Where does Harbour Jet depart from?
We depart King Street Wharf 9. This is located near Sydney Sealife Aquarium, Sydney Wild Life & Madame Tussauds and a short stroll from the IMAX Theatre. (See Departure Map)
What do I wear?
It is best to wear comfortable clothing that you won’t mind getting a bit wet! We provide Water Proof Spray Jackets to all Jet Boaters however there’s no guarantee you will stay dry so bring a change of clothes if you have fancy dinner plans. For the ladies, flat shoes are best (flip flops / sandals are fine)! We will supply you with a comfy fitting Life Jacket too – Safety is always our top priority at Harbour Jet!
Is the Jet Boat Ride safe?
Absolutely! The harbour Jet Boats and the staff have over 15 years of experience operating marine businesses on Sydney Harbour. We have a 100% Safety Record! These particular Jet Boats are designed and built in Australia with safety the number one priority. All boats carry safety equipment in the event of an emergency, even though we have never had to use it! Our crew and management staff conduct daily safety checks on the vessels to ensure we maintain our high safety standards. We operate under strict controls via the NSW Maritime. If you have any particular concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our staff.
Will I get wet?
Yes… BUT we do provide waterproof ponchos. Every ride is different according to the Harbour conditions from a mild spray to very wet, generally if you want to stay on the dryer side, ask our friendly staff to direct you to the drier seat.
Is there a Minimum Age for Kids?
Not necessarily, the only restrictions are that all children must be over 120cm, but we do suggest a minimum of 5 years. All passengers should be able to reach the handrails and hold on firmly.
Are there any restrictions to riding Thunder Jet?
The only restrictions are that all children must be over 120cm, and we suggest a minimum of 5 years. All passengers should be able to reach the handrails.

How long do the rides go for?
It varies on which ride you have chosen, the ‘Jet Blast’ is a 35 minute experience and the ‘Harbour Adventure’ is a 50 minute experience. Of course if you charter the Jet boat it can be chartered for however long (or short) you wish!
What is the difference between the ‘Thunder Twist Ride’ and the ‘Extreme Adrenalin Rush’?
