So, there’s this thing they call “traveler’s mind.” Essentially, it’s when you’re open to stuff you either wouldn’t, or couldn’t get the chance to do at home. You’re adventurous. Curious. And… swept off your feet.

What, specifically are we talking about today? And, what does it have to do with all the awesome things to do on Miami Beach? We’re talking about parasailing, of course!

Parasailing Miami Beach isn’t like anywhere else. The mechanics of the sport may be the same, a speedboat whisking you high into the air with a parachute billowing open behind, but the view… oh, my. That’s pure Miami glamor. If the wind weren’t rushing in your ears and you weren’t squealing in glee, you’d probably hear the Miami Vice theme song playing in the background as you speed past all the art deco high rises of the iconic South Beach skyline. Whether in tandem with a friend or two, or all by yourself, a parasailing experience is one you’ll want to give a go. So, here are some companies to help you get up, up, and away!

South Beach Parasail

One of the most experienced parasail companies in the business, South Beach parasail takes pride in giving you a safe yet exhilarating experience. They let out 800ft of towline, which lets you reach a height of 350-400ft! Plus, you can choose to be dipped or stay dry. Two or even three passengers can sail together at once, which makes for a bonding experience. Prices start at $85/person ($70 for the early bird runs, first thing in the morning). Reach them at for hours of operation and to book your tour adventure. Or call (305) 266-4144. Rides take off from the beach by the Loews Hotel South Beach. Look for the red umbrellas.

Miami Beach Ocean Water Sports

Another great option with tons of adventures to choose from is Miami Beach Ocean Water Sports. Not only can you parasail, they also offer yacht cruises, sunset sails, snorkeling, jet ski rental, or even packages featuring two of the above together. These folks aren’t fooling around. Not only can you get a jet ski tour, but you can even practice for your jet ski certification if that’s your thing. But when it comes to parasailing, Miami Beach Ocean Water Sports may offer more options than any other tour company. To book, visit or call (877) 700-6166. Prices start at $79 per person, and there’s even a $15 discount for early bird customers.

Parasail World offers rides starting at $85, and, as you whiz past the tall art deco hotel facades of the Miami skyline and all the beautiful people baking on the beach, you’ll find your adventure worth every penny. One of their selling points is they’ll take professional video of your flight as well, so you can share splashy family memories with the jealous folks back home. As many as three people can ride together. To book, call (305) 600-1111 or go to
