Since 2005, White Knuckle Jetboats has been showing off water tricks and maneuvers to tourists, but still remains off the radar to many because of its Stock Island location, away from Duval Street and the historic seaport. New Zealand-style jet boats can zoom through as little as four inches of water at up to 55mph. Passengers will experience 360-degree spins, hairpin turns, and get a little too close for comfort to shoreline – adding to the adrenaline rush. The larger the group of people on the boat, the more water will be splashed around (as much as 50 gallons per second).A thrill boat ride — Photo courtesy of WhiteKnuckleThrillBoatRide.com
For those that enjoy a slower pace on the water, Sea Spis are the latest version of glass-bottom boats that allow the driver to lay face down on the eco-friendly, electric-powered watercrafts. The waters around Key West are home to a marine sanctuary, the area is part of the Florida’s Barrier Reef system containing more than 6,000 individual reefs.
The “Play All Day” option includes transportation from Key West Hotels (or cruise ships) to the Key West Harbour Yacht Club and access to all the clubs amenities such as the private beach, pool, kayak usage, lounge chairs, fitness center, and sauna. It also bundles a 30-minute jet boat ride and an eco-trip on a Sea Spi.Sea Spis — Photo courtesy of WhiteKnuckleThrillBoatRide.com
