Hyundai Air & Sea Show

Hyundai Air & Sea Show

Lummus Park

May 27 - 28, 2023

General Admission starting at $45; Concert-only $30; free to view from outside ticketed areas

The skies over South Beach will once again roar with the thunder of America’s military might, as the Hyundai Air & Sea Show takes over Miami Beach on Memorial Day Weekend. F16s, B52s and a dozen other jets will fly over the beach May 27 and 28, accompanied by parachute teams, special ops demonstrations, and Jet Skis and Cigarette boats speeding over the water. The festival is a tribute to those who gave their lives in defense of our country and offers an impressive display of aeronautical innovation for the whole family.

Read on for everything you need to know about the 2023 Hyundai Air & Sea Show.

Sea Show Events

Both mornings begin on the water, where a team of offshore Cigarette powerboats announce the opening of the day’s activities. Once they’ve sufficiently sped across the Atlantic Ocean, a talented team of fly boarders and Jet Skiers takes over, showcasing tricks and flips against the backdrop of turquoise waters. Guests will also see a “Thundercat” boat exhibition, where the high-speed catamarans demonstrate feats of velocity and precision.

Air Show Events

The most recognizable part of the air portion of the show is the fly-bys from military aircraft. The excitement starts when the aerial parade tears over the Miami Beach shore with F-16 Fighting Falcons, F-18 Rhinos, F-35 Lightning IIs and a bevy of other warbirds. Attendees will also be treated to team demonstrations from the U.S. Army’s Black Daggers and Golden Knights, as well as parachute demos from the British Red Devils and U.S. Navy Leapfrogs. Highly skilled soldiers will drop out of the sky in perfect formation and land right on the sand in a special Landing Zone inside the viewing area. Special ops forces will be on display too, conducting combat search-and-rescue demonstrations and other maneuvers.

Music Explosion

2023 Hyundai Air and Sea Show music lineup to be announced.

Motocross, Marksmanship & More

Beyond the speeding boats and roaring jets, there will also be a Display Village set up in front of the dunes in Lummus Park. There, you’ll find live Motocross demos from the Monster Energy Freestyle team, as well as Air Force flight simulators and military equipment showcases. You’ll also have the chance to try your marksmanship at a Marine Corps rifle range simulator and visit with active members of the armed forces.

Where to Watch the Hyundai Air & Sea Show

The show flies over most of Miami Beach, but the main viewing areas will be in Lummus Park between 11th and 14th streets on Ocean Drive. You can watch for free from almost anywhere along Miami Beach, but you will need General Admission tickets to enter the Liquor Split Beach Club and Umbrella Club, on the sand between 11th and 14th streets.

General Admission ticket prices to be announced. Guests can also post up in a private cabana and catch the action. Sky suites are also available for those looking for the ultimate sky-high luxury.

How to Get to the Hyundai Air & Sea Show

If you’re planning to drive to the Hyundai Air & Sea Show, you’ll find City of Miami Beach parking garages at 13th Street and Collins Avenue, and a few blocks from the park at 12th Street and Drexel Avenue.

If you’d prefer to avoid traffic, you can take the Poseidon Ferry to Miami Beach. It leaves from the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Miami and drops passengers at the Bentley Bay Marina at 5th Street and Alton Road, about a mile from the festival. Tickets are $13 each way/$7 for Florida residents.

Tips for Attending the Hyundai Air & Sea Show

As the largest display of fighter jets and fast boats in Greater Miami & Miami Beach, the Hyundai Air & Sea Show draws a sizable crowd. If you can, arrive as early as possible to secure a good spot on the sand. This also helps you avoid traffic and improves your chances of parking close by. Remember to drink more water than you think you need, and spread on plenty of sunscreen.

Also, the jets and boats can be loud. If you have sensitive hearing, consider wearing ear protection, and if you use a hearing aid turn it down. But above all else, come expecting an exciting day of displays and remember the real reason for the festival – honoring the people who’ve served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice.
