Thrilling excursion - if you love fast cars, coasters or teacup rides, do not miss this!

A chilly day so we had the boat to ourselves! Due to the cold the driver was kind enough to save the big splashes till the end! They have a large lock box for shoes socks, hoodies, phones and wallets -don’t even think about bringing them! The ponchos keep you from getting drenched but you will surely be very wet when you get off the boat!

All the staff were friendly and professional. Adam, our driver, created a fantastic, up beat, positive vibe the whole time, from meeting him, to exiting at the end of our ride. He was also very professional and vigilant of our safety. I couldn’t recommend him more highly. My only criticism would be that a clear warning of how saturated we would get and that a complete spare set of clothes ( including underwear) would be required. Other than that, Jack, his mate and I had a ball, thanks.

This was a totally fun tour and experience getting soaked, splashed and going at high speeds in the Sydney Harbour. This I recommend, especially on a hot day in Sydney! Just remember you will get wet big time, but they provide a red poncho and that helps you from being totally soaked. I loved it big time!
