Speed boat tour. Captain friendly, yet serious about safety! Saw lots of dolphins, ride was smooth! Pointed out celebrity houses and of course the Sunshine Skyway! They usually have a Groupon which is a good deal! Will be back!

Captains were great and a lot of fun! It's very evident that they want their passengers to have the best time possible and stay safe, which we really appreciated. Dolphins were jumping with our boat and it was a wonderful time!More

Ordinarily, it is $24.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids. You can look up a Groupon and get it for much less. It's probably best to just call them to find details and check out the Groupon.

Most of our customers don't experience any motion sickness issues aboard the Dolphin Racer, but it's always a good idea to take something if you think you may have sensitivity, just to be safe :)
