Skydive Algarve is the newest addition to the Swallow Group, which also includes Skydive Hibaldstow in the UK and Skydive Spain near Seville.
Originally established in 1999, but under British ownership since December 2014, Skydive Algarve have developed this fantastic skydiving location and made it bigger and better than it already was.
The Skydive Algarve drop zone is open 365 days a year and we are committed to flying a fast turbine aircraft to 15,000ft (4600m), offering one of the highest altitudes for skydiving in Portugal and one of the best skydiving experiences with spectacular views over The Algarve.
The team of staff include full-time, highly experienced skydiving instructors who between them speak several languages, allowing us to welcome an international clientele and offer AFF training in multiple languages.
The Swallow Group drop zones, owned by a skydiving family, are well-known for flying hard and flying high with a reputation for efficiency and excellent safety standards.
We also lease and maintain our own fleet of aircraft from Wingglider Europe which consists of an extensive aircraft engineering department and ATO enabling training and examining of pilots. Please see our aircraft page for more details on our jump planes.
The Swallow Group also offers sail training opportunities on a traditional tall ship ‘Maybe’. Maybe Sailing focuses on enabling underprivileged children to go sailing and strongly believes in the benefits of sail training in youth development.
