I always include the gliderport on tours of San Diego with friends from out of town. Great place to buy a sandwich at the onsite cafe and eat lunch while watching folks jump off a cliff and soar!

Stopped here when visiting the Salk Institute; for the afternoon. Got a lesson in raptors from the lady falconer. Watched and relaxed with coke and hot dogs. Every half an hour or so someone was taking flight. Amazing to watch!

Stopped here while on vacation to watch the guys flying and ended up trying this out myself. My pilot was Charley and he was awesome. You’re flying high above and below the cliff line. Amazing views up and down the coast line. Even flew over...More
