Adrenaline Row has it all in Bradenton

Need an adrenaline rush this summer? Look no further than your own backyard, at one of the best spots to experience it all in Bradenton: Adrenaline Row.

Thrill-seekers, get ready for an action-packed, adrenaline-pumped, and adventure-filled day. It all takes place on Palma Sola Bay, or as we like to call it, Adrenaline Row. This one-mile stretch of land with water on both sides offers insanely unique opportunities to experience Florida’s West Coast waters like never before.

These extreme activities will have you wondering how you’ve ever spent the day lounging on the beach soaking up rays. Although we highly recommend that, too!

It all starts at the colorful, vintage Surfer Bus. Paddleboard or kayak the intercoastal waterways, explore mangrove tunnels, and discover Florida’s diverse ecosystems and wildlife. Located at the main entrance to the State Park habitat, first-time paddlers and enthusiasts alike can easily navigate the calm waterways and paddle through Robinson Preserve. Don’t be surprised to see manatees, dolphins and schools of fish swimming by.

Ready to take it up to the sky? Soar up to 20 feet in the air on a fly board. This jet propulsion pack allows you to hover, spin and dive like a dolphin. With the help of these pros, everyone gets up in the air. Top Gun Flyboards is one of the few businesses in Florida that offer this exhilarating experience.

You might have tried surfing, but what about hanging ten on a horse? The Bradenton Area is the birthplace of horsesurfing. This unique experience allows you to walk the beach with your horse before gliding through the Gulf waters. When the water is deep enough, and your guide and horse feel good, you are able to test your balancing abilities and “horsesurf.” The grand finale is a 200-yard race back to shore.

Before you think about battling your way through the amusements parks, check out the thrilling activities you can do right here in your hometown.
