Hang on to your hats, caps and sun-glasses! Definitely the way to go if you have kids and teenagers. 45-minute ride.

Our kids loved it as the sleek speedboat whizzed past the islands, the port and the Miami skyline.


A super fun ride, it covers the rich and famous spots and is as far as we know, the only tour that ventures out in the Ocean and along South Beach.

These are small boats and they fill up quick. When we arrived around noon they were booked up for the next two sailings, so we had plenty of time for lunch and browse around Bayside, but if your time is limited, it is best to book in advance.
