What to Expect

The city of Cairns is a tropical hub known as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. It is a hugely popular destination for its proximity to beautiful rainforests and beaches, with plenty of outdoor adventure opportunities. What better way to explore this tropical paradise than on an exhilarating jet boat ride?


Jet boating is a thrilling and adventurous way to appreciate the turquoise waters of Trinity Inlet all year round. The Trinity Inlet is an oceanic inlet that serves as the port for the city of Cairns — this waterway is basically a huge tidal basin with no actual river flowing into it, so it offers almost year-round action. The city centre is on the western bank where the inlet meets the Coral Sea. A  jet boat ride through Trinity Inlet will reveal stunning flora and fauna and wildlife, and you may even see a crocodile or two!


This tour is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. It's especially perfect for those who love going fast! Sit back, buckle in, and soar over the water! The jet boat is propelled by a powerful jet stream. A  jet boat ride through Trinity Inlet will reveal stunning flora and fauna, and you may even see a crocodile or two!


An experienced local captain will provide commentary that will have you laughing as you learn all about the region and its natural beauty and rich history. The tour will even capture the moment with great photos for you to take home to commemorate your adventure (for purchase at an additional cost)!  There’s nothing quite like the unique experience of jet-boating through Cairns. Check it out for yourself!


Meeting point: Wharf A, The Marlin Marina, Cairns QLD 4870, Australia
