Small groups for a personal service (maximum 10 passengers on each activity).
Great fun for all ages and no experience or licences necessary.
Enjoy the best seat in the house for a birds eye view of beautiful Port Douglas and surrounding rainforests. Be captivated by how peaceful and calm it is but don’t forget to also look out for sea life.
Take-offs and landings from the boat are very slow and gentle making you feel as if you are truly “floating on air”. Seated side by side on a tandem flight, you can share the experience of coasting up to 100 metres above the magnificent tropical coastline. You can even request a water dip where the skipper slows the boat to lower you in for a “water dip” before speeding up for you to float back up into the air.
After eight to 10 minutes of spectacular views, crew will winch you slowly back down to the boat for a soft landing. All the hard work is done for you so all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the view. Great family activity. Under 12’s are welcome to fly but only in tandem with an adult. Minimum age is approximately five to six years (the child must be able to fit safely in a harness).
For 75 minutes. (Allow up to 45 minutes on top of your chosen tour duration for safety induction, kitting up and demonstrations).
Gentle cruise alongside the boats in the marina and the iconic Sugar Wharf. There will be 60 full minutes on the ocean to cut loose, twist and turn, spin 360’s and jump some waves or maybe you prefer to take things slower, enjoy the scenery – the choice is yours.
There is no compulsory circuit with over three square kilometres of ocean to play in, safe in the knowledge a qualified guide is supervising you and on hand should you need them.
Coral Sea Spin:
For 45 minutes. (Allow up to 45 minutes on top of your chosen tour duration for safety induction, kitting up and demonstrations).
Prefer something a little shorter? Looking to just ‘have a go’, a bit of a taster, or have young kids with you? This tour gives you everything above but reduces your time on the ocean to 30 minutes – still plenty of time to get the heart pumping!
This tour goes for 95 minutes. (Allow up to 45 minutes on top of your chosen tour duration for safety induction, kitting up and demonstrations).
Gentle cruise alongside the boats in the marina and the iconic Sugar Wharf. Hit the open ocean for a 10 to 15 minute freestyle session to get used to the Jet Ski. Once confident your guide will lead the group on an action-packed ride along Four Mile Beach. You will have time to catch your breath at the southern end of the beach to enjoy some gentle cruising amongst the fringing reefs. Keep a look out for resident turtles and Sting Rays.
Pick up pace again into the open ocean for an exhilarating, wave jumping circuit back. Now you are a pro, finish up with an extra freestyle session, time permitting, before heading back into the marina.
