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 our offshore circuit. Feel the grace and pace of these racing thoroughbreds.

Your experience will begin in Southampton with a safety briefing. You will then be provided with 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 feel what it's like to be flying across the waves.

This unique experience includes a demonstration of wave jumping, high speed cornering, racing lines and starts. Then you have 2 laps behind the wheel on our circuit to put it to the test.
