Free Flight - Del Mar: Two Admissions or One-Year Family Membership to Free Flight in Del Mar

The early bird catches the worm, but the late bird alights upon the place where the worm once was and pens a haiku about spring. Marvel in birds' many wonders with today's Groupon to Free Flight, an exotic-bird park in Del Mar. Choose between the following options:

• For $5, you get two admissions to the park (up to a $10 value).
• For $49, you get a one-year family membership, valid for up to two adults and two children age 12 or younger (a $110 value).

Free Flight's tropical-plant-bedecked facility houses hyacinth macaws, vosmeri eclectus parrots, and other exotic birds. Pet, hold, or discuss airline baggage fees with the chatty winged creatures, who each possess a unique personality and vibrantly hued plumage. The passionate and knowledgeable staff aids in human-avian relations, helping guests interact with and learn about the numerous winged beauties. With a one-year membership, families enjoy unlimited visits to the park, providing ample opportunity to invent new birdcalls or to feed the gracefully moving fish living in the tranquil koi lagoon.

Free Flight

Since the age of 7, Dr. Robert Stonebreaker shared a special affinity with all birds. Wanting to bring people closer to his feathered friends, he lent his passion to Free Flight in 1989, helping evolve the avian boarding and breeding center into a sanctuary where visitors could interact with the exotic creatures. Amid open air and emerald palm fronds, guests can let a yellow, orange, and green sun Conure perch on their arm or pet a Cockatoo. The tropical oasis includes a koi pond, where schools of shimmering Koi swim under the flaps and calls of colorful Macaws.

Dr. Stonebraker tragically passed away in 2010, but the team at Free Flight has upheld his tireless work by fostering human-avian relations and furthering visitors' understanding of parrots. Free Flights also encourages involvement through donation, membership, volunteer opportunities, and, most notably, education programs.

I was surprised at how closely we were encouraged to interact with the birds. There was a beautiful variety of birds and our children loved how expressive and how much personality some of them exhibited! The staff were good about answering our questions. There was very limited signage so be sure to ask questions because then it's quite educational as well as very interesting!
