I’m pretty adventurous, and had always wanted the do this, but it still made me nervous leading up to it... But the nerves quickly disappeared when the operators started interacting with us. SUPER professional and safety is obviously their priority but the way they made it so much fun was amazing and I’ll be going back again ... and again... And again!!!!

My best mate brought us a Jet Ride for my birthday... We got SOAKED but my god it was fun. The boat goes pretty fast and the driver pulls off some cool manoeuvres ... good for the nerves !

We got a 3 activate pass and this is one of the things we did, and it was worth it. You get to see lots of the city, cool down and go fast all in the same trip.

Overall a worth while experience to try out a speed jet and see Sydney Harbour. Maybe it's because there are young children, the ride is somewhat tame. It is also a little costly for a 30mins ride.

Great experience to see the sights of Sydney harbour from the water, forget the boring cruises, this is high energy - thumping stereo and you will get wet - very wet, that is they only thing I didnt prepare for, but it was a great ride - highly recommend. They did take pictures of the ride, but not sure where to find them/buy a print?
