The peaceful protected waters of Biscayne Bay are ideal for a number of leisure water activities. Rent a kayak and glide across the water, taking in the breathtaking Miami skyline. You may even be able to reach a few of the deserted islands inside the bay, so bring a picnic lunch.

Stand-up paddle boarding has recently gained popularity, and the best place to launch from is at The Standard Hotel & Spa - its pier is at the heart of the bay. Lesson prices vary depending on the length of the session.

For a dose of excitement, you can always get on a personal watercraft like a Waverunner or Jet Ski and fly through the water. The watercraft is easy to navigate so almost anyone can take a thrilling ride through the bay. It's a convenient way to cover a lot of territory in very little time.
