What a wonderful experience
02 June 2015
What a pleasure it was to ride the ocean in a Honda powerboat - it truly was an experience and one I won't forget in a hurry. The quay that the setup is in and the Waterfront pub was a good place to wait in anticipation of the adventure (no idea what food or drinks were like). The experience itself was a full hour although around 20 minutes are dedicated to getting out onto more open water. The boat itself was great with racing pedigree and the Saber powersports driver was friendly and informative. Definitely a weather dependent experience and we were lucky - no rain and not too much wind so the water wasn't too rough. All round a very enjoyable experience and one I would love to have again.

They are still smiling!!

Bought this as 50th gift for my husband, my son shared the experience with him. They had the time of their lives, and loved every second. I sat bored and jealous wishing I was doing it instead of my son, ( bad mother). Not for the faint hearted or if you have a dodgy back as there is a lot of banging up and down. if you get the chance, Just go for it, 9 months on and they still laugh and smile when they talk about this great experience. The recipients of this gift will love you forever and think you are really cool

I bought the Offshore Powerboat Taster in Southampton for my husbands birthday and went along with him as well. We both had a fantastic time especially my husband who likes a bit of an adrenalin rush. You couldnt help but have a constant grin on your face when the boat was going fast. The guy who took us out was great as well talkative and answered any questions we had.
