Had the extreme pleasure in participating on a Captain Sharkie vessel last week. A bus on land and a "boat" on water. It was the funniest most enjoyable trip we ever had. I even won a little bath duck. Our tour leader (and for the life of me I can't remember his name) but he had a pair of very... More

I loved learning about the history of Miami on this Duck Tour. So interesting! I thought the tour experience could've been a little less cheesy, but I guess it keeps you a little more engaged as a listener. A little less corny jokes would've been nice though. All in all, I would recommend this trip to people visiting South Beach,... More

I spoke with a gentleman by the name of Peter in regards to a festival we where having at the Ishiguro Japanese garden called the Bodhi Fest. Being a non profit it has been difficult to have assistance from any tours to make mention of our festival and Intentions. He was so supportive of our cause and told us not... More

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide guy really puts a lot into it. He did a great job. My favorite part is when they go into the water. It is a lot of fun to ride in a duck around the great city of Miami. This is not the priority, but I wouldn't mind doing it again in a... More

A group of us (7 adults and 2 children) went on the South Beach Duck Tour last week. It was an interesting 45 minutes. The best part of the tour was the water portion which goes around the bay. The tour leader was very animated and LOUD (we sat in the front seats), so if you don't want a headache,... More

It may be due to the limited amount of things to see with an amphibious vehicle, but this tour did not meet expectations. The local traffic in the area really limits the amount of area that can be covered and the water part of the tour is mostly in open water with reference to celebrity homes in the distance. Staff...

Bart, is a extremely rude tour guide. Who was rude to my group before we got on the bus. He was easily distracted and thrown off script. The tour was dry and boring.

I went on this tour when I was in Miami for spring break. It was a lot of fun... Hour and a half tour. It goes both on land and in the water. They play music and give you a lot of great information about south beach. Our tour guide Maite (I may have spelled that wrong) was so much... More

Being a person who doesn't go on many tours, I was sceptical about the Duck Tour of South Beach. I have to say from the moment we picked up our tickets to the end of the tour all the employees were very nice. Our tour guide Bartt was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable about the history of miami but most... More
