On this comprehensive bus ride, cruise down bustling Ocean Drive, the major thoroughfare in South Beach. Drive by the Villa Casa Casuarina, aka the Versace Mansion, the famous Art Deco District and much more. Enjoy lunch in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood to wrap up the morning portion of the tour.
For the first part of the afternoon, head to Miami’s waterfront for a 75-minute cruise along beautiful Biscayne Bay. See the view of Miami’s sun-splashed skyline, plus Fisher Island, Miami Beach, the Port of Miami's cruise ship and cargo districts and much more. Check out the high-rise hotels and condos plus the spectacular multi-million-dollar ocean front homes that line Miami Beach. And don’t forget to look down into the crystal clear water for the exotic marine life, like manatees, dolphins, manta rays and more. Take a seat on the outer deck of the boat for a panoramic view or head downstairs to the enclosed, air-conditioned cabin. Soft drinks, beer, wine, cocktails and snacks are available for purchase on board the boat.
Finally, it’s off to one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth — the Florida Everglades — for an exciting airboat adventure. After a short drive, take a 30- to 45-minute airboat excursion through Everglades National Park. Skim along the grassy water while listening to fun facts and learning about the area’s subtropical ecosystem from the experienced captain.
