Looking for something different to do, we saw this on Tripadvisor and the guys thought it would be a fun thing to do, while the ladies went to the beach. Chris and Scott are great guys.

I went here for the first time with friends for spring break and it was AWESOME!!! The instructors were kind and informative. A lot of us couldn't swim but we felt extremely safe and confidant in the instructors.

As a Tampa resident, it's nice to have things to recommend to out-of-town visitors. Speed Boat Adventures is going to the top of the list of recommendations. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. The boats were fun to drive and I liked how we didn't have to sit through a long seminar on how to drive the boats -... More

I'm so glad that I got to do this!!!! My friend and I had the best time and I haven't smiled that hard in forever. Captain Scott Simon was friendly, funny and he made the entire tour enjoyable...for the guy who said it was 'boring', you must have had a frontal lobotomy or an aneurysm. The weather was perfect, there... More

Great little tour company, don't be put off by their humble 'office', they really are professional and friendly. Safety comes first with these guys which just makes your experience that more enjoyable. Caution- when the water gets choppy the ride can get really bumpy so consider this if you are pregnant or have back problems. 2 people per boat with... More
