Had a great late morning trip with Capt Scott leading a pack of 3 speeding boats around the canals and intercoastal waterway. Saw plenty of frolicking natives on the water but only a fleeing glimpse of a dolphin. Worth doing any day.

My wife and I have done plenty of attractions, many were great, but this one takes the cake. Driving your own speed boat and ripping through the water is too much fun to pass up, not to mention the excellent tour as well. This is a no brainier. The team is great, the cost is great for what you get,... More

After searching for something fun to do on our last day in Tampa found the speed boat adventure online. We had a great time. A storm popped up while we were out and it was a bit rough to navigate through but Captain Scott found us some sunny skies and some nice spots to enjoy. We had a great time... More

Absolutely fantastic.....Chris and Captain Scott were amazing. We were not sure what to expect but the boats are fast,safe and Captain Scott never takes his eyes off you...He stops at various points to give you fantastic local information but not too much....I can't recommend this enough...thanks guys we will be back

The guys were great with safety and instruction. We were fortunate to enjoy mother and baby dolphins playing right under our noses. So cool! Our 11 and 8 year old really enjoyed it. Easy to drive, just wish I had been a little bit more adventurous with the S turns, I was a little too careful at first, but started... More

My son and I were visiting st pete for a couple of days to see the red sox play the rays. I was looking for something to do during the day as these were night games and stumbled across the speed boat adventures ad. I thought this might be fun because my son had never been on a speed boat... More

This was so much fun my wife and I will be doing it again next year. The crew really enjoyed what they do so for me that was already a good sign. I never write reviews but these guys deserved a very good review. We have done a lot of things on this trip but by far this was the... More

We drove from Orlando to St. Pete to take this tour because we wanted to do something different. Prior to getting in the speedboats, we received a brief, but very thorough, safety talk on how the boats worked and navigating the waterways. Our guide, Capt. Tony, answered any questions we had. During the tour, he basically kept a watchful eye... More

Coolest adventure ever! The people who operate Speed Boat Adventures are so chill! Before I arrived in Florida, the person who I was in contact with (Chris) was very accommodating. My friend and I planned on going on this adventure on the same day that I landed in Florida and I was afraid my flight was going to get delayed.... More

If you're thinking of booking any excursions during your holiday, make sure this is top of your list! Both Chris and Capt Tony were very welcoming (despite us arriving a bit late due to traffic), they went through a short but concise briefing before the 'FUN' commenced! There were four of us, my wife, teenage daughter, young son and myself.... More
