About Tropic Thunder Jet
We won Best Adventure Activity 2017/18 Our 30 minute Jet boat experience is the most exhilarating water tour in the South Pacific! Thrilling 1000’s of people every year this is the most popular tour in Vanuatu. Full of surprising twists, turns and a lot of splashes. This is a Jet boat trip like no other! Recognized as one of Vanuatu’s best value products for a good reason, this is an adrenaline rush from the moment you leave town. Our state of the art custom built Jet boats are designed for one purpose; to excite and thrill you as you race around the Port Vila Harbour at speeds of 80km/hr. Sit back, hold on, and try to relax as our experienced boat drivers navigate the busy water ways over the coral reefs. With skill and speed you will negotiate the shallow reefs, when suddenly you are going sideways, backwards, sideways and back facing the way you were going, WOW, that’s a Hamilton spin! 360 degree spin, as the boat turns in its own length! #thewetterthebetter #bestshoretourportvila

I have been on a number of jet boat rides and this was by far the best. The driver was informative, caring and always told us when he was about to do a 360° turn of which there were many!

Hi the trip is approx 30 mins so I would allow one hour. You will get wet so bring a change of clothes or race back to the ship to get changed. Swim wear is recommended
