If you are hoping to get a look at Miami from a vantage point that you won’t be able to find anywhere else, a Miami Aqua Tours Sightseeing Cruise is a stellar idea. Take an 80-minute tour around the natural beauty of Biscayne Bay and the Venetian Islands while enjoying tasty food and refreshing beverages from the bar that is onboard the boat.
In addition to seeing what Mother Nature has blessed Miami with, you’ll also have the chance to look at all of the homes of the rich and famous that are in and around South Beach. While expert tour guides narrate the experience simultaneously in both English and Spanish, you will be whisked by top tourist attractions like American Airlines arena, Bongos Cuban Café, the Miami Herald Building, the Children’s Museum, Parrot Jungle Island, Miami Beach and South Point Park.
There are three boats available and they all offer truly intimate settings to see the sights. Island Princess (a two-deck vessel) has a maximum capacity of 119 people, the El Loro (Pirate Boat) has a maximum capacity of 75 people and the Heritage of Miami II (the only commercial sailboat in Miami) holds just 41 guests!
From the North: Take I-95 South to 395 East. Exit at NE 2nd Ave/Biscayne Boulevard, continue straight. Make a right onto Biscayne Blvd and go straight until Bayside Marketplace on the left.
From the South: Take I-95 North to Biscayne Boulevard exit, follow exit ramp and take a left at the stop sign on Biscayne Blvd. Follow Biscayne Blvd. and take a right on Third Street.
From South Beach: Take Collins Avenue to 5th Street and head East toward the main land of Miami. Take the Biscayne Blvd. exit and make a left at the second light onto Biscayne Blvd.
