What to expect

Experience the adventure of a lifetime on our Speed Boat Adventure Tour! A guided and narrated tour of the St. Petersburg waterways and Tampa Bay…with a twist.

You get to drive, navigate and captain your own speedboat for the entity of the tour while following our trained guides and experience the best of both worlds – the THRILL of driving your own speedboat, and the safety of having a skilled guide introduce you to the beauty of the St. Petersburg waterways and Tampa Bay.

The witty yet historical narration is done through a radio communication system mounted in each boat. Spot dolphins, sea turtles, manatees, sea birds, and more. Fun for the whole family!

    • Age/Driver: To drive the boat alone, a person must be 18yrs old. 16 & up may drive as long as an adult is in the boat as well.

  • What to bring/ wear? Wear what you would to the beach depending on the temperature (swimsuit in the summer and a jacket in the winter). We suggest you also bring sun block, a towel for afterwards, sunglasses.
  • What if you get sea sick? Normally seasickness is caused by the slow rolling motion in the ocean. Since the speedboats move along at high speeds it normally doesn’t bother people that are prone to getting seasick.
