Had an amazing trip with Ocean force adventures and Capt Matt. This tour was the highlight of our Miami trip. We had a beautiful day and saw Miami from a different perspective. Small tour was so much better than the mass crowd and booming microphones in the other boats later saw. Book it ASAP.
It really was a pleasure for us to choose this Small-Group Miami Boat Tour: Biscayne Bay Sightseeing Cruise, to go there and to see.... I could not decide between The Grand Miami Air Tour or a small group miami boat tour, but I finally decide for the second one and It really was the better decision! We enjoi it soo much, also have an oportunity to see a dolphins very close around the boat and ti was just amazing! Our captain was very nice man with lots of information that he told us. Definitely, go for it! Just be shure to take a sun glasses and a sweatshirt ;)
