“AWESOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

My husband and I went on this tour - it was AWESOME!! The drivers really make it fun. You get up close to the homes at Star Island and when they get out on the open water near South Beach - it was a blast. You will not find a better tour and the cost is VERY reasonable. We have done other tours in the Miami area and even in Cancun, Mexico - I couldn't believe the cost was so little. I would recommend this to anyone. I would suggest booking this online - you actually save $3 per ticket and to book as early as you can. The tours fill up fast.

“every thing was fast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

the tour will really thrill you and its a real speed boat but for me and what i advise is to take the trip that contains a swim in the fligler island or a less speedy and noisy boat.

“Fastboat Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is practically a must do tourist thing to do. This tour gives you a great tour of Star Island, Millionaires Row, South Beach, etc. Once, you get out on the open water they let it rip at high speed (nothing like it). The tour leaves often (every 90 mins) and makes it easy to catch or work into your schedule if your doing other things at Bayside market place. While waiting for the tour I had banana/strawberry fruit smoothie, perfect for a hot summer day.
I would recommend this tour just for the great views of the Miami skyline. A little pricey but, on par for these kind of tours.

“A different spin on the tour of star's homes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I've done several Biscayne Bay boat tours and this was by far the funnest and most unique. The places the tour takes you are the same as all the others but the experience is much funner as the boat goes very fast and you get splached with water. At one point when the boat is going fast, one of the drivers gets up and goes around to take pictures with your camara. This gets you the best souvenir of the trip. Before the trip they have you pose in front of the boat and get your pictures while your hair is still in place and you are dry but with the action shots you capture the exhiliration...wet clothes, messed up hair and everything.
We got a pretty good deal with a groupon and there are lots of sales on various travel sites for this attraction. I would definately try to get a discount of some sort to avoid the more expensive $35 price.

“Overall a good experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Book the tickets online to save $3 per person . The boat ride is for 45 min . This is not as fun and exciting as the beast ride I had done in new york . The speed boat is fast but not as fast as my past other speed boat experiences .
