Bad Fishy Jet Boat Ride Reviews


Kendall James

Took my 8 year old son for a ride on his birthday and he absolutely loved it! Would definitely recommend this activity for adults and kids alike! We are local, and having toured the Trinity Inlet before many times, we still found Pat's trip to be unique in every way - learnt a lot of things we hadn't known about the area, and seeing the sites at high speed really made this activity one to separate from the rest. Just do it!!


Mikayla Young

We had a wonderful time! Took the boyfriend for a ride and filled the boat with his friends for his 40th birthday. What a great fun time?! Wonderful friendly service and knowledgeable about the local area - I'm Cairns born and bred and I still learnt some things. Good comfy boat and it's so great to see the staff enjoying it too, they obviously love what they do. We all enjoyed our time and are sure we'll be back for another ride sometime!!! Thank you!!!
