Attraction Details
Owner description: Hang Gliding in the Florida Keys is a must-do for any vacationer in south Florida. Only an hour from Miami International Airport, you can experience the thrill and beauty of a tandem hang glider flight high above the crystal clear waters of Islamorada. With a USHPA Certified Tandem Instructor at the controls, you will be towed aloft to an altitude of 1,500' or 2,500, where the towline is released and you soar silently above breathtaking colors and magnificent wildlife. As you take in the sights and sounds, your instructor will demonstrate how to control the glider and demonstrate basic maneuvers. Just like a sea plane, you will land gently on the soft saltwater on large pontoons, and be lifted from the water back onto the boat deck with the glider by a hydraulic lift.This is an incomparable world-class experience, brought to you by the best in the business, Paradise Hang Gliding.

“Free Bird...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Went with my family just after Christmas 2012. Flew with Scott and Maryanne and Rich. His experience is unmatched and safety is paramount. Never felt nervous just absorbed the wonder of being up with the birds. Got to get the GO PRO video to show your friends and family. Memories for a lifetime! Loved It...thanks so much.

“Security First: that's what I appreciated most with this attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Thrilling experience!!! First time in my life that I was flying free of any strings like a bird up around 1,200 feet and felt secure from beginning to end thanks to the professionalism of Scot, his wife and crew. I did the flight when they were back in Bonita Springs and I can't wait to make it again to their new location at Islamorada. Great, Great, Great!!! Can only give great recommendations to these guys for a great attraction!

“George,Hang Glidiing in the Keys.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I had a great time Hang gliding in the keys. Scott was an excellent instructor. Normally when you think of hang gliding you think of mountains. Your trip starts off in a boat. This is something you want to put on your to do list.
