TROPIC THUNDER JET BOAT ADVENTURE, come ride the lightning

This is a Jet boat trip like no other! Recognized as one of Vanuatu’s best value products for a good reason, this is an adrenaline rush from the moment you leave town.

Our state of the art custom built Jet boats are designed for one purpose; to excite and thrill you as you race around the Port Vila Harbour at speeds of 80km/hr. Sit back, hold on, and try to relax as our experienced boat drivers navigate the busy water ways over the coral reefs.

With skill and speed you will negotiate the shallow reefs, when suddenly you are going sideways, backwards, sideways and back facing the way you were going, WOW, that’s a Hamilton spin! 360 degree spin, as the boat turns in its own length!

This 30 minute Jet boating adventure on the Port Vila Harbour gives you an opportunity to experience the coastline of two of the most beautiful Islands, Iririki and Ifira as well as a grand view of town.
