Experience the thrill of walking on water and try one of the hottest new water sport trends with this exhilarating flyboard experience in Cairns. Learn how to balance and control your flyboard, then feel a rush of adrenaline as the high-powered water jets propel you up to 30 feet (10 meters) above the water. Choose from a 30- or 60- minute tour and master the basics or try your hand at daring tricks and turns. Best of all: there’s no experience necessary, so anyone can give it a try!
What to Expect
Make your way to Marlin Marina, located in the heart of Cairns, to meet your guide for your flyboard experience.

Begin with a safety briefing and an introduction to your equipment, then get started with your flyboarding lesson. Put on the provided wetsuit and helmet, then take a Jet Ski with your instructor over to the part of the marina where you can take flight.

Your instructor demonstrates how to handle the gear and hold yourself in the water as you prepare for the water jets to spring into action below you. Be amazed as you lift out of the water for the first time; it is an unforgettable experience. With the powerful jets, you can propel yourself up to 30 feet (10 meters) above the water’s surface.

Flyboarding is relatively easy to learn and definitely safe. Think of it like you're learning how to ride a bike; the initial learning curve can be tough, but you soon find your balance and are able to master the basic flying position. With proper instruction, most people can gain control and fly comfortably within 10 minutes.

Once you have mastered the starting position, your instructor watches carefully as you practice turns and get your balance. Your instructor stays close by throughout your experience, assisting as needed with steering, elevation control, deep-water landings, walking on water and more.

Enjoy the thrill of flying and doing tricks with the water-powered jetpack powering you through the pristine warm waters of tropical Cairns, the perfect place to learn this awesome new water sport. If you feel confident, your instructor can show you how to do advanced maneuvers such as dolphin diving, 360-degree turns, reverse bungees and more.

Friends and family can cheer you on and take photos of your flight from the raised viewing area located right next to your flight location. You get the choice of a 30-minute experience, or a 60-minute experience that offers great savings. After trying this popular new water sport, you won't want to stop.

Ripped off
