What You Can Expect

Sydney Harbour Jet Boat Ride Adventure

Sydney Harbour Jet Boat Ride Adventure

Meet your jet boat captain at Darling Harbour and receive a safety orientation, life jacket and waterproof poncho as you board your boat. Hang on to the handrail as you pull out under Sydney Harbour Bridge and onto the harbor waters to the tunes of lively music that gets your heart pumping.

Shout with delight as your captain takes the jet boat to speeds of up to 47 miles per hour (75 km/hour) and performs 270-degree spins, wild fish tails and power brake stops that spray water through the air. Expect to get wet, especially towards the back of the boat. Lockers are provided to store dry clothes and other belongings during your ride.

Your captain slows down occasionally to give you a good look at the sights including Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison, the Australian Navy fleet and the Prime Minister's Sydney residence.

Amazing experience!! Don't miss it. The best jet boat ride on the harbour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2011

Awesome. Lots of fun. If you can hand a fast boat ride doing 360 degree turns then you need to do this. Good price for the amount of time you get on the boat.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2011

the blue jacket or you will get soaked and sit up the back for the best ride. Fantastic fun and spectacular views Will definately go again when in Sydney

I was told to go on this boat ride and am definitely glad I did. The jet boat part of the experience made me scream a lot, but the views of the harbour were fantastic. I booked an extra place for someone else that wanted to come along - now they will now be taking their family.

This was fantastic, definitely the highlight of our Sydney holiday. The speed and 270 degree spins were AWESOME. We all loved this so much and had so much fun we wanted to do it again, but we just didn't have enough time left in Sydney. Defiantly well worth the money.

It was fantastic. Though I wouldn't recommend for small children as the ride is rough and at times scary. Great fun for an adult though. You definitely get wet. The only CON is your hair gets spiky if you're sitting in the center of the boat or if you're sitting on the side your hair will be spiked to the side.
