In addition to year round great weather, South Florida is replete with wonderful scenery. Another example can be found on the verdant Biscayne Bay. The Bayride boat tour of Biscayne Bay and Star Island is a picturesque way to enjoy the scenery. This intimate tour of the area is truly spectacular. On the cruise you get a splendid view of downtown Miami’s skyline. Miami has evolved to have one of the most dynamic skyline’s in the world. We are truly fortunate to have this resplendent backdrop just a short drive from home.
Departure is from Bayside mall located on Biscayne Blvd in downtown Miami. All of the tour boats are covered so the occasional South Florida shower will not be an inconvenience. This is a wittily narrated 90 minute tour.
All the tour guides are very knowledgeable about the area and it’s history. In addition to the awesome view of the downtown skyline, the view of the million dollar mansions are stunning. We have quite the collection of celebrities that own homes on aptly named “Star Island”.
