We had so much fun driving these speedboats. We were guided by captain Dustin and he was great! Kerry gave us our safety instructions and help us dock when we came in. He was very personable and funny! This is a must attraction if you are in the St. Pete's Beach Area. Can't wait to go back!

During a vacation week in St Pete Beach discovered self driving Speed Boat Adventures. Had a LOT of fun. Gave us a way to see the "water view" of lots of beautiful homes/boats/docks in the area as well as dolphins - tons of fun - great friendly staff - highly recommend guide Dustin.

Warm welcome by Kerry. An awesome 20 mile scenic tour of Tampa Bay by our guide Brian. Boats are clean, well maintained and, yes, fast!! Looking for something a little different? This is the ticket in the St Pete area. Would do it again.
