Paragliding at Torrey Pines Gliderport

Catch the wind and feel like a bird!

Paragliding is one of the most unique free flight experiences. The coolers part is that paragliding is a 100% man-operated and wind-powered activity. You catch the stream of strong winds and glide above the cliffs, mansions, golf course, ocean, and coastline. Tandem paragliding is a personal ride with an experienced pilot. The flight lasts for 20-25 min. You will land on the beautiful Blacks Beach. Explore the beach and when ready, take a 15 min hike back to the parking lot. Pure thrill, chill, fun and excitement!

Q & A

Yes, no problem.

No, paragliding at Torrey Pines Glideport is a solo experience.

No. Just call ahead to make sure the winds are good for flight and then show up. It's first-come, first-served.

Come in comfortable clothing, but anything is generally fine. Bring athletic footwear like sneakers or hiking boots. Some people do fly barefoot, but it’s not recommended in case you have to land on uneven ground. Generally, flying on the coast is very pleasant, but if you come on a cloudy or foggy day, it’s a good idea to bring a light jacket or shell. We have some in the shop, but not in all sizes. Note that in the Fall and Winter, it can be sunny and warm inland, but a little cloudy and cooler on the coast.
