A wonderful Adrenaline Challenges Experience available in Southampton, Hampshire.
Experience what it’s like to be part of an iconic James Bond scene with this action-packed powerboating experience in Southampton. During the session, take part in two 007 style missions which involve experiencing the might of two of the UK’s fastest and most impressive powerboats. Begin with a safety briefing then get kitted out in specialist race kit to prepare for the ride ahead. First, take control of a colossal Honda powerboat and push it to its limit using The Solent as your aquatic playground, before racing against the clock on a challenging offshore racing circuit. Next, hop into the passenger seat of the mighty Jet Viper and hold on tight while the skippers pulls off donuts, spins and side slides on the open water!
Weekend dates from April to mid October. Book at least four weeks in advance (please be aware that bookings are taken up to a maximum of three months ahead).
Powerboating is a weather-dependent activity. It’s essential to call the venue for a weather check between 5pm and 7pm on the day before the experience to check weather conditions.
Lasts for around four hours, including a total of two hours on the water.

Dress warmly and bring waterproofs and a change of clothes. Bear in mind that there is a high wind-chill factor aboard the boat. Wear non-slip shoes (e.g. trainers or deck shoes). An old pair of sunglasses/ski goggles will be useful if it is windy.
