      Amazing and exhilarating day out
      We were met by the very enthusiastic Jet Adventures team who greeted us like long lost family members. They were very knowledgeable on our intened route and put my mind at ease with a very thorough safety talk. On the trip we were checked on regularly and all questions were answered. We had a fantastic time and will definitely do it again in warmer weather.

      Exhilarating experience!
      The sea was quite rough so we didn't get as far as seeing the seals! So we were treated to going along the coast. It was a really good experience of big waves and lots of sea spray! We were well cared for and felt safe. We were offered a part refund or another trip as we didn't see the seals.

      Top Trip
      Top Trip. Completely wonderful. Perfect hosts (Fliss and John). Boat ride fun and not scary. Definitly needed the warm layers and provided waterproofs for the late Septmber trip. Bonus view of the 1930s Lydia May - a steam driven sidewinder trawler. Lots of seals. Camera with long range lens recommended for good pics. Plenty of curious seals came over to see us too. So peaceful while bobbling around in the ocean when the engine was off.

      Seals
      Popped down to the beach hoping to see the seals. Costs £3.50 to park for 2hrs or £5 for 4 hours. We'll worth paying the £3.50 to see the seals. Loads seals on the beach and in the water. Beautiful sand and easy access to beach.

      Fun! Interesting way to see the harbour.
      What an insight to see the harbour from the water! Very helpful and informative team. Quite a laugh too. Gave us quirky facts and explained what we were seeing. The railway bridge from below and some of the old boats and wrecks were intriguing. It will be great to go back when the Gullwing bridge is completed. Good waterproofs provided if needed. All good!

      A tour of Lake lothing
      What an amazing tour of Lake Lothing with an interesting commentary on all the boats we were seeing. The wet gear was a must today and, despite being concerned if I would manage to get on board,it was easy with help from the crew.

      Awesome boat trip!
      This was fabulous. Friends visited us on holiday and we wanted to do something different as we have teenagers. Mark and John were fantastic. Absolutely buzzing during and afterwards. We got drenched, but is so part of this adventure, we got some excellent footage. Will definitely book the longer seal trip next summer and we all can’t wait.

      Awesome Ride
      This was a real fun thing to do. John and Co were absolutely amazing and very knowledgeable about the history of this beautiful coastline. Be warned, you will get very wet. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

      Great boat trip - book it!
      Great trip. Adrenalin rush as the boat bounces on the waves and the splash back is exhilarating and really fun. We were a party of two, 53 yo and a 13 yo, but were with people in their late 60s who had just as much fun. Great to have the history of the coastline and information about the local environmental measures in place. This really enriched it. My only wish is that it was longer. 45 minutes flew by too fast.

      Excellent high speed boat trip along the coast...loads of fun and spray and kittiwake hotels too
      This was my first trip out with Jet Adventures and it certainly won't be my last. After a short safety briefing and fitting of lifejackets, we headed down to the purpose designed boat on the South Pier in Lowestoft to experience a 45-minute high speed coastal sightseeing trip. Today we headed south passing the Lowestoft South Beach with excellent views of the Claremont Pier, down to Kessingland and a little beyond, so were level with the cliffs and beach at Benacre / Covehithe. We then did a few high speed turns in the water to keep everyone entertained and a little damp, and then headed back north towards the harbour. On today's run we also headed out to sea, and to see up close the new Kittiwake hotels that had been installed this summer to encourage nesting of these rare seabirds next season. After circumnavigating one of the hotels to get views and photos we then headed back to the harbour, timed perfectly to see the bascule bridge go up, but viewed from the harbour. We also saw one of the unmanned survey boats being driven by remote control from an adjacent vessel, before heading back to the pier. There was plenty of salty spray from the waves at sea, given the winds were moderate with the occasional stronger gust, and the driver of the boat deliberately gave us some high speed turns and sudden stops as some of the people on board wanted to have a 'wet knuckle' experience. There was some great spots of 'airtime' along the coast too, but despite the swell the boat handled it brilliantly with a slightly bumpy but otherwise super stable ride experience. As stated this won't be my last trip with Jet Adventures...I am already booked for a seal watching trip to Scroby Sands in a few weeks, and I can't wait. Great value and fun experience and always a pleasure to support a local family-run business. Highly recommended for locals and visitors alike, you just need to book in advance.

