Experience the thrill of driving your own speedboat through the serene waters of Tampa Bay. For the entirety of this narrated tour, you'll navigate and captain your own speedboat while following a trained and knowledgeable guide in a different boat. There is a two-way communication system mounted in each boat, so you'll be able to hear your guide throughout the tour. This speedboat adventure is a great way to see beautiful Tampa Bay from the water!
Before you start zipping through the waters of Tampa Bay on your speedboat adventure from St Petersburg, you'll have a safety orientation to review boating basics, rules of the water and hand signals. Then, hop in and experience the thrill of driving your own speedboat while your skilled guide introduces you to the beauty of the Florida coast.
Following your guide, who will provide narration through the two-way communication system, you'll pass beautiful islands that house national wildlife refuges and the historic Fort De Soto Park. You may see pods of bottlenose dolphins, manatees, gopher tortoises and numerous varieties of local birds.
There will be several stops throughout the tour at various points of interest. If you want to change drivers, you may do so at any of the brief stops.
