I like to think I am a bit of an adrenalin junkie. I always say YES to any adventure that is sent my way so when Westcoast Jet Fremantle offered a chance for their Ocean Encounter, I was there in a second. With the Home Roaming Project gaining more and more momentum, I must say I have seen a completely different side to Western Australia. It is full of hidden adventures, exciting trips and beautiful places. Australia’s little gem!
I tend to be a bit of a scaredy cat, but this is my kind of adventure- spinning and flipping in a jet boat at 75km/hr while getting soaked, listening to good tunes and laughing your head off. I cannot think of a better way to spend your weekend. Fremantle is known for it’s quirks, so the jet boats fit in really well- but don’t expect to be able to go to Cicerellos Fish and Chips for lunch after the ride- you leave SATURATED and a little numb, with your smile plastered to your face.
The day started with cloudy skies and windy air, but we knew that it wouldn’t matter once we were out in the open water getting soaked. As we boarded, we were able to give our belongings to the crew to ensure they stay dry (unlike my go pro..) and we were off in a few minutes. I think that’s what I liked best- there was no messing around, no fuss- just action from the second we got there.
All I could think about was how this would be the perfect first date- there was no hiding your snotty noses and wet hair, it was exciting and hilarious- it was the ultimate experience to get you out of your shell.
So why choose Westcoast Jet Fremantle? Well firstly, it is one of the cheapest (and best) experiences around Perth, at only $50pp pretty much everyone can afford it and it’s worth every cent!!! Secondly, how often do you get to go skidding and spinning around the ocean with no care in the world? If your an adrenalin addict, get involved with this great company, take out your mates or family- you will leave wanting more.
