Delmarva Private Hot Air Balloon Ride

Enjoy a Private One Hour Balloon Flight Over the Delmarva Peninsula

participantsparticipants Price for 2 Participants

Enjoy a romantic Hot Air Balloon Ride for two over the beautiful Delmarva Peninsula. This private airborne adventure begins at sunrise or two hours before sunset when you meet your friendly Pilot at the launch location.

The fun begins as you help the Pilot and his Crew with the inflation of the balloon. Once inflated, you and your guest will climb into the basket along with your Pilot as he finishes preparing for the flight. As the air inside of the balloon’s envelope becomes hotter, it will gradually ascend above the tree tops, over a thousand feet into the sky. As you float in the basket, you will travel at wind speed for approximately one hour. Along the way you and your guest 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.

At the end of your journey, the Pilot will smoothly guide the descent of the basket. Upon landing, you will enjoy a wonderful champagne toast. The 360 degree views of the Chesapeake Bay area make this romantic flight the perfect unique for couples!

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 Delmarva Private Hot Air Balloon Ride 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 do 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.

Question: How many people can I bring with me on the Delmarva Private Hot Air Balloon Ride?

Answer: This experience is for two people.
