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.

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!

  • 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.
