“After a short explanation, you and your pilot will take off from a mountain slope of Signal Hill under a canopy that resembles a parachute. Once inflated overhead, you will take just a few steps or a short run to take off from the gentle slope, the wind will catch the canopy and you will be airborne. In the air, complete control over direction and speed gives your pilot the freedom to soar ridges, rise on warm currents of air and cover distance. Great safety record so it's extremely safe and all pilots are highly trained. ”

“The Clock Tower is a truly interesting section of the Waterfront, taking its name from the central clock tower found in this part of the harbour. You access the Clock Tower either by crossing a pedestrian bridge over the water, or by taking the road that leads to the Cape Grace instead of the main Waterfront turn-off. There is a small shopping centre, a scattering of restaurants and some postcard perfect views to enjoy here. Don't forget your camera - you will want to get a shot of the iconic red clock tower!”
