Au programme

You will help us free fly our falcons on the cliffs of La Jolla at the Torrey Pines Gliderport, a National Historical Place and beloved landmark. In our Falconry Experience, offered through Total Raptor Experience San Diego, you'll learn how to call and release one of our trained falcons using a falconry glove, and admire their aerial skills while they soar above 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 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. My hope is to send you home with a new, or perhaps renewed, love for these majestic predators and the environment.

The experience is ideal for special occasions and corporate team building. If you'd like to book a private group please feel free to contact us.

The experience lasts 1.5 hours and there is some standing involved, we can always provide a chair if necessary, just let us know in advance.
Other things to note
The Gliderport has a good cafe and free parking. Bring camera and sunscreen. Please contact me via the "contact host" if your verification takes too long or you want to reschedule a booking.

My name is Antonella, I am a biologist and paraglider pilot. With my husband Dave, who I met while flying, and our friend Terry we opened Total Raptor Experience, www.totalraptorexperience.com, a Falconry School. Together we offer falconry experiences 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.

Le lieu

We'll be at the Torrey Pines Gliderport, a beloved San Diego Landmark tucked between Black Beach, Torrey Pines State Reserve and the Salk Institute. It offers incredible views of the cliffs and the ocean and access to the beach. 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, spot dolphins go by and a number of soaring birds cruise the coastline.

I took my pre teen gkids. They were absolutely enthralled from beginning to end. The hosts were really accommodating and loved to answer questions. It felt like an experience where they shared their passion with others that were interested rather than taking part in a business arrangement. It was very personal and the hosts are great ambassadors for the raptors of this world.

This is a great experience and well worth it. It definitely felt like a once in a lifetime experience being able to interact with these hawks and falcons and be close to them as they are in flight. Our hosts were great and went into detail on how each bird was unique. Plus, we got to learn about conservation. I would recommend this experience for anyone visiting San Diego.

Truly unforgettable experience! We were the only 2 in our group, so we had time to spend with both falcons and hawks! The hosts were very friendly and personable and taught us a lot about birds of prey. As an avid birder, this was an experience I will never forget. Bonus points for getting to watch all of the gliders taking off around us! Would definitely do this again. Both Dave and Andrea are very passionate about birds and were eager to share that passion with others.

This was a great experience. I've seen falconry from a distance at a Ren faire but actually getting to hold the birds was awesome. It was also really cool seeing the falcon grab the kelp from the other bird.

Antonella was an AMAZING guide during our experience. She was super knowledgeable and friendly. Flying the falcons on the cliffs was so fun!!

We purchased this experience for my daughter's 16th birthday. I didn't know what to expect but whatever expectations I had were blown away by the actual experience with Antonella and Dave. They are so passionate about the falcons and really worked hard to ensure that we not only had a fun, hands-on encounter with Sophie the falcon but that we learned so much about the their habits and conservation efforts. We left the experience with a deep appreciation for the falcons and with memories to last a lifetime. Highly recommend this experience! It was totally worth it!
