Absolutely recommended! At first we thought it was canceled due to the weather, but we were persuaded to wait a little and it was worth it! A great view of Miami! The pilot was super nice and showed and explained everything! :)

Nice bus ride with a couple stops to get to see and taste the local food and drink. Then the boat tour was excellent with very friendly staff.
