Flyboards, Jetpacks, and Other Adrenaline-Inducing Water Activities in Miami

Miami Beach is full of excitement and an epicenter for aquatic activities. With warm weather and beautiful beaches, it’s no wonder this vacation spot has built such a strong watersports presence. A trip to Miami means you have a long menu of escapades to choose from. We’ve rounded up our favorites below to help you navigate the marine scene.

Flyboard

When jetpacking was introduced to the world, there was a flurry of excitement and even a viral video or two of people soaring above the sea. Well, flyboarding is jetpacking 2.0. While jetpacking uses jetpacks strapped to your back to launch you into the sky, flyboarding uses jetpacks attached to your feet. While that may seem intimidating, by taking a quick orientation with a company like Miami Watersports, you’ll be ready to fly in no time.

Hobie Cat

Get the thrill of sailing without the difficulty of a sailboat on a four-passenger hobie cat. Biscayne Bay is ideal for hobie cats, as the shallow sandbars protect it from the rough open sea. Hobie cats are easy to sail and can speed across the water, making it a fun time for beginners. Also, you’ll be so low to the water that you’ll have up close views of all the sea creatures below the surface, like dolphins and colorful fish!

Sea Rocket

Some of the best sightseeing in Miami happens by sea. On the sea rocket catamaran, you’ll get to soak in the Miami skyline, cruise past impressive multi-million dollar mansions, and discover the history behind Miami’s most unique landmarks. Currently, there are 35-minute tours available and are perfect for large groups.

Cardozo South Beach

After a day under the sun, head back to Cardozo South Beach, where you’ll feel the pulse of classic Miami in a sophisticated luxury atmosphere crafted by Gloria and Emilio Estefan. The hotel offers chic deluxe and ocean-view suites located a stone’s way from the sand and some of the best nightlife and restaurants in Miami.
