      Fast furious fun and suitable for most
      My daughter and husband went on a trip this Wednesday with Malcolm. They had a fantastic time . They both said it was top thrill seeking experience, starting with a good safety briefing and then the trip itself which was fast and furious but felt safe at all times . Malcolm made the experience extra exciting with his great energy and personality

      Never too old
      Great fun for all ages ( even 80year olds ) Bad Fishy made it a wonderful experience for all us oldies. Hardest part was stepping in and out of the boat but staff were happy to assist . Will be doing it again on our next trip.

      Well Worth It!
      For a birthday present for the kids we all went for a spin up the Inlet. Was great fun! Friendly and informative staff who were very diligent with WHS. Plenty of thrills and beautiful scenery. Definitely worth doing! Supporting our local businesses.

    This ride is an absolute must do when in Cairns. Our driver Malcolm was fantastic he told us about the history in the area and played some great tunes.
    The 360’s were awesome and yes you will get wet on this ride. The whole family really enjoyed this activity. Thanks Malcolm and his team for making it fun.

    We went out jet boating today with Malcolm. We had an awesome time. Malcolm was very friendly and made the ride very exciting with lots of 360’s. The weather wasn’t great today but it made it more exciting as you’re going to get wet anyway. We would highly recommend Bad Fishy. It was a fantastic trip. Great work guys 😀

    Thanks so much for your review and for coming out for a spin. Great to hear that you enjoyed your trip with Malcolm. Sorry the weather wasn't ideal, but you are right, we will make the most of the wet weather regardless and still have loads of fun!

    So we went in October 2023. I was sceptical to begin as my friends wanted us to do it. I asked about whiplash as we were waiting to board and it was treated like a joke. The young staff were quite flippant and I was not that happy but thought I was being silly as trusted the company and a skipper who seemed to be 50 plus. Long story short, one kid came free and hit his head on the first spin, the skipper said he may have undone his seat belt, not sure but it was lucky he wasn’t killed. His poor grandmother was shattered and they both disembarked. After they Took him and her back, we went out again and then an elderly lady decided it wasn’t for her so we went back. Anyway the skipper was clearly trying to make it up to those who remained and we spun many times. So maybe 1,5 hours all up. Lucky I suggested more sunscreen after the lady disembarked or we would have been burnt to a crisp. He didn’t seem to think of that. He spun us way too many times to be enjoyable and even my friends who were keen were well over it. I thought there was a lot of male ego at play and would never do it again. Hopefully things have improved. They need to take safety seriously and still have fun but not be jerks about routine safety queries. Clearly their safety failed that day.

    Really enjoyed our time on Bad Fishy. Highly recommended. You’ll have a smile from ear to ear with every spin and turn. The backdrop of cairns and the surrounding mountains is spectacular, making this experience one you’ll always remember.

    Thought we would try and do something as a family we hadn’t done before as locals in Cairns. We have kids that are 10, 8 and 6 years old. Thankfully the only just turned 6 year old cleared the 1.1m height limit as this was a cracking ride down the Trinity inlet singing away to a bit of rock music. Everyone was left buzzing and soaking wet from plenty of 360 degree spins. Would definitely recommend this one as a crowd pleaser! My tip would be sit up the back if you want to get wettest but up the front for the best photos. Thanks guys!!!

    We went today, were half way through and my autistic 11 year old done began to feel sick. Straight away Malcolm asked if we wanted to take him back to the wharf and drop him off and then he would take the rest of our family and the other 2 passengers back out. He was so genuine and caring. We got back, my son and I hopped off and were instantly taken care of. The others went on and had more fun. Thankfully the other passengers were extremely patient. From the moment we stepped in the door we felt like we had been there a million times. Lots of laughs and heaps fun from an incredible team. We are planning to go back b4 we fly home. Thank you guys for your patience and care. Mel

    Pat is a breath of fresh air. Recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cairns. Support this tourism operator who not only provides thrills but gives great and engaging info about the area. Thanks for a great afternoon my 3 teens enjoyed the fun and was lovely to go in the inlet and see the mangroves. Thank you also for accomodating our last minute booking and looking after us.
