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.
Views of Biscayne and Miami were superb. It was an easy process booking online and we had no issue with our Viator voucher. Definitely worth doing.
We had a lovely trip on the biscayne bay cruise it was a hot day in miami and seeing all the luxury properties made me a a tad jealous but was amazing to see how the luckier halfs live a world away from the streets of london although i live along the river thames but miami weather a lot better ! my husband and I are quite big film buffs and enjoyed the famous film locations of miami, no problems with the vouchers, friendly staff one thing which I thought was abit steep was the photo you are offered at the end $35 we did not make a purchase as most photos we was offered at other activities where all $20 millionaires row a must do when in Miami !!!!!
Excelente tour. bajo costo, con narracion en 3 idiomas ingles/espanol/frances.
El tiempo de recorrido es bueno, porque tienes tiempo para tomar fotos/videos.
Por eso y por el costo, se me hace muy bueno... Sobre todo para alguien que visita Miami por primera vez. En verdad lo recomiendo.
I enjoyed this tour very much. The place to board the boat is at Bayside Marketplace downtown and it is a wonderful place to hang out. It reminded me of The Navy Pier in Chicago except with way better stores. The tour itself was nice. It was good to see Miami from the water.
