Frequently Asked Questions

Can I change my reservation date and/or time after I book?

We allow date and time changes to any reservation on a space available basis at no charge.

Can we bring cameras, purses and bags aboard the tour?

There is individual dry storage under each passenger’s seat for small purses, bags and other personal items. We encourage bringing cameras aboard and it is safe to keep them out during the tours.

Can we bring food and drinks on this tour?

Ice cold bottled water is available for $1 per bottle. Guests are welcome to bring non-alcoholic beverages aboard, however we discourage bringing food as this is an active and adventurous tour.

How is this boat tour different from the other less pricey options found in Miami on the larger boats?

Simply put, there is no comparison other than we are both boat tours. If you are looking for a tour that will provide you with a cursory overview of Miami and a main focus on “Millionaire’s Row” and the celebrity homes within a small 3- square-mile area of the bay, these larger vessels and land/seas tours do a decent job at a fair price. If you want something more in-depth, more personalized and more engaging, our adventure tour offers all of that and more. We show our guests there is much more to Miami than just Star Island and celebrities, and although you will see some of that, we focus on a much broader spectrum. We are the only boat tour that travels over more than 40-miles of Biscayne Bay to show you all of Miami from the water. Ocean Force Adventures is a very personalized experience with only 6 passengers per tour delving into the history and culture of Miami while taking you right into the areas where it all happened. You will experience fascinating areas of Miami most visitors don’t even know are there.

If I book this tour and bad weather causes a cancellation do I get a refund?

We will provide a full refund to customers if weather forces a cancellation of your tour before departure. After departure, if weather causes an interruption or cancellation we will try to reschedule the tour or provide you with a voucher for another tour good for 12 months from your tour date.

Is this tour safe and comfortable for children and/or passengers with injuries?

We recommend children be at least 4 years of age to take this tour as they will need to understand safety instructions and be able to handle boating at moderately fast speeds. We do not recommend this tour for passengers with severe back injuries or those with medical conditions that might be adversely affected by normal boating operations.

What is the tipping/gratuity policy on the tours?

Tips are accepted and appreciated. At the end of every charter, at your discretion, is is customary to tip the Captain.

What is your cancellation policy?

We are a 6-passenger small group boat tour with limited capacity per tour and fewer opportunities to replace late cancellations that can significantly impact our operations. We appreciate your understanding our 48 hour cancellation policy. Cancellation notices received within 48 hours of your reservation will be given a full credit in the form of a same value gift certificate on a future tour with us within one full year. We will make our best effort to sell your seats and give you a full refund, however this is not always possible at the last minute. If weather forces cancellation before departure you will receive a full refund. If weather interrupts or cancels a tour after departure we will make every effort to reschedule your trip or provide you with a tour voucher good for one year. .

What type of clothing do you recommend for this tour?

We recommend comfortable clothing, shorts/t-shirts in the warmer summer months and light jackets or sweaters during the cooler winter season. Sunglasses, hats, sunscreen and soft-soled shoes are also recommended. Passengers will be asked to remove shoes with any type of heel or sole that could damage the vessel.

Will I get motion sick on this tour?

This is not the type of boat that would cause motion sickness. We have hosted many passengers who have a tendency for motion sickness on this tour and it has never been a problem. We stay within the calm waters of the bay during the tour.

Will I get wet on this tour?

This tour is generally very dry and you will only get an occasional light spray of water if we have windy conditions. Heavy wind conditions will produce a wetter ride, however your captain will let you know if these conditions are present before departing the dock.
