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.

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!

Hang on for a fun, wet ride in the bay. We picked a seat about 3/4 from the front of the boat not knowing what to expect. The crew were funny and entertaining and the boat ride was exhilarating but prepare to get wet! The captain turns the boat to arc the water over the boat and on to the... More

I rode this in 2011 and it was a bit more fun than this time. However the music was good and it went quite fast. I was disappointed not to get a bit splashed, i was sat at the front