      An exhilarating seaside experience
      It was a lovely morning with bright sunshine and so on. We received a friendly welcome, were fitted with lifejackets, offered waterproofs if we wanted them, which we didn't, and then taken aboard. Our trip took us south towards Kessingland; plenty to see all along the front - the buildings, the beaches, huts, bits of sculpture, with plenty of explanation about this, coastal erosion, sea birds, sand martins, development and so on. Then a return, opening up the speed, to make a curve round the sand banks to see the kittiwake hotels close up. Further bursts of speed took us just north of the harbour with more explanation of the view, the former fishing industry &c. Very good to see Lowestoft from this angle. Back in port, not too much sprayed, we were delighted to have taken this trip.

    Great trip and full of grins!
    This was a surprise birthday trip. Bought directly from their website for a bit less than prices advertised here.

    I LOVED the bumpy ride and even my seasick-husband WASN'T seasick AT ALL. Apparently, they've never had a problem because you're too busy watching the ships and seals and gulls

    Captain John also likes to make you smile with a bit of seafaring swinging....left and right of course

    The seals are lovely.

    A really good fun trip.

    absolutely fantastic afternoon spent with Jet adventures had an amazing trip to Scroby to see the seals . Crew extremely friendly and helpful with commentary on points of interest in the harbour then once out into open sea things got a lot faster.
    You can hire waterproofs for a small fee which was worth doing as got a little wet on the way back.
    Really can't recommend Jet adventures enough anyone would have a great time will definitely be going again

    We live in Lowestoft but seeing the harbour and local coastline from a different perspective was fascinating for me. Coupled with the exhilaration of the speed of the boat on the open sea, stopping to watch the seals at Scroby, seeing the wind turbines close up and all at a very reasonable price. We also had a commentary from the Skipper on the history of the harbour and its businesses.
    We would recommend this activity as a great experience, well worth the money.

    There was a warm and friendly welcoming as soon as we arrived for our trip. After a life jacket fitting and safety talk we were taken to the boat, once seated we were off. We went on a slow and very informative ride to Lowestoft Harbour, told to keep seated, to hold on and then the thrill of the open seas greeted us. John would slow down or even stop if he thought we were likely to see a porpoise, any wrecks or anything interesting. We then went on to where the seals were with a few fast turns left and right bringing smiles to faces. We stopped, engine off, and watched the seals for a while, or were they watching us??? 😊Then we had a blast back along the coast to the harbour. A good trip and well worth the price, definitely recommend it if you get the chance.

    Great value for money, the teens enjoyed the adrenaline thrill of the boat whizzing and bouncing across the waves towards the seals and then when we anchored down we were spoilt for seals! Some even got brave enough to peer into the boat. We even had lots of information given to us throughout from the skipper!

    I went on Friday 25/08 with John the Skipper and Jas. 30 mins on the speedboat at over 25mph up the coast (10 miles north past Hopton to Yarmouth and 2 miles to Scroby Sands wind farm). Had 30 mins with lots of seals popping up, breaching etc. Be there 30 mins early for safety briefing and life jacket fitting. Lovely trip, loved the wind in my hair, John, his wife and Jas are lovely people. I felt safe and had enough time with the seals. Highly recommended!

    We booked initially for the first Saturday in November, but the weather was cold and rainy. We were given the option of going then or delaying till today, which we chose.
    Staff were amazing and informative and the weather was amazing for November. The trip outwards was bracing. When we anchored off the sands, we could see the seals on the beach and loads of them went into the water to come and investigate us.
    Really hard to photograph, as they popped their heads up and down so fast, but they were very inquisitive. It felt very much that the experience was on their terms, which was wonderful.
    Great ride back. I would absolutely recommend this tour

    Wow! This was the highlight of our holiday. Easy to book and lots of information given via email prior to the activity so we knew what to expect and to wear. We came in full waterproof clothing, as recommended; however, it seemed that there were some waterproof jackets for those who didn’t have them. I highly recommend taking their advice as, even though it was a pleasant day, there were unexpected waves and we got very wet! Everyone got a life jacket too (even someone’s assistant dog). During, the staff were very friendly, taking the time to speak to each individual and making sure they were getting the most of the experience and answer any questions we had. Seeing as many seals as we did was just amazing! We were anchored a little while away from the sand bank (so not to frighten the seals or encroach on their territory) but the seals soon came up to the boat to say hello! Thank you so much for a great experience.
