Island Queen Boat Tours offer a number of different sized boats throughout the day. We went on the ‘Bayside Blaster’ – a smaller open boat (others are larger and undercover). We loved it as it was all open with nothing blocking your view. We sat at the very front which was excellent. Great informative sightseeing cruise around the Bay of... More

The Island Queen is nice boat. There is outdoor seating on the second deck and a cash bar. There is indoor/enclosed seating and tables on the first deck along with outside standing (in the front and rear of the vessel). The cruise lasts an hour and a half and is very informative. The best part of the entire cruise is... More

A nice way to spend a hot and humid afternoon in Miami The boat was modern and had a bar with a reasonable selection of drinks and snacks The commentary was about right and pointed out the celebrity houses adding a little humour here and there At $50 for two for an hour and a half is represented fair value

We were only in the area for one night before a cruise and we didn't have time to look around Miami but thought we would do the Millionaires Row cruise. We were told it was a 90 minute tour and we paid our money and arrived back to the boat at the time we were told to. Everyone had to... More

We had an hour and half hour tour at 8:00pm; it was with sunset time. We had so much relaxing time with beautiful views of Miami's buildings. We were satisfied with the tour as it worths the price.

We picked this trip having read all the reviews for the many boat trips from Bayside. We went on the 1st tour of the day which was good as it was less crowded. The commentary was very informative, the timing of the tour was good - a full 90 mins, & the locations seen were great. There was a raffle... More

For $25 ($3 discount online plus $1 fee of some sort), it wasn't that great, but with time to kill before my flight out of Miami, it was something close to do.

The boat tour was nice, saw the promised sights. Length was good, plenty to see the whole time. What would make this a 5-star rating for me would be if they were able to include some of the art deco buildings. We tipped the tour guide, although we were not solicited to do so. Beware, however, of the raffle they... More

Pleasant trip around Miami. Took a 90 minute trip. Seating was lawn chairs arranged on the top deck - ok for the 90 minute cruise. Landmarks were pointed out in English and Spanish. Most of the tour concentrated on celebrity houses. It would have been more interesting to see places to visit later, or some pretty scenery. Drinks and snacks... More

We came back after a decade to show our kids some celebrity homes. It was a usual tour geared towards tourists. The crew was informative and nice. It's a bit pricy, and there are many competitors who offer the same service for the same price or less. I'd tell anyone to ask around before settling with this tour company.
