Owner description: Port Macquarie's BEST and most THRILLING ocean ride!! Portjet boasts one of the only jet ski 'hire and drive' parks in NSW, as well as a brilliant new 10.5M boat called "Wave Rider" for all of your thrill ride and whale watching adventures, this is the ultimate place for all water-based activities on the Mid North Coast. Wave Rider features state-of-the-art equipment and 3x300HP Yamaha V6 outboard engines that give the vessel the title of "Fastest commercial boat in New South Wales"

The ride starts off at 4 knots from the wharf to the sound of Men at Work, Land Downunder. The sun is shining and the view of Port Macquarie relaxing.
The 4 knot limit sign is reached and suddenly the music changes to AC/DC, Thunderstruck - and then we take off!
The adrenaline is well and truly pumping as we now surge, surf and jump over and around waves. It is truly awesome.
Acca Dacca over, we now head along the coast for a more educational tour, learning about local events and features.
The turn around at the lighthouse now brings us screaming back to the harbour and one last play in the waves.
The tour is very professionally run and safety is paramount.
Well done to the guys at PortJet - a slick operation

A great mix of high speed fun and interesting commentary about each of the beaches down the coast. We saw dolphins just north of the river mouth.

Did jet skiing and the wave rider and had the best time time! The jet skiing guys were so much fun and loved just getting out on the jet skis full throttle!
The wave boat was exceptional and a must do when in Port Mac. With the music pumping it felt at times like you were flying as we hit the waves, so much fun. The ages on our boat ranged from 8-65 and not sure who had the most fun! The skipper provided sightseeing commentary as we made our way down the coast right up to Tack Lighthouse and we even spotted dolphins right up our boat!
Highly recommend as a must do! You won't regret it..the best 45 min ride of your life!

Yes, you do feel like you are flying at times. High speed maneuvers and acceleration you must experience. Staff are extremely helpful with a focus on safety. Educational to the non locals with commentary at different locations South of the Heads. Max speed of 100kph on flat days but still fantastic at lower speeds launching along the swell. We were lucky and came across a pod of 15 or so dolphins slowly making there way north, great photo opportunity from 10 m. Great value for money for an adrenaline rush.
