The Speed Boat Adventures boat tour was great! It was easy to book on line, and everything was clear. They send a reminder email the day before the tour, which I love! When we arrived, we were greeted and signed in. When it was time to start, we had the safety instructions, told how to drive the boats and were off! It was a great way to spend time on the water and see the land! It was a three generation trip -- my mom and her friend, myself, and my daughter (9) and friend (10). We all thought it was great fun!

It was very fun but the conditions were pretty choppy. It was a narrated tour but the narration was limited. You should not go if you have back issues.

This was a great experience! We are locals but I wanted to do something fun with a friend on the weekend to celebrate their recent boat license. Not that’s boat license was required but this was a fun experience on the water! All the staff was super friendly & helpful. I will definitely be doing this again!

The afternoon we spent on the speedboat was exhilarating fun! Our guide was safe and provided a fast paced ride. Carey, the owner, was accommodating and the activity was fair priced.
