Skydive Portugal was the first company to introduce Skydiving in Portugal and currently its one of the most popular skydiving schools offering courses, jumps and tandem jump at various heights up to the extreme jump at 5000 meters.
2 of our team had the joy to try a tandem jump at 5000 meters, neither had ever jumped before and the Skydive Portugal team took great care of their experience, teaching them techniques and informing them extensively about what to expect from this unique experience.
Skydive is possible in Portugal for anybody with good health and above the age of 16 (until 18 with parental consent), the height chosen for the dive determines its difficulty level and length and people who are slightly nervous about jumping can start at 3000 meter.
How does it work?
On arrival 30 minutes before the jump, each participant will be equipped with a jumping suit and the harness which attaches to the parachutist.
Participants are briefed about the jump, techniques to use and they will be informed on what to expect.
after the briefing members embark the plane and in the plane they will be partnered with their instructor and attached to his or her harness.
After reaching the desired height teams of instructor and student leave the plane one by one.
For several minutes you will free fall and experience the energy of a skydive.
After the skydive the parachute is launched and you will slowly glide your way back to earth. During this you will be able to direct and navigate the parachute together with the instructor.
Your landing is done by the instructor and you will hold your feet of the ground!
Our Go Discover team at first slightly nervous, enjoyed every second of this amazing experience!
