Marcelo was Great. He is a very knowledgeable, friendly, and gracious Host. His boat tour goes above and beyond all the others. The sunset tour is spectacular. You have to see it to believe it. The best way to do that is with a boat captain like Marcelo. He delivers. You will enjoy a thrill ride, sightseeing tour, and a relaxing water excursion all in one. 5 +++ Stars.

My wife and I were visiting Miami for a long weekend, and on the spur of the moment decided we wanted to charter a boat to go out onto the water on a beautiful day. We found Marcelo on Trip Advisor, and he had availability almost immediately because he was coming back from a scuba diving trip that morning and did not have an afternoon booking. We met him very near to the place we were staying, and he was very down to earth and friendly from the start. He asked us what we wanted to do, and basically customized the trip for us, taking us wherever we wanted to go. We went to a snorkling spot and had a swim, took the boat all the way around the southern tip of Miami Beach and up the Intracoastal. Marcelo was such a nice guy, and very easy to talk with. This was no "tourist boat trip" showing celebrity houses, although I'm sure we could have done this if we wanted to. Instead, my wife and I had a private trip that lasted three hours, and Marcelo dropped us off within a block of our condo. The boat itself is a Zodiak, but is large and feels very much like you are riding on a motorboat. Because the boat is light, Marcelo's fuel economy is very low, and I suspect that this is one of the reasons he is able to offer such favorable pricing. I could not believe how inexpensive it was our private, really enjoyable trip. Customers should understand, however, that there is not lounge seating on board and there is no bathroom. However, the boat is nevertheless comfortable with padded bench seating and a deck upon which you can lounge. Marcelo offers custom trips wherever you want to go on the water, is extremely professional (he is a mechanical engineer doing this with his own boat on the side), and is a very responsible and safe captain. We had a great time with him, and he offers a tremendous value for the money. You can pay with a credit card right at the dock using his iPhone, and email yourself the receipt. My wife and our family will hire RIB Adventures again without hesitation. In business, it's always best to strive to create "raving fans" of your service, and Marcelo's trip for us gave us the reasons we needed to not only use him again, but to strongly recommend him to others.

First I want to thank Trip Advisor for a successful adventure. I found this attraction on tripadvisor. I'd never heard about it before. Wanted to do something fun with two teenage boys while we were in the Miami Beach Area. Had no clue what to do. You know how picky teenagers can be. Well, let me tell you, this was by far the best thing we did the entire week next to seeing a Heat game. The 2 1/2 hour tour was FULL of adventure and laughs. The captain Marcello took us all around the Miami Beach and we stopped at the COOL Sandbar int he middle of the intercoastal where the kids got out and danced to the music and my gilfriend and I took in the sun. We toured all the famous homes by sea and he was SOOOO informative and funny!!! My kids did not want the trip to end. Two weeks later they are still talking about it. A big shout-out to Marcello for doing such a wonderful job and showing us a part of Miami we would've never had a chance to experience. A Must do!!

My friends and I had the time of our lives on Marcelo's boat. In fact, it was so memorable that it has become a staple for us every time we visit Miami! If you are looking for a fun, thrilling, relaxing, breathtaking experience...this is the adventure for you! The captain is nothing short of fantastic and wants everyone on the boat to have a great time. He's very professional, hospitable and knowledgeable of the area. No matter what you're looking for, you are guaranteed to have a wonderful time. There is no better way to explore Miami! We'll be back soon! I.A.
