Coastal flight Comparison

03.30am to 04.30am (Time varies seasonally and with your location)

It's NOT available on all wind directions and the weather is difficult to pick in advance. It takes an experienced Pilot to pull it off and we have just the guy to do it! Coastal flights operate only around 30% of the days in a month, sometimes not for weeks on end, any weather guru that says they can predict it in advance is obviously better than the BOM.

Our team of pilots is Australia's most experienced with the record for most reliable balloon ride take-offs in the southern hemisphere, in particular, our Coastal Pilot has an intimate and detailed knowledge of the Coastal flight conditions and will have the longest and best available flight path available on the day for your enjoyment. Why we are different - we won't take your money and then switch you without discussion or your knowledge to a hinterland flight like the others do 70% of the time. Sure its a nice flight, we fly there too, you can book our hinterland and Vineyard flight on this site and its a little cheaper too, but it isn't what you wanted or thought you had purchased when you went to try and buy a Coastal Gold Coast flight.

With an early morning pick up from accommodation in Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, Main Beach or meet at Nerang or Marriott. Air-conditioned coach transfers to our Hot Air Balloon launch site, no bumpy four-wheel drive journeys with Hot Air. Your confirmed Pickup/Meeting time will be issued as soon as you reserve your booking and varies with the seasons.

07.00 - 07.30 am

Your team of pilots, drivers and crew are expert and knowledgeable with some amazing facts to share about Hot Air Ballooning. Your balloon crew driver is ready and waiting to answer all your questions and have a bit of fun.  We're pleased to say our team it's a fun and highly trained customer-focused crew are well it's in maximizing the enjoyment to be had you can see that from any of our reviews on the web. 

Enjoy a flight along the Gold Coast City coastal strip,  other operators fine print terms and conditions cover them for short flight times and "operational reasons" to cut your flight short.   If Hot Air Balloon Gold Coast doesn't give you a city flight - we will give you a full refund - its what you paid for after all. Ask "the others" for the same assurance, they're cheaper for a reason.

After landing there is some Hot Air Balloon pack-up games and lots of laughs, it's a lot of fun.

All vehicles have cranes and automated features to assist in the lifting an loading.  We are the Only operator to have these innovations

It was my first ever ballooning experience and its definitely a memorable one! The whole tour was very well organised with very humorous and friendly staff accompanying us throughout the experience.
