If you are looking for some excitement then look no further. Speed Boat Adventures are great fun. Your guide will lead you around the bay to ensure you don't run into the shallows but it's pretty much full throttle all the - with the obvious exception of the no wake zones. We had great fun and we'll be sure to... More

I can't wait to do it again. Both guys who helped us were super nice. The Captain who took us out told us a lot of interesting facts about St. Pete and it's history. The boats were so much fun. Whole trip was about a hour and a half, I so wish we could have stayed out there all day.... More

This was sooooo much fun! It was so worth the money. I would definitely do this again. I think the whole tour including the safety briefing ran about 2 1/2 hours maybe. This is a must do!

Looking for something fun to do when I had family in town that would be a memorable time for the kids. We had two adults and two kids (8 and 12) so we split up with one adult (as driver) and one of the kids each. They do a great job of explaining everything and simplifying things so you really...

What a great time! Went this morning and had the best time ever. Wife let me drive the whole time. They guys who run this are the best. Even recommended a great place for lunch and gave us a coupon for a free drink. We will be doing this every time we come down for vacation.

This was such a fun experience with my dad who lives across the country. I purchased a Groupon which made it super affordable, and with both of us driving, laughing, and enjoying the sunshine, it made this the perfect Christmas gift!

Booked in advance based in reviews, what a great decision. A little difficult to find as the "office" is a vw campervan in a car park, but the guys are great. Fun, informative briefing then 1.5 hrs in the water. Slow at first to get out of the marina and get used to the boat controls (which are easy), then... More
