Great intimate tour. Boat is small so max for tour is six people which was good. We did have our tour time changed the day before our tour from 2pm to 5pm due to technical issues which was a bit of a hassle as it meant rescheduling another booking however in the end it was fast fun and interesting and...

Thank you for taking the time to do this review! I apologize for needing to push the tour back a couple of hours, but we needed to make sure that the boat was in perfect running order before the tour for safety to our guests. More

We really had fun on the tour with Mike. First of all we were lucky that we were only two on the tour. Mike more or less tailored the tour to our interest, which was great. He as huge insight knowledge about the bay area and also about who lives were in the celeb houses. Also he's got some very... More

It does happen sometimes that guests end up getting the tour without anyone else, but it's also an option to make it a private tour for a nominal fee. Just request a private tour if you want it next time. Also keep in mind that we also provide sunset tours and sandbar excursions! Thanks for the great review! More

This tour may be more expensive than the other larger boat tours, but it is definitely worth it! Mike was very entertaining and knowledgeable of the history of Miami. He also shows you big celebrity homes so you won't be overloaded with all history stuff. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Miami for the first time.

That's funny that I don't overload guests with the history of Miami! I try to make it a good mix of past and present, but I can overload you with history about the city if you are a history buff! Please come see us again next time you're in Miami and remember, we also do the sunset cruises and sandbar... More

Small boat - only 6 on our tour. Excellent way to see all of Miami including multi-million dollar homes and yachts. Lots of historical and other information. About one and a half to 2 hours.

The girls weekend wouldn't have been complete without our speedboat ride with captain Mike. He was informative with history of Miami and fantastic with the celebrity low down. It was a great day circling around the great city of Miami and seeing the many celebrity homes. Highly recommend.

I'm a local and we had some friends in town for the week. So we took them out to see Miami from the water. Mike is so knowledgeable about the history and landmarks he make the hour and a half go by so quickly. I will be back when I have peeps to entertain.
