Your Travel Experience with Galapagos PRO
Paragliding on the beach of Canoa
Galapagos PRO Recommendation: This excursion should not be missed in your Ecuador experience.
If you fancy experiencing the airy, carefree sensation of flight, paragliding is the way to go - and Canoa is a great place for it.
Standing near the edge of a cliff and tethered to your guide, the heart starts racing when the sail picks up. Before you know it, you're up and there's no turning back.
Float along, taking in the 17 kilometers of beach running from San Vicente to Canoa; you marvel at the sleepy fishing village some 150 meters below; you peacefully drift with frigatebirds in the thermal winds before landing on the beach 20 minutes later.
Fly Canoa is owned and operated by an outgoing American, Greg Gilliam. Greg is a P-4 rated pilot (meaning advanced), with more than 12 years experience. He is possibly the only instructor in Ecuador certified by the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (USHPA). He has a 100-percent safety record for his students. He also offers a rental service for certified European pilots.
Note: This is a recommended excursion that is not included in the tour price. We are happy to organize this tour for you or you book it yourself at the Canoa Beach Hotel.
