When I went to Cyprus for a holiday I was treated to speed boat ride with my boyfriend and his family. We went to Paphos harbour for our ride.
I was so excited as I have never been on a speedboat before and have always wanted to. We were all given life jackets (these were not very well kept and ill fitting which made me feel unsafe). The boat itself was well kept and the driver reassured us that we would have a lovely time and that we shouldn't worry!
When driving out of the harbour we went nice and slow, it was wonderful feeling the small breeze blowing through your hair. I was right at the front of the boat so kept getting gently splashed with sea water. When we hit the open water the adrenaline really kicked in. The speedboat grow increasingly faster as we were tossed about amongst the waves, I was getting soaked and loving it! The driver obviously knew what he was doing and drove the speedboat expertly over the open water.
I was given an extra treat when the driver asked if I wanted to have a go at controlling the speed boat. At first I was anxious and went very slowly but the driver insisted that I revved the engine and we speed off over the waves, what a thrill!
I would recommend this to any adult or older child as it was fun, exhilarating and was very good value for money.
