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.

Chris and Captain Tony were very knowledgeable regarding boat safety, rules and regulations, and the Tampa bay waters. Fun and safety were prioritized . This is a must-do activity for all St. Pete visitors. My girlfriend and I have never driven a boat and yet felt extreme safe under their guidance.
