What You Need to Know About Jet Boat Tours in Fiji
- Fiji’s jet boat journeys are more about getting to remote and exciting destinations quickly. However, if you’re looking for 360° spins, you’ll only get that with Sigatoka River Safaris
- There are no age limits for jet boating in Fiji, making the experience ideal for the whole family
- Make sure you bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a sunhat (that will stay on your head at high speed) and walking shoes. If heading to the outer islands with Excitor Fiji, you might also want to pack your swimwear, towel and snorkelling gear.

Blast up the Sigatoka River, travelling deep into the island’s interior where you can experience the real Fijian culture. Stop by a local village and take part in a traditional kava ceremony before getting a tour of the village to learn more about the Fijian way of life. Your village tour concludes with an authentic Fijian lunch before making your way back down the Sigatoka River with high-speed thrills and 360° spins! The tour lasts approximately four to five hours.
