Miami Beach Parasail is the only parasailing company on South Beach, and its parachute, 800 feet up in the air, can be seen all along the beach. The captain and his team will send you up in pairs or alone; it's $85 solo for seven to ten minutes, and $150 for a tandem ride of up to 15 minutes. From above, parasailers often see sharks patrolling the Miami coastline and manta rays gliding through the shallow water. The view is spectacular, but the journey out to sea can be a little unnerving when the parachute begins to creak in the wind. Nevertheless, this is an experience not to be missed.
