“Great Stuff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

My son and I had a great time on this two hour adventure. It went by quickly but we enjoyed every second of it. The Captain and assistant were excellent hosts and had everyone feeling at ease! The scenery can't be beat, big houses, big boats, and scenes of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge! Just the birds and dolphins were fun to watch. Thanks for the excellent day on the water!

“Great Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Chris and Scott were very friendly, good guys to deal with. Saw some cool marine life up close while on the tour, overall it was a blast, good way to spend an morning or afternoon. Wouldn't hesitate to go back for some affordable fun.

“SPEED BOAT ADVENTURES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

My son and I went on the 2-hour speed boat adventure and had a great time. The captains were very professional, friendly, and courteous. The tour was a mix of fun moving fast in a speed boat and touring the area. Our boat was clean and well-maintained, and started up without any problems. The group that went out was small enough that we got personal attention but large enough to enjoy the company of the other patrons, but each group had their own boat. I definitely recommend this experience, you are most certain to have fun.

“Our 2nd Speedboat Adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We had a great time in 2012 on our first speedboat adventure, which was so fun that we just had to return in September 2013 when we visited Florida again. We got lucky this time around and had a private tour from Capt. Scott!

Both my Girlfriend and I had great fun driving the speedboat and would certainly do it again. You could easily spend all afternoon out there having fun and touring around! You can actually cover quite a distance in the little boats.

Capt. Scott was fantastic once again, he was very informative and even managed to spot a pod of dolphins! If you are in the area or if you have access to a car and fancy a day trip, this is well worth the money and you will not be disappointed. Money well spent for a fantastic adventure. Where else can you Captain your own speedboat without any formal experience?! 10/10!

“Not for Experienced Boat Operators”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

The guys that run the attraction, the boats, the route, the safety procedures are all 1st rate ! IF you've never operated a boat and want to try it, I highly encourage you visit these guys.
But if you own and operate one as we do, it's a bit of a boring ride in a small bouncy boat.
