This tour was the highlight of our stay in Miami. I was impressed with Ashton's knowledge on the facts and history of the area. The tour was interspersed with 30+ mph sprints across the bay. Don't worry if you've never driven a boat before: Michael's instruction makes it simple even for the novice. These guys' personalities and amusing wit will... More

Seeing Miami this way was very enjoyable. Driving the small boats was easy to do and our guide was informative and fun as well. We had a minor hiccup but the guide and your operator handled this well to our satisfaction. I would recommend this tour to anyone and if we go back to Miami we would do again.

We had a wonderful 90 minute tour of the bay and surrounding islands. Our guide, Ashton, knew his stuff and made the tour very interesting. A great way hear about the history of Miami and to see where some of the celebs live. My nephew did all the driving and loved the opportunity to go "full throttle". We nearly did... More

We loved the speedboat tour! The guys are amazing, they have a vast knowledge about Miami and the islands, they give you the whole history of Miami before and during the tour! Ashton especially, since he was our tour guide, was very nice and he made those 90 minutes fun! Thanks to both guys and we hope to see you... More

This is definitely an experience of a lifetime that I would recommend to anyone looking to have an amazing day on the bay. The instructions are very simple and easy to follow for operating the boat. You and your mate will be grinning and recalling all the thrills of driving the boat as well as the historical information provided by... More

My family and I were looking for an activity that would please everyone, parents & teenagers, and we definitely found it. We all loved having a turn to drive the cute speedboats, versus being driven around, and Mike kept it really interesting. The city looked incredible from the vantage point of the water, and we got a detailed history of... More

It was an interesting and comprehensive experience. They ensure you feel comfortable and safe driving your own boat. You will get to see and hear about some sites within the bay, and you get enough time to do enjoy so very fast driving, or at lower speed if you prefer, it will be your decision. The owner, Michael, and personnel... More

I can highly recommend Speedboat Tours. It is a unique, fun and very interesting way to see the sights of Miami. The service was top notch, we felt absolutely safe and our guide did a great job. Don't waste time and money one bus tour. This is the way to see and experience Miami. Our daughter and son loved it... More

Fantastic tour around star island while captaining your very own speed boat. No experience necessary. They give you very clear and simple instructions to follow and away you go. Absolutely brilliant. And a quick note to say that the guys that run this are the best, I can't recommend this highly enough.

Lived here for a few years and this is a great way to see the celebrity homes and the bay. Ashton is by far one of the best guides this area has to offer.
