Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After meeting your jet boat captain at Circular Quay and receiving a safety orientation, life jacket and waterproof poncho, step on board your boat for a thrilling 30-minute ride.

Your captain takes the jet boat zooming across most parts of Sydney Harbour at speeds of up to 47 miles per hour (75 km/hour). Hang on as your boat fish tails, does 270-degree spins, and skids into power brake stops that splash water into the air. You can expect to get wet. Waterproof gear is provided and lockers can be used to store your belongings during your ride.

Occasionally, your boat slows down at times for good views of sights including Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison, the Australian Navy fleet, Rose Bay, Goat Island, Taronga Zoo, the Prime Minister's Sydney residence and more.

This was a totally fun tour and experience getting soaked, splashed and going at high speeds in the Sydney Harbour. This I recommend, especially on a hot day in Sydney! Just remember you will get wet big time, but they provide a red poncho and that helps you from being totally soaked. I loved it big time!
