Powerboat Adventures, Nassau, Bahamas

Powerboat Adventures, Nassau, BahamasIf you have a need for speed, here’s your opportunity to experience the fast-paced world of powerboat racing. There are two companies operating out of Nassau. Island World Adventures and Thriller Powerboat Tours, both can more than fulfill your need for thrills and speed.

Island World Adventures, 242-363-3333, offers day-trips to the Exumas – definitely not your ordinary excursion. If you have a need for speed and a taste for adventure, this is a not-to-be-missed experience. Some of the islands are uninhabited. Authentic Bahamian cuisine is served, and you will experience the thrills of a high-speed chase across the crystal waters between the islands. If you have a day to spare, take my advice and book this day-trip; you won’t regret it. The adventure begins in Nassau in the early morning – you need to be at the dock by 8:30 am.

Thriller Powerboat Tours, 242-363-4685, will take you anywhere in the Bahamas, but their main clam to fame is the local rides they offer around Paradise Island and along Cable Beach. The boats, reminiscent of the cigarette boats made famous by such television shows as Miami Vice, cut through the waters off Nassau at speeds in excess of 45 miles per hour. It’s all a great thrill, but not suitable for small children, people with heart conditions, or pregnant women.
