What you'll do

You will help us free fly our falcons on the cliffs of La Jolla. You'll learn how to call them to glove (or a hand-held perch if you feel shy) and they'll fly between guests while soaring over the cliffs. You'll get an up-close and personal view of their mastery of flight as they perform simulated hunting behaviors, swooping, ground-skimming and diving at high speed right between us after a moving target. At the same time we will discuss raptor flight styles and how they contribute to the diverse ecologies of different types of hawks and falcons. There will be plenty of time for questions and pictures with our birds at the end of the experience. My hope is to send you home with a new, or perhaps renewed, love for these majestic predators and the environment. The encounter lasts 1.5 hours and there is some standing involved, we can always provide a chair if necessary, just let us know in advance.

Antonella And Dave

My name is Antonella, I started paragliding 14 years ago in La Jolla, and met my husband Dave, also a biologist and paraglider pilot like me, while flying. We got involved in Falconry and Parahawking, and together with our friend Terry we opened a Falconry School called Total Raptor Experience, and advocate for environment conservation. We love to share our love for raptors and for free-flight with our friends and our guests, and hope to get you involved as well.

Where you'll be

We'll be at the Torrey Pines Gliderport, La Jolla, situated over the famous Blacks Beach. It offers the best views of both cliffs and coastline. The area has free parking, is wheelchair accessible, and has a great off-the-grid cafe! On a good day you can see paragliders soar along the coast, and spot dolphins go by. Keep left in the parking lot, leave you car near the palm trees and walk up to the picnic tables to meet us.
