On our 6th day in the Clearwater Beach area we decided to try this 2 hour long activity. Fun can not begin to describe the adventure. The boats are 13 foot 2-3 seaters with 40 mph motors, plenty fast and plenty of room for a couple and child. From the initial slow canal trip by beautiful homes, you soon enter the Gulf and the open water. Following your guide and other boats, you get a real sense of the beauty of the land/sea combination and the many sights available. Along the way we were entertained by a family of Dolphins, and the guide had us all shut down to enjoy some viewing and picture taking. The company provides an initial safety briefing and at all times keep watch on you and your boat for any trouble. It was safe, fun and entertaining. Our next visit will include this activity more than once! Just a word of caution; when crossing the wake of a LARGE boat going the opposite direction, you might want to slow it down a bit. My wife is still recuperating from the butt bruise after landing hard crossing the wake at full throttle (but, she loved it still!)

It was great and we took our 16month old son he sat between us. He was going crazy because it was his nap time but once we got going he loved it to. Would defiantly do this again

This was our second trip with Speed Boats adventures and once again Chris and Captain Tony didn't disappoint. From Chris' warm welcome to Tony's professional and knowledgable guide the whole trip was just fantastic and certainly a highlight of our holiday. We got to see manatees and several dolphins during our trip and the blast in the Gulf was awesome
Our two teenage daughters loved every minute too and can't wait to come back for a third visit!
