Had a great ride good fun of course we got wet sadly the photos were not the greatest as the camera had a drop on the lense so that was a waste of money but the ride was great

Walking up to the harbour I felt nervous and freaked out with what I was just about to do. After colleagues convincing me I was not going to fall out of the boat I place my wet suit on and sat in the middle back section thinking I will get the least amount of water on me and not get thrown into the ocean! Once we were off and the stunts started I enjoyed myself. Apart from the cold water drenching me like a bucket of water thrown at my face, it was an amazing experience. My heart was racing, my eyeliner was all over my face but it made my afternoon and we couldn’t stop laughing. Train trip home was wet but I got home and told everyone about it. An experience that everyone should do and I highly recommend it.

The Jet boat ride was amazing. Different form others I have done in the past. Our group wondered why the crew were so insistent on us taking off our shoes for the ride. Now I know why- after a few big spins we were soaked. It was a lot of fun. Recommended for those who don’t mind a bit of water and a lot of thrill!

Great for scenery for the adults and thrills for the kids. Good fun!
