After rocking up to the docks and waiting around to give them a call to find out where they were.... they hadn't informed us the boat wasn't working. Then after 3 months I still haven't recieved a refund after countless emails and phone calls

Great fun day out at JetBoat Tours. I wore the overalls they provide and stayed bone dry but a little cold. The guys that run the trip are great too. Definitely recommended.

Been meaning to take the family for ages and glad that we finally did. We had a blast and even the tight turns causing some people to scream were great fun
