It's was great... there was a delay but it end up working in our favor cause we were running late.. but the hostess was nice in calling us asking us were we still coming.. and that was very considerate of them which in return we didn't have to worry about losing money... Everyone was overall a delight.. down to earth... and made us feel comfortable including the captain.. will definitely recommend and wear something light because you will definitely get wet!!!!

I was in Miami and I wanted to do something different! this was a great experience, especially because they give you the option to drop you off at Miami beach and ride back with them later that day. I would've wished they would explain a little better on the app how the whole plan is, it seemed a little confusing but overall it was great, I highly recommend it.

It was soooooo funnn I did not expect to have that much fun we brought our friends from out of town as well. Andres and captain mike are soooo kind .

Had a blast get views, music and drinks. Will definitely go again. Love that martini. There is nothing like miami on the water at night. Pat
