You don't need any experience to fly through the air on a hang glider or paragliding sail - just courage. Jump off of the beautiful cliffs at Torrey Pines and soar with the seagulls when you go tandem gliding. Your expert partner will take care of the steering and handling so that you can enjoy the sweeping views of the coastline stretching out under your feet.
Hang gliders are suspended from a harness from a light, non-motorized aircraft that floats on the wind. Paragliders use a fabric wing, similar to a parachute, to soar along the air currents over the land.
No matter which sport you choose, gliding is an incredible sensation - and there's no better place in North America to go gliding than at the Torrey Pines Gliderport. With more than 100 years of flying history, this legendary aviation site is the ultimate choice for those who dare to set sail on the breeze. It's also the largest tandem operation in the world.
For more experienced flyers, Torrey Pines Gliderport also offers lesson packages at its flight school so that you can learn to paraglide or hang glide on your own.
Torrey Pines Gliderport is open seven days a week, weather permitting, and is located at 2800 Torrey Pines Scenic Drive in La Jolla - just eight miles north of our hotel.
