Screamin' Eagle Jet Boat
Like a roller coaster ride in the water, this 30-foot bright yel-
low jet boat is powered by twin 350 hp turbo-charged en-
gines. Built in Australia, it can move fast (up to 46 mph),
stop within a boat length and perform 180- and 270-degree
turns on a dime. Powerful water jets, not propellers, allow
for the speed and maneuverability. The Eagle leaves from
the dock at Havensight Mall and heads to Hassel Island,
Gregorie East Channel, Lundberg Bay and Frenchtown. Ex-
pect to get wet and to laugh a lot. The trip lasts 40 minutes.
Children must be over 3½ feet tall. Adults fee is $39, chil-
dren pay $35. Contact: Atlantis Adventures , Havensight

The 18-hole golf course that opened at Mahogany
Run in December 1980 may not be the most chal-
lenging or prestigious, but it could be among the
most beautiful courses anywhere. Set mid-island,
the course takes full advantage of the rolling terrain, valleys
and trees. Magnificently landscaped and constantly mani-
cured, the greens are near-perfect. Designed by Tom and
George Fazio, who have designed several courses on the
mainland, it has a variety of holes - ocean-front, lake-front
and up and down hill. The course's challenging holes are laid
out on 6,525 yards of lush green turf and par is 70. The cele-
brated 14th hole is perched on a cliff jutting out over the At-
lantic Ocean. There is a pro shop; clubs and shoes can be
rented. Call two days in advance for tee times.
Fees vary with season and the number of holes played.
There is twilight golf as well. The course opens at 7 am.
(800) 253-7103 for information or (703) 777-6006 ext. 1 for
tee times.
