“Bay Tour on Fast Forward!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I was travelling with a group of friends and were looking for something a bit different to do for half day in Miami. We all loved this trip it was lots of fun and boy did the speed boat move. They take you out into the ocean off South Beach which was a good photo opportunity. You also visited some Famous People homes unfortunately we were sitting in the back of the boat and could hardly hear what the tour guide was saying. They need to improve the speakers or turn off the boat while she is talking otherwise a fanastic trip.

“Totally Thrilled on Thriller!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Looked on Tripadvisor for something different to do whilst on a day trip to Miami, so pleased I found this!!
We booked the evening before for the 3.30 ride and there were several spaces available on each time slot, we even thought about booking the ride on the day, so pleased we did'nt as the trips were booked solid by the time we arrived. They were so busy they put on extra trips and were we're actually put on the 4pm ride instead. This was'nt a problem as there is a lovely Italian ice cream parlour very close by!
Before getting on the boat you get your photo taken which is ready for when you get back and can be purchased for ten dollars, unfortunately the printer was broken so we did'nt get the chance which was a shame as we would have loved to get the momento of our trip especially before we got wet and our hair messed up!
Safety is of the utmost importance and were we're informed of where life jackets were should we need them before even leaving the harbour. Once out of the harbour the boat got quite fast before dropping by star island where the tour guide pointed out houses of interest and there were quite a few! Then we headed out to sea for a thrilling ride with doughnut turns and riding the waves, prepared to get wet if you sit on the sides or even wetter at the back! During the ride back into harbour the tour guide even goes around to take photos with your own camera. Just as we're were headed to the dock we even had the added thrill of seeing two dolphins swimming around, perfect!
Don't forget to tip these hard working fun tour guides.......

“Great trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

I really enjoyed the trip - prepare to get wet and sit on the outer edges of the boat if you want to get soaked.

The staff was great and the trip was fun. My only minor complaint is that we booked on line for 12:30 but the tour was actually scheduled for 1245...

“The best boat tour in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Great trip to enjoy after some cocktails around Bayside Mall! It goes really fast and furious and it is the only boat to give you a full view of SoBe. I would do it again and again and again.

“AW$OME!! Recommend it to everyone!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012 via mobile

Once me and my wife got to the location, they had a great view. We had to wait because they needed 10 people to ride in total and we got there early but it was totally worth the wait!! Finally it started and the ocean and breeze was Nice! The captain and tour guide was great! Once half way the ride the captain speeded up to 40mph+ , it was totally AW$OME! I recommend this ride to everybody for any occasion! Bday,date etc. Wooooooooooo!!!!
