The Drivers

Our drivers are highly trained, professional, full time skippers. All of our drivers hold appropriate skipper and engineers tickets as well as undergoing our in house training program. This training program is based on the New Zealand Jet Boat Skippers Training and is the most stringent of its kind in Australia.

They have to be the best skippers…. to skipper “Australia’s Number 1 Jet Boat Ride!”

Our drivers are proudly sponsored by Jetpilot – a global leader of lifestyle brands in the watersports market.
