These guys go far far beyond expectation to provide a good experience for everyone involved. Had an amazing time and lots of it to speed around At full throttle, which was consistently encouraged. A bargain at twice the price and would definitely go again. Massive thanks.

My husband, parents, and I decided to do this to celebrate my 30th birthday while on vacation in Florida and I am so glad we did. Chris and Captain Scott made us all feel very comfortable with the experience since none of us have much (if any) boating experience. The tour itself was really fun and exciting. Captain Scott made... More

Nice crew, quick easy setup, life west on, last commands and then off it goes! Pretty awesome to go full throttle and jump over those waves with those speedboats! I could have gone on for ever! Tremendous fun for all of us!

Our family of four (two teens and two adults) had a great time on this tour. The guys were funny and experienced and focused on safety as well as fun, which put my mind at ease. We got some great information and stories about the area and even got to see a dolphin. Even though we had a 9 am... More

We went on this based on Trip Advisor reviews. This was a great time. Captain Scott made it enjoyable and gave personal attention to every boat. There was only two boats in our group so it was really personable. The majority of the time you are driving fast. It isn't where you get into a speed boat and putt around... More

We live in St Pete and wanted to do something fun and different while our kids (5 & 8) are on spring break. This totally hit the spot. The kids absolutely loved it and learned quite a bit along the way - about boating, sea life and Tampa Bay. Owner and Captain were exceptional. Wish I would have found these... More
