Huon River Jet Boats

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Huon River Jet Boats offers high speed boat tours on the Huon River, Southern Tasmania. Huon River Jet Boats is based in Huonville, a 35-minute drive south-west of Hobart (48 km) in the Huon Valley.
Huon River Jet Boats offers an exhilarating ride along 12 km of the Huon River. This 35-minute experience combines beautiful scenery with the thrill of white water. You’ll speed through rapids and feel the excitement of 360 degree spins and breathtaking turns. You’ll also experience the contrast of drifting along the tranquil waters of the river, seeing perfect reflections of riverside forests. Your skilled skipper and guide will reveal the history of the Huon River and Valley and, back on shore, you can sit down to a tasty meal made with local produce in the Boatshed Café, overlooking the river.
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.
