At nearly 200 feet tall, Skyviews Miami at the Bayside Marketplace is perfectly placed to offer spectacular waterside views over Biscayne Bay, Bayfront Park, and Miami’s dramatic skyline. The wheel boasts 42 private, climate-controlled gondolas set at an interior temperature of 72 degrees, making them ideal for sightseeing even on South Florida’s hottest days.

Gondolas can be rented for special events, anniversaries, birthdays, marriage proposals, business meetings, and more.
