I have been on a number of jet boat rides and this was by far the best. The driver was informative, caring and always told us when he was about to do a 360° turn of which there were many!

Hi the trip is approx 30 mins so I would allow one hour. You will get wet so bring a change of clothes or race back to the ship to get changed. Swim wear is recommended
