What a total blast. We just happened on the shop in the marina and thought we’d give the jet skiing it go.
the h&s was delivered professionally both in the shop and then on the quay.
Safe trip in and outside the harbour, then fully encouraged to open them up and have fun. Brilliant. Do it. Robby very encouraging to have as much fun as you can. My son driving me around was great for him and a little bouncy for me at the back!

6*

6* Review, WOW Thank you BigBobW4 ! So glad you found us here at the Crystalbrook Marina :-) Sometimes the last minute, unplanned activities are the most fun! It sounds like you had a ball. Very happy to hear you felt safe and that our safety briefings and instructions were well received and understood. Maybe next time you should have a drive yourself?! Kind regards Sharon, Rick & the Uplift Team

While only in Port Douglas for the day (on a cruise), I'm glad my partner and I stumbled across Uplift Watersports.

At only $90pp for our tandem parasailing ride, we thought it was well worth it for the experience. Our only concern throughout the whole experience was time; booking was at 3:30 and last tender was just after 5. After explaining to us that they were taking a smaller amount of people for that particular trip, and the approx amount of time the whole experience would take, we were confidant it would be fine (and it was).

Once up in the air you get great views of the Port Douglas coastline and some of the surrounding area. Thankfully the weather was good while we were there but even on a bad day, it wouldn't take away from the beauty of the area.

If you're like me, and get motion sickness very easily, you should be fine. The only time you may feel a bit ill, is will parasailing itself, due to the rocking motion. Apart from that, you should be fine.

Again, great staff and experience.
Would definitely do again!

Thanks Tash. Cruise ship days sure are busy and we love having a couple of fun, adventurous activities available for visitors while on shore. You don't have much time but we do everything we can to look after as many people possible within the time frame! So happy to hear you enjoyed yourselves and that sea sickness didn't take hold! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your cruise and maybe we will see you in Port Douglas again for a longer stay next time. Kind Regards Sharon ,Rick & the Uplift Team

Ha Ha! So glad you had such a ball and yes we agree that riding solo is heaps of fun - way more control of your own speed and can get bigger jumps! Our located right in-front of Hemingway's Brewery is perfect for that apres jet skiing drink :-) Kind regards Sharon, Rick & Robbie.
