Took the ride from Bayside to Miami Beach marina. Hot sunny afternoon. There was shade on board and a great breeze with the scent of seawater. Went by the mouth of the Miami River, past the huge port cranes, got a great view of downtown and Fisher Island. Best part was the dolphins that swam across our path and then directly at the boat to dip underneath not more than a yard away. At $15 one way per adult not an everyday event for us but well worth it as a sometime treat.

Used this fine service as part of our bite of Boat Show. Spectacular way to travel, lovely staff, great views from your perch as you make your way to the next stop.

The bayfront itself is pretty touristy. Dealers are trying to lure one into their of shops. However, this is also the location for a ride with the Miami Water Taxi. You can either do a round trip or simply get back to South Beach. If you go on a round trip you have a fantastic view onto the city from the water side (do that!). Usually the ride to Miami Beach takes 45 minutes, but since we are only three passengers on this trip, we hop on a small power boat, which brings us to the Miami Beach Marina in only 20 minutes. During the ride, we pass by a harbor, which also looks very impressive.

Our group joined to celebrate a friend's birthday with a different approach and really enjoyed the ride. It was pleasant and different. Will do it again! It is a nice way to see things that as residents do not get to see every day.

Great view from a different perspective, My wife, 3 year old and I decided to take this tour we saw online (discounts) and man was it worth it. Eddy and Gus were super friendly and made the tour lots of fun. We toured around the bay during sunset and saw parts of Miami you can’t see from land. We left feeling satisfied and happy. Even though it’s in a tourist mall, these folks were not there to rip you off. Make sure you check these guys out.

Best way to go to South Beach from Bayside market, It is cheapest and fastest way to travel between south beach and bay side. The problem is that the service is very limited. So one has to plan accordingly.

Great little way to explore Miami!, This was a great find! It's a fun, affordable way to explore South Miami. Highly recommend - buy the round trip ticket, enjoy 10% off local bars/restaurants when you show them your ticket. Then, hop off and explore stops along the route. Get back on when you are ready to continue on. We had so much fun and the staff provided an excellent experience on the trip back from South Beach, telling us about all the celebrity homes and the insane price tags, as well as local landmarks. Loved it, and you get the absolute BEST pictures of Miami!

great way to see the harbour sights, Fantastic and relaxing way to see the harbour and surroundings. We hopped off and on during the day..... would do it again if we went back to Miami.

Nice way to get around. We booked a round trip with the water taxi, and found it a nice way to experience parts of Miami we hadn't been before. You see Miami from the water, while the captain tells about the houses and history. During warm days it's a nice way to get some cool air.

Lovely way to South Beach  I am a local in Miami and was walking with my dog one Sunday - we passed the Water Taxi, as we have 100's of times and this time we decided to take it from Bayside and back. The dog was allowed, and we were the only ones on the taxi for that trip, so we had the boat to ourselves. The Captain and the First Mate were terrific, even though they were both enjoying their first day on the job. I LOVED it and so did my dog. We had a lovely time and the guys chatted about the area as we motored along. While we didn't get off the boat until we returned to Bayside, we will definitely use the Water Taxi to go to SoBe for lunch at Monty's or for a walk on Ocean Drive. Same price as Uber from Brickell, and on and off all day long is optional. Who wouldn't love it? We passed the Port of Miami up close, which is fascinating to see, and passed awesome mega yachts along the way. Awesome way to go! Can't wait to try the one in Fo

Fast and cost effective
Took me to where I needed to be. The cost was perfect and the Captain was really nice. He gave great history.
