    This was the perfect way to spend some free time in Miami! It was relaxing and comfortable and we learned about where the celebrities live! I absolutely recommend this trip for a low-key activity in an otherwise high energy city.

    Seeing the city from a different perspective was awesome. However, more information should be provided with regards to parking locations. Thank you.

    So So Tour
    Michael_D, Jan 2024
    It's a nice short cruise. The tour needs more interesting information than just where the celebrities live. How about some interesting history or facts about the Miami area or the wildlife? Our guide was friendly but mentioned "tipping" too many times.

    It was ok
    Aditi_D, Dec 2023
    This trip was 1 hour rather than the 1.5 hours advertised. After telling us that they only wait for 10 mins, we didn't leave for the first 30 mins of the tour time. The guide was nice and entertaining though
    Not the best
    Neha_S, Dec 2023
    They spent a lot of time asking for tips, then passing around a tip jar, then trying to sell photos. Fun boat ride but probably wouldn’t go again.
    Would think again.

    Only 30 minutes of seeing millionaires houses and cruising the rest of the time. Music on board too loud!

    Arthur_T, Nov 2023
    The tour was nice and delivered what they promised, however I would recommend going during the day versus at night if you want to see the celebrity homes.

    Disappointing trip - couldn’t see a thing!
    Kelly_S, Oct 2023
    The boat trip left 40 minutes late - by then it was dark and we couldn’t see any of the sights. Very disappointed. If I wanted a cruise by night I would have booked one.
    Response from Host, Oct 2023
    Thanks for your comments. There's no way we have a delay of 40 minutes, we also recommend people be there 15 minutes before the tour so that we don't have any kind of delay waiting for people. Also at night people enjoy views of Biscayne as well, it's not that dark you mention.
    This Tour is a Must!
    Sherry_L, Sep 2023

    Just okay
    Adrian_W, Jun 2023
    The bay cruise was okay. The first part of the cruise was good, when you actually get to see homes. The last part by the merchant channel is just okay. The tour could be modified to cruise by the bayside buildings. I didn’t really appreciate the ‘vacation’ raffle which was noting more than a timeshare signup. Also, some of the music was inappropriate for children.

    Tips Not Included
    Nathaniel_S, Jun 2023
    It was okay except the rain and couldn’t see much for the price i paid for. Also asking for Tip is not the way to do business. If we wanted to Tip we would have but for the price you pay tips should be included

    Not all I’d hoped it would be
    Kristy_S, Apr 2023
    When I book a paid experience, the last thing I want while enjoying the cruise is to be sold to again and again. Between the timeshare representative and the cruise photo sales, we lost several minutes of enjoying the narration and scenery. Also, the boat left at 6:45 and returned at 7:40. Not exactly a 90-minute cruise. I’d recommend considering one of the many other Biscayne Bay cruise options available.

    Coordinator was very exciting and entertaining, Equipment was very deceiving ,eyesore,please invest in your microphone or PA system, looking for boats that was online

    Thank you for this advice, we will take it into account. The team will be informed in order to proceed with the change. Thank you for choosing Miamiaquatours, we hope to see you again soon.
    Worth the Experience
    James_R, Apr 2023
    Awesome Scenery and extremely interesting narration. I think you should look at having service for food and/or drinks like others we have been on around the world. When you are on such a short trip people aren't going to go all the way downstairs and miss the tour.

    Viator instructions need to be better
    Kirthi_R, Apr 2023
    The directions on viator were very confusing first we had to pick up the tickets and walk to some other location to board. Turns out it was all in the same place. There were no signs of miami aqua tours. It might have been easier to book in person than use viator. The actual tour was fun and the guide’s narration was entertaining.
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    Thank you very much for your review! Really very special. We love spending the day with FUN people!! We enjoy ourselves a lot with you too, so it is usually a great experience in every way. We hope to see you on another adventure. Thanks for coming with us.
