Dear All

My daughter and I want to thank you for the thrills squeals and laughter that you have brought to us.

The jet boat ride was just the best way to wrap up our tour in Sydney.

We have had a wonderful time in your country- the guides and people that we have met have been most warm and helpful.

The driver for our ride Matt sure knew how to warm us up for the exciting stunts and the lady at the kiosk (sorry I forgot your name!!) was very vigilant in ensuring that my daughter got the life jacket of the right size and ensured that we were all briefed on the safety procedure and checked that we were properly strapped up.

Small things go a long way in reflecting one's care towards one's job and together the both of them succeeded in putting us at ease before and during the ride.

Very sorry that the tourism industry is tested so severely but I hope that you will return to work soon and with an even better version of yourselves!

Best wishes
Jacintha and Wan Yan

Best experience ever!

This is such a must do for everyone! The crew are amazing and it is such an awesome ride. I have gone on the ride with Oz jet boating 4 times and am already organising a 5th time with some more friends. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for this experience.

Definitely bring a spare pair of clothes afterwards because they never fail to leave you soaking !

It is honestly such a good way to see the city, and spend the day out with friends.

The crew are amazing, some of my friends on Saturday were a bit nervous but they made them feel at ease and laugh even before the ride started.

Now those friends want to go again! They absolutely loved it!!

Can not wait to go again! If you’re on the edge about going. This is your sign!! To go Oz Jet-boating for the best experience. Matt and his team are the best.

Took my 9 yr old son and some of his friends for a thrill ride. The staff looked after them really well and made sure they were safe. The ride was fantastic fun showcasing the beauty of Sydney Harbour while doing some great tricks. Ollie was a great driver and everyone onboard loved it. The kids are still talking about it

A great feel good experience gliding over Sydney Harbours' water at high speed, with spectacular burn outs and sudden stops, which are surprisingly smooth. Stunning views of the Bridge, Opera House and City. You may get a little wet, OK maybe soaking wet but the joy gained from this adventure will last a lot longer than it takes you to dry!

Do it, you wont regret it.

Had a really fun ride even though we got soaked to the skin which is what it is all about. Ollie our driver was excellent getting us all to participate and keeping us informed as to what turn we were doing next. Sydney harbour certainly is spectacular and we went pass all the major points of interest.

Would recommend this ride for young and old but just make sure you take a change of clothes.

What a great experience, absolutely soaked but everyone in our group of 10 came away with a big smile. You get to see the sights around the harbour and have the best time doing it. An absolute winner, staff are professional and just heed their advice for a safe fun adventure.

There were 7 of us. Staff were very helpful. The driver of our boat (Adsi I think was his name) was super friendly and as pumped as we were for a great ride which is exactly what he delivered. We all loved it and the birthday boy whom we were celebrating said he wants to do this every year! Highly recommend.
