“Tourist Trap but Fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Overpriced but a fun experience. The information about who lives in what house I couldn't have cared less about, but the ride was fun. I probably wouldn't pay that much money for such a short thrill ride though in the future. If they took out the tour and just gave us a 45 minute speed boat ride, I think that would be more worthwhile.

“Fast & Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Worth the $36 adult, $23 child admission. The view of downtown Miami by boat is unforgettable. The ride lasts about 45 minutes, with music that gets you in the free spirit mood. You venture out of the bay into the ocean at a fast speed, slowing down by Star Island, and other famous islands where you view Multi Million dollar homes of the Stars. You will probably get splashed when the boat turns. This is a fun and memorable attraction to do if you are in Bayside. (The captain will expect a tip, which I think is inappropriate and should not be allowed, but who am I to say.)

“Decent but little expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Started off from Bayside market, accelerated till celebrity island, did a short tour around some of the mansions in celebrity island, continued to South Beach, and back to bay. Top speed upto 45mph, very smooth ride which was a turn off, no bumpy thrill ride, could be because of calm waters. Good loud music. One may want to add this to their optional list of things to do in Miami. Bit expensive for the kind of ride it provides. Duration 45 minutes.

“Fantastic way to see Miami with a small amount of people.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We were pushed for time as only in Miami for 2 days, this tour suited my family of 4 perfectly. Duration is approx 45 mins but enough time to see all the sights especially Star Island. Its a fun tour with loud music. Our guide Tad was great, had us dancing in our seats as well as giving us lots of information. Fast was good as it was hot so cooled us own with a little added spray too. I would definitely do this tour again.
