Within the Hobart area there are many boat trips of varying types, and Huon River Jet Boats are one of the most exhilarating. These boats are a very good way of seeing both the beauty of the Huon river and experiencing the raw thrill of a jetboat.
The boats are 5.6 metre aluminium hulls designed by Huon Jet and built in Tasmania by Mariton Marine to comply with the strict requirements of Marine and Safety Tasmania.
The jetboat trips start from Huonville, a 35-minute drive south west of Hobart (48 kilometres/30 miles) in the Huon valley.
The trip combines speeding through rapids and feel the excitement of 360 degree spins and breathtaking turns with drifting along the river being informed of the history and culture of the area.
Tours leave several times a day, (except Christmas Day) from the Huon Visitor Centre jetty at Huonville. You can also have a personalised jet boat experience, tailored to suit your individual needs. Bring warm clothes and a waterproof jacket, your camera and sunglasses and enjoy the fun. Lifejackets and waterproof ponchos are supplied.
