This is the best way to spend 35 minutes in Cairns. The Bad Fishy jet boat powers across the water, slicing, spinning and sliding, leaving a whitewater trail behind. Sea breeze in your hair, salt spray in your face, a massive smile on your dial.


Rainforest, mangroves, winding creeks and rivers, navy boats, private boats, wrecked boats and crocodiles. Trinity Inlet is the watery heart of Cairns, for reef boats and fishing boats, and our very own jet boat.


Every good adventure includes a guide. Yours is also the captain, who will share interesting stories of Cairns, Trinity Inlet and the beautiful sights and surrounds that you will see, during your jet boat adventure with us.


If you measure up taller than 1.1m high, then you’re good to go on Bad Fishy. It’s for the young, the young at heart and is fun for everyone. Capture all those memories and moments with the Bad Fishy photo and video package.
