Balloon Ride Testimonials
Roxanne - April 20th, 2016
"My husband and I took our first balloon ride this past Saturday and it was great!! I was a little nervous at first, but Daryl, our pilot, quickly put my fears to rest. His knowledge and experience made this trip a very memorable and enjoyable one. I would highly recommend Daryl and his crew to all my friends and family."
Barbara - June 1st, 2016
"Thanks to you and all your hard work straightening this out, we accomplished our ride on 6/01/16. Jason, our pilot, made a hot air balloon souvenir for me out of the cork from the champagne bottle. He was not only professional, friendly, and made us feel at ease the entire time. I "highly" recommend him for any rides in the futire. My son-in-law, daughter, and I had a blast! Again, thanks!!!"

A simple yet tranquil Chesapeake Balloon Ride
There's no better option for a Chesapeake Balloon Ride!
Trust us for your Shared Chesapeake Balloon Ride!
Chesapeake Balloon Rides offers a full spectrum of different Hot Air Balloon Ride Packages. Going on a shared balloon is the simplest way to experience a Chesapeake Balloon Ride. Most hot air balloon baskets can hold anywhere from 2-8 passengers during a single ride. A shared Chesapeake Balloon Ride is just as it sounds; you will be sharing the basket with as many people as it takes to reach capacity. You can bring along enough people to fill the basket and enjoy a Chesapeake Balloon Ride with all of your friends! Be sure to ask about the basket’s capacity to ensure that your party comfortably meets the space/weight limitations.
Make your Chesapeake Balloon Ride a private one!
Chesapeake Balloon Rides with a hint of romance!
In case a shared basket is not romantic enough...
Is your sense of romanticism a bit on the adventurous side? If so, embark on a Chesapeake Balloon Ride with that special someone and enjoy an intimate setting with a spectacular view. Love knows no bounds and nothing says that better than giving a unique journey through the sky with a Chesapeake Balloon Ride!
Rather than sharing the basket with others, the pilot will reserve the whole basket for yourself and that special someone. It’s hard to compare any Chesapeake Balloon Ride to another, but an exclusive basket makes your balloon ride that much better. Spend up to 1 hour floating over Chesapeake in a private hot air balloon made for two.

Beautiful Chesapeake is one of the most spectacular places to have a hot air balloon ride! From the alluring scenery of the National Wildlife Preserves to the gorgeous Lake Drummond, this city has the best sights in all of Virginia! So why come here to take a balloon ride?
Other than the stunning landscape and potential to see rare views of local wildlife (Ospreys for example);, Chesapeake has the most options for you to virtually guarantee your experience to be a unique and memorable one. While "options" may sound like the end all be all in terms of reasons behind why you should fly here, there are many factors that are limited to achieve the same memorable result. For example:
Passenger (Options);:Do you have your friends in the city for a visit to historic downtown? If so then you would want a shared ride so that everyone can come. If your event is more of a private affair such as a romantic first date, or a proposal than an intimate exclusive ride would be the best to choice for just the two of you.
Time of Flight (Limits);:For ballooning there are two times of the day that are best to fly as too cold or hot temperatures can negatively impact the balloon and the air within. So most ballooning companies fly at either sunrise or sunset. This is not a bad thing however; this provides the most ravishing views of the area, namely her Great Dismal Swamp and bay area.
Location of Flight (Limitsand Options);:This is one thing that is optional but with limitations as well. Our network of affiliates makes this optional allowing you to choose from many locations (not just Chesapeake); to fly from. However, in terms of the day of your flight our launch site is determined by the wind speed and direction of that day. This is not predetermined any earlier than 12 hours from the time of your launch.
What You Will See (Variable);: We cannot guarantee you will see specific landmarks or wildlife especially due to us having to choose a takeoff site and trajectory so close to launch time.
Length of Time in Flight (Limits);:The length of time you will be in flight is dependent upon the wind, weather and availability of landing sites along the path of the balloon. In other words if it is too windy or not windy enough it may cut into the ride time or if we are limited to landing sites. However, you can plan to spend at least 45-60 minutes in the air if not more.
Landing (Limits);:We typically land in large clearings with plenty of space and level ground, as there are restrictions placed on us by the FAA for safety, this unfortunately is limited. However, on rare occasions we may be able to lower the balloon down to skim large ponds or lakes and allow you to pick a leaf or two off a beautifully adorned tree should the opportunity present itself.
Tradition (Options);:While the basic tradition of all balloonists is to have a celebratory glass of champagne after the flight we can substitute this should you request it.
Once combined, these factors will always give you the absolute best result you could ever reach, an unforgettable voyage in flight over Chesapeake.
