“Fun way to see Miami and get a tour of Star Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

My husband and I were looking for something to do, but didn't want to spend all day doing one activity. I wanted to go to Star Island, but it is gated. We found Thriller while walking around in one of the shopping districts.

The music is loud (but fun) and the tour guide is very knowledgeable and shows you were all the stars live. He even walks around at the end and gets a free picture of everyone on the boat.

The captain does a good job of making sure both sides of the boat gets good views for pictures.

My husband said he wished the boat went faster, but it was still a good speed, though not to scary for kids.

Would def. recommend. We paid full price, but if you plan ahead you maybe be able to find 1/2 online discounts through Groupon type of sites.

“FUN in the sun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

This is a FAST boat and very loud music that makes it more exciting! Great views of Miami and Star island. FUN! Going into the ocean was the best part but was also the shortest part. Wish it was a longer ride!

“Superb Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Bit of fun trying to find the place, should have taken notice of the website info! However when at the Bayside harbour all is clear! Well worth the money and as long as the boat has the minimum numbers to set off. A great way to see Miami and how the other half live! If you value your hairstyle think again, you will get windswept! A must do when in Miami and great info from the guys on board plus a good laugh. DO IT!!!

“Way more fun than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

It was a bit hard to find at first, as its on a pier obsconded by a mall near the Hard Rock cafe. We went on the 6:30 tour which was perfect as the mansions were seen in daylight, but the ride back to the city was during sunset. The music was hilarious, the driving was awesome fast and furious and my fiancee and I couldn't stop smiling. Plus it took half as long as the other tours to see the same amount of stuff. The sound system was great and the tour guide was funny and had some great info.
