I was in Miami and I wanted to do something different! this was a great experience, especially because they give you the option to drop you off at Miami beach and ride back with them later that day. I would've wished they would explain a little better on the app how the whole plan is, it seemed a little confusing but overall it was great, I highly recommend it.

What an amazing experience!!! Captain Bob and Connor know how to show a great time and loaded with fun information Too!!!!! Gorgeous boat and beautiful scenery… what more could you want. Simply incredible….

Had a blast get views, music and drinks. Will definitely go again. Love that martini. There is nothing like miami on the water at night. Pat

Very nice tour. The boat is unfortunately very old, but ultimately that is not important.
