What To Expect
With that out of the way, it’s time to have some fun in what’s known as the Tampa Triangle, which runs from Fort DeSoto to Egmont Key and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
Hop in an F-13 mini speedboat and put that throttle down — carefully, of course. The guide will provide an introduction to the beautiful Florida coastline while traveling past islands, national wildlife refuges and the historic St. Pete's beach, which covers over 1,000 acres (405 hectares) on five interconnected islands, or keys. Make several stops along the way at various points of interest.
Check out the stunning Florida coastline and look for pods of dolphins, manatees, gopher tortoises, sea birds and other wildlife swimming below or gliding down and around from above. Watch out for a 15-foot (4.5 meters) hammerhead shark the locals call Old Hitler. He has a mouth full of hooks because nobody can catch him.
Switch up the drivers during the stops, and continue your thrilling adventure!
