Why do we love this

This thrilling ride covers two bases at once - Pumping us with adrenaline and giving us a dose of Sydney sightseeing at the same time. 



Experience what jet boating is all about on Australia’s most exciting jet boat - The Thunder Jet!


This thrilling ride get your heart racing as it twists, turns and fishtails through Sydney Harbour. But adrenaline junkies aren't the only ones who will love this boat tour. Anyone curious about Sydney's rich culture and history will appreciate the experience as well.


A ride on the Thunder Jet will take you past the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Islands (Clark & Shark), and the exclusive suburbs of Rose Bay and Watson’s Bay. Then onto Sydney Heads for a taste of ocean air! On return, we’ll take you past Taronga Zoo and under the Harbour Bridge, by Luna Park Sydney. 


Thunder Jet boats can seat up to 23 people and are great for groups of friends or families. Tours depart every hour from Circular Quay and last approximately 30 minutes. Prices begin at $39 (for a child), $69 (for an adult) or $195 for a family (2 adults + 2 children).
