Offering a unique guided and narrated tour of the St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay areas, the Speed Boat Adventure Tour lets guests be the captains of their very own speed boats, allowing them to navigate themselves under the guidance of professionally trained guides. The tours include hilarious educational narration, as well as up-close views of dolphins, manatees, sea birds and more.

4. Sun block
Can we switch drivers?
Absolutely! We will stop several times during the tour and you can switch drivers if you like.
What if I have never driven a boat?
No problem! Our boats are very simple to operate and we will make sure you are fully comfortable with the operation before we leave the dock.
What if I am by myself?
If we have another single on your tour then we will pair you together and you can make a new friend (or love connection). If not then you get the boat to yourself.
