Exhilarating and Fun
This ride is an absolute must do when in Cairns. Our driver Malcolm was fantastic he told us about the history in the area and played some great tunes.
The 360’s were awesome and yes you will get wet on this ride. The whole family really enjoyed this activity. Thanks Malcolm and his team for making it fun.

Great fun = BAD FISHY
Both the boat and the captain were made for this. Whatever adjective describes the ride and the captain better than excellent is to be inserted here.
As with anything that is fun the time goes quickly. The commentary on the history of the area is also very interesting.
We will be dropping in to see Bad Fishy every time we are In Cairns

Bloody unreal
Sep 2021 • Family
Awesome ride with Pat. Lots of fun for the wife and three kids aged 9, 12 and 14. Pat had some great tunes, lots of local knowledge and Kew how to handle the boat. We even saw a small slat water croc. My only negative comment would be to do a few more doughnuts in the water. I would highly recommend this activity for anyone visiting Cairns.

Locals supporting locals
Sep 2021
As a local, we decided to have an afternoon on the water supporting local companies. Why we waited 5 years to try this is beyond me! What an amazing ride! Reaching speeds of 70KPH, you should expect to get wet! Fortunately we have beautiful weather up here to dry out quickly.
I would really recommend all locals get out and support the tourism industry - you will not regret it!

Fantastic and Fun
Pat is a breath of fresh air. Recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cairns. Support this tourism operator who not only provides thrills but gives great and engaging info about the area. Thanks for a great afternoon my 3 teens enjoyed the fun and was lovely to go in the inlet and see the mangroves. Thank you also for accomodating our last minute booking and looking after us.

Don't Miss Bad Fishy
Sep 2021
Went out on 9 Sep 21. If you are in Cairns and do nothing else, do Bad Fishy. Exciting, fun and informative. Took our grandson and had a ball. Great crew. The photo pack of the ride is well worth it. Will definitely go again when in Cairns.

Awesome birthday ride
Jul 2021
We heard so many good reports about the bad fishy jet boat ride that we decided to take our son on it for his 8th birthday. Capt. Pat lived up to the reputation that we heard about. My husband and I enjoyed the ride immensely as for our son and his friends. They are still talking about it and how much fun they had. Thanks a lot, Capt. Pat. Best ride ever. Highly recommended.
