“Better than the cruises for anyone who loves the outdoors.”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

Reasonably priced for just under an hour. The sights were amazing and the driver very informative. We were lucky enough to have a 'private tour' although this incurred a $9.50 per head surcharge as no one else had booked in. Driver was great In that he waited for photos to be taken before heading off onthe next leg. Awesome fun doing the 360 spins and unlike your normal jet boat ride we stayed dry. Great for those who like a bit of speed and adventure.

“Good fun but overpriced”
Reviewed September 29, 2011

It cost $199 for this 42 min. (advertised as 50mins) trip in the Jet Boat for our family . With 2 families onboard , $400 for 42mins was good business for the operator. Kids enjoyed the doughnuts, the driver was friendly and the information was interesting but I think both families thought it was overpriced. No food or extras provided.

Maybe we should advertise the trip as 26 kilometers instead of 50 minutes. I timed several runs after reading this review and all were actually over 50 minutes. It would be unusual to be less, and the quoted 42 minutes duration is a mystery. We certainly cover the same distance on every trip. I have also done a comparison on all Australian jet boat operations' fare structures, and apart from a couple of Gold Coast operators in different circumstances, we compare extremely favorably.
