Tandem Paragliding Cape Town

Tandem Paragliding Cape Town

R1300/person

A awe inspiring tandem flight from Signal Hill with views of Sea Point, Robben Island and Cape Town Stadium.

With Tandem Paragliding , you as passenger require no previous knowledge of the sport at all. The pilot will give you instructions shortly before the flight. It’s as easy as a few light steps forward (walking/jogging/sometimes a little run) and we fly! We are disabled friendly, having taken wheelchair-bound paraplegics, blind and deaf folks, children from as young as 10 and up to 93 years old . We fly passengers of 20kg up to 135kg in weight, so literally, almost anybody can fly with us! You simply need a good state of health – Good walking shoes – 1 to 2 hours of your time for a standard flight.

When we are in the air and paragliding, you are welcome to try – the flight is a cheap introduction into our sport, so, if the conditions are good, the pilot will offer you the toggles and you can experience what it’s like to be the pilot and paraglide. We regularly show our adventurous clients how its done, as then they can even experience how to thermal the glider themselves with just a few minutes of “showing” from our part.It’s amazing. Simple, easy, safe and for anyone! Those that are nervous get a gentle, slow ride. Those that request it,get aerobatics and a few G’s as we do tricks. We are not macho and are there to give you the flight of your choice.

Our sport is 100% weather dependant and we have gotten really good at judging weather. Our pilots study 6 – 12 different wind and weather websites every morning, thus accurately knowing the weather. Thus there are no time wastes and unnecessary delays. Trust us and we will give you a safe experience to remember forever! If we reschedule or ask you to come a little later, it’s for a good reason. When booking, please try to fly earlier in your time in our great area , as the Cape often has “difficult” weather and folks always regret it when they call on the day of their visit and the strong SE wind is blowing. Our best advice is to try to paraglide in your 1st days in Cape Town and be adaptable with your time.

Our whole experience can take as little as 1 hour of your time (and we can be in the air for 30mins of that!). We fly 365 days a year, from sunrise to sunset (weather dependant). We will arrange a convenient and safe time to fly with you. Sunset tandem flights are a speciality of our company, but optimal flying is generally 9am to 2pm. Sunset flights are scheduled from 5 to 7pm (summer / winter).

At your meeting time, please remember to bring sensible, good, closed shoes (running shoes/ trainers / sneakers /takkies –depends on what you call them!) Mountain / Hiking boots are even better. and any kind of sandal, Croc, flip flop, flopflip, or anything that flips or flops is NOT good. Clothing-wise Shorts if its hot, or Jeans and a t-shirt with a windbreaker are the best attire for the occasion. We include everything that’s needed for the flight (Helmets and all flying equipment). Naturally, its best is to drink lots of water and use that suntan lotion before arriving.

Highlights

Reviews

Amazing Tour! Stunning sights and awesome guides. We had such a great time. We were a large group, but easily accommodated by Adventure Co. The location was amazing, the weather was perfect, and the sights were beautiful.

The company was recommended to us by a friend, and now I can see why! It was certainly one of the highlights of our vacation. The guides were all very friendly, experienced, and professional which made it a real treat.

I was visiting from out of state with my family, most of whom had never experienced something like this before, and we thought it would be a good idea - we're sure glad that we did! The experienced guides made sure that the whole day went smoothly, and luckily for us the weather was great. Highly recommended!
