We meet an hour before sunrise in the World Golf Village area of Saint Augustine. We choose a launch site depending on the wind and the weather that day. Once we determine where it’s safe to launch from we put you into our company vehicle and we drive you in our vehicle out to the launch site. There you are welcome to be part of the crew and help inflate the balloon or stand back and take pictures, whatever makes you happy. Then we will fly for about 30 minutes or so to an hour. That again is determined by wind and weather that morning. After we land and everything is packed away we will do a special little champagne (or other special non-alcoholic drink) ceremony in a field nearby. Then we will take you and drop you off where we found you. The whole adventure generally lasts 2 to 3 hours.

Hot air balloons are a timeless and unique form of flight. You don’t feel the wind, you are a part of it, almost not even realizing you are moving. Hot air balloons drift gracefully above the terrain where peace and tranquility reign as you float over the tree tops. The incredible feeling of time suspended as the world drifts quietly below is one you will never forget. Yes, it is truly an amazing and wonderful experience, which can be enjoyed by all. Turn that dream into a reality by seeking the wonderment and grace of A Hot Air Balloon Ride in St. Augustine/Jacksonville, Florida! For many this is a once in a lifetime opportunity! Schedule a balloon flight today!

Upon completion of your flight, we will celebrate your adventures aloft with a traditional, sparkling beverage toast where you can reminisce about your journey with your Captain and crew. You will also be blessed with a special balloonists’ prayer to commemorate the flight.

If you really want to make a lasting impression, a hot air balloon ride is the ultimate "unforgettable" gift. Gift Boarding Passes are available.

Hot Air Balloon Flights

The safest and most beautiful flying hours are right at sunrise when the winds are at their lightest. You will receive a special briefing by your Pilot-In-Command. The flight will last approximately from 30 minutes to hour, this all depends on the wind and weather that morning. We try our best to keep the flights as close to an hour as possible, however, due to the technical nature of this flying area we cannot guarantee flight time, direction or altitude. We do guarantee to get you up in a hot air balloon. You will need to allow at least 3-4 hours for the whole experience.

Weather Conditions

Ballooning is very weather dependent. We always obtain the latest weather forecasts before making a decision to fly. Passenger safety is our prime consideration - so if conditions do force a cancellation we will rearrange your trip for the next mutually convenient date. We are looking for winds that are 8 mph or less on the surface and less than 20 mph aloft (generally above 100 ft), clear visibility and a good wind direction are vital to a safe flight. Generally we will not fly if there is thunderstorm activity within 100 miles of our flight area. If we have to cancel due to wind and/or weather or other circumstances beyond our control we will reschedule your flight for the next mutually convenient date. Sometimes it can take several attempts to get a safe, successful flight off. We ask for your understanding, we want to fly just as much as you do but we want to do it safely.

What Do I Wear?

We recommend you wear casual clothing suitable for a country walk, including long trousers and flat shoes or walking boots. Dress comfortably, and preferably in layers, the early a.m. temperatures range from the 70’s and up in the summer. Dress for the weather on the ground in the winter months. It is usually warmer in the balloon due to the burners. Please bear in mind that fields may be wet or muddy. A hat may be needed for those who are a little thin on top as the burner gives out radiant heat. Don't forget to bring your camera and plenty of film.

Are There Any Restrictions On Who Can Fly?

There are no restrictions but all souls are the same price so you want to make sure that a child's sense of adventure is developed enough to enjoy this once in a lifetime experience. Also, you must be agile enough to climb in and out of the basket and stand for the duration of the flight. If you are in any doubt you should consult your family doctor. You should advise us of any medical condition. Others in your group who wish not to fly may participate by riding in our chase vehicle for a nominal fee.

Reservations and Gifts

Reservations are quick and easy and can be made over the phone with your name, credit card and a few other pieces of information that we will need to gather. After you have completed your reservations with us you will receive further information via text or email detailing our launch site and meet times. If you wish to give a flight as a gift we can personalize boarding passes with your special message and send them out to you via email with full details of how to book the balloon flight.

Cancellation Policy

We do not offer refunds. All flights are wind and weather permitting/subject to availability and 48-hour advance reservations are suggested.

We want to honor your requests as soon as possible, we love to fly! So we try to limit blackout dates, but due to our schedule of out of town events we do have several throughout the year. Most of our black out dates are in the last weekend of October through the 3rd week of November. If you wish to fly during those periods we suggest you call us first to verify our schedule as it does change frequently.

If Pilot has to cancel due to wind, weather or other circumstances beyond our control, your flight will be rescheduled to the next mutually convenient day. Or we may in our discretion issue you a boarding pass for flying at a later date. Please understand that a lot of work and planning is required to organize your adventure so If you must cancel within 24 hours of flight time, a fee, which will total half of your original cost, will be non-refundable. For safety reasons we must fly as close to sunrise as possible - you must be prompt in meeting us. Therefore, if at your scheduled time to fly you are no-call, no-show, or if you are too late (in the Pilot's discretion) to fly safely - any refund is voided.


Safety is our number one priority. We have gone to great lengths to provide the safest equipment possible. The pilot will brief the passengers on their safety and procedures. During the flight passengers are always encouraged to let the pilot know of other balloons, or obstructions such as power lines, fences, ditches, etc., that he may not be aware of. If you have questions, PLEASE ASK. There is no such thing as a "stupid question."
Hot Air Balloons are aircraft, and as with all forms of flight, there are possible risks. It is important that all passengers understand and realize these risks of personal injury, or loss of life, or damage or loss of property. The landings are most critical and when higher winds exist, the balloon may tip and drag, bounce along, etc. While this is not the typical "stand up" landing, it may happen. All passengers and crew members will be required to sign an "Acknowledgement and Release" form prior to flight. Our pilots have combined experience in ballooning of over 40 years and safety is our top priority. We fly seven days a week, as wind and weather permits.

Advertising and Sponsorship

Many organizations have recognized the value of aerial advertising. A hot air balloon serves as a floating billboard to display your logo and is excellent for building brand or product awareness. As well as advertising they can be used for corporate entertaining. Taking your clients, competition prize winners, and staff into the air. We can offer you a complete package from the specification of equipment to the detailed operation of the balloon. If you would like further information on sponsorship opportunities please contact us.
