    Exciting & Wet
    We’ll organised, fun boat trip. Safety aspects were clearly explained. Anything that could be lost overboard or shouldn’t get wet was securely locked up in advance. Waterproof ponchos and good quality life jackets were provided. Hint-put the hood up on your poncho. I didn’t as I wasn’t bothered by wet hair and the water just poured down through the neck opening, front & back! Prepare to be very wet but it’s worth it

    Best Birthday Ever!
    We purchase the tickets for our sons 14th birthday which was last Sunday. The weather was perfect . From the point that I purchased the tickets the communication was great. The tickets were emailed straight away and text messages were received quickly. We were updated via text message about date and time. As it was our sons birthday they put my son , husband and daughter at the front of the boat. I was a little nervous but the staff were amazing, safety was key and their instructions were clear and to the point. It is simply the best way to see the harbour , it was so much and and were all were literally soaked. It was fast , bumpy , with turns that make you jump in your seat and so much fun . Best part our son never wiped the smile off his face at the end of the experience our sons words ‘best birthday ever!’

    1st class operations with well trained staff
    Easy to deal with staff, had to postpone my original booking due to illness, no issues with re booking at a later date. Upon arrival for the jet boat ride the staff onsite were all upbeat and very helpful. The ride itself was great fun with the spectacular Sydney harbour as a backdrop! Being a Sydney local I would return and would highly recommend

    Gave gift vouchers to 9 adult kids last Christmas. Finally got to go & use them. The Jetboats were amazing! So much fun. We were lucky to have a beautiful day. Got wet, but what's a jetboat ride if you don't! Highly recommend this experience. You get given selfie sticks which is great, & photos uploaded to your email at a small cost. Enjoyed by all.

    The weather didn’t stop us having an amazing day on the Harbour with Oz Jet Boating. Staffs are amazing. Love to do it again! Down size, my friend got hurt by the lady next to her. She elbow her in pretty hard. Simple rules by the skipper, hold the railings and lead back! Guess she didn’t listen. Always check the cameras. Our one was off :( during the individual photos.

    The most fun way to explore Sydney Harbour
    Absolutely loved this tour. So much fun and the best way to explore the harbour. This was Sydney highlight to my 2 kids (7 and 11). If you're not staying at the harbour, have a change of clothes handy as you'll get wet. We went on a 25+ degree day so easy awesome, but may get a dash chilly over the colder months

A great feel good experience gliding over Sydney Harbours' water at high speed, with spectacular burn outs and sudden stops, which are surprisingly smooth. Stunning views of the Bridge, Opera House and City. You may get a little wet, OK maybe soaking wet but the joy gained from this adventure will last a lot longer than it takes you to dry!

Do it, you wont regret it.

Best experience ever!

This is such a must do for everyone! The crew are amazing and it is such an awesome ride. I have gone on the ride with Oz jet boating 4 times and am already organising a 5th time with some more friends. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for this experience.

Definitely bring a spare pair of clothes afterwards because they never fail to leave you soaking !

It is honestly such a good way to see the city, and spend the day out with friends.

The crew are amazing, some of my friends on Saturday were a bit nervous but they made them feel at ease and laugh even before the ride started.

Now those friends want to go again! They absolutely loved it!!

Can not wait to go again! If you’re on the edge about going. This is your sign!! To go Oz Jet-boating for the best experience. Matt and his team are the best.

Took my 9 yr old son and some of his friends for a thrill ride. The staff looked after them really well and made sure they were safe. The ride was fantastic fun showcasing the beauty of Sydney Harbour while doing some great tricks. Ollie was a great driver and everyone onboard loved it. The kids are still talking about it

Walking past this activity we seen the boat heading out and said it looked good with decent speed. As past back again we spotted the jetting and the boat about to launch. We quickly paid for two of us for the ride and hit the rest of the group. As we set off the driver was giving us clear instruction about the thrill manoeuvres he was going to attempt. Going quick and side to side motion a first then the first of many large turns. The poncho provided doesn’t really help but that doesn’t matter as it was so much fun. Expect to get we but you will soon dry off in the Sydney sun. Best and fastest speed boat ride we have been on whilst maintaining safety of the passengers with seat belts and life jackets provided. Give it a go you won’t be disappointed, just a little wet! 😄

What a great experience, absolutely soaked but everyone in our group of 10 came away with a big smile. You get to see the sights around the harbour and have the best time doing it. An absolute winner, staff are professional and just heed their advice for a safe fun adventure.

The Jet Boat Thrill Ride was the perfect end to fun filled day of bridge climbing and city exploring. I would've happily gone around the bay for another trip or three but time was against me. I would highly recommend this attraction, and try to go poncho-free if the weather permits. I did, and loved the experience even more.

Had a really fun ride even though we got soaked to the skin which is what it is all about. Ollie our driver was excellent getting us all to participate and keeping us informed as to what turn we were doing next. Sydney harbour certainly is spectacular and we went pass all the major points of interest.

Would recommend this ride for young and old but just make sure you take a change of clothes.

There were 7 of us. Staff were very helpful. The driver of our boat (Adsi I think was his name) was super friendly and as pumped as we were for a great ride which is exactly what he delivered. We all loved it and the birthday boy whom we were celebrating said he wants to do this every year! Highly recommend.
