Talia, 01 Jun 23
Had the best time on the jetskis! The crew were friendly, fun and had plenty of local knowledge! Would do it again 10/10!
Jess, 23 May 23
This was my first time driving a jetski and I had an absolutely amazing time exploring and seeing Airlie from the waters. We drove past the big mansion where Johnny Depp stayed while filming Pirates of the Caribbean, and even got to see some turtles. Was a great adrenalin rush. Couldn't wipe the smile off my face. Highly recommend it!
Daragh McDonagh, 21 Feb 23
Last Tuesday I was lucky enough to get out on the WS Airlie Adventure Jetski Tour with my girlfriend. We had a great experience from start to finish with the guides doing all they could to make it the best trip possible. Once checked in we got a complimentary bottle of water and were given a safety briefing in which we were told all of the dos and don'ts when it comes to jetski safety and how to maximise our time out on the water. Once the briefing was over we threw on a bit of sun cream and headed down to the skis. Lucky for us the jetskis were only 3 weeks old and all in supreme condition. After getting our life jackets and one last quick run through on how to operate the jetski we started the tour. The jetskis had plenty of storage space under the steering wheel for drinks, hats etc. We were on the last jetski that got into the water meaning we were at the back of the line which followed the guide. Initially I thought it would have been better to be right up the front but after the first 10 minutes I realised being at the back meant we could set our own pace, going as fast or slow as we wanted. Although it was slightly overcast the water conditions were good, calm in areas while also a bit choppy in others meaning we got the full experience. On our way to pioneer point we had a nice mix of building speed on straight runs while also getting to do some zigzags and testing our skills with the beautiful Airlie backdrop over our shoulders. We briefly stopped once we got to Pioneer point, had a drink of water, a small chat and then one of the guides took some pictures of us. Stopping at Pioneer point gave us the chance to swap driver too which was nice. We had a new tour guide who was training on our trip, because we had an additional guide and a group with differing ability we were split into two smaller groups at the halfway point, one more adventurous than the other. We then went turtle spotting which was amazing, we saw at least 4 turtles and took some more pictures. After the turtle spotting we made our way back to the Marina. Overall it was a great trip with high quality jetskis, professional tour guides and loads of turtles… what a combo. Will definitely be going back and would 100% recommend it to a friend.
