Absolutely outstanding experience! Chris and Captain Scott were both fantastic - informative but fun at the same time. Myself, my husband and 2 teenage daughters had a blast. Especially Elly, this was her birthday treat. And Scott scared the bejeezuz out of her saying the sharks only prey on birthday girls! If we ever come back to Florida from Scotland,... More

Chris and Scott were excellent and the experience is like no other. The boats are fun, easy to operate and the team makes sure safety is a priority. My Daughter and I had a blast! Thanks for everything guys, will definitely be back again.

Weather was perfect, Scott & Chris were did a great job making our adventure safe and fun. The 14' outboard speed boat was fast and took us over a lot of area during our "2 hour cruise" around the harbor and out into the open bay.

I took a date on this adventure and we both had an absolute blast! Chris was very thorough with the safety prep. Scott was awesome leading us out onto the water. We saw dolphins, got to switch drivers, and genuinely had a great time. As someone who had already been on a boat several times before, I still had a... More

We had a great time on the speed boat tour and enjoyed the spray of salt water on our faces. Absolutely a thrilling experience. Planning to visit again soon. Don't let the hippy van deter your journey on the Gulf.

A great adventure. We saw things we could only see out on the bay. Captain Scott Simon is funny and a great tour guide. We will definitely be going back for another trip around the bay.

We went on the Speedboat Adventure Tour 11am this morning and I saw no earthly reason not to sit down with a glass of wine and write my review. From minute one, the guys who run the tours make you feel very relaxed and part of the team. After a little bit of paperwork and a short briefing you're straight... More
