    What to Expect
    Your jet boat ride starts at the Marline Marina in Cairns, where you’ll meet your captain, receive an introduction to the boat and put on your provided safety gear. Then hop aboard and take off across the water, holding on to the safety bar in front of you as you quickly reach high speeds.

    Your captain provides a thrilling—and wet—experience by spinning the boat and producing splashing waves. Zoom across the inlet, taking in views of the surrounding mangroves and mountains, and keep your eyes peeled for wildlife. Learn a little bit about the city as your captain points out landmarks, and enjoy upbeat music from the onboard sound system.

    Your tour ends with return to the marina.

    Loved it once, went back and did it again for the second time two days later. That’s how good this attraction is.
