This our second time to take the speedboat adventure and it only got better. Captain Chris was just outstanding, very attentive and professional. We now live in the area and he still found ways of explaining the area in a very interesting and humorous way. For those of you on vacation it's the best time you will have.

We did the Speedboat Tour in mid December. We were lucky as we were the only booking so we had Captain Scott to ourselves. It was a fantastic few hours. We were a little anxious as we don't normally do water sports of the high adrenaline order ! We had a safety meeting then meandered out of the harbor past... More

My daughters (15 & 7) took my husband for a Father's day. We had a blast! It was thrilling enough for my daredevil husband and teenager, but not too scary for my younger daughter. We didn't want it to end!

My boyfriend and I just went on this tour yesterday with Captain Scott and we had a blast! Captain Scott was very funny & made the tour even more fun. It was well worth the money also. We definitely recommend trying it!!

DO THIS! The only thing missing from this activity was the peg leg and parrot! Seriously! Thank you Captain Scott! As Trip Advisor states, this is a #1 activity. I am here to confirm that! Your guide is Captain Scott. Captain Scott was definitely a pirate in another life! The Captain supercharges this almost 2 hour activity with history and... More

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!
