Such a perfect place for a wonderful afternoon! Whether you like action or relaxation (Or both matter of fact!) Virginia Key Outdoor center is the perfect place to go. My older son and I are more into paddling while my younger one and my husband love the mountain biking. either way, there always something fun to see such as sharks, manatees, cool birds and more This place is our ultimate Miami fun.

12 of us did the sunset kayak on a Saturday night. After some briefing, spraying down for bugs, life jackets on etc we headed to the water. By then the moon was out so we didn't get to capture a sunset. Nevertheless the whole experience was awesome. The guides were very keen on safety and expertly guided us into the bay to see the Miami Skyline. We spent quite sometime just zenning. This was the highlight of the evening and bonus we got to see some bioluminescence...little lit creatures in the water.

A group of friends and I rented 4 single kayaks for 1 hour. The operator was kind enough to let us have double kayaks instead because we were inexperienced. Besides, the rainy weather, my friends and I enjoyed ourselves. Will definitely be doing this activity again if I come back to Miami.

My friends and I had a wonderful time paddling out to see the Miami Skyline at Sunset. It was a beautiful night. We brought drinks and snacks and hung out on the water talking and admiring the amazing view and tranquility. I definitely will do this again.
