Bike and Kayak Tour: See Miami by land and sea with this action-packed combination that features a bike tour of Miami Beach and a kayak adventure in the waters of Biscayne Bay. This is a great way to explore Miami from two different angles as well as practising two healthy outdoor activities.
Pastel-coloured and streamlined Miami Beach seems like a dream: everything is so perfect and immaculate. The highlight is South Beach Art Deco district, where time seems to have stood still in the Thirties. There are almost 1,000 Art Deco buildings, from landmarks such as the Colony, Starlite and Breakwater hotels to little-known gems like the Cameo Theatre and Chase Federal bank. Ride along the palm-lined Meridian Avenue to South Pointe and its beautiful park, which has cycle lanes. Continue to South Beach and Lummus parks, which face the Atlantic, and flank world-famous Ocean Drive. See all the Art Deco hotels and sights such as the Versace mansion.
The Biscayne Bay kayak adventure offers as fascinating insight into one of Miami’s greatest natural wonders. Over the centuries Tequesta Indians and pirates have shared it with abundant marine life and bird species. After a short bike ride to the quiet edge of Biscayne Bay, hop into a kayak and paddle through the calm, warm, turquoise waters off Miami Beach. This tour explores the natural shorelines of the bay and its numerous islands and keys as well as affording dramatic views of the Miami skyline.
