Delmarva Private Hot Air Balloon Ride

Enjoy a Private One Hour Balloon Flight Over the Delmarva Peninsula

About This Experience

General Information hide

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 gift for couples!
