Let your adventure begin with the ultimate sky cruise in one of Aerostat Adventures hot air balloons! Imagine gently floating over the lush, tropical landscape of Florida’s First Coast region while soaking in the warm morning sunshine and enjoying the spectacular view! You can see sites such as the St. John’s River, the skyline of downtown, Jacksonville’s beaches and the Atlantic Ocean or maybe even some of the areas diverse wildlife!
To start our day, we meet 1 hour before sunrise at a predetermined location. We then proceed in our vehicle to our launch site. Once at the launch site, your adventure begins as we inflate our multicolored balloon. To add to your fun and enjoyment, you are invited to become part of our crew team and get a “hands on” experience with the inflation of the balloon.
After the balloon is inflated and all Guests are on board and all systems are “go”, you will then start your flight in the hands of Mother Nature and our experienced Pilots! You will enjoy the thrill and excitement as the balloon lifts off and gently soars over Jacksonville’s unique landscape. After your flight, which is approximately 1 hour and the packing up of the balloon, we will celebrate your flight with a traditional Champagne Toast and the balloonist prayer. Our crew team will then drive you back to your vehicle. Your entire ballooning adventure will last approximately 3 – 3.5 hours.
Not only do you depart with wonderful memories of your hot air ballooning adventure as our Guest, but you also leave as a friend. Aerostat Adventures is proud of not only the dedication our Pilots and Crew have in the safety of our passengers and the flight, but also in their warm and friendly manner with our Guests!
