Experience the unique thrill of a high speed tour of the Solent in a genuine offshore powerboat. Hold on tight as your highly experienced instructor takes the boat to the limit completing an offshore circuit. Feel the grace and pace of these racing thoroughbreds. This is a pure adrenaline experience - you'll need to hang on for the ride of your life!
Your experience will begin in Southampton with a safety briefing. You will then be provided with an offshore racing jacket and life jacket and escorted to the waiting powerboat. After a short cruise down the river, the driver will open up the throttle and you will feel what it's like to be flying across the waves. You'll receive a demonstration of wave jumping, high speed cornering, racing lines and starts. Then you each have 2 laps behind the wheel on the circuit to put it to the test. At the end you'll get off the boat with a huge smile wanting to do it all again.
