      Not as nice as before
      I did the same ride 5 years ago. This time it was less impressive. No good choice of music (Metallica Vs R&B), less good explainations. les thrills- Less speed and turns.

      Fun and Affordable
      In summary, a fun 45 minute spin around that is economical and great for the whole family. You learn about the rich and famous and take a ride out on the water. The tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable. I recommend it with no reservations.

      Very short trip and our party could not sit together
      After rushing to get to the kiosk, I was asked for the CVV code for my credit card. I paid with Apple Pay and it does not provide that info and I don't keep that card on me. It was a slight hiccup but once we were on the boat, we were not able to sit together. The seats are supposed to be for three but really only pairs sit together. My friend and I both sat next to two unfriendly couples. The one I sat next to had a giant selfie stick so I moved. The ride was maybe 30 minutes but was uncomfortable and if I could get my money back, I would.

      A good time had by most
      My kids (13 & 9) and I had a blast!! Way easier to keep their attention than the other options for the Star Island tours. Best part of our Miami trip for them, hands down. My wife appreciated their enthusiasm, but with a little anxiety around the ocean and her kids in a boat, it was a little rough for her! But still, we will always remember it!

      Excellent!
      Great service provided by Captain Alex and another captain (can’t remember name). My family and I enjoyed it very much. I wasn’t able to tip as I didn’t have cash; maybe Venmo should be an option to tip! These people work so hard to keep us entertained!

      The only reason I didn't give a 5 is I wanted more thrill! I have done this in multiple cities and there were always more twists and turns but nonetheless a great time for all!

    Very fast, loud and short tour of Miami harbor that was not worth the $127 fee for 3 people. Only the green boat was available for our tour even though I booked the yellow boat. DJ was funny but hard to hear over the extremely loud music. People doing shots in line ahead of us while waiting to board. Almost everyone took off their masks once they were in the boat and we were packed in shoulder to shoulder.

    It's not 45 minutes, and they never go into the ocean by South Beach as advertised. We ate lunch and watched them for hours before our scheduled time, and they ALWAYS push back 10-15 minutes late and arrive back right on time. It's really a 30-35 minute tour not 45 minutes as advertised. And while they claim they go into the ocean by South Beach "when weather conditions permit," they never do. Even our day was stellar perfect with no wind and perfectly calm seas and they made an excuse that they didn't want to take the time to pass by South Beach. And the "Thriller" is mild at best. It's not terrible, just nothing special and false advertising.

    We booked this activity in advance. We arrived early but we had a difficult time finding the location.
    We contacted the number provided in order to notify them we are attempting to locate them, they advised us the final passenger has boarded.

    Even after rushing to locate them and telling them we were on the way … the boat left.

    They told us to wait for the next boat and see if anyone cancelled, after waiting for 45 minutes - 1 hour we walked back to the kiosk just to be told to wait for the next boat (another 25 minutes).
    We were not refunded.

    I suggest if you are booking this activity you should arrive VERY early to run around and locate them. If you miss the boat - don’t attempt to wait for the next one.
    They won’t accommodate you or try to get you onto the next boat.

    Thank you for choosing us and for your review. We always try to assist our customers but not always we have seats left to accommodate additional requests. We do ask everyone to arrive 30 minutes prior to our dock for check in and boarding. We save you seat until the end, when you don't show up, that seat leaves empty, reason why we cant refund, but as a courtesy, we do try to re-accommodate you if possible. We look forward to welcoming you back in a near future for a better experience.

    A nice change from the more standard (and slow) boat cruises. Not that expensive in Miami terms, about $45. Standard spiel, nothing special, but a beautiful setting and lots of fun.

    You can easily find $5 off coupons in hotels or anywhere that has those brochure kiosks. Bring those savings with you in cash, because they are unpleasantly aggressive about tips. The minute you sit down, the guide is talking about how he will be talking about tips, lol, and how they are dependent on tips and how tips are their livelihood and how the baby's going to die if you don't tip - okay, I made the last one up, but their shame game is strong.

    If you clearly 100% expect a tip from every person, you might want to mention that before I'm on the boat. Lots of people don't routinely carry cash! Add a line to the information section: if our tour guide does a great job, please consider tipping them. A gentle and timely reminder when it matters most: before we're on the boat. I did tip, but the guilting and the aggressive thrusting of a giant bucket in my face really tempted me not to.

    We had no trouble buying four tickets on site for a tour about an hour away, but we went on a weekday.

    My wife and I came to Miami and did a lot of touristy things, this was by far the most fun per dollar spent. We are avid boaters at home on inland lakes and really enjoyed the experience. Our captain did a nice job with a throttling ride and the narrator did a great job pointing out sites when we weren’t doing 40 miles per hour.

    You have to do the sunset booking (based on time of year) to truly experience this boat ride. I'm not usually a fan of star stalking but I am a fan of great architecture, and cruising around Star Island certainly provides that...including 'Iagra Falls. ;) I always could go faster and with more thrills, but there were enough twists and turns to make this a family friendly adventure. Great job, guys!

    It was a blast!! I don’t like boats but my husband and I loved this. The driver went really fast at certain times and it was like being on a roller coaster. The tour guide was great and showed us all the celebrity mansions. The view of Miami was great as well.I would definitely recommend this speedboat tour if you want something fun to do.

    Out of this world expert boat driver gave us a truly thrilling memorable speedboat ride. The drivers'knowledge of the bay and riding the wakes of other boats made for some super exciting runs.

    The Thriller speedboat tour was fantastic! As soon as the boat left the dock the party was on. Music began playing and the tour guide began the show! The tour was filled with many jokes and interesting facts about Miami and surrounding islands. There’s a very good chance you will get wet! The whole tour was exciting and well worth the price of admission. The crew were very friendly and it was very clear they enjoy what they do. It made for a very memorable experience! The next time we come back to Miami we will be taking another Thriller Miami Tour!
