Overview
Experience Sydney Harbour in a unique way: during a 30-minute wild ride on 'Thunder', a jet boat capable of slides, twists, wave riding, and fishtails. Enjoy some sightseeing between tricks with views of Luna Park, Taronga Zoo, Sydney Opera House, Rose Bay and other famous Harbour landmarks.
What to Expect
Make your way to Jetty 1 at Circular Quay, located midway between the Sydney Opera House and the ferry wharves. There are multiple departure times throughout the day. Lockers are available to store your belongings (bring a set of dry clothes for afterwards), and you'll be provided with waterproof ponchos and life jackets. Meet your captain and listen to a safety orientation before taking off for your 30-minute jet boat ride. 

Zip through Sydney Harbour, past sights such as the Opera House, Rose Bay, the Taronga Zoo, and Luna Park. Listen to tunes on the state-of-the-art speaker system and hold on to your seats for a wild ride. The jet boat can travel up to 47 miles per hour (75 kilometers per hour) and perform tricks such as 270-degree spins, fish tails, wave riding, slides, twists, and power brake stops. 

Head back to the quay after your 30-minute ride.

Great way to get WET!

We took this ride as a birthday present for our eldest son but we all had a ball. Thanks to a passenger who "chickened out" when we were well past Garden Island, we got an extra long ride. Our boat driver, Ben, took the time...More

Fun way to see Sydney Harbour

This jet boat ride was so much fun, loved the speed and music on board. Definitely got the adrenaline pumping. Staff were very friendly. As others have mentioned, be prepared with a change of clothes. We got drenched! An unforgettable experience.

Laughed all the way - Awesome!

We absolutely loved this ride - best jet boating by far. Have done jet boating in New Zealand & Queensland and nothing came close to this. Highlight would have to be the 'dives' we took in Sydney harbour (very salty water!). Came up drenched but...More
