Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet at Circular Quay for your exhilarating 30-minute speedboat ride along Sydney Harbour.

Strap yourself into the jet boat and get ready to fly across the water at speeds of up to 55 mph (81 kph). Your expert captain takes the boat through high speed maneuvers such as fish tails, power brake stops and 270-degree spins while providing entertaining and informative live narration about the sights you pass. At times, the boat slows down so that you can get a good look at iconic landmarks such as Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison, Rose Bay, Goat Island, Taronga Zoo and the city skyline. It’s an adrenaline-fueled tour of Sydney Harbour that is fun for all ages.

Be prepared to get wet, especially if you sit towards the back of the boat; the front of the boat tends to stay drier. Weatherproof outer layers are provided for the ride.

Please note: the departure point for the Sydney Harbour Jet Boat Thrill Ride is located within a 10-minute walk of the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay, or a 30-minute walk of Barangaroo cruise port. You determine the time you need to return to your ship. Please allow ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.
