Huon Jet has carried over 100,000 passengers since being established in 1989. Two high-powered jet boats give a smooth and safe ride along the Huon River and through the rapids.
Many customers return over and over again to experience the ever changing water levels and weather.
Picnic grounds, barbecue facilities and a playground are in the river reserve just next door.
The 35 minute jet boat ride races you along the riverbank, weaving in and out of the forest canopy, over exciting rapids and through 360 degree spins.
The jet boat stops at tranquil locations to view huon pine and take in the stunning beauty of the area. Platypus and sea eagles can be spotted and even the occasional dolphin comes to visit in the river. Following winter storms, snow can be seen on the surrounding peaks.
The Huon River gives a true insight to the rugged beauty and wild rivers of Tasmania’s wilderness west coast – but only 35 minutes drive from Hobart.
