      Great experience
      Really funny, and a fantastic experience. And a great way to see Sydney from a harbour- view. The boat driver was funny and experienced and we felt safe.

      EXTREME ADRENALINE RUSH
      Thunder Jet Boating, a really enjoyable experience. You are supplied with a ponchos and life vest. The ponchos stop you from getting sooked, but that is part of the fun. The drivers a so experienced and give you the most amazing ride. The amount of times they spin the boat and bring it to a tilt stop are so much fun. The cost is really affordable for the EXTREME ADRENALINE RUSH 45 MINUTE RIDE. It is a must when visiting sydney harbour. Not only do you get the thrill ride but you get to see the sights off Sydney harbour you can only see from a boat.

      AWESOME
      Wow, absolutely amazing experience. Not only is it the thrills of the spins but it is a great tour of our wonderful harbour. Will, our driver, was fantastic. Stopped throughout to explain whereabouts we were in the harbour and the surrounds. Gave us warning when he was going to be adventurous, checked in and had the music pumping throughout. Highly recommend if you want to see our gorgeous harbour and yes, you do get WET. Great way to cool off in our heat. All the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Best jet boat experience I have had. Done overseas on all my adventures but had never done it in my own backyard. Michelle B

      Thrilling Ride
      Family booking with three grand children aged 8 to 12. Our third trip on the Circular Quay jet boats, it’s one of first things they ask to do when grand dad visits. 👍😀

      We loved it! Our guide, Isaac, made the trip fun and he knew how to get maximum splash. Nothing was funny than watching my 13 yo daughter singing along to the music while laughing and screaming as she got wet. Be prepared to get wet, very wet, and have a lot of fun

      This was an incredible experience! We booked the Extreme Adrenaline trip and it was worth every penny. The whole staff was great. They were so friendly and fun. Isaac was our driver and he was awesome - he is hilarious and such a great guide. He made the experience fabulous. We will definitely be coming back again.

      A good way to see the harbour for a cheap price.
      Great fun but be prepared to get soaked, probably best to plan to go back to get showered and changed after. Avoid a cold day!

      Unexpected fun at the harbor.
      The kids went from bored and grumpy to ear-to-ear grin for 45 minutes non-stop. It was too much fun for all ages. Totally worth it.

    We absolutely loved the spins and brakes. Scotty was an outstanding skipper and he was really enlightening on the history of the harbour . The music choice by Scotty was also awesome! We really recommend for kids as well as adults.

    My teenager and I absolutely loved the Thunder Jet Boat ride. Great service, great team and so much fun! Isaac is charismatic and you can see he really loves what he does and he cares that his passengers have a great time. He puts in an extra special effort and is a great driver. Great value for money and great for teenagers. Well done Thunder Jet Boat team!

    My 7yo son and I decided to do this on the spur of the moment. We were so glad we did. We had an amazing time, plenty of thrills, spins and soaking wet in the process. My boy had a grin from ear to ear, he couldn’t stop yelling in excitement. Adam, our driver gave us a great tour and plenty of fun. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who loves boats and good fun!

    Our group consisted of 12 people (grandparents, parents & grandchildren) aged from 10 to 66 and everyone in our group loved this experience. Starting from the fantastic music to get us revved up to the friendly & amazing driver who appeared to get a kick out of getting us as wet as he could and giving us the best experience he could. It was such great fun, and something I look forward to doing again. I certainly recommend it.

    Great fun. Very wet if you are in the wrong seat but hey I should have worn a poncho which is supplied. It felt too hot before the ride but with the wind in your hair it probably would have been fine. That said, even people wearing one got off the boat with wet asses. There is a lot of water being thrown around. But it was a great thrill and great fun. And the driver obviously knew what he was doing as well as offering lots of info about sites around the harbour.
    One tip I would offer ....... be aware where the speakers are and try to avoid sitting right next to one if at all possible. Our trip was part of a birthday celebration and the young girls felt the music was way too loud right in their ear.
    But generally a memorable experience for all the right reasons.

    Fantastic jet boat ride on Sydney harbour. We went for the 45 minute ride rather than the 30 minute ride, more speed, spins and drenching! Adzee was a great pilot and made sure we ere always safe (and wet)! Highly recommended.

    Now, we went poncholess, was it the right decision....

    I am 53 amd loved it to bits. It Was a fantastic thrill. The music pumping with the speed of the boat, the 360°s and the Harbour vibes all went so well together. It was A natural high. It made me feel so glad to be alive. Would have to be one of the best jobs ever plus the driver is a tour guide a little added bonus. I envy him.

    Next time I will take goggles as the salt water casting a bit.

    Fantastic professional operation. Scott was not only fantastic beyond the wheel but also stopped to give us a run down of the harbour. Always concerned about his passengers along the way even offering fresh water to assist with my young sons eyes!!
    I would absolutely recommend this jet boat ride. Adam and the crew back at the base were also fantastic a big thank you from myself and my 8 year old son Hunter who loved the ride and is still wearing his cap and T-shirt

    Lots of fun for myself and my 12 year old son, he loved the whole experience from the music to the twists and turns to getting soaked.

    Was a great way to see the harbour especially on a beautiful sunny day, even as lifelong Sydney residents. I was happy to be able to help support one of our local attractions at this time. Highly recommended.
