“Don't pinch pennies!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I went on this tour as soon as we got to Miami. I believe Aaron was the name of our guide and he was great. The boat goes fairly fast and is comfortable. There is also maximum seating of 6 so you will have a small group. You really get to see all the different main points of Miami from sea. Some of the sites are only accessible by water and I had not seen on previous Miami trips. It is really worth the cost and when you speed by the other sorry cruise boats and "pirate" boat, you will be glad you booked this tour. You see a great amount in a short period. Our guide also did an awesome job avoiding the showers and routed the tour so we did not get rained on. I think it is the best two hour overview you can get of Miami.

“Informative and fun ocean tour of Miami”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We booked the tour online, primarily based on the positive recommendations on this site.

The tour departure location was easy to get to / find. The tour departed on time. The boat was in very good condition. The tour was really good fun. The tour guide had a terrific knowledge of Miami and gave really interesting commentary.

I would highly recommend this tour.

“What a way to see Miami!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Our family booked a Miami tour with Ocean Force and did not regret at all. Riding a Zodiac with Alex was a blast for all of us. Given our age ranged from 10 to 80, all of us found the 2 hour tour informative and spectacular. What a way to see Miami. Would do it again.

“Second visit - Still great trip !”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

For my 15th anniversary and the 60th birthday of my father I arranged a great visit to Florida. My wife and father weren’t aware that we would visit Florida. On big surprise trip !

Last time (2011) I booked a trip with "Ocean Force Adventures" and it was a very nice experience. So this year I contacted Kim and she arranged a special trip for all of us. We even visited some places that we didn’t saw last time! Thanks again Kim and also thank the captain which joined us during the trip! Everyone is still talking about this trip.

You can be sure that I will come back !

Sorry that I wrote this review this late but time really flies :-)

“THE way to see Miami!”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

You haven't been to Miami, if you have not been on the water, and this is the way to do it! Kim, our guide, knew just about everything of anything Miami, from the lifestyles of the rich and famous to the history of Miami. I loved hearing about the sights, but for me the highlight was going over Biscayne Bay at 45mph towards Stiltsville, a place you cannot get to without a boat. Highly recommended!
