My family and I loved the speedboat ride, but we own a 20 ft. Chaparral with 255 HP motor. We ALL thought we would be going a little faster than almost 40mph. All of us still had fun and enjoyed it. Thank you very much for the ride. (Just a suggestion) instead of sitting where you want, why not seat guest according to their weight.

Guide was horrible
Alicia_S
, Jun 2022
The boat ride was nice but the guide was talking to my son crazy yelling acting like he is his parent. Instead of speaking to me and his dad. I do not respect people like that. He owes me an apology and I certainly did not tip him. Maybe he should be in a new line of work if he is going to go yelling at children in front of the whole boat making a scene. Did that make you feel like a big man?

We arrived when told to but we could not find parking for our truck so finally my husband dropped me off I ran around asking where it was among many other vendors the first one sent me the wrong way. I never saw a sign. Once I found them it was to late for my husband to make it there before they left. So we were not able to use our tickets we paid for

Thank you for choosing us and for your review. Sorry to hear that you and your husband were not able to ride. We normally try to help our customers if advise they are coming late. We do have to save your seats, and if you don't arrive, that seats go out empty, reason why we can't offer another tour after the fact, but if we have an available seat on next tour we will always offer it. We hope to welcome you back aboard in a near future.

The part we liked most is when the driver of the boat hit the waves going pretty fast. It made the water splash and it was much needed because it was so hot outside. But overall It was so fun and a good time. .
