Price for 1 participant

You can't beat the adrenaline rush that comes from speeding through the waves in a powerboat; the Honda Formula 4-Stroke championship is the most exciting offshore powerboat series in the world, so this superb experience will really knock your socks off! These awesome powerboats are responsive, manoeuvrable and incredibly fast, so prepare to be amazed as you tear through the water at eye-watering speeds!

You'll first receive a safety briefing and an introduction to the boat, and then you'll head out onto the water with an expert driver who will put the boat through her paces while you enjoy the ride. You'll then get tuition in how to handle the boat and will have the chance to take hold of the controls and have a go at driving yourself! Tear across the water and have a fun, exhilarating day out!

Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre your experience begins with a safety briefing and an introduction to the boat. You then get changed into official racing team kit and safety gear. Then it's onto the water. The driver will demonstrate the capabilities of the boat and you may have a go at testing your driving skills, depending on the conditions. The boats have comfortable secure seating and the experience is suitable for all adventure seekers.

We both had an awesome time. We did the longer weekday experience and the extra time was well worth it

The actual meeting point wasn't marked. It turned out to be a covered area outside a bar although the bar staff told us it was a table in the bar! But once we saw a group gathering outside all was well. Chris our leader was particularly friendly and approachable.

Magic! in spite of light rain it was a great experience travelling at that speed down Southampton water. Beats taking the ferry!!! fun sitting in the back as others tried their hand at the wheel, but really fantastic when it came my turn at the controls. Your instructor was extremely good and kept a watchful eye on us, which was essential given the speed at which we were travelling from wave top to wave top! I enjoyed it so much I shall be giving it as a birthday present to my son in law next year!
