After moving to the Tampa bay area I have done lots of great things but this has to be the best. My girlfriend and I did this a couple of months ago and the staff (sorry i've forgotten names) were friendly, patient and explained everything well so we understood what to do and could focus on fun. We saw some... More

Wow what a great time we all had ! I was a bit apprehensive to start with as I thought my hubby might go too fast, but after a few moments I was wanting him too go even faster & faster. Captain Tony was an excellent guide . We saw lots of wildlife & dolphins. Planning to return next year... More

Only one word needed for this experience...AWESOME! A great way to experience the water and and wildlife. Be your own captain! Safe and fun. Captain Tony's enthusiasm is contagious and Chris's overview is professional and easy to understand. Don't miss out on this great experience. We are planning to return and refer to our land bound friends. Thanks again Speed... More

My brother and I had a blast! Captain Scott was affable, informative and entertaining and just a pleasure to deal with. The boat ride was fun, fast and never did I question the safety aspect of the ride. It was a beautiful, Sunny September day and the scenery was simply stunning. We glimpsed a few dolphins along the way along... More

As the description says, you get to drive your own boat. We were a bit apprehensive because neither of us had ever driven any kind of boat (unless you count a canoe) but we were put completely at ease both by the brief explanation prior to climbing aboard and during the ride. Our leader/Captain was Captain Tony and he was... More

Captain Chris and Captain Tony make this a fun and safe experience for novices as well as those experienced with speed boats. The scenery and wild life were beautiful. This was my husband and my first time driving a speedboat. We both had fun and plan to go back again.

My husband and I went on an adventure with Captain Tony. We had a great time and saw dolphins, manatees, and a ray jumping out of the water! We wished it was a bit longer for the price, but we had a great time. Chris was helpful in booking our trip and was thorough with the pre-trip safety. Will definitely... More

Can you believe they let me drive a speedboat?!?! What a great time I had cruising and racing through the water. Captain Chris was energetic, confident and fun. He made the whole experience even more exhilarating. There is nothing like the feel of fresh air as it rushes past when you're at the wheel of the boat. I had an... More

We had a great time on the speed boat adventure tour. Captain Tony was excellent, really friendly guy. We both took a turn at driving the boat and got some great photos of videos and learned lots about the local area. We would do this again when we are next on vacation here.

We last went on this in Dec 2011... My hubby and I had a date day and decided this would be fun to do again rather than go to the hassle of renting a speedboat. Captain Scott was great and very friendly and really made it enjoyable! We also appreciated that when we called to book they accommodated the time-slot... More
