After everyone hops aboard one of Miami Aqua Tours' three ships sightseeing tours embark on 75-minute cruises around the Biscayne Bay and Venetian islands. Knowledgeable tour guides narrate in both English and Spanish as the boat sails past sights such as seaside mansions, downtown Miami, and Miami Beach. During two-hour sunset-champagne cruises, sailors hop aboard the Heritage of Miami II, a luxurious 45-passenger schooner, and explore Biscayne Bay while sipping champagne, sampling cheeses and pâté, and relaxing to the tune of lounge music. Despite the elegant atmosphere, the casual dress code means guests don't have to wear seersucker life preservers.
Sightseeing cruises depart hourly from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunset-champagne cruises are scheduled to depart before sunset and return after dark; please ask for the specific boarding time when you make your reservation.
Miami Aqua Tours
Miami Aqua Tours’ fleet of three Coast Guard–certified vessels sweeps away passengers on holiday parties, evening voyages, and picturesque tours of Miami’s coastline that depart seven times a day. Boats, including the company's Island Princess, embark from Bayside Marketplace, cruising along Miami’s glittering coastline as the downtown buildings wistfully wave goodbye. Tours float past Star Island’s majestic celebrity mansions and weave around the Venetian Islands as seafarers gaze into the ocean beyond, searching for lost treasure or the keys to the captain's jet ski. Alternatively, passengers can stroll from port to starboard aboard a schooner or a 58-foot pirate ship on Saturday and Sunday during the daytime or on scenic sunset tours. While drinking in nautical breezes, customers can sip liquefied libations from the ship’s bar as tour guides narrate Miami’s tell-all memoir in both English and Spanish.
