Wet and Wild Powerboat Adventure Day for Two
Perfect for a pair of aquatic thrill seekers, this James Bond style powerboat thrill in Southampton is as close as it gets to feeling like 007 on open water. During the session, both experience the raw power of two of the UK's most impressive powerboats under the expert guidance of a professional instructor. First, take control of a colossal Honda powerboat and open up the throttle using The Solent as your aquatic playground, before racing against the clock on a demanding offshore racing circuit. Next, both jump into the passenger seat of the mighty Jet Viper and hold on tight as your skipper pulls off donuts, spins and side slides and other moves on the open water. This is sure to be one fast and furious powerboating experience to remember!
