Jet Boat Rides

By Viator, February 2011

Put a different spin on cruising and experience the wet and wild excitement of a jet-boat ride on the water. Open to the elements and hugely exhilarating, jet-boating cranks up the adrenaline to 11 for turbo-charged thrills on rivers and waterways.

Jet-boating is a highlight of some of the world’s most famous waterways. Ride the white waters of the Niagara Whirlpool, get ready for spins and slides on the Gold Coast Broadwater, or go jet-boating in the adrenaline capital of the world with white-water gorge racing in New Zealand’s South Island.

The otherwise tranquil waters of Sydney Harbour are another jet-boating favorite, with breathtaking power-brake stops, wild fishtail maneuvers and 270-degree spins putting a different twist on sightseeing in the harbor city.

Catch your breath to listen to onboard commentary, and stop on longer rides to see the sights from the water.

Prepare to get wet, even though splash gear and life jackets are provided, and check conditions regarding participants’ age, height and medical status.
