Organised JetBoating and helicopter ride for our twin's 18th birthday as a bit of fun to the celebrate the day. They loved both experiences but wished the helicopter ride was for longer. The driver of the JetBoat was excellent, they were suitably wet and entertained. Well worth the money.
A must do for families.

Macca was a legend, really went out of his way to make sure everyone on board felt safe and had a great time. Callie was super helpful with the booking and logistics. Awesome Experience.
The best trip I've been on for a long time it was a extralian rush it was.

Just the fun I got from doing it and the rush you got through your body and doing the helicopter was great too.
Ripped off

The boat was under powered and isn’t the same as the photos shown on the website and to finish off with a helicopter ride that barely left the ground for literally no more than 5 minutes this is a poor package deal and well over priced for what you get for your money. I wouldn’t use the site again so disappointed !!!!!!!!
Response from Host, Aug 2020
Hi Donald, thanks for your feedback...and sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. However, I am not really sure why you are critical of the vessel you were in. We were using our 'Paradise 1' boat on that day. It has plenty of power with a turbo charged 440HP engine.It is one of our main vessels and has taken over 200,000 passengers for us without complaints. Also, regarding the duration of Helicopter ride; The package you purchased included a 5 minute Heli flight. Customers are able to upgrade to 10minute or 15minute flights if they wish to take a longer flight. Again, I am sorry that we failed in satisfying you. Best regards Tony
Exciting, enjoyable and...

Exciting, enjoyable and excellent! Thrilling experience on the jet boat and helitour for my family. 4 kids aged 4 to 12 enjoyed it very much. But prepared to be wet even with their thick raincoat. We got to see the dolphins jumping over the water and kangaroos hopping into the jungle during the jetboat ride. Good customer service. They accommodated to our pick up location request. We took helicopter ride about 4.40pm. They even stayed after 5pm to send us back.

C’est un cadeau que j’ai offert à un couple d’amis partis en vacances. Mon amie appréhendait fortement la sortie en hydroglisseur, elle m’a rapporté qu’elle avait pleuré avant même que ça ne commence ! Lol ! Cependant son ressenti final est qu’elle a beaucoup ri, une pointe de peur au ventre mais c’est vite oublié ! Ce qu’ils ont apprécié aussi, c’est la visite des quartiers riches avec explications. Très intéressant ! En ce qui concerne la sortie en hélicoptère, je peux vous dire qu’elle s’en souviendra longtemps ! Pourquoi ? Il lui a demandé sa main 😱 c’était super et ils gardent tous deux des souvenirs impérissables.
