Q:

How fast do these boats travel and are you alays in a group or can you go off on your own?

steven b.  asked on  Nov 20, 2012

A:

The boats travel approximately 25-30 mph. Since the boats are low to the water, the experience seems much faster! A typical excursion is 3or 4 customer boats with one of our staff members in his own boat; the customers follow the instructor/staff member. You would need to stay with the group for the entire experience. Thanks!

Q:

Is there an age limit on the passenger?

Kevin  asked on  Nov 20, 2012

A:

They recommend that passengers are not younger than 5 or 6 years old. In the no wake zone children should be fine, but once they leave the no wake zone, it can get bumpy which maybe too much for a small child.
