Michael rocks, very patient as we ran 30 minutes late (cab drivers fault) Took time to tell us about the history and also kept kids more than intersted in the cool sites and also gassed the boat for them more than enough! Dropped us at the standard hotel a couple hours later. Will have great memories of a perfect day... More

You are very welcome! It always helps when our other guests don't mind waiting for everyone to arrive. We are now recommending that our guests use UBER instead of local taxis.....it tends to work much better. And we love the title of your review....."HIGHLIGHT OF OUR VACATION"! We take that as the ultimate compliment!! More

Wanted to get on the water without the expense and responsibility of renting a boat.capt mike was very accommodating with his small jet boat that comfortably could hold more folks than he booked. We were five guests but he will book six. Clear knowledge of the region and how it relates to the current vibe of miami. A drive by... More

Thank you for the great review! The address is not listed because our tours are based on reservation only. We don't want people getting just showing up to our meeting location expecting to find a boat waiting and then getting upset when they realize nobody is there. It's an issue that we are working on, and we appreciate your input!... More

Really enjoyed the tour by speed boat felt bad for the other large tours we passed. Got a little of everything history, cultural center, celebrity houses, and tips while in town. Overall he went out of our way to accommodate us and even dropped us off in a closer location to our hotel.

Cruising around Miami and learning about all the islands that were created and spending time with Magic Mike was great. He himself has a great character and tries to make us feel comfortable and have a great time. The tour itself was awesome and you just gotta do it. View Miami like never before.

Very nice to have a view to Miami from a different angle. Maybe a bit too much about different star houses and not enough history etc but definitely a "must do" thing in Miami.

We always try to give a solid amount of the history of Miami and Miami Beach because it definitely has an interesting history. Over the years there have been many ups and downs for south Florida. We appreciate the five star review!! More
