Was a bit apprehensive at first as we are OAPs and had surgery a while ago, but the team and crew looked after us and we felt safe at all times. Safety was first class. The transportation and changeover was easy and the helicopter ride brilliant all over Surfers. Would do it again, Probably the only things that would have been better. We did not know about the discount for 2nd booking after doing a lunch cruise the day before. There were no concession for pensioners.

Great activity with fantastic staff! The gent doing the Jet Boat ride had a great sense of humour, you could tell that he loved doing his job! The ride itself was great pretty exhilarating and gets you soaked. The helicopter ride gave us some spectacular views of the coast, and our pilot was very informative and really easy to speak to! The only thing that I would say is that the flight itself definitely wasn’t half an hour, maybe 20 minutes at best? Either way, it was definitely worth doing!
