Always wanted to do this and my son-in law arranged this for my birthday. My husband was in on the surprise. It was more than I imagined. Truly a nice crew and a memorable experience. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

It was first balloon ride for me and my wife. Tim was an experienced pilot who had worked in Swiss alps before. And had great stories and anecdotes to share. The view from the top was astounding. And we enjoyed the landing, where the pilot flew it over the multimillion dollar homes and very low.

Something that often goes unnoticed or unappreciated in the world of consumer business and especially the business of travel and tourism. I'm planning a trip for my wife and me to Southern California and was making specific plans when I cam across SkySurfer Co. My wife is pregnant so I thought it was a good idea to email them and...

I surprised my wife of 51 years with a Balloon ride over Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe. The trip was as good as it gets. The Balloon crew was very personal and professional. I would recommend this ride to any of my friends.

We had a beyond awesome first time hot air balloon experience! Our pilot Tim was great and very knowledgeable about ballooning. The basket has little foot holes in the side to act as a ladder, which was good. For some reason, the procedure for getting into the basket never crossed my mind! The initial ascent was a little unnerving, but... More

We just went on the Del Mar sunset flight and used a groupon.. We had to rebook this flight three times as the company informed us they look for near perfect weather conditions before going up.We thought this is a good sign! You are requested to provide your weight as this indicates how many individuals can go in the "basket"... More

So we were coming to the San Diego area for a short vacation for my boyfriend's birthday and asked him what he would want to do while we were there. He saw some videos on youtube and picked this. After some research we picked this company. We did the Del Mar Sunset ride. Along with my boyfriend and I, we... More

Had a wonderful time in the air with SkySurfer! We were in the air for about 1 hour and 20 minutes and got to see the sun set while we were in the air! The crew was very professional and fun! Definitely a great activity to do with your friends or to bring out-of-town visitors to! Whole thing takes about... More

We went on a sunset hot air balloon ride in Del Mar on August 21st. The ride was amazing, and the time during the setup and take down of the balloon was also a lot of fun. The only negative part of the trip was waiting to determine if the conditions were safe for them to launch the balloon (I... More

They have a 250 lb limit per person. While making reservations, I estimated my husband's weight at 275. I was told my weight of 130 could not make up for my husbands weight and that we would run the risk of being kicked off the flight due to excess weight. We were also told that to avoid that happening, we... More
