Tandem Skydiving

Jump with a Professional Instructor

What is a tandem skydive?


A tandem jump is our most popular and the ideal way to try skydiving for the first time without any experience needed at all. All our expert tandem instructors all have thousands of skydives and you will jump using a large parachute specifically designed for two people.

Securely harnessed to your qualified tandem skydiving instructor you will experience the thrill and excitement of freefall and enjoy the breath-taking sea views over the coastline of Portugal. There’s a short ride in our specialist parachuting aircraft before you take an exhilarating leap from 15,000ft (4600m) reaching terminal velocity at around 120mph! Your instructor will then open the tandem parachute after 60 seconds of free-falling and fly you safely back to earth.

We offer three different, optional video and photo packages so you can take the memory, of the most exhilarating experience of your life, home to show your friends and family.

Video and Photo Package

Relive your skydiving experience again with friends and family and post your photos on your social media for everyone to see.
We have three options: Your very own skydive cameraman, a handycam or for the ultimate package we have the combo- external camerman plus handycam!. 

A professional skydiving videographer will capture the whole adventure jumping out with you and your instructor in freefall. Your skydive footage will be edited with music and title screens, and you will also receive a full set of high-quality digital photos. 

We also offer the handycam option, where instead of having an external videographer, your tandem instructor will take the go-pro on his wrist. In this package you will receive the 30-40 photos and the edited video footage.

Or, if you wish to have the very best coverage of your skydive, we would suggest you go for the combo package, where you get to have your very own external camera flyer, PLUS the handycam on the wrist of your instructor, giving you the ultimate video and photo package.
