Port Vila Jet Boat Adventure
US$55.83
Overview
Take a high speed jet boat ride on the turquoise waters of Vanuatu for a thrilling 30-minute experience full of twists, turns and splashes. Depart from the heart of Port Vila, zipping past Ifira Island and the breathtaking white-sand beaches of Paradise Cove and Dream Cove. Feel your heart pumping as your expert captain performs sideways slides, 360-degree spins and fish tails. The fun-filled 30-minute ride is perfect for the whole family.
What to Expect
Thrilling thousands of people every year, this is still our most popular tour! Full of amazing twists, turns and plenty of splashes, This 30 minute jet boat ride is the most exhilarating water tour in the South Pacific. Leaving from our Pier on the sea wall in the heart of Port Vila come and explore with us the amazing beauty of Ifira Island and the stunning coastline of Paradise and Dream Cove. We like to hear you scream so a shot of adrenaline is injected into this tour with massive sideways slides, wild fish tails and the famous Hamilton spins. Powered by a huge 390-horsepower V8 engine, the boat roars across crystal clear reefs at breathtaking speed showcasing the amazing scenery of the inner and outer harbor.

Expect to get wet! when the boat spins there is plenty of water coming your way and if you think that's wet wait until we do the power brake stop. Throwing all the thrust of the boat into reverse the sudden change forces the boat to dive with a tsunami of water coming over the front there wont be a dry seat in the house!!

WARNING this trip will get your heart racing with massive amounts of fun to be had by all!

Thrown around the Port at Amazing Speed

This jet boat ride was amazing. Ony a ninge person boat and did the driver do some fantastic manoveurs at high speed. Be warned you will get wet, again be warned you will probably get soaked but the adrenalin rush is spectacular.

Thrills without spills in paradise.

Wonderful small team of people providing a great tourist activity on the harbour. A very attentive and skilled skipper made it a fun outing for my wife and I on our wedding anniversary - keep up the good work team!
