Huon Jet Boat, Huonville

Must see · Speed Boats Tour · Boat Tour
Hold on tight and head up the Huon River for the ride of a lifetime. Feel the adrenalin surge as the jet boat quickly accelerates to speeds of up to 80kph. You'll whip along the riverbank, weaving in and out of the forest canopy that overhangs the river, dodge around trees and rocks in the river, bounce through white water and fly into full 360° spins. You may not realise the jet boat has slowed down until you feel your grip relaxing on the seat in front of you! Enjoy true tranquility as you cruise through wide expanses of deep water surrounded by forest, wildlife and mountains in the distance. Gaze into the still waters that show off fabulous reflections of the river and skies. Go close up with Huon pines growing on the river bank. Then before you know it the jet boat is back at top speed and the heart begins to race.

It's the balance between thrills and beauty that sets the Huon Jet apart from other jet boat rides. Both aspects of the jet boat ride will take your breath away. The ride lasts for 35 minutes and in this time you will see 12 kilometres of the majestic Huon River. Your driver will occasionally stop at various points along the river to tell you a little bit about the history of the area and provide a commentary about the river itself. It's a thrilling ride along an ever changing riverscape.
