“Big Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Great 45 minute speedboat ride around Miami including views of South Beach, Star and Fisher Island. Tour guide was funny and entertaining. Trip also hit going into Atlantic Ocean and great music/sound system made it well worth $35 fee.

“FanFreakingTastic!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

OMG!!!!! The Boat Ride of the Century.... Awesome I tell you! I couldn't even catch my breathe. We had soooooooooooooo much fun on this boat ride, you will be left on a continuous adrenaline HIGH. Going about 55-60 miles an hour for about a good solid 45 minutes was just a way to top the afternoon. The sky was clear, the weather was warm, the boat was full of people excited from head to toe. Highly suggest this as apart of your excursion if you are in the Miami area.. Thumbs Up!!!!!!!

“Customer service is not the best”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

I came up to the counter to buy 3 tickets for the ride that was leaving in hour and a half. Asked attendant a question and at this point 6 young people came up to the counter right next to me and said that they needed 6 tickets. And without thinking twice attendant issued them 6 tickets. And then turned to me and said that that bouat is sold out and next one will be in 3 hours. Really???? What about first come first served? It was very disapointing....

“Thriller- Lots of Fun if the Ocean is Choppy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Honestly, this is really a 5-star review but on our visit the ocean was FLAT. This is not the fault of the company. The boat is fast, yes, but it's much more thrilling when there are waves to skip.

We've been on the Thriller Boat in Charleston, and the ocean was very choppy, we had a lot of fun jumping the waves. The sea in Miami was like glass, very smooth. But the upside: Our captain took our pics sitting in the driver's seat (I expected an upcharge here), but no, he offered it to everyone with their own camera. We also got really close up to Star Island to see some famous mansions.

We did this with our teens, they loved it. A great alternative to slow boat tours.

“A ride on Thiller is as entertaining as it is thrilling.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

The wind blowing in your face. The music blaring. A ride on Thiller is as entertaining as it is thrilling.

The Thriller Miami Speedboat Tour is a 45 minute mashup of the typical sightseeing tour combined with adventure. On the tour, you will see a few of Miami's coastal sites including the downtown Miami skyline, the Port of Miami, Fisher Island, Miami Beach and a few homes of the rich and famous. Now, if you are looking for an informative tour or something a little more relaxed, try one of the many other tours that departs from Bayside, but if you are looking for a fun filled high-speed ride, look no further.
