Jan and his crew gave us the most memorable experience ever for our honeymoon. Flying down signal hill with Jan was just great. He and his team are handling everything with care and you can easily understand how much experience and passion they have for what they do.

I climbed Lion's Head and it was as a great experience. Unbelievable views of this city... The adrenaline and unparalleled views I got to see from paragliding beats the view from Lion's Head and anywhere else in Cape Town. The team was very professional. I felt safe at all times. All staff members were super cool they also take great... More

It was a really good first experience for me and my wife. This was the first time we were paragliding and it was fun. I had a slightly shorter flight (8-10 mins) while my wife had a longer one about 15 mins, it also depends on the winds. We jumped from Signal hill to land at sea point. They also... More

Para taxi was my first paragliding experience. I had imagined it would be fearful and windy. I had only bunji jumped before. But paragliding was so calm, stress free... A promenade over the city so simple, a new dimension so easy to reach, so beautiful... I would never have tried it unless a Seapoint underwater Lion called my attention to... More

Did this on a Saturday morning. Great activity that does not take all day. Left hootel on waterfront at 8:30 am, were back at hotel eating breakfast at 10:30 am. The paraglide is amazing. First you get the view off signal hill, then the run off the hill and then you glide out over ocean and the beach, landing softly... More

Jan and his staff were very efficient making the arrangements for our "glide". The fact that Jan kept us up to date as to when the conditions were or were not right for paragliding really put us at ease. On the morning Jan was punctual. His instructions to us were very clear. Jan is very professional in his approach and... More
