I gave it to my husband as a wedding anniversary gift and he just loved it!! There aren't so many places around that you can drive you own boat! And that was an unique experience! Besides, the guide was so nice and helpful! I strongly recommend this tour!!

This was our very first speed boat rental and Speed Boat Adventures make it great. From the very beginning, the team made us feel welcomed. Everything was explained clearly and we felt very safe and of the equipment was in great shape. Jackson, our guide showed us all of the highlights with a local flair. He was a terrific guide. We can't wait to go back to St. Pete and rent again. Great job guys.
