Your safety is our first concern
Safety is the first priority of our Soaring Sports Providence pilots and ground crew. Each flight requires a high degree of skill and knowledge of ballooning, as well as current weather and atmospheric conditions. You can rest assured that our friendly and knowledgeable staff are well prepared, properly licensed and certified, and they are ready to take you on the ride of a lifetime.
A hot air balloon ride is a unique and unforgettable experience
You will see Providence, RI, Narragansett Bay and the vast Atlantic Ocean from a vantage point that you will never forget. And despite wide-held expectations, your hot air balloon ride will be remarkably warm and comfortable. The burners used to heat the balloon (or “envelope” as it’s known to experienced ballooners) keep the air in the basket (or “gondola”) nice and warm. And no matter how high you get, there is no chill from the breeze when you’re moving along with it. In the skilled hands of our experienced pilot and ground crew, even our passengers who say they are afraid of heights, without exception, disembark from their flight saying that their nervousness and anxiety had quickly vanished.
You will float through the air from treetop level to thousands of feet high; it just depends on the winds at various altitudes and good old Mother Nature. Generally, we fly twice a day: shortly after dawn and two hours before sunset, because those are the best times to fly. However, if our pilot determines that it’s not safe to fly, we don’t fly. Again, we find ourselves at the mercy of Mother Nature; but it’s simpler and safer to reschedule your flight than to land a balloon in adverse weather.
See the Shore as Never Before Floating High Above Providence, RI and Narragansett Bay!
Providence, Rhode Island, sits at the mouth of the Providence River, where it meets Narragansett Bay before flowing into the mighty Atlantic Ocean. The river flows through the middle of downtown Providence, with paved river walks, the Waterplace Park Amphitheater and other parks and stopping-off places lining the riverbanks, providing dining and entertainment options to residents and visitors. With roughly four hundred miles of coastline and more than 100 beaches, Rhode Island provides the perfect backdrop for your Hot Air Ballooning adventure.
Like Rome, Providence was founded on seven hills, and it was among these seven hills that our country was born. Rhode Island was the first colony to declare its independence from King George of England. When you book your flight with Soaring Sports Providence, Constitution Hill, College Hill, Federal Hill and other historical sites will make up the ever-changing scenery, without which you wouldn’t even know you were moving.
While you’re in Providence, check out the award winning WaterFire sculpture on the banks of the Providence River, the elaborately landscaped, 427-acre Roger Williams Park, or the Providence Children’s Museum. Take a historic tour through the first colony to declare its independence from Great Britain or check out one of the performing arts or food festivals. As you can see, there’s plenty to do with your feet on the ground.
A balloon ride in Providence, RI, offers an exceptional opportunity to view the eastern seaboard in a way that everyone should. The Narragansett Bay is hundreds of square miles of unrivaled beauty. Spot whales or schools of dolphin in the water below as you float in the sky unnoticed with the clouds (except that you are warm and comfortable). Contact Soaring Sports Providence to schedule your hot air balloon ride in one of the most beautiful spots on the east coast.

Experience an Unforgettable Flight with Family and Friends!
Hot air balloons were the first successful, human carrying flight technology. The first untethered hot air balloon flight took place in Paris, France, on November 21, 1783. That was nearly a century before the Wright brothers took to the air at Kitty Hawk, US. Since that first flight, people all over the globe have floated in the skies for many reasons. Beginning with the American Civil War, militaries around the world began using balloons extensively because they provide an economic, quiet and stable platform for observation. Because of their low cost and stability relative to other means of flight, hot air balloons are also used for scientific research.
The recreational use of hot air balloons has steadily grown over the years as well. The equipment has improved over the years, but the basic technology remains the same: the balloon (or “envelope”), burners to heat the air and a basket (or “gondola”) where the passengers ride. And balloons can accommodate up to 12 people, so bring your family’s friends along too! Perhaps the greatest thing about a Shared Balloon Ride, other than the fact that it’s our most affordable option, is the sharing!
Contrary to many expectations, the balloon ride is extremely stable with very little sense of motion. If the scenery wasn’t constantly changing under your feet, you would hardly know you were moving. Rather than holding on for dear life, all passengers are quickly and completely comfortable and at ease. This leaves them free to enjoy the breathtaking views of “Little Rhodie”, Providence, RI, and the four hundred stunning miles of shoreline along Narragansett Bay and the Eastern Seaboard. And the icing on the cake: the hot air from the balloon keeps the gondola warm, even at very high altitudes – there’s no chill from the wind because you’re floating along with it. You’ll want to wear layers so you can put on or remove items as you prefer.
A hot air balloon ride is unlike any other form of flight. Imagine yourself floating low over the treetops and high among the clouds, chasing the winds. Unlike an airplane or a helicopter, which have to struggle to get into the air, with their noisy engines spitting out pollution. A balloon effortlessly rises into the sky in perfect silence. Even the birds have to work harder to reach the sky. Only the occasional “whoosh” of the burners and the conversation with your company will fill the beautiful silence that exists on the breeze.
The entire process from inflation until you disembark will take approximately 3-4 hours. It will take 30 minutes to inflate the balloon and conduct preflight safety checks. The flight generally lasts an hour, depending on Mother Nature. After landing, the ground crew will take you back to your vehicle.
It takes a high degree of skill and experience, as well as research and knowledge of current aviation weather charts and local atmospheric conditions to pilot a hot air balloon. Your Soaring Sports Providence pilot is an expert with a great deal of experience and is licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as a Commercial Hot Air Balloon Pilot. Our balloons and equipment are regularly inspected and serviced in accordance with FAA regulations and have current Airworthiness Certificates.
