you get on a large Scarab boat with loud music and take a 15 minute fast turn in the channel...a local thing for the Boardwalk

Our first trip to Kemah was with my daughter and 12 year old grandson in August. My second trip was 2 weeks ago with my son, husband and 3 year old grandson. We all rode the beast and had such a wonderful time. Even the 3 year old was laughing so hard. It was a little better in Oct because... More

The ride was just awesome and you really get pretty wet. The speed gets your attention and the crew is pretty cool. The view of the shoreline is also great. Be sure not to miss this ride.

It was my husband's birthday so this is what he wanted to do. The price was reasonable, $20/person. The entire adventure lasted about 25 minutes, could have been a little longer. Overall it was fun. It gives you a little taste of what riding a speedboat is like, combined with girls dancing to fun music (could have done without the... More

The boat runs every hour on the hour (sort of). Is $20 for an adult. They warn you several times that you will get wet, maybe even dripping wet. And then they make sure everyone get wet. It was really hot, so no one really complained about the water. Boat does about 40mph, but is very smooth. Spent about a... More

Our grandson loved this. This was the last thing we did before leaving, you get soaking wet. This is a large speedboat that takes you out into the bay for a nice escape from this horrible Texas heat.

What better on a hot Texas day but to go for a ride on a boat?? Well maybe try a ride on the Boardwalk Beast, it is an upbeat ride an you will enjoy yourself. You will also get a view of the Kemah Boardwalk from the Gulf of Mexico. It was a lot of fun and I would think... More

Oh yeah, how fun was this boat trip through the Kemah Boardwalk to Galveston Bay. Plenty of fun and exciting views with the "love boat" crew...

This ride was super fun and incredibly fast. However, since it is on a wooden track it is pretty jerky. Go at night to see all of the Kemah lights!
