If you're a bird lover you'll enjoy stopping by Free Flight. One can visit, pet, and feed a myriad of gorgeous birds. What more could you ask for for a mere 5 dollars? Bring your camera, as some of the birds will actually pose for you. :D

We've been here several times, and bring out of town family too! the kids love it and adults too! The birds will eat from your hand, chill on your arm or shoulder, talk to you! It's great! Very affordable also!

I was looking for something inexpensive, yet special for our youngest grandson in the San Diego area when I stumbled (my fingers in the keyboard) across Free Flight in Del Mar, Ca. For $5.00 for adults and free for little one, it is one of the best bargains in the San Diego area. It was established by a veterinarian as... More

Free Flight is a home for birds who no longer have homes. The initial speech from the owner scared us and we were afraid of getting bit, but once we were there awhile and saw others handling the birds, it made us more comfortable. We bought food to feed the birds. It was fun to have them talk to you... More

These guys really care about the animals. They are associated with the vet next door that specializes in birds. It's teeny tiny, but if you are a bird lover, or have a small child... it is worth spending an hour here. The birds on display look happy and well cared for. You can tell they do this not to make...

Lots of beautiful birds up close and PERSONAL. Some will sit on your arm. However, not appropriate for small children except under close control

A great place to go by yourself or bring the family. Get in touch with nature and the various multicolored parrots. Here is a rare opportunity to actually hold a parrot. Learn about avian behavior and feeding. This is a MUST SEE attraction. Getting one of your kids to hold a Real live parrot and take a photo. Admission is... More

Locals and tourists alike will enjoy a visit to Free Flight exotic bird sanctuary. Admission for adults is only $5, and you can stay as long as your bird-loving heart desires. Children I think are 2 or 3 bucks. You can purchase a cup of food for .50c and have some of the most beautiful birds on the planet eating... More

The place was small but the person that showed us around was great! My son Ben couldn't seem to put Miss Kitty down! She loved him and kinda ripped his shirt apart it was a cheap shirt so no worries, she was a white bird with a great personality! We got to feed the birds and the fish if you... More
