Adventures Designed to Thrill

Wave-riding, hair-raising and free-falling feats for the whole family.

Hang Gliding: You don’t need mountains to go tandem hang gliding! You and your instructor will tow up to altitude behind a Light Sport Aircraft, and then soar down while enjoying spectacular views. Click here to see hang gliding in action!

Kiteboarding: Combine paragliding with wakeboarding and you wind up with this wild, windy adventure. The Florida Keys boast a boatload of shallow, glassy water and smooth breezes, making them an ideal location to learn this sport.

Skydiving: Florida, with its abundance of flat fields and balmy winters, is made for plummeting from the sky. Try Skydive City in Zephyrhills.

Surfing: You can have a swell time making waves! If you’re just learning, splash over to Cocoa Beach to enjoy gentle, consistent conditions. Hot shots should head to New Smyrna Beach or Sebastian Inlet.

Zip Lining: Glide over the forests and swamps in this fun-for-the-whole-family adventure with Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida in St. Cloud.
