      A last minute decision which we are glad that we made.
      Loved the ride. Brayden our driver was great. The lady at the desk was lovely when we were running a little late because we did not know where to park. ( Parking info was sadly lacking) Clear instructions once on the boat. Brayden understood when a lady wasn't coping and needed to get off after the first couple of 360's. I think they purposely do a couple early for that very reason. Plus, he made sure that everyone else still got a great ride. Thank you.

      Hamish and his harem
      We've literally just come from the jet boat extreme experience. Hamish was our driver. He did an excellent job in keeping us all informed, engaging with us regularly and ensuring we each had a unique experience. Highly recommend Hamish and the team for and really positive experience .

      Fast paced exhilarating fun. Would highly recommend!
      Fast and furious on the water. Fun experience to get the adrenaline pumping! On the water for an hour doing sharp 360 turns at 80kph. Life jackets and sunnies provided to protect from those sharp needle prick sensations of water that will get in your eyes at high speeds if not protected. Strapped in for safety.

    Such a brill time. Nui is an incredible driver - we felt so safe the whole time, he is very knowledgeable and funny, and makes everyone in the boat feel comfortable. Staff are all 5 stars and the experience was seamless.

    The Ride and spin-outs were terrific !
    Handling of our booking (After nearly 2 years Covid wait) by ALL the crew was outstanding; - nothing was too much trouble. Our driver, Adam was great, a laugh a minute and explained eveything very well. - very attentive. A great experience by all the family of 14 who came from Lismore,Pottsville,Southport & Ormeau. It took some organising but was well worth it. The whole lot of us in one boat.!

    I would recommend it to anyone who loves fun & is good value at 55 min. for the ride.

    Awesome ride - we loved every minute. The staff were great - very friendly, helpful and fun. Our trip was with Adam who did an amazing job - very entertaining and welcoming and made sure everyone had a great time. We had a birthday on board and Adam made sure he was sat in the wettest seat on the boat and made sure he got soaked 😂 Would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning. Thank you.

    The family had an awesome time! Loads of fun for the kids. The fun zone was awesome!! Speed, Spins & Smiles. Our experienced driver/guide for the day was very cool - Nathan.

    Highly recommend wearing glasses and bring a towel because you will get soaked.

    My wife and I decided to do the jet boat ride on Sunday and we are so glad we did.
    The ride starts off slowly as you make your way up the river, where the driver can then let loose.
    The house watching was interesting as you cruise past multi million dollar mansions.
    Once in the open the boat speeds up doing 360’ twists and turns, awesome fun.
    You do get wet, but hey your enjoying yourself too much to care.
    Adam our driver was a skilled driver, informative and a very funny bugger.Great asset to the company.
    Highly recommend and when the borders re open and the 4 kids can come up, i will be putting them on the boat for sure.

    What a rush! Did not expect it would be that much fun. Remember to grab a towel and change of clothes. Also recommend buying the $5 sunnies because the salty water really stings the eyes.

    If I get the chance, I’ll do it again for sure!

    This was the activity my partner and I most wanted to do while on holidays and it did not disappoint. The team were amazing and our driver made the ride even more memorable. Next time we are back up this way we will definitely be coming back for another go. I would 100% recommend giving Jet Boat Extreme a go

    Amazing fun! Took our kids (15 and 12) and we all had a ball. Adam is great - professional, very in tune with who’s on board and tailors the trip accordingly, skilled, and a great entertainer. A fantastic experience.

    On Tuesday 22nd November at 9:30am I experienced very unsafe boat driving practices by Adam. Adam was constantly on his mobile phone both talking and texting with his head down on the way out and the way back. He was constantly on his mobile and iPad through out the 6 knot zones. I would estimate around 20 minutes (10 mins each way) of constant talking and texting with head down whilst driving through 6 knot safety zones on the way there and back. The only time he popped his head up was when we where about to go under the bridge. As a family I could count the whole boat as witnesses to his mobile use whilst driving the boat.
    The reason I am writing this review as I work with safety in maritime and I will be following this up with the relevant authorities. Safety is the first priority in driving a boat with families aboard. 0/100!!! 0 Stars!!! Highly Not recommended!!! Stay away from Adams boat driving it is extremely unsafe.
