My wife and I went on the Speed Boat Adventures tour and it was great. You first impression is not so good when you see the business is run out of a VW Bus, but that impression quickly fades away.

We had such a blast coming here! It was a beautiful day and the boats were awesome. When you show up, its a small hippy van with 2 guys and a picnic table. They give a safety brief and explain the basics on how to control the boat and you are off. You drive through the canal slowly and get... More

We learned a little about the waterways and the area in general while we went for a nice boat ride. The guide was very friendly and very good at what he does.

I went here with my boyfriend and another couple. You get a speedboat for two people and you drive out with the guide leading. It's pretty fun and you get going pretty fast. We saw wild dolphins, which was awesome. You get some pretty good views of the bridge and the city too. I would definitely recommend this.

For an hour and a half you get to drive a small speed boat. This is a guided tour so it is like follow the leader. You go fast at times, slow at times. Beautiful views of expensive homes and boats.

This is must do while you are in the St Pete area. this is our second time with these folks and they are good when they take you out in the Gulf as you see the sights or Dolphin pods during the 90 minute speed boat tour Steve Lecatsas

Had such an amazing trip. Captain Scott is really informative and such a nice guy. The trip is awesome, it is one to do if you are in the area. Worth every penny. The trip lasts for about 2 hours and there are some amazing sights on the way before you head out to the gulf of mexico.

Worth every penny!!! So much fun... Laughed and screamed the entire time. Captain is awesome. The only caution I can give is the GPS does not take you accurately to their location. Call them for exact location. Take a bottle of water with you. You will see beautiful scenery and homes.❤️

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. Although the weather was a bit dicey with wind and rain, we enjoyed our tour through the St. Pete waterways although at times it... More
