Ride in a Hot Air Balloon Over the Beautiful Delmarva Peninsula

participants Price for 1 Participant

This exciting Hot Air Balloon Ride over the beautiful Delmarva Peninsula begins at sunrise or two hours before sunset, as you help the Pilot and Crew with the inflation of the balloon. Once inflated, you and the rest of the passengers will climb into the basket along with your Pilot as he finishes preparing for the flight.

Once ready, the balloon will gradually ascend above the tree tops, over a thousand feet into the sky. As you float in the balloon, you will travel peacefully at wind speed for approximately one hour. Along the way you will enjoy a bird's eye view of Maryland's Eastern Shore from the air as you sail through the skies, float over corn fields, nearby rivers and treetops.

Towards the end of your journey, the balloon will begin to descend back down to earth where your ride concludes with a wonderful champagne toast. The 360 degree views of the Chesapeake Bay area make this flight a lifetime an experience gift you will never forget! This Maryland Balloon Ride is an amazing airborne adventure, the perfect unique gift for any occasion.

Question: I'm interested in taking my girlfriend on a Hot Air Balloon ride. If I lay out a "Will you marry me?" sign the night before can I ask the pilot to fly over it?

Answer: Unfortunately the pilot cannot guarantee that he will be able to fly over your sign. The balloon is dependent on the wind for direction, and it may not agree with your proposal plans that day. We also recommend you bring a "dummy" ring on the flight. Even the most sparkling diamond is hard to spot from over 1000 feet!

Question: How does the pilot steer a Hot Air Balloon?

Answer: The pilot is depends on wind direction to steer. The wind travels in different directions at different altitudes so by ascending and descending he can change directions. Of course it all depends on the weather on the day of your flight as to where you'll end up, which is all part of the fun!

Question: Is the balloon handicapped accessible?

Answer: Unfortunately no. Passengers must be able to climb into and out of the 4ft high basket. And because you can't always predict where you'll land, you often end up in uneven and/or hilly terrain.

Question: My brother gave my girlfriend and I the Hot Air Ballooning Over Delmarva as a wedding present. She tends to get cold easily. What should we wear and is there room to bring a bag with extra layers?

Answer: You should dress as you would for any outdoor activity: loose comfortable clothing with sturdy footwear. You may want to bring a light jacket for her if it's a cool morning. The temperature will be about the same as it is on the ground. And because the balloon moves with the wind, there is virtually no wind chill.

Question: Where will we land?

Answer: Balloons travel with the wind and cannot be steered. Pilots may, however, change directions by ascending or descending to pick up varying wind directions at different altitudes. Therefore, you will land wherever the wind takes you! Balloons generally land in large open areas such as front and back yards, parking lots, fields, and parks.

Question: Why don't they offer noon flights?

Answer: High speed or unstable winds can make flying the balloon dangerous. Winds tend to be lighter during the mornings and evenings when there are no thermals to contend with.
