Speedboat rides

My family and I are currently vacationing in Sanibel. My 17 year old daughter is interested in a high speed boat ride, not necessarily in the gulf. Looked into the Thriller, and it's a possibility, but looking more to just ride not really dolphin spotting. Possibly a smaller boat. Anyone know of anyone who can help hook us up?

Ask on the Fort Myers Beach forum, I think that would be your best bet. The Thriller is the only option on Sanibel and Captiva and Fort Myers Beach would be the closest place to find one.

My 7 year old son (along with another man on the boat) fell asleep on the Sanibel Thriller. While I would still highly recommend this ride, I WOULD NOT if you are actually looking for a "thrill" :)

Ok yes I agree with HP the thriller is restricted to a certain speed which to some may be ..well...not so thrilling.

Yolo in Captiva has Banana Boat rides, parasailing, watercraft rental for the thrill crowd.
