Amazing sight seeing tour by boat of Miami!

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip w/Captain Colin exploring the Miami area by boat. From beautiful mansions, the Miami skyline, Stiltsville, an aquatic National Park, a lighthouse, etc., Cpt. Colin was very informative, knew the history of the area, and allowed us ample time to take pictures. We definitely recommend this trip!

Incredible Miami Boat Tour

Miami in July is balmy so we decided to take to the waters of Biscayne Bay with Ocean Force Adventures Miami. Captain Mike took us on his super fast and fun Zodiac through Port Miami, the Miami River, downtown Miami, and Key Biscayne. We saw Cher’s house, Gloria Estefan’s house, and the Presidential Helipad that Nixon used when he was in residence at his South Florida White House. We also made our way over to Stiltsville, a collection of 7 colorful bay houses on stilts, some used as speakeasies during Prohibition. I highly recommend seeing Miami this way and then grabbing a CitiBike back to your SOBE hotel!
Best Boat Ride I’ve Ever Had

In my 84 years, I’ve never had more fun on a boat than with Captain Mike, and my husband and I used to have a boat for over a decade.

The handsome Captain may be young, but he was very informative and wise beyond his years. He was helpful, patient, and communicative about our touring and boating preferences - mainly going lickety-split quick. Plus, he seemed to enjoy learning about what we’d already learned about from our previous Miami excursions.

There is no one better in the boat touring business than Captain Mike; if only there were a way to give a rating higher than 5 stars.
