OMG... AMAZING! This was so much fun and the experience couldn't have been better. The guide was on point at explaining what was happening, the various houses and even the bits of history behind things. The captain was in total sync as well and knew when to slow down for an extra minute for a longer story. A small detail but made the experience great overall! The ride was like being on a rollercoaster and was awesome! A little warning - you'll definitely get wet if you sit on the outside. ;)

Such a fun way of seeing the Miami coast! Despite the boat going fast, it wasn’t choppy. It was a smooth drive with loud music, great views and wind in our hair. We loved it and grabbed some really great videos/pictures!

We loved our tour! Joe is an excellent guide--very informative and knowledgeable! We had lots of fun and saw dolphins along the way and found some beautiful shells! Thank you Joe! The Flanagans

My friend and I went on this tour to just be on a boat in Miami, and it did not disappoint. We toured star island and we got to see the Miami skyline. It was also fun going fast on the water.

We had so much fun on this tour and would definitely come again.
