What You Can Expect

St Petersburg Speedboat Adventure

Speed Boat Adventure

This Tampa Bay speedboat adventure begins with a routine safety orientation on the basics of boating and the rules of the water. There’s no previous experience necessary, so just listen and learn. It will be easy, though, like driving a go-kart on the water.

With that out of the way, it’s time to have some fun in what’s known as the Tampa Triangle, which runs from Fort DeSoto to Egmont Key and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

Hop in an F-13 mini speedboat and put that throttle down — carefully, of course. The guide will provide an introduction to the beautiful Florida coastline while traveling past islands, national wildlife refuges and the historic Fort De Soto Park, which covers over 1,000 acres (405 hectares) on five interconnected islands, or keys. Make several stops along the way at various points of interest.

Check out the stunning Florida coastline and look for pods of dolphins, manatees, gopher tortoises, sea birds and other wildlife swimming below or gliding down and around from above. Watch out for a 15-foot (4.5 meters) hammerhead shark the locals call Old Hitler. He has a mouth full of hooks because nobody can catch him.

Switch up the drivers during the stops, and continue your thrilling adventure!

LOVED IT!!! Captain Tony is the best!! We saw lots of dolphins, the million dollar yacht that sank recently, gorgeous homes, the fastest speedboat in the county, and just enjoyed the speed and fun. This trip was for my 15 year-old granddaughter's birthday - she had a wonderful time!!! Will definitely go back!!!

The speedboat tour was awesome and relaxing. My nephew and I had a great time enjoying the waters of St. Petersburg and the boat guide taught us newbies about the fun of boating. Their staff were professional and knowledgeable about the area and boat safety. Will do it again in the future visit!!!

AWESOME!!! I purchased this tour for my husband and 8 year old son. They came back beaming with excitement, said they caught some really good speed out on the ocean, got so close to the dolphins they could almost touch them, tour guide was super knowledgeable, and showed them lots of cool stuff about the area. We stayed in Orlando and visited theme parks, and this was still my sons favorite part of our trip.

Brilliant fun. Captain Tony was very enthusiastic and informative. From start to finish you received informative information and felt very safe. They were thorough but kept it fun in the safety briefing and Tony was extremely professional out on the water. The boats were easy to operate and fun to drive. Would highly recommend for a fun and different trip.
