.The packing area is indoors and spacious. The views when jumping are fantastic. Easily the most beautiful DZ I've jumped at. The restaurant area is still under construction (October 2017) so a prefab is used in the meantime. Plata da dia is excellent. All round friendly place, well run.

One of the best drop zones in the world, providing the full package!

Skydive Empuriabrava Rated 5 by: brunner on 2016-04-26

Pros: Awesome scenery, fun people and great program around the DZ
Cons: Winds can pick up and keep up the jump limit

Great facilities even though it is only improvisation until the construction is done (looks like until end of 2016 it will be done). Great instructors and many coaches as they have all the different teams there. The aircraft fleet is a perfect combination as they have a porter in order to start flying with only a few jumpers but bring out the Otter or even the Beech 99 once there are a lot of jumpers and tandems.
The ocean view and the view over the nice town of Empuriabrava is THE best I have had so far and I have been to Sebastian and other nice places.
Once the winds pick up, you still have the tunnel right around the corner, a beach to kite surf or hang out or many bars and clubs to finish off the day.

One of the best places ever!

trip to empuria in Oct 14

Skydive Empuriabrava Rated 5 by: yeoman5303 on 2014-10-17

Pros: people,aircraft,scenery, facility,office staff
Cons: none that i can think of except my slow packing

Got a week in over there and really enjoyed it. CCI and Marko done the doc/check and checked my old rig which raised a funny comment due to its age and I was quite rightly told there would be no FF whilst I was there. The cross section of skydivers were really good from all nations and they were very friendly and were happy to share with other guys in the lifts didn't see any evidence of fun jumpers being left out for tandems or AFF as per last comment. I missed out for a couple of days due to the jump limit being raised to 400. I would advise fun jumpers to have a good number of jumps under there belts as the limits of 50 and 100 gets put up at the manifest which is very responsible as there is a main road to the north and town to the south. I took advantage of doing a canopy course 101 there with Peter All um who was excellent and whilst I was there I saw zero cutaways and no one got hurt. I will be heading back in the new year.

Past its hayday

Skydive Empuriabrava Rated 2 by: hotham15 on 2013-06-13

Pros: Windtunnel, aircraft, view from the air
Cons: load organising, team monopoly, vibe

I visited here as a fun jumper in May/June 2013 and completed about 40 fun jumps.

Empuriabrava has one of the biggest reputations in Europe but falls so short of the mark in my opinion. They have a brand new wind tunnel and some of the best aircraft I've ever seen. Their new Beech can get you and 19 mates to 13k in 7.5minutes !! amazing.

The major drawbacks for fun jumpers are the complete monopoly by teams and freefly coaching teams which prevent free load organising! Because teams can pre manifest and you cannot, some days we had to wait 2 hours between loads... no thank you.

The DZ has been bought by Skydive Dubai in recent months and there is allot of talk about future plans, however, right now this DZ is not a place I will return to and there a better DZs in Europe.

Fun, professional DZ with amazing view

Skydive Empuriabrava Rated 5 by: A-DZ on 2011-08-08

Pros: Top class instructors, big planes, friendly vibe
Cons: Can get windy

I did my AFF & A license at Empuriabrava in May 2011. Both the ground school and instructor jumps were top notch (thanks, Laurent & Fran!) Though we were winded out the first day, I got my first 29 jumps in 7 days. They had an Otter and a Porter going while I was there, and I hear they have a 3rd turbine during the peak summer months.

For a novice like me, it was quite a treat to be sharing planes with the French national 4-way teams (both male and female) as well as the Babylon Freefly team.

The view of the sea is amazing and they've got a professional photographer there (Mike) who takes some amazing shots. The cafe and bar are good fun and excellent place for watching students' AFF videos and drinking their beer!

I'd highly recommend this DZ to anyone who wants to do a ton of jumping, get licensed, do an RW or Canopy course, or even just chill and watch some insane swooping.
