This was hands down one of the great experiences of my life. The freedom. The peace and omg the view. The price was cheap for the thrill and enjoyment received. Id definitely do it again AAA+++. The operator was professional and made me feel calm and part of it.

Had the best experience hang gliding with Brian

Had the best experience hang gliding with Brian! I took my boyfriend as a birthday surprise and he was not disappointed. We were both first-timers, me much more hesitant but both felt completely comfortable and relaxed throughout the flight. Such a beautiful way to see the amazing coast around Cape Byron, we even saw some whales! Will definitely be recommending to family and friends.
