Not as high action as I thought it would be. Our kids had fun though. We all had a good time, but nothing I would be excited about for next time.

was a great experience as my boyfriend and myself love adventures. the only negative thing was that I booked the day before for 11am. Then I received an email saying that 11am is fully booked and that they rescheduled for 10am. We didn't have any plans, so it was ok. But just weird that I could book 11am even though... More

My husband and I had an absolute hoot on this ride. Great efficient operation, quick and easy to check in and get going. A great fun outing for almost any age. Ryan was out captain and he was very good. Plenty of thrills and fun. Definitely do this if you like the water and speed. Prepare to get wet, though!

Thank you for your review! As our Jetboats are located in the heart of Surfers it does make it very easy for people on a tight schedule to come down, check in and jump on the boat. Ryan is a fantastic driver and we are glad you enjoyed your time on the boat with him! We hope to see you... More

No spray jackets , the back row and the edge seat - that's the perfect recipe for a wild time! Thank you for your review and hopefully the back row hasn't deterred you from visiting us again! More

We opted to not wear the waterproof clothing company supplies as we stayed walking distance from attraction and quite happy to get changed if necessary. Family had fun getting a good soaking, laughing at eachother being collected by sea spray/spin wave on a ride that... More

Sat right at the back and got myself really wet but was wearing the raincoat provided by the company so only my hair got wet. The captain made a few 360 degree turn , it was so much fun and thrilling!
