This Miami sightseeing cruise via double-decker boat provides an only-in-Miami method of getting to know the city. Cruise through the beautiful Biscayne Bay (optionally with a cocktail in hand), as you sail past the Miami Skyline neighborhood, Venetian Islands, and celebrity mansions. Live commentary provides fun facts and stories from the city’s past.
  • Miami sightseeing cruise is a fun alternative to a city tour
  • See the Miami Skyline district, Miami Beach, Port of Miami, and more
  • Opportunities to see wildlife in its natural habitat
  • Live commentary entertains and informs during your cruise
What to Expect
Make your way to the easy-to-find Bayside Marketplace in Miami to begin your tour. Board a double-decker boat and get cozy in an indoor viewing area or open-air deck—both have great views. Once you set sail, crew members tell you about top Miami sights as you pass them, including standout picks from the Miami Skyline neighborhood, a number of nearby islands, and celebrity homes. This is a great way to get a sense of Miami history and culture from the waters that make it famous. Also, keep a lookout for wildlife, such as dolphins and manatees. If you want, you can purchase soft drinks, beer, or cocktails on board. Your cruise ends at the original starting point.

Surely there are better tours than this one. The tour was advertised for 11:30 but they said to arrive 15 minutes early, which we did. As we boarded the boat they handed everyone a pen and form to fill put to win a cruise. We declined. Next, they wanted pictures of every

I brought a friend that was visiting Miami for the first time on it and she absolutely loved it. I had never been on the tour before but I found that it fully encompasses the essence of Miami. They had great service and the crew was amazing!
