Thank you for your interest in Sea Racer Tours. Get ready for some family fun!
Based at Salty Sams Marina on San Carlos Island, Sea Racer Tours is a 128 passenger speed boat that takes guests on an exciting excursion of the coastline of Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island (during the day or at sunset) with three unique experiences.
1) Narrated Tour
Sea Racer crew will give you a bit of history and some interesting facts about the local shrimp fleets that fish the Gulf of Mexico. You'll then pass under the Matanza's Bridge and get an up-close look at the Fort Myers Beach Coast Guard Station and cutters stationed there. After some interesting facts about the Coast Guard, you'll get a waterfront view of the many beautiful homes and marinas along the way. After that, we head out around Bowditch Point (the northern tip of Fort Myers Beach) where the Thrill Ride begins!
2) Thrill Ride
Sea Racer is the newest and fastest speed tour boat on the beach. It's a 70 foot fiberglass and aluminum boat, custom built by Ocean Rockets and powered by two turbocharged CAT diesel engines totaling 2300 horsepower. This thing is built for speed! We will zip along Fort Myers Beach (FMB) and the Gulf of Mexico giving you the excitement and experience of being on an offshore race boat.
3) Dolphin Sightings
No other tour boat in Fort Myers Beach (FMB) gives you the excitement of a thrill ride AND up-close dolphin encounters in one. After you've traveled at speeds up to 38 miles per hour along the coast of FMB and Sanibel Island, you'll need a break to catch your breath.
This is when we slow down and look for dolphins that are usually feeding in the waters along the Sanibel Light House coast. You'll have an opportunity to take some pictures and possibly see dolphins in their natural habitat.
With some coaxing from the viewers, you may even get the captain to make a large wake behind the boat these playful creatures almost always love to jump in.
After the show, we crank up the rockin' sound track and turbo charged engines while we race back to shore with the wind in your face and thrill in the air. Once inside the slow speed zone, there's opportunity for another dolphin encounter.
Tours are one hour long unless you book a private charter for your birthday, corporate event, or other occasion. In that case you must book at least 2 hours and your tour is fully customizable.
