Adrenalin Rush - Picture Postcard Setting
Jet boating on Sydney Harbour is an adrenalin rush in a picture postcard setting.
There’s nothing like doing a 360 degree spin in a boat right in front of the Sydney Opera House.
360s, Powerslides & Wake Jumping
Lucky we were given long raincoats to wear. Our driver put our boat through 360 degree turns, long powerslides and a lot of wake jumping. To his credit, our driver gave us a hand signal each time he was about to pull a move!
Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and more
Our driver threw our boat around Sydney Harbour for 30 minutes (75 minute tours are also available), taking us near the Sydney Harbour Bridge and past the Sydney Opera House.
We also saw the navy base at Garden Island and some of Sydney’s more exclusive harbourside suburbs. Every time you stopped to admire the view, you would be drenched with water from one of our driver’s latest tricks.
Great Sound System
I also enjoyed the fact that the boat was fully kitted out with an expensive-looking sound system that pumped out the radio at full blast.
There were people of all ages on our boat, ranging from those in their twenties to those in their fifties and sixties. Our boat did tend to predominantly feature those in their twenties though.
3 companies offer jet boating on Sydney Harbour:
- Harbour Jet at Darling Harbour (downtown west)
- Sydney Jet at Cockle Bay (opposite Darling Harbour)
- Oz Jet Boating at Circular Quay (downtown north)
All 3 companies charge a similar amount: $50 AUD for a 30 minute ride and around $100 AUD for a 75 minute ride.
