Balloons Over Georgia’s owners Daryl and Lynn’s flirtation with flotation began as a hobby, and then grew into a full-time family business, allowing them to share the breathtaking skies and sights of Northern Georgia. Helmed by certified FAA pilots and holding up to 16 passengers, the colorful, inflatable vessels haul groundlubbers up and over the skyline, at times skimming treetops or sailing at thousands of feet, depending upon wind, weather, and which measuring stick they use. On days when the clouds cooperatively part, the 40–50 miles of visibility incorporate stunning vistas of downtown Atlanta’s high rises, Stone Mountain’s carved façade, or the vast, glittering puddle of Lake Lanier. Low-altitude riders occasionally spot deer frolicking beneath the craft or observe the grace of a red-tailed hawk hunting unsuspecting prey such as a mouse or a senator’s toupee.

Balloons Over Georgia’s stringent safety experts monitor local weather closely, rescheduling flights at the slightest sign of safety risk. The sky baskets launch between 35 and 40 miles north of downtown Atlanta and utilize several different sites to make the most of wind conditions, lifting off before sunrise or sunset.

Customer Reviews

It was an exciting and beautiful experience! We were in good hands with operator/owner Daryl and his crew, we would do this again in a heartbeat!

Daryl was great, the only complaint was when we landed I think someone should have taken us back to the cars immediately, instead of waiting for the crew to pack up balloon. Saying that I would recommend the balloon ride highly.

a fantastic experience. You get all the fun and they do all the work! A fine tuned machine. Shows up on time, friendly and professional. (unlike another experience I have had). Recommend anyone make a goal to fly with Daryl, save up and do it! The basket holds 16 people so talk your friends into it and go as a group.
