Great fun

We booked at the very last minute and had a great ride in this jet boat up the Huon river. Rug up warm as it can get very cold on the river.

We did this last minute and it was great and the driver was very entertaining. Maybe the company should offer some type of photo etc so that when you return you could choose a memory or CD to take home with you "at a cost"

Gentle enough for the faint-hearted, wild enough for the young at heart, interesting commentary from the driver. A family owned business rather than a franchise, great customer service and good value all up. Had a great time.

Fantastic fun, had a great time. Boat ride was awesome and skipper gave us a great insight into the area and its history. I thought it might be too full on for my wife but after a couple of 360's she sat back and really enjoyed the whole trip.

Took the family down south for a weekend and put the youngsters on the Jet Boat, they said it was great fun and informative ride up the Huon river, they did a few fast turns which was great fun for them but heart stopping for me. The scenery was beautiful and service was good, but certainly not for the faint... More

We can definitely recommend doing the Huon jet boat trip. It was fantastic! Worth every cent. Felt very safe through every maneuver, even the 360's.

We travelled return by public bus from Hobart to Huonville and then it is a short walk to the Huon Jet Boat. Travelling up the river we did a few fast turns which was great fun. The scenery was beautiful and we really appreciated the commentary. After the ride we sat on the balcony and enjoyed a nice lunch from... More

We had a 40 min ride on the Huon Jet Boat. The boat travels about 10 or 11 kms upstream and we were given a history of the town and some aspects of the river along the way. As well numerous 360deg spins. It also goes through a number of shallow rapids and dodges some obstacles in the water (mainly... More

We had a great time. The driver has had years of experience and was extremely knowledgeable and very careful. Would only do 360s when we were all ready for it. A fantastic holiday experience and perfect weather too.

This was fantastic! Even on a cold and slightly rainy day, the boat keeps you warm and dry. You travel up the river, dodging in between fallen trees and rapids, doing a few spins. The driver is very friendly and chats about the boat, the river, the ecosystem and history of the area, and points out wildlife which you'd probably... More
