Had seen these speed boats on the water & called to book. Captain Derek explained you didn't need to have boating experience to go out. He answered all questions. It was a wonderful tour of the area - we went out into the Gulf of Mexico, right next to the Sunshine Skyway, past all the beautiful homes in the area. Saw dolphin & he stopped the boats to watch. One of the most fun afternoons spent in St Pete!

This was an amazing experience from beginning to end. Totally recommend it. You get to drive your own speedboat on full throttle for about 90 mins. It’s fantastic fun and the best bit is you get to follow a guide who occasionally stops to tell you about the area but on the whole you are speeding through the area’s waterways without getting lost! I would definitely do this again.

This is by far the most fun thing you can do. The guys are awesome and the thrill of driving your own spped baot is amazing. They take you way out in the bay and communicate via walkie-talkie. You get alot of time to throttle down - that's why it is a spped boat tour! They narrate it as you go through the no-wake zones and you get to see beautiful houses. Safety is a priority with absolute fun being a close second! Well worth it!
