Want to fly? No, seriously. Well kind of. Impress your date with an activity that will let you soar away into the sunset.

In the sport known as “flyboarding,” you stand on top of a jetpack that is connected by a long hose to a watercraft. Water is forced under pressure to the jetpack, thrusting you into the air. Sometimes, riders are thrust as high as 15 meters! This is done so that the rider can “fly” or even complete acrobatics! Pretty exciting, right?

And the best part? According to instructors, it takes most people a maximum of approximately 10 minutes to be able to keep their balance on the jetback. And that’s it! From there, it’s all smooth sailing...I mean, flying.

Kiteboarding is an increasingly popular sport that combines aspects of other sports such as snowboarding and surfing. In it, you harness the power of the wind to propel across the water. Essentially, the wind determines whether you’re bolting across the water (total fun or yikes moment, depending on what you're into) or gliding along peacefully. So lean back and enjoy the beautiful views as you and your date kiteboard around Miami Beach.

On this nautical adventure, you’ll learn fundamental kiteboarding techniques as well as safety maneuvers that will have you and bae kiteboarding flawlessly in no time. And who cares if there are a few stumbles upon the way. Surprises on a date never hurt, right?

If you want a relaxing, Instagrammable date, then this activity is not for you. However, this is the perfect escape from the scorching Miami heat: an adventure that takes you and your date on a high-speed jet boat off of Miami’s coast!

You'll even have a skilled captain aboard, who will take you across Biscayne Bay and the Miami Seaside. Don’t get too excited at the thought of the scenic views, though. With salt water spritzing in your face, your hands holding on tightly to the boat (or your date), you’ll barely be able to keep your eyes open. With a little luck though, you might still be able to get that perfect Instagram shot.
