From Signal Hill to the seafront promenade in 4.5 minutes.....but I was told it would take 10. I felt it was expensive for such a short ride. I enjoyed it while it lasted.

This is the best company to go paragliding with. The people are wonderful, the flights are punctual, and they tailor the experience to you! Booking was super easy, as I actually booked 2 hours prior to when I wanted to fly, and received an email within 5 minutes. All responses were immediate, and information was clearly presented. This was definitely... More
