Sail with Ballooning Snohomish aboard a colorful, nine-story balloon as gentle breezes carry you over the spectacular Snohomish valley, sweeping just over tree tops, floating above a river or lake, or rising high above the earth for a picturesque view of the northwest mountains and waterways. Relax with panoramic views of the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges including Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier, the Seattle and Everett skylines, Puget Sound, and the beautiful farmlands of our valley.

We have flown balloons all over the world! We enjoy Snohomish the most
Company Owner and Chief Pilot "Captain Bob" has logged over 12, 000 hours piloting Hot Air Balloon worldwide. On his first flight in 1981 he knew his life had changed. Ballooning has been his full time career since 1987. Flying summers in Snohomish since 1998, Captain Bob enjoys flying Snohomish best of all. The northwest is a beautiful place and seeing it from above everything, aboard a hot air balloon is an experience like no other. Floating just above the river and the trees to high enough to see Seattle and Vancouver creates a very memorable balloon ride moment.
Ballooning attracts and holds your attention. You might be a little nervous at first but you will quickly settle to a very comfortable environment. Share you experience with a close friend or as many who will join you. The memories are unforgetable.
Is ballooning safe? It's been said that hot air ballooning is safer than driving a car or flying in an airplane. However, as with any outdoor adventure, a certain element of risk is involved.
