We booked our family for the "Pirate Ship Tour" of the bay. I guess we should have done some more research because we assumed that a giant Pirate ship would be more about kids then adults. It was basically a "star houses of Miami" boat tour that issued out paper pirate hats for the kids upon embarking onto the ship.... More

The boat trip is good if you want to see some fancy homes and it was fun how they introduced each house with clues about the person and sometimes with a song. If you go make sure to have a good view of the right hand side of the boat as the houses were always on this side. The downsides... More

This was the 2nd stop in a three part tour - the first part of our tour was for the sight-seeing bus. This part was supposed to be for the Biscayne Bay boat tour. Unfortunately we dropped/misplaced our boat ticket and the email booking confirmation or Apple Wallet Passbook was not sufficient for the Tour company to allow us to... More

The boat is very old. They are constantly trying to get money out of you from the initial "security" photo to, the onboard bar to the tips. The commentary was good however. When asked about the length of the tour, they were not interested and suddenly started speaking in broken English. I would not recommend

Even as a local its fun to try something new. I booked a tour at the Bayside Market place. While the Pirate Ship seemed to be a fun idea for someone with kids, I decided to go with the more normal tour. It was a perfect day for a ride out on Biscayne Bay. The tour guide has great personality... More

We booked Pirate ship tour online through Miami Aqua Tours website and after that called them to confirm the booking. When we reached (almost one hour before the tour) there with 2 kids, they told tickets sold out and we can go in the next slot available. We were visiting Miami with some plans and this made everything messed up... More

This is for you if... You like broken seats, 50% Spanish commentary, and non stop reminders about tipping. You are forced to go to a "preferred" restaurant and then walk 1/2 mile to the boat. Use another company with newer busses.
