What you can expect

Grab your life jacket and strap yourself in for some high-speed fun in Cairns on this 35 minute jet boat adventure that combines thrills and sightseeing in the one enjoyable experience! On this Cairns jet boating ride, you'll join the friendly and fun-spirited crew aboard 'Bad Fishy', a turbo-charged jet boat, and head out on the water to perform a range of tricks and turns such as spins, slides, power-brakes and even the occasional 360. As the music cranks up, you'll speed through the scenic waterway of Cairns' Trinity Inlet with its wonderful surrounding mountains and wildlife-rich waters adding to the great atmosphere. Keep your eyes open - if you can! - for local marine and bird life; if you're lucky, you might even spot one of the famous Cairns locals - a crocodile! Along the way, your jet boat captain will also provide you with some detailed, informative commentary on the local area and regional highlights, providing some background for all the great things you'll see throughout the ride. Departing from the heart of Cairns, this jet boat experience is a great value and enjoyable outing for the whole family; as long as you're willing to embrace some high-speed fun (and don't mind getting wet), you'll be in for one of Cairns' best tours that's fun for adults and kids alike!

The jetboat was a great tour and is super fun for all ages

The jetboat was great as you got to have some good fun and do spins and stuff. Also good how we stopped along the way and was shown some major attractions was good to see that also I would highly recommend this to anyone and I would do this again in Cairns.

Brilliant fun but not for the pathetic seasick prone like me

My family loved it! Unfortunately I became seasick about halfway through. If you're prone to seasickness like me, maybe reconsider baha. The driver was immensely entertaining and engaged everyone so brilliantly. The spin outs were fun up until I started to feel nauseous. No regrets though, what an experience.

Best boat ride. Had the best experience with my daughter. A must if in Cairns.

Best boat ride. Had the best experience with my daughter. The thrill of how fast the boat went was just awesome. Staff were friendly. Weather was perfect. Just the best experience. We really enjoyed it. A must if in Cairns and suitable for kids too...make sure to try!
