Best Jet Boat ride I've had - also got to see so much of the island that I wouldn't of if I didn't book. Driver was also very informative about different parts of the island. Would definitely recommend .

Sat at the back on the right and I got drenched, loads of fun zipping around the island and going fast with the boat doing circles, zig zags and flying. Would do it again. I felt very safe with an experiences driver.
