Your Experience

What to expect!

  • Arrive at Shamrock Quay, Southampton

    Based In the heart of Southampton and racing on the beautiful Solent Strait there is plenty to see and do for everyone.
    All Saber Powersports adventures begin at Shamrock Quay, a bustling yacht marina with onsite parking, restaurant, pubs and facilities. If you're looking for something else to do during your time in Southampton, take advantage of the free three hours of parking included with your experience and head into town; the West Quay shopping and dining centre is only a 30 minute walk away!

  • Sign in and Get Onboard!

    Not long now! If your heart hasn’t started pumping yet, it will soon…
    The Saber Powersports kiosk is located next to the Shamrock Quay marina office - right next to the water! Once you’ve arrived, head on over, sign in, kit up and get ready for a blast! You’re all kitted up and ready to go, you’ve had a safety briefing and you’re buzzing to get out and see what our boats can do!

  • Up the River

    We’ll take you down to the pontoon where you’ll be greeted by a fully trained and highly qualified commercial skipper. You’re in for the ride of your life! Once on board you’ll take a short ride up the picturesque River Itchen, keep an eye out for all of the cruise ships and wild life for as long as you can! You’ll soon be blasting across the Solent strait!

  • Time to Put the Throttle Down!

    Once you’re out of the channel, the skipper will put the throttle down and you’ll be skimming across the waves! In the Jet Viper you’ll experience massive thrills riding on the wake of other boats, performing crash stops, doughnuts and side slides! In the Honda you’ll take the wheel and feel the thrill of being a racing boat driver!
