I booked this as a surprise for my boyfriend expecting it to be a slow pace with maybe some spurts of speed. Well am I glad I was wrong! It had some great fun facts and a few slow spots but for the majority of the ride we were having a ball going full speed!!! It was a bout an hour and a half but so worth it!! Never seen anything like this and will definitely be back!!!

This Speedboat tour far exceeded our expectations! The operators were very helpful and encouraging for a new driver. The owner is so nice and friendly and goes over all of the safety rules and answers any questions you have. He helps you get settled in the boats and pushes you off the wharf so no maneuvering to do! The boats were very easy to handle and very stable. We went slow at first which gave us lots of time to get a "feel" for the boat and once we were out of the "no wake zones" we went top speed and it was so much fun! I was concerned that I might be really scared on this tour but no these boats are really stable so it was so much fun! Our guide was excellent and he communicated with you through a speaker on your boat. He keeps a good eye on all the boats in our group. We were out for almost 2 hours. I would say about 60% of the time we were doing top speed so it was really fun! We saw Dolphins about 3 times and our guide would tell us neat stories and historical facts about some of the islands and buildings we were passing by. Overall this tour was 10/10 for us!! We will definitely be doing this tour again when we visit the area and I highly recommend this to all my anyone. *There is construction going on in the area and it says the road is closed but just drive through it to get to the Speedboat building.
