$64 for a Two-Hour Speedboat Adventure Tour for Two ($129.80 Value)

After donning their life jackets and undergoing instruction covering boating basics, rules of the water, and tour hand signals, tour takers grab the wheel of a 13-foot mini speedboat equipped with Coast Guard–approved safety equipment and wait for effects of sassy, windblown hair to kick in. During the two-hour tour, participants speed along a 15-mile route around the waterways of Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg past sites such as national wildlife refuges, Fort De Soto Park, and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. A professionally trained guide ensures boaters remain safe and provides witty, in-depth narration regarding the area’s wildlife and history through radio communications. See the schedule for tour times. Participants should arrive 20–30 minutes before departure.

Tampa Speed Boat Adventures

Turning the traditional boating tour on its head, Tampa Speed Boat Adventures encourages visitors to don the captain’s hat as they pilot their own sightseeing experiences. From a base in St. Petersburg, seasoned instructors teach tour takers the essentials of operating one of the company’s eco-friendly, 13-foot mini speedboats as they cover topics such as boating basics, rules of the water, and at what speed time begins to flow in reverse. Once participants are confident in their training and have donned their life jackets, they snuggle into their vessel and take off on a 15-mile tour of the waterways of Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg. One of the company’s quick-witted, knowledgeable guides joins boaters in an adjacent watercraft on the two-hour sojourn, broadcasting commentary about the area’s history through the boat’s radio-communication system. As speedboats wend past jaw-dropping sites such as national wildlife refuges and Fort De Soto Park, passengers can keep their eyes peeled for passing seabirds and the mansions that famous dolphins call home.
