Hang Glide Miami's USHPA-certified hang-gliding instructors and seasoned boat crew help novice gliders take to the skies over Biscayne Bay. Boats tow gliders and their instructors out above the glassy waters of the bay, and once they've reached the correct altitude, pilots un-tether themselves from the line and freely glide for several thousand feet before landing in the water. Safely strapped to their veteran instructor, clients take in breathtaking views of marine life and the Miami skyline, and experience the exhilarating feeling of soaring through the clouds, just like their winged ancestors.

[[m:####Miami Water Life Tours
Across Miami's coastline, the setting sun casts a warm glow that reflects off skyscrapers and twinkles atop the ocean's waters. Miami Waterlife Tours' fleet of watercraft explores this fusion of urban and natural landscapes. Jet skis, paddleboards, and kayaks float on self-guided rentals and tours that pass into view of celebrity properties and their CGI homes. At nearby sandbars, IKO-certified instructors lead kiteboarding lessons while parasails soar into the sky.
Bringing luxury to the water, Miami Water Life Tours also charters boats. Its vessels range from a 25-foot Bayliner to a 94-foot Ferretti motor yacht complete with private chef and dolphin interpreter.:m]]
Speeding across the crystal-clear waters just off the beach, Hollywood Parasail's captains tug parasailers of all ages behind their powerboats, hoisting them up into the air. Flights take off from the parasailing boat deck, and no experience or special equipment is necessary to ascend up over the water and cruise for approximately 10-12 minutes as confused birds look on.
After logging more than 1,000 hours of flying time, organizing six competitions, and gaining 34 years of experience, Scot Trueblood can safely be dubbed a hang-gliding devotee. His passion for flight is only matched by his enthusiasm to share the sky with others. That’s why he founded Paradise Hang Gliding Inc., which allows Scot to take novices for atmospheric tandem rides over the stunning waters of Florida Bay and the Straits of Florida.
As students soak up views of blue waters spread out beneath them, Scot teaches them the important aspects of operating a hang glider. He generally starts beginners off on the Wills Wing Condor 330, a glider with a lightweight frame and large wingspan. These attributes allow it to take off while moving at extremely slow speeds, ensuring a comfortable ride for hesitant newcomers or cowardly penguins.
