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.

Unique Keys Adventure

I recommend that everyone with a sense of adventure see the Keys from this view! It was an awesome experience! I can't wait to get a group together and go back soon.

Amazing experience, our family had an incredible day of adventure and fun. When they let go of the rope you are actually flying like a bird, wow. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly.

My whole family enjoyed hang gliding with Scott and his crew today! My young daughters were nervous before arriving but Maryanne put them completely at ease. Very safe, professional and expert. The entire experience was exciting and spectacular. Scott went out of his way to give us the best flights mother nature would allow.

This was amazing. Crew was great! The pilot can make it a smooth ride or do some tricks if you want. I felt so safe, I even let my 10 year old who really wanted to go (but I did not want him to) fly after me. Highly recommend! We saw a a lot of sea life from boat and... More

This flight (August 2, 2013) was a birthday present for my 13 year old son. Scott and the crew did an excellent job. I was impressed with all of the safety procedures. My son enjoyed the flight immensely and was wearing the biggest grin I have ever seen on his face after he landed. This is a unique experience that... More

My family and I visited the keys. We stopped at key largo visitor center. It was about 4 PM, which mean that we didn't had a lot of options, so we order a glide to my son at the Paradise Hang Gliding. It was 160 $ (149+TAX) and we paid 37$ in advance. We quickly arrived the place., to find... More

Scot T, Owner at Paradise Hang Gliding, responded to this review

Sorry you feel this way, all of our pricing is VERY clearly stated on our website, and the Visitor Center has all of the same information. The $25 fee for riding along is normal and customary in this area for a boat ride of any sort. Our prices are our prices, and we even gave you a discount for the... More

If you've ever wanted to feel what it's like to soar a half a mile above the Earth, then this is a MUST DO! The flight is amazingly peaceful and serene. Any fear-of-heights incredibly disappears. Views of the Keys are as panoramic as you can get. Plus, think of the bragging rights you'll have! Scott is a wonderful instructor/pilot--you'll know... More

We went to visit the Keys on a family vacation. I researched things to do on trip advisor and built a plan for the vacation. I took my 13 year old daughter to this activity as she had parasailed before and enjoyed it. She loved this adventure. The crew was very professional, the experience was what was promised, and the...
