This was a great tour. I've done other jet boat rides and this one was faster with more extreme turns and stops. Great value for the money. Very easy to get to in the Circular Quay area. Splash jackets provided. It is a jet boat ride, so you will get a little wet.

They say you get wet, but fail to tell you just how much. You could jump in the ocean fully clothed and still not be as wet as you would get from this boat ride! Don't bother with the ponchos, they don't keep you dry at all. Wear swimmers and don't forget a towel and a change of clothes, because... More

This was well worth the money, my friend and I had a great time. Lovely views of bridge and opera house. We didn't take the ponchos as it was a really hot day but we got very wet, so I'd advise you take them up on their offer! We laughed throughout the whole trip.

I got this as a birthday gift and finally found time to go on a sunny day. I went from circular quay and even though was hoping to be seated at the back to get a full soak experience, I ended up being seated right at the front next to the driver. I don't know what the back is like... More

Awesome trip around the Harbour with some fun spins and bumps. We did the 35 minute trip and it was a great length of time for us. My 8 year old son loved it. All the staff were friendly and safety was their priority.

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighborhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to DJ's. Families can visit the Chinese Garden of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Australian National Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
