Here’s some info from our trip aboard Dolphin Racer last week:

We’ve seen many-a-dolphin-boat pass by St Pete Beach this summer on their daily trips. With so many different boats, which one was best for us? Having worked at SeaWorld, Amy’s bar is high, so I couldn’t let this adventure go sideways. Fortunately, upon researching, the decision was easy once I found Dolphin Racer Speedboat! Their reviews are fantastic on Google, TripAdvisor & Yelp (below). They even offer a guarantee that you’ll see dolphin surfing or your next trip is free. They offer sodas & water (small charge), boat has a restroom and Colt said it ‘really looks like a speedboat’. #DecisionMade
Our captain & navigator were awesome, working hard to ensure we saw dolphin wake surf. As a boater myself, I appreciated their skills in keeping us & other boaters safe. I mean they don’t know what obstacles will be present when the dolphins show up. Even noting on one occasion that the dolphin were too close to the no wake area, so they continued searching until finding plenty in a safer spot.
We also got a kick out of their banter back and forth, mixing in humor during the lulls. We basically had Chandler & Ross (#Friends) taking us through the waterways. They’ve certainly found their calling and easily earned a tip from us! I wanted their job after the trip. (over the next 72 hours, follow our ‘stories’ for some videos of our trip 🐬)

My Tips for the Dolphin Racer Speedboat

  1. Arrive 20+ min early for a seat near stern (back) of the boat for best viewing.
  2. Book online 24-48 hrs ahead of time to ensure you have a seat.
  3. If you aren’t near the back, once dolphin are spotted, simply rotate along back railing.
  4. Bring a towel for your seat in case it’s toasty.
  5. Bring a hat and/or sunscreen.

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
