Enjoy Miami, Florida, by boat!

You have an excellent opportunity to get away from the routine of everyday life, have a new experience, and see new places! Book your Boat trip today! Our boat trip narrated in English and Russian!

We can offer you:

1. Sightseeing tour.
You will see almost all the interesting in Miami from the water- Downtown Miami, famous Islands, and
our Captain will show and tell you where some of your favorite stars reside!
You will stop at the beautiful, like the real Caribbean, Flagner Island with palms and sand beach.
There you can swim/sunbathe, and have lunch/dinner.
Feel free to bring food/beverages that you like.
There is a Bluetooth speaker on the boat, and you can listen to your favorite music.
If you are lucky, you will see dolphins and manatees in the bay.
Don't forget your camera. You can take great pictures!

2. Haulover Sandbar.

If you want to spend your time with friends/family on the water in the sun in one place- Haulover Sandbar waits for you! There you can swim, sunbathe, have lunch, listen to your favorite music, take photos, drink wine, relax...
On the weekend you will see many boats floating in shallow water, lots of people!
If you prefer quiet place, Captain Andrew can go with you to the Sand Spur Island near the Haulover Sandbar where you will see and feed raccoons that live there.
Children will be happy to see raccoons!!
Another nice place in this area is a beautiful lagoon with a clean water, no waves.
You can move by boat from Sand Spur Island to this lagoon.

3 . Key Biscayne.
If you are the first time in Miami, I suggest you go to the Key Biscayne.
This 5- hour boat trip includes a swimming-sunbathing-grilling-relaxing at the Nixon Sandbar + a view from the water on the beautiful 100 years Villa Vizcaya & Stone Barge.
On the way to the Key Biscayne and back, you will enjoy the view of Downtown Miami, famous islands and surrounding areas, houses of celebrities and athletes, luxurious mansions, and beautifully groomed seafronts
Don't forget your camera. You can take great pictures!
This route is exciting and usually takes five hours.

To get out on a boat in Biscayne Bay on a sunny day is just wonderful, fresh salty air, blue skies, the wind on your face... enjoying the beautiful landscape and nature. The mangroves along the coastline... shorebirds overhead and wading nearby... cormorants, pelicans, seagulls... the Miami skyline in the distance, and if you're fortunate, dolphins will show up and perform a trick or two... you never know what you will see along these waters.

* Fuel is not included in the price and depends on the route that you choose:

* Don't always trust the weather report!
Miami weather changes by the hour, and what looked like what was initially going to be a thunderstorm ended up being a beautiful, sunny, and hot day.

    My family and I had such a wonderful time! Tatiana was very responsive and answered all of my questions and concerns. Captain Andrew was very professional and made sure we were safe and comfortable at all times. He really took the time and showed us all the amazing sites and was very knowledgeable. We opted for the sightseeing tour and it was fantastic. Beautiful scenery and a relaxing ride. We stopped by an island where we got off the boat to swim. Captain Andrew helped us and ensured our safety. We are not good swimmers and he even provided us with noddles to ease us into the waters. The boat was very clean, spacious and comfortable. I would highly recommend this team. A beautiful relaxing boat day for our family.

    we had a great time on our 4 hour sightseeing trip with Captain Andrew. He was knowledgeable about the area and took us to see all the “famous sites” of Miami. There is a clean bathroom on board, a cooler (just bring ice and snacks.) overall a great and memorable trip!

    Very great experience. The price for the time (4 hours) is definitely superior to other boats that are more for less time (2 hours). We definitely felt like we got our moneys worth and a great tour of Miami. Definitely suggest the sightseeing tour. The stop on Flagler Island was super refreshing. The captain was super knowledgable on the tour.

    Andrew is attentive. Andrew responds quickly. Andrew is very polite and friendly.
    Andrew was on time for our departure.
    The boat is spacious and decent enough to get good pictures.

    No drinks were provided after stating they would be.
    Andrew only docked the boat once. He docked it once again when we requested to move closer to the beach.
    My guests & I booked the "sightseeing trip" which didn't include much sightseeing at all.
    Andrew only informed us about two celebrity houses and was very blunt with the info given out during sightseeing tour. We would have liked to see and learn more during our four hour trip.
    BRING YOUR OWN SPEAKER. The speaker provided was not loud enough. You can not hear the music once you get off the boat, also dies quickly.

    I had the best birthday weekend and Captain Andrew made the experience great! The boat was super nice and a really great size for us 4 ladies....and I loved the option that it had for a lower deck. The captain was professional and nice. He was also very informative and accommodating. The communication between Tatiana was excellent through the salio website! I would totally recommend them and choose their service again!

    Before the trip - very responsive / timely. The trip itself with 5 other friends (6 total) was good because we made the best of it.

    Where I wasn't happy was the captain's surly attitude. Starting with loading where we had people wanting to use the restroom before we left (so they did use the one at the meeting point) and the captain was irritated. When I got on he told me I must not want to start my trip..I mean come on - we are not using the restroom on board so you're welcome for that. Plus I PAID for the trip which means its set on time so what if we leave later than the CAPTAIN wanted - less time lounging.
    We got on and his bad attitude was evident. HE just started us off in the worst way and my guests and I felt uncomfortable. He seemed to be scolding us. When we pulled to the spot we would stop at he didn't like that and thought we should be in quieter spot(OK) ... it was really his trip and we were along for it. He stayed underneath in the cabin which was good because his bad attitude had already made it uncomfortable for me and it was MY birthday. A shame because the trip would have been a success otherwise. I would not rent from him only because of his attitude -- not the boat.

    We loved our time on this boat. We rented this for my friend's bachelorette party and there were 5 of us. Andrew was our Captain and he was very nice and a great tour guide! Tatiana was very responsive and helpful through all communication. Would definitely recommend!
