    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!

    Fabulous time had by 7 of us, so much fun. Be prepared to get wet 😁😁😁 We booked when we were in port vila, after our trip around, just before getting back on the ship so were able to get changed straight away as we were very water logged, but well worth it.
