Adrenaline junkies are always looking for speed. Huge power boats provide this in abundance. In this photo they are all in a file ready for take-off. Speed boating is great fun. However, it can also be very dangerous for swimmers and sea dwelling creatures which need to surface for air. It is extremely important that great care is taken when they are driving close to swimming zones so as to avoid accidents.

Speed boats are also great fuel guzzlers so they have quite a huge negative impact on the environment.
