The Floridian sun sparkles off rolling waves, reflecting dancing patterns of light onto the white-and-red hull of Aquaworld Miami’s excursion vessel, the Caribbean Spirit . The double-masted catamaran catches the gulf’s gusty winds in its twin sails to journey to a shallow sandbar for a day of watersports, offloading jet skis, banana boats, and a parasailing-equipped speed boat into the knee-deep water. On Atlantic Ocean excursions, the 78-foot vessel parks over a shallow water shipwreck for guests equipped with snorkels to explore. The rhythmic thump of the waves combines with Calypso music that constantly drifts from the boat’s speakers, offering the only method of sonar capable of identifying an undersea dance party.

Miami Beach Water Adventures’s experienced instructors lead small groups on two-hour paddleboard escapes around islands and over reefs, exploring both the natural and manmade beauty of the city’s surroundings. First-time wave-riders receive one-on-one instruction by the beach and, like newborn giraffes, usually achieve mobility within 10 minutes. Green tour-goers stick to the bay, and more experienced paddlers take immediately to the deeper waters for an instant infusion of eyeball-delighting sights. Propelled by the rippling currents beneath them, groups set off in search of famous vistas such as Fisher Island and Key Biscayne, carefully steering with the aid of their paddle. Dolphins, manta rays, and turtles occasionally float in the wake of the board's smooth passage, and schools of colorful fish dart through the tropically touched waters underfoot like fireworks. The tour includes a board, paddle, and life vest for each visitor, leaving guests to provide only their own swimsuit and sense of balance.

Alongside a parasailing mate, soar up to 600 feet above the majestic Atlantic and experience wind-blown thrills and unmatched sight seeing. Scope the cityscape, including the Art Deco Historic District and downtown Miami, as well as nearby beaches, or admire the patch-work habitats of the ocean below. Comfortably seated in the harness, you and your tandem partner are free to kick four legs in the nautical breeze, double high-five one another, or wave four forearms emphatically as a symbol of hostility toward the second season of That's So Raven. The tandem flight lasts roughly 15 minutes, after which you return to the comforts of the boat with an adventurous sense of accomplishment and a stylish yet sensible wind-blown hairdo. For age requirements, weight restrictions, and additional information, look here.

Wading through indoor heated pools, the instructors at British Swim School teach independent swimming skills to learners aged 3 months and older, adhering to a curriculum devised by British national swimmer Rita Goldberg. The 30-minute one-on-one sessions and small-group lessons, containing six or fewer swimmers, elucidate essential techniques for water safety and the importance of speaking fluent manatee. Swimboree (ages 3 months–3 years with parents) and Young Minnows sessions (ages 1–3 years without parents) teach wee swimmers basic water-survival skills, such as the back float. Turtle One and Turtle Two classes focus on freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke maneuvers, honing more structured swimming skills in older kiddos. British Swim School's Shark courses enhance stamina and speed and teach even more demanding strokes, such as the butterfly and little-known mountain-goat flail. Certain British Swim School classes require parents to participate in the water or to supervise from the pool deck, and adults-only lessons allow grown-ups to refine their own abilities without the supervision of a toddler.
