Searching for Ballon rides in Boston? This is to the right place! Finding a pilot to provide Ballon rides is easy. Also, you can stop by our ride guide, or look in your yellow pages.
Enjoying Ballon rides is something everyone can $do, but it is also a very popular way to give a gift! When you speak with the ride provider you are considering booking with, be sure to ask how many other passengers will be flying with you.
When it is time for your ride, your company will offer to let you help with the assembly and inflation of the balloon. Go ahead and do it - it adds to the fun!
Be sure to bring a camera and plenty of film!
You'll be surprised at how many pictures you take before, during and after your flight. Bring more film or memory than you think you'll use. Once you're in the air and snapping away you sure don't want to be surprised by running out!
You can bring cameras for still or video, and we suggest you carry them in a protective case. Your pilot may ask you to put your cameras away during landing to make sure there are no objects that could fly out of your hand and hurt someone. Once you're on the ground you can start shooting again.
