What is a jet boat ride?
Jet boat rides are exhilarating experiences in V8-powered boats. These thrill rides feature a unique combination of sightseeing and manoeuvres like 360 degree spins that are only possible in vessels of this kind. You’ll find jet boating operators in a number of locations around Australia, so thrill seekers can feel the rush of blasting across the water at high speeds.
What to wear on a jet boat ride?
Jet boat rides are pretty fast, so you should dress prepared to get at least a little wet. That makes comfortable clothing like shorts, T-shirts and runners a good choice. Usually you’ll be supplied with a poncho or rainjacket to help keep you dry, but it’s a good idea to bring along some spare clothing to change in to. After all, a huge part of the fun are the twists and turns through the water, so you don’t want to be worrying too much about getting splashed. Sunglasses are a good idea as the glare of the sun off the water can be quite intense. And, this is Australia, so don’t forget to slap on the sunscreen.
