Melbourne Tandem Paragliding Flights

Firstly, if you’ve ever dreamt of soaring through the sky and wondered what it is like to fly like a bird, then a tandem paragliding flight over the beautiful Victorian coast is the one for you.

Similarly, soar with ease and comfort underneath a paraglider and enjoy the freedom of flight without engine noise – just the sound of the air, brushing on your face.

For instance, on the day, after an introduction to the equipment and safety briefing, you are seated in a secure harness in front of your instructor. With a few steps forward you will be airborne experiencing the magnificence of this adventure.

Above all, our launch locations located at Portsea and Flinders are dictated by the prevailing weather conditions and passengers will be required to contact their tandem paragliding pilot the day prior to or the morning of the flight for final weather confirmation and launch site location.

However, we operate during most weekdays and weekends; however, bookings are essential to secure your place.

We can answer all of your questions in our FAQ section or feel free to contact Updraft Paragliding.

In conclusion, please remember that our wonderful sport is weather dependent, a factor outside of our control.
