Nearly every aspect of sparkling life in the seaside jewel of Miami revolves in some way around the water. So it’s no surprise that one of the best ways to experience the city is to hop of the Miami boat tour. They depart every hour on a trip around beautiful Biscayne Bay.
Some of the best Miami boat tours begin at the Bayside Marketplace Marina. There the waters of Biscayne Bay meet the modern Miami skyline, in one of the city’s busiest and most visited districts. Board one of the Miami boat tours’ comfortable craft there, taking off first among the luxury cruise ship giants that dock nearby during their south Florida port of call.
Leaving the urban cityscape in your wake, the tour takes a direct route toward Miami Beach. There, clear turquoise waterways cut through some of the most exclusive real estate enclaves in the world. Waterfront mansions in a rainbow of colors, boasting the most envy-inspiring of amenities, drift through your field of vision. You float island to island in the comfort of your fully-loaded tour boat.
Your tour travels along the aptly titled Millionaire’s Row, eventually cruising past opulent one of Miami’s poshest island neighborhoods, Fisher Island. You’ll wonder which of the maritime manses belong to famous residents like Julia Roberts, Andre Agassi, Michael Jordan or Oprah Winfrey. They all are reported property owners on the island. No wonder Fisher Island is known as having the highest per capita income of any place in the United States.
Take it all in on a cruiser that allows for awesome vistas, from both inside and outside the craft. Get the best view from the boat’s open-air upper deck. Or enjoy the enclosed air-conditioned comfort of one of the lower-level salons. You’ll still catch all the sights as they drift by your window.
Either way, the best of Biscayne Bay is best seen while floating by on one of the many Miami sightseeing cruises. They are just waiting for you to step aboard.
