Summer in Miami is hot, hot, HOT…and we’re not just talking about the temperature. All throughout the year, Miami is the place to go for beaches and clubs; however, you can find much more to do than just that.
These are some of our favorite ways to beat the Miami heat this summer. Take advantage of the city’s perfect location along the Atlantic Ocean and cool off!
Spending time in Miami without learning to surf should be a crime! Our surfing lessons provide professional instruction and all the equipment you need to feel safe on the board and in the water. This is a great experiential gift to buy for someone who’s always wanted to try surfing, or for yourself to simply try something new. The lessons last about an hour and are beginner-friendly.
Learn to Sail
Sailing is a big part of Miami culture, so why not take a lesson to learn a bit about it yourself? We can hook you up with a three-day sailing group course that will teach you all the basics. The first two days will feature classroom instruction and on-the-water practice with certified instructors. Some of the things you’ll learn include rigging, knots, tacking, and jibing. This should prepare you to set sail on your third day. Thanks to Miami’s beautiful weather, this experience is offered year-around.
Windsurfing is one of those water sports that many beach-goers see and get intimidated by. Our windsurfing courses are perfect for beginners, and the highly-trained instructors will get you trained and confident in just two hours! Beginner lessons for all ages are taught three times per day and are offered year-around.
Miami Flyboard Experience
Another somewhat intimidating water sport that’s definitely worth a try during your time in the city is flyboard. In our Miami Flyboard Experience, you’ll get the thrill of wearing a jet pack for 30 minutes or one hour while soaring through the air above the Biscayne Bay. Lessons are offered every day and allow you to experience Miami in a really unique way.
If you’ve never gone parasailing before, just know that Miami is a great place to experience it. You’ll soar above the ocean, downtown Miami, and South Beach, reaching heights of 600 feet and getting a unique view of the surrounding landscape. Parasailing experiences run between 10 am and 6 pm every day and include a 30-45 minute boat ride to reach the launch site. You’ll have up to 10 minutes of air time for a single ride or up to 15 minutes for a tandem ride.
Open Water Scuba Diving Certification
Head just south of downtown Miami to beautiful Coral Gables to take our Open Water Scuba Diving Certification and really experience the coastal waters of south Florida. This course sets you up to make four ocean dives over half-day sessions in Key Largo, and all courses are led by PADI master diver trainers. This experience requires a full three-day or four half-day commitment; however, scheduling can be flexible and personalized. Aspiring divers will receive a PADI open water dive certification for a maximum dive depth of 60 feet.
