My wife purchased me a one hour intro flight for Christmas and I finally got it scheduled four months later due to our busy schedule. The flight was well worth the wait. We took off cleanly at 10:15am and headed west towards Clearwater Beach. We observed 7-8 manatees near the Clearwater Beach Bridge and headed North following the barrier islands... More

This was such a fun time. The pilot (Dane H.) was fantastic. Very competent, professional and courteous. He took the time to not only answer all my questions, but provided a fun and informative flight pointing out marine life and interesting facts.

For vacation I wanted to do something a little more than just visit the beach. Sky surfing was awesome. I was a little nervous at first, but the owner's knowledge, personality, and professionalism put me at ease. I did the 30 minute flight and saw all of Clearwater. I felt safe the entire time. I definitely reccomend this experience. Call... More

What a cool and exciting way to see Clearwater Beach without the traffic! It is an amazing experience to sit back in the open air and take in the sights: hotels, the beach with its lounge chairs and umbrellas, trails through the sand to the water, beach side houses, etc... Best of all was seeing sea turtles, dolphins - including... More

I've been in the aviation business for over 30 years. Dane is top notch! A very experienced pilot / instructor to be sure. I'm very perticular as to who I fly with and with whom I trust my family. Dane is top notch, very experienced, and a true professional. We will be back and we highly recommend Dane and Sky-Surfing... More

I have been to Clearwater, FL for the past couple Phillies spring training seasons and I had never heard of sky surfing until this March. I came down for spring training games this past week and finished my trip with a beautiful morning flight over the Clearwater beach. It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Dane was flexible,... More
