Take to the seas on an adrenaline fuelled jet boat ride during your holiday in Orihuela Costa. The majority of people enjoying a seaside holiday like to include a few exciting activities, and Orihuela Costa certainly doesn't disappoint. There really is something for everyone with popular land based activities such as golf, horse riding, hiking, go-karts and quad bikes. Water activities include sailing, kayaking, jet ski, banana boat, parasailing and of course jet boat. For more adventurous visitors who wants a bit of both there is the thrilling sport of coasteering.
Jet Boat Location
Torrevieja Marina is just a 10 minute drive from many of the Orihuela Costa's coastal suburbs. It can also be reached by taking the Alicante – Pilar de la Horadada bus which runs along the N-332 and stops in Campoamor, Playa Flamenca and Punta Prima before continuing to Torrevieja. Passengers can get off at the first city stop by the harbour salt conveyor or continue to the main bus terminus. From each stop it's about 15 minutes walk to the marina.
Jet Boat Adventure
When arriving at the boat's berth the first thing you notice is its striking colour and graphics. Canary yellow with pink writing and a muscled bee graphic at the back. Even its shape looks powerful, and indeed it has to be with the speeds it reaches and the stunts it performs. The boat boasts 12 sturdy and comfortable passenger seats with ‘grab bars' in front to hang on for dear life! Up front is the seats for the pilot and assistant/cameraman.
Once all passengers have received a brief safety talk and are strapped into their life jackets, it's off for the ride of a lifetime. With its super powerful 450HP inboard motor the jet boat reaches speeds of 45 knots in just seconds. Its aerodynamic shape and specially designed braking system allow the boat to perform thrilling stunts. Passengers will enjoy 360 degree spins at top speed and when the ‘power brake' is engaged the boat is practically submerged under the sea.
Jet Boat Discounts
All seats on the boat don't need to be filled but when booking in groups discounts are offered. There is also the offer of the boat trip with a video at a higher price. They have teamed up with Flyboard Torrevieja in order to offer a discounted pack for both thrilling activities. A further 10% discount is offered for those booking online through their website.
