      Booked the pirate ship...
      Nick_M, Apr 2024
      Booked the pirate ship cruise because we thought it would be fun for the kids but other than the boat looking like a pirate ship, there's nothing for kids on this. It's just a homes sight seeing tour around the bay area while you are on a pirate ship.
      Not truly a Kid's expirience
      Jorge_H, Mar 2024
      Not truly a tour for kids, its was just a small trip showing rich and famous properties in the miami coast line area. I thought it was similar to the one they do in Cleawater Florida for the kids with real pirates fun entertainment, but truly, nothing for kids, not sure why to advertise a theme of pirates with no fun for kids. Makes no sense. Sorry, not a recomended expirience.
      Non-Family Friendly Tourist Trap to Avoid
      Kenney_G, Feb 2024
      This was advertised as a family friendly pirate themed boat ride on the water. After getting your picture taken with a pirate dressed member of the tour, this is where the family interaction ends. The host proceeded to take us around the harbor, music blaring from his playlist while showing us wealthy homes from celebrities. In between homes, he was on his phone fooling around. There was no interaction outside of the pirate dressed member coming around later to try and sell us the photo he took earlier. This is plain and simple a tourist trap that failed to deliver on expectations. I would avoid at all costs.

      Thank you very much for your comment, we do not offer activities on board or interactions on board... we offer a tour of Miami houses, for the whole family (children, adults, seniors) We hope to have the opportunity to see you again.
      Fun cruise.

      An overall disappointing experience
      Maurizio_S, Jan 2024
      An overall disappointing experience. The pirate theme stops at the clothing of one person I think representing the ship's captain there were no swords or anything else handed out nor were there opportunities for "pirate" photos. It is a boat ride with blaring music and a hard-to-understand commentary shouted over the microphone by a DJ. The intent is to sell lots of things to drink from the galley bar. The ship was overcrowded ad ademption on the foredeck there were 16 of us when the sign indicated a maximum occupancy of 12 people this was at the expense of experience and safety. All in all I did not like it and would not recommend it.
      A Fun Family Excursion for a Great price.
      B_M, Jan 2024
      Had a wonderful experience. The Captain was amazing and our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. Our kids 10 and 8 enjoyed it as much as us. It takes the perfect amount of time.
      Worth it

      DJ was awesome...fantastic music selection. Tour was fun. Loved being on the water for sunset. Cool to see millionaire homes.
      Response from Host, Jul 2023
      Very cool!!! Thank you for leaving us a nice review. Thank you very much for spending the day with us!
      Did not get on the pirate ship. Went on a regular boat instead. Very disappointing.
      Judi_Y, Jul 2023
      It was raining very hard, and we got caught with the bridge up. Pay attention to the directions, as they are confusing, and we ended up getting dropped off at the wrong spot by our Uber. We got to the podium about 15 minutes late. (I tried to call the number provided for Miami Aqua Tours, but there was no answer.) We told the gentleman we had tickets for the pirate ship at 3:30pm. He simply said "No pirate ship. Boat leaves at 4:30." He pointed to a picture of a regular boat and walked away. We figured due to the weather, the pirate ship was down, so we made the best of it. The "sightseeing" tour was truly only celebrity homes being pointed out, which was interesting. However, while being out on the bay, we were shocked to see that the pirate ship was out and about. Why didn't he let us on it? Why was there no explanation? My daughter was very disappointed.

      An average boat tour not sailing tour
      Gabriel_M, Jul 2023
      The boat tour was scheduled for 7:30 pm and left at 7:50 pm, “ the only sailing boat in the bay “ is a big lie, it was just an engine boat, very old and unkept but the tour guide was knowledgeable and entertainer.

      Fun tour. Nice views close to sunset. Loud music at times but informative re the houses of the rich and famous. Drinks available on board - they take card payments.

      Massiel_G, Dec 2022
      Sadly the cruise was out of service So we can't enjoy it. But we ride another cruise and we had fun anyway.
      We were really ...
      Lizeth_G, Nov 2022
      We were really disappointed because they cancel the pirate boat tour . The offer another tour in sted it was good but we were so excited about the pirate show tour and they had to cancel. 😒
      Lina_C, Aug 2022
      The DJ and the crew were nice and the boat is comfortable. A small show was advertised but it didn’t happen. Still it was good tour to get to see the famous mansions.
      Went with a 90yr old and a toddler
      samantha_d, Jul 2022
      It was nice. There weren’t enough pirate hats for the kids but the tour was enjoyable and they have a playlist that goes along with who owns what expensive mansion - so that was cool
      Relaxing experience
      Kevin_R, Jul 2022
      The music was cool, seeing the beautiful sights and celebrity homes was very cool, definitely recommend this experience, tour guide was great pointing out all the homes and key points of the tour
      Better to buy at Bayside
      Arianna_G, Jul 2022
      Informative. Enjoyed the weather and sightseeing. It was $10 pp more expensive via Viator than at the excursion site.

      From $30.00
