Live out your Bond dreams with this ultimate powerboat adventure day. You’ll get to start out with a ride in the insane Jet Viper powerboat with a whopping 450bhp powering through its Jet Drive propulsion system. This is used to both power and steer the vessel, allowing it to do things other boats can’t! Side slides, donuts, crash stops and sharp cornering will ensure you have the ride of your life and get thoroughly soaked in the process. After 60 minutes on the water you’ll return to base and swap over into the Honda VTEC racing boat. This is your chance to drive! With at least 10 minutes behind the wheel, you’ll learn to push the craft to its limits and enjoy more time out on the Solent and along Southampton’s coastline. Then it’s back to a warm shower, dry clothes and the presentation of your complimentary photo.
