Please inform the client that a DVD of the experience and a full set of photos are also available for an extra cost of 95€ per person.
On the date of the jump the client must not arrive late as they must allow time to register for their experience. The briefing will be booked for 30 minutes after the arrival time, this is due to the fact that it takes at least 20 minutes to process the paperwork. If people are late and miss their scheduled briefing, the next briefing may take place several hours later, consequently delaying their jump. Please understand that one must allow at least 3 hours for the experience and we operate on a first come first jump basis for each briefing group.
Please find directions to the airfield on our website http://www.skydivealgarve.com. But if you need advice please let us know. On arrival at the airfield the client will need to complete a security form to enter and show their National ID card or Passport to gain entry to the DZ. If they have any trouble finding us please call +351 914 266 832 Please note this number is only available from 08:30 am.
What to Wear:
Please wear comfortable clothing and flat soled shoes or trainers. We supply a jump suit and the relevant head gear and goggles for the jump. For safety reasons and also for one’s enjoyment it is not permitted for tandem passengers to take personal cameras on the aircraft or on the skydive. This includes all types of cameras including GoPros and phones.
Although adverse weather is very rarely an issue in southern Portugal please remember this is an extremely weather dependent sport. If you are travelling a long distance (more than 1.5 hours) and wish to check weather conditions, please call +351 914 266 832 the day before your jump, however we cannot predict the weather and your chances of jumping increase if you are ON the airfield.
There is a cafe and bar situated on the airfield serving hot and cold food and drinks. Spectators are welcome, but children must be kept under control as it is an active airfield.
Terms and Conditions:
Should the tandem skydive experience not go ahead due to any unavoidable circumstance then the client would need to be refunded their down payment by you, the agent.
The consumption of alcohol for anyone taking part in skydiving activities is strictly prohibited. Anyone under the influence of alcohol will not be permitted to jump and will forfeit the cost of their skydive.
Skydive Algarve has a zero tolerance policy on illegal drugs.
