Take to the skies for a new perspective of Miami on one of these five thrilling parasailing experiences.
Cast your gaze over the Miami shoreline and you will see plenty of activities in action, including boating, swimming, and beach volleyball. But above the horizon, there is one experience that offers the additional thrill of flight: parasailing. Conventionally holding two or three people, these colorful parasailing chutes are attached by ropes to a speedboat, which race over the water, parallel to the shoreline, offering incredible bird’s-eye views of the sprawling Miami metropolis.
Miami Parasailing Experience in Biscayne Bay
With all of its skyscrapers, Miami has quite the skyline. But from the ground, it’s not possible to appreciate the size and scale of this human construct. Strap yourself into a harness, jump into a speedboat and then let the wind pull your parasail up into the sky, above the shore and city. Gliding over Biscayne Bay on this hour-long experience, you’ll rise up to 400 feet (122m) above the water. Afterwards there’ll be chance to take a dip in the water before the ten minute ride back to shore. From $89 per person.
South Beach Parasail Flight
For an unparalleled view of Miami’s stunning Art Deco district, South Beach Parasail offer an amazing experience that sees you speed over the turquoise water, keeping in line with the beach-fringed shore, before taking to the air. And it’s not just about the parasailing experience here. Although that will no doubt be the most memorable part of this tour, there will also be chance to spot Miami’s native marine life, such as dolphins and turtles, from the boat, as well as from the air. From $100 per person.
Parasail Flight at the Marina
FlySoBe offer one of the best value experiences for parasailing in Miami. The 90-minute slots depart from Miami Beach Marina and guarantee at least eight-ten minutes of time in the air, beneath your colorful parasail, taking in the majestic sweep of Miami’s coastline. Double and triple flights (two or three people harnessed into one parachute) are available, but single-person flights are generally not. This tour offers decent discounts for those who book five days or more in advance. From $120 per person.
Parasailing in Miami
Contrary to popular opinion among those not initiated in the ways of parasailing, this experience is less about adrenaline an more about gently floating above Miami Beach, appreciating the stunning views. This parasailing experience will allow for a roughly ten-minute experience in the sky, with plenty more time to enjoy being out on the water in the boat. As with all tours on this list, all gear is provided and routinely inspected to ensure high safety standards are met. From $129 per person.
Miami: Parasail + Jet Ski combo
If you want to combine two exhilarating water sports activities into one tour, this is a great value way to experience both jet ski rental and parasailing in Miami. Clamber aboard a jet ski and follow an instructor to a special zone where you can zoom around with no speed restrictions. You’ll also get the chance to go parasailing over Miami’s shoreline for 6-10 minutes. This latter experience includes a boat ride. Please note that the price listed here includes a $50 fuel and servicing fee. From $219 per person.
