Skydive Algarve, under new British ownership since November 2014, is a fabulous dropzone located in the sunny coastal region of Portugal and is now open FULL-TIME with a turbine aircraft flying to 14,000ft (4300m)

The views from the air are second to none, and Skydive Algarve is a perfect location for you and your family to enjoy the winter sun with cheap accommodation and car hire, and only 40 minutes drive from Faro airport. The lively tourist town of Alvor, full of shops and bars, is less than a 10-minute drive from the DZ and you can even choose a hotel on the beachfront.

Superb DZ - Love it !

Skydive Algarve Rated 5 by: Si_Fi on 2015-06-22

Pros: Phenominal staff !!!
Cons: None

Just returned from my second visit to Skydive Algarve. The new ownership have definately delivered a whole new vibe into the place. It was good before they took over - but it is waaaaaay better now. Safety is high on the agenda - which I like. DZ briefing is very straightforward with everything fully explained and outlined. Packing area is good and is well maintained. Dornier is superb and very quick to reach altitude.

The staff are absolutely brilliant - every last one of them ...... I can't praise them highly enough. All very willing to help with every aspect of visitors' requirements including tips on packing, Canopy skills etc etc.

Location is excellent if you want to combine a family holiday with the occasional jump or two. The onsite catering is provided at the Airport Restaurant in the visitor's entrance - and is very reasonably priced indeed !!

I thoroughly recommend Skydive Algarve and can't wait to get back for the Autumn Boogie later this year

Pros: friendly owners, location, views, aircraft, weather everything
Cons: none

Lovely drop zone. I was at the the last xmas boogie, I arrived with a little over 100 jumps. They cater for jumpers of every experience and we were made feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. the owners and staff are very helpful. Views are spectacular. The dornier is amazing getting us to 15k in about 8 min. I would love to return soon

This Dz is AWESOME

Skydive Algarve Rated 5 by: ceaser999999 on 2013-01-18

Pros: GREAT environment , CRAKING staff and the view:)
Cons: none

This DZ is awesome, from big turbine aircraft doing load after load to, beech jumps , amazing coaching available, great people , cool cafe and bar :P (skycafe) and gorgeous scenery with a view of the southern coast of Portugal .

I love this DZ why people go to Seville or Emburia is beyond me as SKYDIVE ALGARVE is the place to be . There is nothing better than flying your wingsuit parallel to the sea and deploying in the lovely warm sunshine in such a beautiful place .

The vibe at this DZ is as good as you can get and the amount of friends you make out there is just as good.

See uses out there BLUE SKYS :)

Skydive Algarve Rated 5 by: MiaUK on 2012-12-27

Pros: Great staff, amazing views, good weather!
Cons: None!

Visited here in September whilst on holiday in Portugal, to do a tandem jump.
Was welcomed by all the staff, and made to feel comfortable.
The weather was great, no clouds at all, could see so much in the air!
The friendly staff are what made the experience so memorable, they were fun yet so professional at the same time!
Prices are very reasonable, and i plan to go back and complete the AFF course with them.
