If you’ve ever been to Rocky Point I’m sure you have looked up on the beach and seen one of those “things” flying around over the ocean. Well those “things” are actually called ultralights and they are a very unique and exciting way to get to see Sandy Beach and the Sea of Cortes. You get to fly around at the same height as all the resorts and admire Rocky Point’s beauty from a perspective that not many can say they have done! Ultralights started to become popular in the 1970′s and 1980′s after there was a large demand for affordable powered flight. As a result of this ultralights started to become slowly introduced to aviation. Ultralights may seem a little bit intimidating, but don’t worry you will not be driving one of these ultralights around! You will be riding with an experienced pilot who gives professional ultra light rides to tourists. There are even some pilots who give ultralight tours in Rocky Point that have over 25 years of experience, so you are definitely in good hands. Ultralight flights typically last about 8-15 minutes and can be purchased for anywhere in between $40-$50. You can purchase these flights pretty much anywhere along the beach in Rocky Point. A majority of the gentlemen who are selling rentals for jet skis and para sailing adventures also do ultralight flights. You will take off right from the beach on your ultralight flight and if you time it well enough you might be able to watch the sunset from your ultralight flight, something that not many people can say they have done. If you are an avid photographer try and bring either a Go-Pro, or a hand held camera on your ultra light flight, it’s not every day that you get to take pictures over looking all of Rocky Point.
