“A great time!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

What a great experience! Captain Scott, Chris and Isla were terrific! Those little boats get up to a fun but safe speed, as you follow the leader on a tour of the area. Several times we floored the throttle and enjoyed skimming off of the wakes of passing boats. If you're in the Tampa Bay Area, definitely check these guys out. Thanks again guys!

It was an anniversary gift for my husband who loves adventures.
We both loved it! The speedboats were so easy to gear and went really fast.
We were able to see dolphins up close and hear about the different bridges in the area.
Captain Scott was very informative and made sure we had a good time!
Definitively recommend this activity!

“Amazing trip”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Made this trip together with my 10 yo son. It is an amazing experience, opening the gas handle and go full speed over the water. Even we didn’t have any experience before, Chris and Captain Tony where able to give us a full speedboat experience ans see some beautifull wildlife . Besides the fun on the water, we spotted a group of at least 7 dolphins close to our boat during out private tour. When we go back to Florida, we definitely will book this trip again!

“Far exceeded expectations!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We were planning a side trip to Tampa on our Florida vacation and my girlfriend found Speed Boat Adventures on line. After some prodding, I finally relented and agreed to go on the speedboat tour. It was the best decision I (or she, rather) ever made! I was skeptical about really being allowed to captain our own boat and just how speedy they were, but there I was (after a brief safety course and operating procedures) skipping across Tampa Bay with the throttle wide open!!! It was a blast! Capt. Tony and crew were awesome, very friendly and knowledgeable about the sea life and landmarks around the bay. I try to visit Florida every other summer, and Speed Boat Adventures will absolutely be on my schedule from here on out.
