What You Can Expect

Tandem Paragliding in Malibu

Tandem Paragliding in Malibu

Add a little adrenaline to your California vacation with this Los Angeles paragliding adventure above the famous coastal town of Malibu. This relaxed outdoor activity, offering incredible bird's eye views of the area's rolling hills and scenic beaches, is sure to give you the ride of a lifetime.

Begin your paragliding trip at Malibu's Carbon Beach (sometimes the flight will leave from Ojai depending on wind conditions), with flights departing every 30 minutes between 12 and 5pm. Your exact time will be scheduled upon confirmation with the tour operator. Receive a short safety briefing from your instructor, then get suited up by strapping into your paragliding harness alongside your experienced pilot.

Your paraglider is an inflatable nylon "wing" that fills with air just like a parachute, allowing an incredible sensation of floating as you glide on the nearby air currents. Depending on the option you've selected, you'll either take a 20-minute motorized ride off the beach, or a more traditional 30-minute non-motorized ride, which will depart from the top of a nearby bluff. 

As you glide gently into the sky, your pilot will handle the steering so you can focus on simply enjoying the incredible views. Check out the amazing vistas of the Pacific Ocean and the hills of Malibu down below, perhaps snapping a few pics to remember your amazing flight. Finish your exhilarating ride with a landing back on Carbon Beach.

Très bon professionnel. On se sent en sécurité.

This was without a doubt one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I took the flight on the last birthday of my 50's, challenging myself to make a leap from 3000 feet despite being fearful. I checked that Claude had a perfect safety record, and he made me feel calm. It was more like being lifted off the cliff rather than jumping, and Claude was very skillful and confident in what he was doing. I would do it again.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2008

We just flew over the same spot for twenty minutes, maybe we could have gone out a little further. I was surprised the instructor did not have any liability paperwork to sign and ask us a few more questions before taking us up. Also, I was the first to book and he seemed to have more people and take them out of order. I went second.
