The five of us had an outstanding time with Banana Joe’s this morning! Hagen was prompt and knowledgeable, and communication prior to our tour was outstanding. Had a blast bombing around Biscayne Bay on the jet ski’s. These things are FAST! Thought this just going to be a jet ski tour, but Hagen took on a tour of Star Island, Miami Design District and the Art District too. I would highly recommend Banana Joe’s to anyone considering a morning of adventure and getting the skinny on Miami hot spots for food, sightseeing, shopping, and entertainment.

Our experience was wonderful. Ask for Shawn. He knows all the stops and will give you a highly educated tour. Allowed for rest room breaks and the ability to take pictures. The bike shop needs at least 20 more guides such as him.. When ever I am back in Miami, he will be my go to guy!!!! Chicago bound!!!! See you again soon Miami!!!!!

really fun. Holocaust museum stop was breathless and incredible! I had no idea it was here in Miami

Best trip ever! Guide was very knowledgeable. Great way to spend the day.

Perfect fun - cool to see Miami Beach zipping around on magic wheels
