Why Rent a Jet Ski in Miami?

Jet skiing is the most popular and trending activity you will find yourself doing in Miami Beach. Your Miami experience will not be completed until you experience the unique thrill of riding on a powerful Sea-Doo Jet Ski at rushing speeds through the warm tropical water of South Florida.

How is the Jet Ski Ride?

After our team goes over all safety regulations and Jet Ski controls; our professional instructors will lead the group to a large zone where riders will be able to enjoy the freedom of riding at their desired speed and direction as long as they stay inside of the boundaries. This is way more fun than the boring old-fashioned guided tours where you are required to stay right behind each other and very limited on what you get to see during the ride. Our monitors will ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone, making your overall excursion memorable, and worth reliving.

    Getting wet is optional, however very recommended and voted the best part of the experience. You can pick whether just getting your feet wet or up to your chest!

  • What is a spectator/ observer?
    Enjoy the boat ride without actually going up in the sky. Keep in mind that if you change your mind, you may pay for the difference and still fly! Spectators are not guaranteed and only allowed if available space on the boat. Flyers will always get priority.

  • Is parasailing in Miami dangerous?
    Like all extreme sports there is a risk. All equipment is inspected daily and up to date with the newest technology. Captain/ crew are USCG approved and heavily trained for emergency scenarios. Miami Watersports has never had any severe accidents requiring medical attention since its opening in 2007. The risk is very low, you have more chances of getting knocked out by a falling coconut then going parasailing.
  • Is parasailing in Miami scary ?
    Not at all actually. Unlike that rush you get from roller coasters, parasailing gives you a smooth take-off and landing. The whole ride is very peaceful and actually smoother than on the boat!
  • Is wind/ weather a concern?
    We have a wide variety of parachute sizes to use depending on windspeed. 20mph is the max which we are allowed to fly in. It is the captain's call to decide if the weather will permit activity. Heavy rain/ thunderstorm will cause cancellation of activity.
  • Can I change my mind if I want to fly once I'm on the boat?
    Yes of course! Pay difference when you get back.
  • Do you operate in a bay or ocean?
    We parasail in the protected bay of Key Biscayne. It is much calmer then the ocean which will let you enjoy a smooth flight and be able to view all of Miami Skyline! Unlike the ocean where all you get to see is water, we will be able to view Miami Beach; South Beach; Downtown; and much more!
