What to expect
Meet your jet boat captain at the Marlin Marina in Cairns and receive your safety gear and a briefing before you step onto the jet boat. Once you’re ready, hang on as your jet boat takes off, quickly reaching the high speeds that make this ride so much fun. Grab the safety bar in front of you as your expert captain takes you on a wild ride; expect your boat to spin around, generating waves that splash you. It’s all part of the fun, so wear clothes that can get wet and enjoy the spray! Your captain explains the sights as you zip around the inlet, which is surround by mangroves and mountains. You might catch sight of a crocodile or other wildlife as you go! Your captain’s expertise with jet boats and insider knowledge of Cairns is sure to make this adventure informative and highly entertaining. You’ll even hear funky music pumping from the boat’s sound system as you zoom across the water. At the end of your 35-minute ride, return to the marina to end your tour.

Wonderful exhilarating ride very professional operators and informative, my 9 year daughter loved the ride and if you want to get wet take the last row as my daughter insisted and couldn’t keep the smile off her face.

Definitely the most memorable tourist experience I've had in Cairns. Yes, it was fun and exhilarating but also filled with informative local knowledge and, let's not forget, the scenery, just beautiful. Thank you to the impressive Bad Fishy team - your commitment to delivering passionate customer service shone brightly!!

A great excursion
We had a great time zooming up the inlet and into small creeks. The skipper was great and, I suspect, having as much fun as us. Would recommend highly (PS we have grey hair). Good for all ages.

Great time we did it twice
They were wonderful with our young boy who was very very nervous getting on, however by the end he absolutely loved it and this mainly due to the caring nature of the driver and staff. You cannot fault the clear easy instructions given.
You get a bit of information and a tour along with this jet boat ride so it’s great value.
We enjoyed it so much we went twice.
Those complaining you get wet... it’s a fast paced thrill ride on the water it kind of speaks for itself.

Amazing
Had such an amazing time on the jet boat ride with our driver Patrick. This was so much fun with the driver doing heaps of fun spins. We were sitting at the back and got absolutely soaked. The driver showed and told us all about cairns. We went down one of the creeks and even saw a crocodile. Would definitely recommend it.

What a great day thanks to the bad fishy crew. They were so accommodating for a bunch of young teenagers. Thrill seeking, fun, reckless (in a safe way) and affordable.
