Like so many of its South Pacific cousins, the Fiji Islands were formed by volcanic activity. Its incredible beauty lies in the balmy climate, spectacular mountains, warm incredibly blue waters, fabulous beaches and tropical rainforests. The Fiji Islands are still a blessed paradise for visitors.
It is the relationship between the innumerable coves, inlets, creeks and the land that make it a water sports paradise. From indulging in surfing and kayaking to sedate fishing or heart-stopping jet boat rides, there is no place that quite gives you the same experience or excitement as Fiji. One of the most exhilarating activities you can hope to get into, while in Fiji is a ride on a jet boat. Fiji’s weather also makes the ride a year-round activity.
The boats are all fabricated and brought in from New Zealand who is the world-wide leader and pioneer of this high-powered sports technology. Its big V8 drives provide the gut-wrenching acceleration, unbelievable manoeuvres and 360 turns executed at over 80 kmph, which are the highlights of the experience.
Jet boat rides can be booked from the docks of Denarau Island in Nadi. They also start from there. Typically the ride lasts for about 30 minutes. You roar across Nadi Bay, along the Denarau waterfront and past mysterious mangrove forests. The thrills and water spray come in equal measure as your jet boat speeds under bridges and flirts with the rocky banks of the Nadi River. The grab handles along the sides of the boat usually get a good working over by passengers.
Taking a Shotover Jet Boat ride promises to be the ride of a lifetime and an experience you will not forget – ever!
