Highlights
    What to Expect
    Make your way to Jetty 1 at Circular Quay, located midway between the Sydney Opera House and the ferry wharves. There are multiple departure times throughout the day. Lockers are available to store your belongings (bring a set of dry clothes for afterwards), and you'll be provided with waterproof ponchos and life jackets. Meet your captain and listen to a safety orientation before taking off for your 30-minute jet boat ride. 
    Zip through Sydney Harbour, past sights such as the Opera House, Rose Bay, the Taronga Zoo, and Luna Park. Listen to tunes on the state-of-the-art speaker system and hold on to your seats for a wild ride. The jet boat can travel up to 47 miles per hour (75 kilometers per hour) and perform tricks such as 270-degree spins, fish tails, wave riding, slides, twists, and power brake stops. 
    Head back to the quay after your 30-minute ride.

    A truly brilliant session on the jet boat, with plenty of thrills, some sightseeing and humour from our captain. We'll be back!

    We had the best day. Adam was our driver. He made it so much fun. Got absolutely soaked which was the best part. We were even lucky enough to see a sea lion. Perfect place to do a jet boat ride is on Sydney Harbour....More

    I believe there was a group of kids on our ride. I think they will allow it. You might just have to speak to them there.

    Sorry for the delayed response- I am a reviewer only. You will have to contact the company by phone to ask what cards and/vouchers they accept.
