TropicTunderJet_website-thumbFun for the whole family

This is Vanuatu’s best and fastest Jet boat Adventure, you will experience Port Vila harbour at high speed whilst drifting the boat into sharp turns and spins. Yip that’s right! The world famous Hamilton turn which is a 360 degree spin within the boats length. We have two boats THOR and STORM.

Listen to THOR Roar with its Chevy 454 big block V8 a powerful engine to get anyone’s attention. Or spin up a cyclone with STORM powered by a Chevy 350 V8 both boats will do 90 km/h across the shallow reefs.So hold on to your hats folks

All our tours are full of amazing twists, turns and plenty of splashes; our skippers are experts at sliding the boats sideways, creating wild fish tails and of course the famous Hamilton spins not to mention the enormous power brake stop. The jet boats are built to the highest New Zealand safety standards and operated to the Maritime New Zealand Jet Boating Standard with a unique Vanuatu flair. This is an unforgettable experience and Port Vila’s most exhilarating tour!


We are driven to deliver an unparalleled, value-for-money, friendly and exciting Jet boat ride on the scenic waterways of Vanuatu, ensuring at all times the safety and comfort of our passengers.
