9. Go parasailing and enjoy bird's-eye view of Miami (from USD 85.0)

In Florida, you won’t be allowed to fly from a boat (that’s what parasailing is), if there’s a coming storm or prevailing high winds. If the coast is clear, you can head to the meeting place and start an enjoyable hour with Dylan and Kyle, your Airbnb hosts. Parasailing in perfect weather is a glorious way to see Miami Beach. The boat ride out to Key Biscayne takes about 5-10 minutes. The safety instructions may take longer but you have to pay attention. Parasailing is considered high risk but you can fly from a boat with assurance if you are using well maintained equipment and are in the hands of professional operators. Hanging from a parachute high above the water surface can be so much fun.

10. Ride the Flyboard and soar high above the water (from USD 99.0)

A flyboard utilizes a hydroflighting device to produce propulsion for hydroflying. The Flyboard was invented by Franky Zapata (France) in 2012. Now, it’s a water sport anyone old enough can try. The physics is pretty simple, and they say there’s not much technique involved. In Miami, you still need to undergo a briefing whether it’s your first time to go flyboarding or not. Your hosts (Dylan, Eddy, and Jensen) could teach you how to flyboard in a longer session if you feel you need more time to prepare. But, if you’re good to go, show up in a swimsuit and attend to the safety instructions. This Airbnb experience lets you glide like a pro on jets of water for 20 minutes.
