Good way to see Miami shore line.
We arrived early and were able to get earlier ship. You sit in plastic chairs on upper covered deck with open windows.Once out of port you can go outside and below to lower deck where there are tables and chairs. Upper deck has a cash bar and limited snack. chips and soda, water. Cocktails were $8-18. Tour guide was very good. Explaining in English and Spanish what you were seeing. Lots of celebrity homes. Nice views of the Miami coast.90 minutes. runs on time. They take you picture before you get on the boat. $30 to purchase when you get off. Don't forget to Tip your tour guide. Tip box is when you get off.There was a raffle for a free trip. its a timeshare type trip. so if you don't want calls and a sales pitch don't enter. Have Fun. Watch the parking garage video a few times before you go. Lots of cars dropping off so you can miss the turn for parking garage. I did. Pay for your parking before you return to your car. Cash or credit. If you don't get a receipt is ok- you can scan your entry ticket.You must pay. We paid $5.00. Did boat tour and got ice cream at Hagen Daz.$15 for a small cup and 1 cone. Ouch. Lots of shops right there also restaurants.

Perfect ending to a perfect day
I took my daughter on this exact tour three years ago and we loved it, so I suggested to my husband that he experience it as well on our trip to Miami this week. He loved it as well! The staff is fun and personable, the length of the tour is perfect, not too long and not too short. I feel it is worth the price to get out on the water for a little bit. The sights are great! We went on the 430pm tour on a sunny day, then had dinner at Bayside Marketplace. Nice afternoon!

Boat tour of Star Island
This was a wonderful last minute decision. We wanted to experience Miami as a group without getting too messy/sweaty since we had afternoon reservations. This was perfect! Crew and guides were great, the view was fantastic, the Miami Skyline is a think of beauty from the water. Only “negative” is more a note on the communication. The “free drink” is not available at bar on the boat, but at the dock-side bar. Also, the “drink” is water, soda or a light beer. Not a big deal, the cost of the tour was well worth the experience without the drink. But it was not what we anticipated while booking online.

Celebrity Homes Boat Trip
We really enjoyed this trip and thought it was good value. The tour guide was great and we loved the music he played during the tour. The margaritas from the bar onboard were great too. Loved seeing all the fabulous houses.

Rich and Famous Boat Cruise with Mojito Bar on top deck
We have lived in Miami for a few years and always wanted to do this cruise as we see the boats pass our Apt balcony daily. At first we boarded and found no upper deck seats available and no Bar on board so went down stairs and politely asked if we could get off and wait for the next cruise. The manager (Junior) was very accommodating and so we waited 30mins and got first choice seats on open air top deck with a Mojito Bar and beers. Prices where not too crazy for Miami so had 2 drinks each which were strong just like I like them. The commentary was in English and Spanish and very lively. Overall the experience was great.

A lot of fun!
The staff was so nice and helpful! The boat tour was a lot of fun and we really enjoyed it! The top floor did get very pack so it wasn’t difficult to be comfortable because there was a lot of people and since the bottom of the boat is covered a lot of people didn’t want to be down there! But other that! It was an awesome time and fun for all ages!

Good experience
It was a nice way to end our trip. The narrator (forgot her name) was hilarious. Its a smooth and slow paced cruise not super fast which is what we were looking for because we had our toddler with us. They were great at accomodating us with our stroller as well.
