Parasailing, Banana Boat Ride, Jet Skiing, Water Skiing, Flying Fish, maybe you have tried it all. What else in KK City that you can add into your travel to do list? The latest water sports – Jet Boat! This thrilling new activity is not an ordinary boat ride. The ride is fast, bumpy and it will take you on a 360 degree spin!
Thrill seekers now have the chance to take a ride on this out-of-this-world experience. Stationed at STAR Marina, Shangri-la’s Tanjung Aru Resort and Spa, the jet boat is able to fit up to a maximum of 12 persons. For safety reasons, only children above 1 metre are allowed to join the activity.
A first in Southeast Asia, this jet boat experience is similar to what is offered at various rivers and lakes in New Zealand and other countries. This would be a treat for visitors, especially adrenaline junkies who were looking for more adventure.
The jet boats use jet pumps, and not propellers to maneuver. For safety and environmental reasons, jet boats are only allowed to operate outside the areas of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park to make sure these jet boats will not endanger our marine life as it travels at a high speed (45 knots per hour). Keeping a healthy marine life has always been our top tourism priority in Sabah.
Experience the thrill and fun in watching your well-trained captain of the day perform tricky water-drifting manoeuvres such as the “Nose Dive” and a “360-degree Water Drift”. All you need to do is sit tight, enjoy the experience, and if you must, scream out loud!
