  • Additional Information:

    It is best to wear comfortable clothing that you won’t mind getting a bit wet! We provide Water Proof Spray Jackets to all Jet Boaters however there’s no guarantee you will stay dry so bring a change of clothes if you have fancy dinner plans. Footwear must be worn (flip flops / sandals are fine). For the ladies, flat shoes are best! We have steps fitted to one of our vessels for ease of getting in and out.

    We do provide waterproof ponchos. Every ride is different according to the Harbour conditions from a mild spray to very wet. If you want to stay on the dryer side, we suggest you sit towards the front of the boat. We do provide secure locker storage for your valuables while on the rides.

    The only restrictions are that all children must be over 120cm, but we do suggest a minimum of 5 years. All passengers should be able to reach the handrails and hold on firmly. Passengers aged under 18 years must have an adult sign on their behalf.

    It is advised that any passenger/s who may be pregnant, had any recent injuries, suffer from neck, back or heart conditions are not to ride.

    Our passengers are required to check in at least 20 minutes prior to their scheduled departure time.

    As you will need to hold on with both hands during spins, unless you have a head or chest mounted Go Pro, you cannot take cameras on board as this could be a risk to yourself or others.

    The Jet Boat staff have over 15 years of experience operating marine businesses on Sydney Harbour and have a 100% Safety Record! These particular Jet Boats are designed and built in Australia with safety as the number one priority. All riders are equipped with a life jacket before boarding, even though we have never had to use them! Our crew and management staff conduct daily safety checks on the vessels to ensure we maintain our high safety standards. We operate under strict controls via the NSW Maritime.
