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!

We did the Speedboat Tour in mid December. We were lucky as we were the only booking so we had Caption Scott to ourselves. It was a fantastic few hours. We were a little anxious as we don't normally do water sports of the high adrenaline order ! We had a safety meeting them meandered out of the harbor past numerous yachts...
As we left the harbor we spotted a group of dolphins, what a start. But once we got outside and put the throttle down WOW !! We felt extremely safe with Captain Scott never more than a 100 yards in front of us, who came back to us at times to fill us in on interesting facts about the bay and some of the mansions and owners in the area.
A great morning out !
