  • This ride is full of fun and Adventure but prepare to get wet. You ride the boat at a high speed out into the bay.  more »
  • This is a rocking good time-literally! The boat takes you out on the bay at a high speed and you "rock" to upbeat rock style music. You will get wet so be ready for that. We enjoyed our trip on the Be...  more »
  • Quick ride on a speed boat to cool off and see the coastline from the water. Be prepared to get very wet or ask where to sit if you prefer not to. The staff was entertaining.  more »

  • EXTREMELY FUN!!! Boat staff and captain were very accommodating; enthusiastic and super friendly! Music is played during the ride and everyone we rode with seemed to be having a great time! I suggest taking the ride at sunset if you can, it makes for a very beautiful and nice boat ride....and yes you will get wet so be prepared!
  • Waste of time and money. Boat was loaded and officially left the dock at 12:05, returned and walked off the boat at 12:22...that is only a 17 minutes for something that is advertised as a 25 minute thrill ride. Doesn't seem so bad until you figure in about 2 minutes of that going out and 5 minutes at very low speeds waiting to dock. This attraction is not what they advertise and is very mundane and disappointing. Save your money as there are several other attractions around Galveston that are cheaper, offer more excitement and give you what they advertise.
  • Not bad not much fun for the money u pay. Kids was not interested
  • I have been on this speedboat during the day when you get soaked & recently at night for the fireworks cruise (month of July only). Both were extremely fun & the staff is great!! Tickets are $25 for the night cruise & it is TOTALLY worth it!! You are on the water for just about a full hour sitting in the harbor to watch the show. Kid, family friendly!
  • We went on drizzly day and only about 15 passengers on the boat. The girls stuck true to their dance routine while the music played and dodging pooping seagulls which looked hard. It was fun for a while but towards the end of the ride it was just riding in fast boat. On the plus side since I was soaking wet I was able to wipe of the the seagull poop from earlier. I think you should go on a packed boat. The energy from the crowd would probably make it more fun.
