Had a great time on the Darwin Harbour and surrounding beaches..i have only been on a jetski as a passenger so was a bit nervous to be driving my own Jetski but i had a great instucter/guide and was up and racing across the water in minutes. Got to see some lovely scenery Darwin looks very different from off shore. And the time flew past very quickly ..im definitely going to do another Jetski tour soon.

Exciting trip in the harbour. Easy to use, great jet skis. Heaps of opportunity to play on the ski. Visited areas around the harbour with informative and friendly staff. Loved the experience and would definitely do it again

Tour organisers are helpful and rebooked my tour for the other day without any issue even though I messed up the date

Was an excellent day. The guide was very knowledgeable and took us to some great sites.

Great experience but make sure you don’t get behind slower jet skiers!
