Skydive Empuriabrava is a dropzone I’d definitely recommend for first skydiving experiences:
Amongst other deals, they offer a package consisting of AFF Course (Ground School & 8 Jumps) + 10 Consolidation Jumps including all gear hire + 7 Nights (Bunkhouse) + 50 € Bar Voucher for  2075.00 €. Planes: Pilatus Porter, Twin Otter

The closest airport is Girona (GRO). A Taxi from the airport to the dropzone costs about 80 € but if you bring time instead of money you can keep it around 10 € with public transport. There is an airport bus to Girona city / train terminal every hour and the train schedule (from Girona to Figueres) can be found here. From Figueres train station to the dropzone I paid 27 bongos for the 10 minute taxi ride but there is also a bus (stop “Cruilla Empuriabrava“). Car hire (Pepecar, Carhire3000) & minibus group transfer options are listed on the Girona Tourist Guide.
