Description:  If the conditions are right we will watch paragliders fly off 300-foot ocean cliffs above famous Black’s Beach in an updraft first discovered by aviation pioneer Charles Lindbergh. If the winds are light, we can still enjoy fantastic coastal views from the top of the Torrey Pines Cliffs.

Activity: We will visit the area next to take off and landing zone and very possibly speak with pilots or their passengers. We will also walk a short distance to a scenic overlook for another great photo opportunity.  OPTION B: For $150 you can have a 20 minute tandem paragliding ride with a professional pilot. Add 45 minutes.
