Parasailing in Miami Beach is one of the most exciting and thrilling ways to experience it, and one of the most fun water sports of all. From high up on the Parasail (up to 1000 feet!), you can see the best and most unforgettable views of South Beach, the city of Miami, and the Biscayne Bay! Parasailing is one of the best activities to do on a sunny day at the beach. Cool off with the wind and sea breeze while experiencing great views on the ride of your life. Here is a list of things you can see from a Parasail tour on Miami Beach. You can enjoy these views from your parachute alone or with a friend!
1) Marine Life

A parasail tour over 700 feet above the ocean is a sure way to experience the rich marine life of Miami Beach and the Biscayne Bay. Choose to stay dry, or take a dip in the water on this parasailing adventure. Parasailing, you’ll surely see tons of beautiful marine life, as well as the sand bars and sparkling blue waters where they live.
