“Exciting Speedboat Ride With A Little Tour Thrown In”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

We had a wonderful time on this tour. It's a great way to see Miami from the water while enjoying some thrilling speed. If you go in expecting a hugely informative tour, you may be disappointed but it's great for a quick look at houses and the area while enjoying a fun ride. There is also some great restaurants and shopping adjacent to where you get on the boat.

“Great ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

I bought a Living Social coupon for $22/pp. It was well worth it. The staff is very nice and friendly. The tour itself was very fun and informative.

“Must do in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Forget those boring cruises a Baysife in Miami...you will only fall asleep! Thriller Ride is the real deal! You see all the mansions and sights but also go out on the ocean for a thrill ride of your life! Had such a blast!!! The crew was excellent and fun too!

“The Adrenaline Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

Miami – Thriller: My husband likes to go fast on the water – jet skis, ocean catamarans – more adrenaline than tour. In choosing Thriller speed boat tour, we got both! Reservations are available online or at the ticket booth in Bayside. Discounts are often offered for online booking.

On the plus side, the boat is sleek and fast. The ride is remarkably smooth but the speed, the wakes of other boats and venturing out into actual OCEAN waters offers an adventure ride unlike any other!

There is some “tour”, a few homes of the rich and famous – cruise ships – impressive skylines views of Miami and a distant look at famous South Beach but this this is as much about the “Miami Vice” style ride as it is the “tour”. The crew is laid back and great about taking photos using your camera including one that lets you sit in the co-pilot seat!

The only negative, the sound system. It was great when playing music but was temperamental when it came to the narrative. The crew did their best and it was fine but certainly made the Carrie B.’s sound system seem even more stellar.

Final word: We did the sunset tour and it was amazing – definitely a high point to end our trip to South Florida. Put this on your “must see” when in Miami!

Both Carrie B. and Thriller offer the cruise ship style boarding photo with no obligation to buy. Each tour website offers suggestions for parking but you may need to factor in the cost of parking as well as the time it takes to find a spot then walk to the boarding area. Lastly a sunset tour is beautiful but by the time you get back to the dock the sun will have set so a light jacket or sweater is a good idea.
