Get your adrenalin pumping
You may have seen Sydney from the ferry or even off the top of the Harbour Bridge, but have you experienced Sydney Harbour at full speed?
Sydney Jet offers 35 minute jet thrill ride from Cockle Bay and Darling Harbour. Although it starts as a calm ride, before you know it you are speeding up and taking a super fast lap of Sydney Harbour.
You get to experience great thrills including fishtails, spins, power brake stops and sweeping slides. The ride takes you under Sydney Harbour Bridge, past the Opera House and then to Watsons Bay. After a few more high speed spins you make your way back past Bradley's Head, Kirribili and Luna Park.
The cost of the ride is $69 for adults, $47.50 for children under 16 years (must be over 1.2m tall) or $185 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children.
During winter, Sydney Jet offers a 25% discount off adult and child tickets.
If you are looking for a special gift for someone who has everything, why not give them a gift certificate for a thrill ride. You can buy them on the Sydney Jet website and either download them instantly or have a gift card mailed to you.
Sydney Jet operates from The Cockle Bay Marina, Darling Harbour. Each boat holds 23 people and you are provided with water proof coats to ensure you don't get completely saturated. Although you can expect to get a little wet.
You must arrive at least 20 minutes prior to your ride. If you need to cancel, you must do so at least 24 hours prior to departure. If you have a back, neck, shoulder or heart condition or are pregnant, then it is not advisable to ride the jet.
