You'll be treated like a VIP in this small group tour. See Celebrity Homes, Star Island, Millionaire's Row, the skyline of downtown Miami and much, much more. Our tour guides are knowledgeable, very personable and entertaining!

“Thrilling and Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

I went with 2 friends and booked in advance. I received a couple of emails the day before explaining the water was too choppy to go out on the day we booked. We were quite disappointed but understood the reason for this. We rebooked for the following day with ease.

We went out with another couple, they had their own speedboat and we had ours. Ashton was our guide. He was great and helpful. It was really exciting to drive the boat ourselves, my friends didn't dare to and as there were 3 of us in the boat it was sometimes a bit scary hitting the waves at full speed.

Saw some amazing sites and had a great view of Miami from the waters. We were shown to many properties owned or previous owned by Hulk Hogan, Enrique, Stallone to name a few. Ashton had quite a bit of knowledge about the building designs too which was great.

The one thing I'm absolutely gutted with (no fault of Speedboat Tours) was that my camera memory card corrupted so lost all the photos from the tour. I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone and I would happily go again. It is great value too.

We loved your review, but were sorry to hear about your camera losing your pictures. But it does give you an excuse to come back to Miami and do a 2nd trip out with us! We'd love to take you out again in the future!

“It is a must in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

It is your first time in Miami, you will be able of having an idea of Miami. It is a lot of fun and you will understand why Miami is one of the best dream destinations for travellers. If you already know Miami you will find the celebrities houses and for sure you will see new places.
The boats are fast and safe and the explanations very interesting. If you are lucky, you will see some of the Miami fauna
Great for kids and adults

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We had a great time on this tour with Ashton as our guide. I drove the first half of the tour and then swapped so my husband could captain the last half. You do get to go pretty fast which was really fun! Up close and personal views of the Miami sky line and celebrity homes. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to have some good fun.

“Awesome way to see the sights of the rich and famous!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

What a fun time we had on our very own speed boat! Mike, our tour guide, was not only informative, but a really nice guy and very professional. If you have the need for speed and want to combine it with some spectacular Miami sights, then this is the tour for you! Thanks Mike...we are glad we found you! Your tour was the highlight of our super weekend in Miami!!!

My wife and I were recently in Miami and took a Speedboat Tour - it was GREAT!
Mike, the tour guide, was very friendly, and certainly knows his stuff. We learned a lot and had great fun, and will definitely do it again.
We thoroughly recommend it!
