A Tandem Skydive 15K ft (4,600m) is the perfect way to try Skydiving for the first time. No previous experience is neccessary. After a short briefing of no more than 20 minutes you are ready to be fitted into your harness by your experienced skydive instructor. You will fly up to 15,000ft in a fast aeroplane designed specifically for skydiving. The view on the way up to altitude is breath taking. The Algarve coastline to the left of you and the beautiful mountains to the right. Your instructor jumps from the plane with you securely fastened in front of him. You then free fall for 1 minute travelling at 120mph- giving you the unforgettable adreniline experience of a lifetime before your instructor opens the parachute and flies you back down to earth.
