We had an amazing time. I was a little nervous at the thought of flying in an ultralite and not very excited about it at all. To my surprise, I had fun and loved how quiet and smooth the ride was....not scary at all. While visiting Clearwater, we also went jet skiing and parasailing, but sky surfing was the best... More

Everything about this tour was excellent. Dane is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to accommodate a morning flight for me on very short notice. The airport was easy to find and close to the local hotels and beaches. Once in the air, Dane pointed out manatees, dolphins and stingrays. It was an awesome and unique way to see... More

I took my first flight with Dane two days ago. It was a fantastic experience all around. The weather was gusty, but any anxiety was quickly alleviated by my pilot, Dane. He is knowledgeable, extremely congenial and the result was that I simply enjoyed the ride from beginning to end. I learned enough to pique my interest sufficiently that I... More

This was one of the most exciting hours of my life! The scenic flight was incredible, Dane was kind, knowledgeable, and encouraging. Taking control of the aircraft was one of the biggest thrills ever!! This is definitely a 'do over.'

Great experience! I should preface this by saying I love to fly and this is one of the most visceral ways of doing so. The trike is basically a motorized hang glider. It feels solid and sturdy while being open to the elements. Dane knows what he's doing and throughout the 30 min flight I always felt we were safe... More

I decided to do this with my boyfriend for his birthday. It was such a cool experience. The views are amazing and both of us were able to spot some dolphins, turtles, and manatees. Dane, the pilot is so nice and makes you feel very comfortable! I highly recommend giving it a go! I felt very safe the entire time... More

Great trip, great views, great time. Not to be missed when in the Tampa Bay Area. It is indescribable. The beaches are better at 400 feel. Saw dolphins, manta rays, turtles. Dane does a great job of pointing out landmarks, sea life, and explaining the nuances of flying and enjoying the thermals. Taking the controls for a while give the... More

Words do not do this justice. From the flight to the pilot everything was beyond amazing. I will travel to clearwater again to specifically do this. I can't wait to do this again!!!!!
