Myself, my wife and our 7 year old son shared a boat and what a laugh we had. Was a little apprehensive at first as never driven a boat before but owner Chris and Capt. Scott soon fill you with confidence. When Scott yells ‘Open it up!” that first time, it’s a real thrill. Couldn’t wipe the smiles off our... More

I had a great time with my dad and my 11 yr old cousin. Captain Scott explained everything really well and made sure I was comfortable driving the boat. And of course the scenery was beautiful. I would love to come back

Had a friend come for a visit from Las Vegas and was looking for something special to do. Sooo happy I found this! We both had the best time. I was nervous about "driving" the speedboat, but it was super easy, super safe, and most of all super fun. We couldn't stop laughing. The owner Chris was a great guy... More

Felt the need to leave a review for these guys as me and my husband had so much fun on our recent visit. I bought this experience as a birthday present whilst we were on our honeymoon and we both agree that it did not disappoint! The boats are easy to manage and our Captain, Scott, navigated us around St.... More

Brilliant end to our USA holiday. Saw St Petes from the water with Capt. Scott leading the way. Excellent, excellent, we all loved it especially my boys who both got to drive!

I came to St. Pete Beach for a wedding and Speed Boat Adventures was one of our bachelor party activities. Captain Scott and the team was incredibly accommodating with our timeline and flexible with having the number of boats we needed ready to go. They were professional, rather funny, and made the trip out really enjoyable. It gets a bit... More

My husband and I had a blast!! Only us and another family followed the guide into the gulf. I was not expecting the fast ride on the waves of the gulf water!! I laughed the whole way! My cell phone went missing in the boat (even after being warned by the guide to hold onto it) and the guide took... More

My 16 year old son and I had a blast today on the water. Loved the ride and the information Scott shared. I would definitely come back with extended family and do this again. Thank you!!!

Fun activity to do out in the water. Easy to navigate and can switch drivers in the middle of the trip. Once you realize you will not tip over going around bends at high speed, it was great! Do wish we had seen more marine life.

My wife and I had a great time on the tour. When they say speed boating tour, they mean "Speed" boating! It was great! Be prepared to crank up and move from location to location. Our guide, Scott, was knowledgeable and fun. This was a highlight of our vacation.
