What a blast! We laughed the whole time zipping through the water! Totally worth the money - you won't regret it! Boats are roomy, and simple to drive. Instructions before the tour are simple and easy to follow. Beautiful day on the water - you've got to try it!

We covered 17 miles on the water and got to see things you wouldn't see on your own without a captain guide. Driving the boats is a hoot once you get used to them. They take good care of you in terms of safety. I am glad I went. Would easily recommend this to other visitors.

We booked this online to make sure that we could get in on the next day. Had a bit of a hard time finding it so when you are looking go all the way down to Pass-a-Grill Marina and they are right there. We had Nathan as our guide and he was absolutely wonderful with having us follow him around... More

My wife and I are first timers at speed boating, but we had a great time and got the hang of it right away. We had a private session (no one else booked) and had a great time seeing the sights and drifting around the bays at high speeds. We never felt unsafe, and the level of trust the guide... More

We had never done this before but Captain Chris was very easy to understand and kept in touch via pa system on boats, it was so much fun and not expensive considering the amount of time you are out on the water - fabulous can't wait to do again next year.
