Overview

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.

Really fun...but if you are prone to seasickness, make sure the water is not choppy. Flew once on calm water....great fun! Flew another time on choppy....yikes! Once you're in the air, it's fine....it's the transporting via boat back and forth and the bobbing out on...More

These folks have been in biz for 30-odd years, and are the only parasailing outfit on FMB that is Coast Guard inspected and approved. Professional and easy to deal with.
