Xel Ha Speedboat Tour

If you are going to visit Xel Ha park you might be interested to hear about this optional activity you can participate in. This is the Xel Ha speedboat tour that just might be the adrenaline pumping activity you are looking for while on vacation!

Imagine taking off on a boat that has so much power you can push though the water and go at speeds of 90 kmh/56 mph. We thought that this was going to be a little nauseating (seasick) in the waves but it was not. It was pure power and you don’t feel the waves, the boat is in control. You just have to hold and enjoy the ride!

This experience will take you speeding across the ocean and doing 360 degree turns. There is also what they call “immersion”. This is where they have the front of the boat  go down into the water and a gush of water rushes over the boat and you. There is so much water it practically fills the boat, but don’t worry, the boat is designed to drain the water out so you can do it all over again!

What is involved with this tour

The dock for the Adenalina boat is near the ocean entrance to Xel Ha water park. Here you will meet at your reserved time and get a safety briefing. After leaving things in a locker here, you will take off in the boat for the open ocean.

You will experience the speed, control and power of the Adenalina speedboat. The two captains that take you out will perform turns and the immersion technique.

The total time for this tour is about 30 minutes.

Two captains will take you out. There is space for 35 persons on the boat. There are timed spaces during the day that the speedboat goes out, so it is important to reserve.
