Jump with a Professional Instructor

Tandem Skydiving in portugal is Skydive Algarve!

Skydive Algarve is located in Alvor, Portugal. We are where you skydive in paradise.

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 an optional outside video and photo package (or alternatively the handycam option which is a camera used on the wrist of your tandem instructor) 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 Facebook 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 onto a USB stick with music and title screens, and on the same USB you will also receive a full set of high-quality digital photos.

Make sure you pre-book to guarantee a cameraman is available for your jump. You may be able to arrange it on the day subject to availability.  

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 USB pen with 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.

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE THE FOOTAGE YOU’LL RECEIVE FROM: HANDICAM
AND WITH AN EXTERNAL VIDEOGRAPHER YOU’LL RECEIVE FOOTAGE LIKE THIS.
