awesome place

Skydive Algarve Rated 5 by: higgyirl on 2013-02-05

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.

A very friendly DZ with an old home style

Skydive Algarve Rated 5 by: Bobby58 on 2012-11-11

Pros: Friendly owners, the view, atmosphere
Cons: Facilities

I was in Portugal for a vacation in October 2012, passing by Algarve. I showed up in the middle of a boogie, with a Beach 99, rented for the occasion. I was warmly welcome by Norbert Meier, and his wife Evelin. Safety was the first concern for Norbert who gave me a long briefing on the DZ and all the emergency landings spot 5 miles around... I rented everything (I had only my cards) and Norbert took the time to make sure everything was fine. It better if you bring your own equipment but it was ok for the 2 jumps I was planning to do ! The view is incredible ! Many people on the DZ are coming from England to see some sun... and are very friendly and welcoming. A very good place to stop if your planing on visiting Portugal !

Best drop zone ever!

Skydive Algarve Rated 5 by: Harrisk629 on 2012-10-16

Pros: Everything!
Cons: Only have 1 small plane

This was my first time skydiving and I couldn't have had a better experience. I called them and they picked me up from the train station. The people were nothing but smiles and good vibes. They were all great people. You can't beat the scenery. I got the pictures and video and was very impressed with the outcomes. After this great experience they let me chill in the hanger all day because I was going to the airport and they even drove me to a bus station 30 minutes away to go to the airport. I don't think you can get better than this drop zone. The scenery was unbelievable, you could see the whole coast and capital city in the air and the people were just missing wings to be angels. DON'T THINK TWICE ABOUT JUMPING HERE!
