Falconry Experiences in La Jolla

All our Falconry Experiences are interactive. They can be booked as part of a group, with a maximum of 12 participants, or privately. Experiences will last between 1.5 and 2 hours and the program is mostly decided by our birds, who have minds of their own. Falconry Experiences are held at the historical Torrey Pines Gliderport on the cliffs of La Jolla.

Please read our description, as well as our booking and refund policy before choosing your Experience. For larger groups, contact us to customize your event.  We require that children 12 and younger sign up with one adult. 

How to book: choose your experience, select " book now" and scroll the calendar to select the day/time that works for you. Click 'next' and enter your information. Use the scroll down menu to choose the number of tickets. If you are booking a Private Experience, use the scroll-down menu next to the calendar to customize the size of your private group.

After booking: you will receive a confirmation email containing details of your booking and a link to our online waiver. Please read it and sign the waiver well before arriving on location. A similar reminder email will also be sent 24h before your class. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact us.

Covid19: We'll follow social distancing rules for outdoors activities and sanitation protocols as mandated by Cal/OSHA.
