I had an excellent experience with Island Queen Cruises. The staff was very friendly and informative. The tour provides great sights of Miami, Miami Beach, the Biscayne Bay, and various islands in the bay (including Star Island, home to many celebrities). Refreshments are also available on board. They can take your picture for $15 also. I had this done, and the maid at my hotel had thrown it away. After contacting the staff at Island Queen Cruises, they were able to e-mail the photo to me! They have excellent customer service! This is a great way to see Miami by sea, and the trip duration is about 1.5 hours. It was a great experience!
The trip was awesome and I must say that me and my Fiance' enjoyed every bit of it! We are looking forward to doing something in August.
I booked this trip for my parents who are on a vacation here. They seem to have enjoyed the tour. Sure feels good to see the Millionaire's row :)
Loved the tour, it was very nice and informative. Would highly recommend this tour..!
This is a great way to tour the greater Miami area by water. With wonderful views of the Miami skyline, South Beach, and famous architecture, it is a great way to enjoy Miami and share traveling experiences with fellow travelers. Plus, you can dine and visit the shops at Bayside Marketplace before or after the tour. I would definitely add this tour to the itinerary!
This was a great activity and well worth the price. The tour guide was very informative and it was just nice to see some of the homes of celebrities that you've learned to love. I would definitely recommend this tour
The cruise was pretty good. It was short and straight to the point. It didnt take up too much of our time, and we got to take god pictures.
The boat cruise was through "Queens" and their staff on the boat was great and had very useful info. However while waiting in line I had a question and one of the staff memebers was a smart ass. Did not appreciate it one bit.
nachos/cheese or some semi-simple food would have been really great.
Highly recommend the Biscayne Bay 90 minute cruise if you want to see a lot of Miami, but only have a short time to do it.
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.
