Jet boat ride on Tropic Thunder

Thrilla in Vila

You are gonna get wet! The jet boat speeds across the harbour throwing in plenty of Spins, Sideways Slides and Wild Fish Tails. It’s 30 minutes of exhilarating fun and all in the beautiful surrounds of Port Vila Harbour, with crystal clear water and stunning islands. The 390-horsepower V8 engine will speed you past Paradise and Dream Coves, twisting and turning along the way, splashing water over everyone. You will be riding in one of our two  jet boats THOR or STORM. This is one of the most popular tours in Port Vila and we can understand why – get your heart pumping and the adrenalin rushing – take a Thrilla of a ride in Vila!

Great discounts for group bookings – the perfect thrill for birthday parties, wedding groups, hen’s and bucks days or whenever a group of friends or colleagues get together.
