My Review
This trip provides about the best photo opportunities around the bay, including downtown Miami, the islands, and Miami Beach. The cruise is frequent enough, every couple hours, that you can show up almost any time and not have to wait too long. If you do have to wait, there's plenty to do at the Bayside Marketplace from which the cruise departs. I went at midday, which provided excellent lighting for photography, though I can imagine around sunset would also make for a nice view. The crew was informative and entertaining, and since the trip only takes an hour and a half, it's ideal for visitors who don't have much time and want a nice overview of the area. Some of the bus tours seem to take all day, and I can't imagine you'd get views this good from street level. The only possible drawback was how many seats were on the upper deck - I was able to move around to find the best views since it wasn't very crowded, but had all those seats been filled, that wouldn't have been nearly as easy. It was a weekday during my spring break, which is apparently earlier than everyone else's.
