Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 18, 2006
Not all cruises along Miami’s shore are quiet and leisurely meanderings past the city’s skyline. A love of being on the water attracts as many city visitors to Miami speedboat rides as it does to the more sedate yachts. While most cruises are designed to provide a relaxing outing, the Bayside Blaster’s goal is to give guests a thrilling and unforgettable experience.
The fastest boat ride in South Florida, the “Bayside Blaster” races through beautiful Biscayne Bay at an exhilarating speed of 25 miles per hour, with thrill-seeking fans of Miami speedboat rides on board. Cruising the bay at heart-racing speed is exactly what the “Blaster’s” fans have in mind.
Part of the Island Queen sightseeing fleet, the “Blaster” accommodates up to 80 passengers, most of whom call the cruise one of Miami’s most special attractions. The opportunity to combine speed on the water with a chance to view the city from offshore is unique among Miami speedboat rides. Giving guests a look at the celebrity-filled islands of Miami Beach known as “Millionaire’s Row,” the “Blaster” offers sightseers the best of the city’s skyline. Those who long for a more adventurous way to see the spectacular coastal sites seek out the “Blaster” again and again.
The “Bayside Blaster” cruises for a generous hour and a quarter. Guests can purchase refreshments on board during the cruise, an amenity not usually found on Miami speedboat rides. Cruises depart every two hours on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and evenings, offering visitors the chance to enjoy the speedy cruise in daytime sunshine, or by the city’s lights after sundown.
Patrick Young, director of sales and marketing for Island Queen Cruises, says that the Bayside Blaster is a unique experience, with a very particular clientele. “We added the Bayside Blaster cruises to our schedule when we realized that not everyone visiting the city wants a cruise to be a break from Miami’s excitement. The enthusiastic response tells us that we have brought the need for speed on the water to a new level.”
Young remarked that groups looking for an unusual outing often charter the “Blaster,” or take advantage of the group discounts available. “It’s become a special favorite of customers who have been enjoying Miami’s shoreline with Island Queen Cruises for years. Combining the best of Miami speedboat rides with the view of the city and the amenities we provide on board makes for an breathtaking and memorable experience. It’s proof again that Island Queen is able to design a cruise experience for every taste—even the most adventurous.”
