Highlights
Miami sightseeing cruise is a fun alternative to a city tour
See the Miami Skyline district, Miami Beach, Port of Miami, and more
Opportunities to see wildlife in its natural habitat
Live commentary entertains and informs during your cruise
What to expect
Make your way to the easy-to-find Bayside Marketplace in Miami to begin your tour. Board a double-decker boat and get cozy in an indoor viewing area or open-air deck—both have great views. Once you set sail, crew members tell you about top Miami sights as you pass them, including standout picks from the Miami Skyline neighborhood, a number of nearby islands, and celebrity homes. This is a great way to get a sense of Miami history and culture from the waters that make it famous. Also, keep a lookout for wildlife, such as dolphins and manatees. If you want, you can purchase soft drinks, beer, or cocktails on board. Your cruise ends at the original starting point.

Terrible, unresponsive staff
Jun 2021 • Couples
I booked this online. Three hours before our scheduled cruise they cancelled due to “technical difficulties”. They rescheduled us without consulting us first on a cruise we could not attend. I called both numbers no response and emailed immediately. No response. The next day once back home they said we have a year to use this. We live in Boston. I will never use this. They stole our money. They purposely ignored all day of communication. No one was working their booth either as we checked there as well. Avoid this company unless you like losing money.

Oct 2020 • Friends
My friends and I paid for the Biscayne Bay Tour Oct 23, 2020. We asked specific questions about the capacity and social distancing because we are extremely COVID-19 conscience. We were told that they only sell 50 tickets ( which is half capacity and those would be spaced socially.) When we arrived to board and saw the boat we knew this was an impossibility. We spoke with the attendant, again asking about social distancing, capacity and masking regions enforcement aboard. We were them told they could legally sale 67 seats and they recommend that masks are worn. We were also told that no attendant told us they would sell 50 tickets. We returned to the ticket salesman who then amended his original statement about capacity and WOULD NOT ADDRESS the social distancing statement. We asked if a refund was an option......it wasn’t. We wished him well.
I hope the money that Miami Aqua Tours dishonestly got from us benefits him....however you reap what you sow.

A hokey, commercialized tour.
Feb 2020
Surely there are better tours than this one. The tour was advertised for 11:30 but they said to arrive 15 minutes early, which we did. As we boarded the boat they handed everyone a pen and form to fill put to win a cruise. We declined. Next, they wanted pictures of every guest as they boarded and were quite insistent that we do it even tho we declined. We won. (They tried to sell the photographs back to each guest for $15 a pop at the end of the cruise.). The employees were dressed in pirate costumes and there was a plastic pirate skeleton prominently displayed. The narration was in english and Spanish but the host did not speak very clearly. The other annoyance was the loud dance music playing when he wasn't talking. We were on the boat for 25 minutes before we left at 11:55. We were encouraged a few times to down to the bar to get a drink during the tour. Bottled water was $3.