Safety is foremost in the minds of our pilots and our ground crew members. If your pilot thinks it is unsafe to fly due to weather conditions that day, you don’t fly. However, we will happily reschedule you for the next available flight; and that is much easier than replacing a balloon or, most importantly, the safety of its occupants.
You’ve never seen the world like this before! Contact Soaringsports.com Providence now at 401-433-7690 to book the thrill of a lifetime!
A Romantic Adventure in the Clouds!
Maybe you’re looking for something a little more intimate. Alone with that special someone, sharing your lofty perch, strengthening the bond between you as you create an unforgettable, shared memory. The absolute peace and tranquility of a Private Hot Air Balloon Ride with Soaring Sports Providence sets the perfect stage for a romantic encounter that both of you will cherish forever.
As with the first successful human-carrying flight in 1783, the most romantic hot air balloon ride took place in the skies above Paris, France. It was 1808, and two French gentlemen found themselves vying for the affections of Mademoiselle Tirevit, a beautiful and celebrated opera dancer. With each seeking her hand, and Mademoiselle Tirevit playing them off one another, their honor was at stake. Such circumstances, at the time, were often settled with a duel; but these French gentlemen, being creative individuals themselves, could not resolve their dispute with any mere duel. They each took to the skies in a hot air balloon with their Second, loaded blunderbusses and exchanged fire. At the conclusion of the first volley, one of the gentlemen (along with his Second) lay dead on a Parisian rooftop with their balloon severely damaged and deflated. The other pair landed safely. Neither man got the girl, but it’s hard to argue for a more romantic (or a less intelligent) reason for a hot air balloon ride. You won’t be doing any mid-air dueling, but you can still impress your loved one by sharing a Private Soaring Sports Providence Balloon Ride with them.
A Private Balloon Ride is similar to the Shared Ride described in that section, as far as the experience is concerned. But you don’t have to share the basket with others. It’s just you and your loved one, floating over the Rhode Island coastline. Imagine almost being close enough to pick leaves from the treetops as you slowly drift among them, or looking down at the reflection of your balloon and the glints of early morning sunlight bouncing off the deep blue waters of Narragansett Bay. Experience an unforgettable sunrise together as you watch the sun climb slowly into the sky over the vast Atlantic Ocean. Maybe this is the perfect opportunity to “pop the question”, or maybe you’ve been there and done that (or have no intention at all of doing such a thing) and just want to strengthen the bond between yourself and the one you love by experiencing the exhilaration of your aerial adventure without the distraction of a group. Either way, you’ll find a Private Balloon Ride from Soaring Sports Providence to be the perfect way to spend time together, and we will conclude your flight with a champagne toast. What better way to cap off your day with us? We promise that it will be one of the best decisions of your life.
Our Private Balloon Rides are perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, marriage proposals or other special occasions. But you really don’t need an occasion for creating a special memory with someone you love.

Bring Tethered Balloon Rides to the Party!
How do you make your party or special event epic and unforgettable? How about offering your guests a little adventure. Let Soaring Sports Providence bring the fun. We can add excitement to any large gathering: business or corporate events, family picnics or reunions, wedding receptions; wherever your large group gathers to have a good time. Whatever your event, it will be spectacular!
A Tethered Balloon Ride is one where the pilot and ground crew come to your designated location. Once there, they will inflate the balloon and tether it to the ground in accordance with FAA-approved methods and materials, allowing the flight to reach only a modest altitude—50 to 100 feet. The pilot will take groups of your guests up for a short flight lasting three to five minutes and then bring them back down, and repeat the process. Hundreds of people can easily be flown in a typical two-hour session, and anyone healthy enough to get in and out of the basket can participate. And you can be certain that your guests will talk about your party or special event for the rest of their lives.
Tethered Balloon Rides are the safest way to enjoy the thrill of effortless flight. They can also serve as a great fundraising tool if your event has charitable purpose. Raise funds by charging your guests for their rides, and they typically don’t mind when they know it’s going to a good cause. That way, you can cover the cost of having the balloon and make a little extra to support your charity.
The balloon is tethered to the ground using ropes that have a very high tensile strength and are attached to an anchor. Operation of the balloon requires a minimum of three anchors. A Tethered hot air balloon ride is still classified as a flight operation and, as such, are made in accordance with all local and FAA flight regulations.
In order to accommodate the setup and flights, your venue needs to have a clear area approximately 300 ft. by 300 ft. The area needs to be free of trees, power lines, towers, antennas or anything else that could pose a flight safety risk for your guests or for the balloon crew, or anything that could damage the balloon or equipment. As with any hot air balloon experience, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature. Tethered Balloon Rides require exceptionally nice weather to be safe. The winds must be very slow or nonexistent; even mild winds can make handling a tethered balloon nearly impossible and unsafe. It’s best to schedule your event, or at least the balloon ride portion, for early in the morning or the last few hours before dusk. The winds are calmest during those parts of the day, and increase the likelihood of a successful event. The pilot will have the final say on whether the weather conditions are suitable for safe operation; and your pilot reserves the right to cancel any flight at any time if he feels the safety of passengers or equipment are in jeopardy. Just call Soaring Sports Providence to talk about the fees and how we handle them in the event of cancellation due to weather or any other flight conditions that prevent safe operation of the balloon.
