After your cruise ship docks in Curacao's port, meet your local guide for transfer to the boat shop. 

Listen to an orientation and safety briefing, then board your vehicle of choice: a custom-made aquaboat or a Sadoo GT Jet Ski. The aquaboat offers a more comfortable ride, and the Jet Ski handles more like a sports car. Each watercraft can carry two passengers. 

Set off and follow your guide for over the coastal turquoise waters. Enjoy great views of Curacao's tropical coastline from your marine vantage point, passing small islands, coves, beaches, bays and stands of mangrove trees. See luxurious mega-yachts and the vacation home belonging to the Queen of the Netherlands. 

At Tafelberg, stop at the beach for a swim. This location is also home to the shipwreck of a tugboat that has become home to many species of coral and tropical fish, making it one of the island's best snorkeling spots. Look for lobsters, morays, and scorpionfish during your snorkel tour of Caracas Bay. 

On the way back to your starting point, enjoy fantastic views of Fort Beekenberg, an 18th-century fort that protected Curacao's shores. Return to the boat shop and then board your ground transportation for transfer back to the cruise port.

Wavyyyy Jetski
, Aug 2021
In the beginning of the Tour my significant and I was pleased and enjoying it as much as we can. We didn’t expect the water to be a bit choppy and wavy. Which can be intimidating for ppl who’s not in the water all year round. However, we took our time and enjoyed the views of Curaçao. What lessened the review stars. The instructor recklessness caused us to fall off the Jetski and fall into water. Things happen all the time but he act like it was our fault. I appreciate the owner finding out if I was ok and what happened. Overall, it was fun. We didn’t partake in the Snorkeling
A great jet ski tour!
, Jul 2021
I gave this tour 4 stars out of 5 because nobody was at the port to pick us up. We waited about 30 minutes and then called the tour company. They sent a taxi after that and we were on our way. It was a great jet ski tour (the bulk of the time spent was on the jet ski) and then we spent about 15 minutes snorkeling at a sunken boat. We thought it was plenty of time. Our tour guide did a great job! We were happy with all of it!

Don't let my 4-Stars Fool You - THIS IS A MUST DO!!!!!
, Mar 2021
This was an AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! Don't let my 4 Stars fool you! This is also a timely review, as we did this excursion on March 10, 2021 The only reason why this is getting 4 stars from me is simply because the VIATOR Representative made a big mistake on the reservation and transportation. VIATOR messed up the transportation and I had to incur an additional cost upon arrival. This had absolutely NOTHING to do with the owner/tour operator - He was amazing and accommodating! So this isn't your average Waverunner tour - we were able to operate the machines freely (safely, and within reason) but had plenty chances to open them up as long as we were in open bays and areas that were not a "no wake zone" We toured all over (I'm not even sure where)... but everything was beautiful; the water warm and crystal clear... and clean! The machines were in excellent condition... our guide - awesome! At the end, we snorkeled a ship wreck with the clearest water and coolest fish you'll see on the island! Again - a MUST DO!!!
Nick the Man !!!
, Feb 2020
We were cruising on the NCL Epic and booked this excursion from home. We had no problems getting to the site. When we arrived there was a minor problem with a weight limit for our 2 person Jet Ski trip but it was quickly resolved. We had Nick as our tour guide. He was friendly and well informed about local information as he showed us the local area VIA our Jet skis. The tour concluded with us snorkeling a nearby wreck. My only recommendation is that the driver of the jet ski should be experienced riding in choppy water and getting on and off a jet ski in open choppy water. We would highly recommend Nick and Adrenaline Tours Curacao.
Loved it!!

This was so fun and literally made my trip! Loved everything about it and would do this again in a heartbeat!
Best excursion ever!
, Nov 2019
Marianna heads up an amazing team at Adrenaline Water Sports! Kevin was our tour guide on this last minute trip. He was funny, informative and a lot of fun. We spent an hour zipping around on high end jet skis, then spent another hour snorkeling. The rate was very fair and the experience was unforgettable. I wouldn’t even think of booking with another tour group, Adrenaline was awesome.
A Blast
, Jul 2019
We had a bit of the snafu at the port and missed our 9:30 tour but they were super helpful and got us on a tour at 11:30. Camilo was a super nice and knowledgeable tour guide. I was a bit scared at first with the big waves but ended up having a great time. The snorkel by the tug boat was fun too.
Jet Ski Tour
, Jun 2019
Little confusion in meeting the group due to conflicting instructions provided us. Caused lot of walking around and frustration....thanks to local guide help we were able to connect. Weather was a factor in the jet ski trip being very unpleasant for my wife - her first (and probably last) jet ski ride....wind and waves were high!! Our guide was super - not his fault - he did a great job and worked hard for us.
Jet ski and snorkle in paradise

it was fantastic! i emailed our reconfirmation (never got response back) but our guide met us at the appointed time and took a 20 min bus ride to the marina. we locked up our things and then off to jetski and snorkle. it was a blast. Evangelos and Andrew were great and shared local stories. We enjoyed it very much.

We did this in June 2017 - we really liked the route we took on the tour. We saw some beautiful homes along the shore. You just snorkel off your jet ski.

We were 2 family’s travelling together. We had so much fun on this tour. Our older boys had their own JetSki and my husband and I shared a JetSki. We spent a lot of time on the jet skis. Saw some houses and boats of the wealthy. Went snorkelling over a small ship wreck. The water was crystal clear!

A Tour email confirmation pick up time was 1:30 pm. Tour operator was there at 12:30 pm. This became a major hassle. B We booked Aqua Boats but the operator only had Jet Skis for us. This was a major disappointment for us and we will not use this company again.

This was a lot of fun! At first, the guides seemed like they did not know what they were doing or that we were supposed to come. This could have been a bit better. Once we got on the jet ski it was great. Really enjoyed some sightseeing on the jet ski and the snorkeling over the wreck!

, Dec 2017
Most fun tour on new fast jetski. Note that you are dumped in the deep end as you exit the harbor to the roughest waters! Best in the calmer wide channel when you can let it rip. Excellent snorkling spot. over a wrecked tugboat. Had to wear chunky life jacket, bring your own inflatable if possible.
I was new to scheduling excursions...
, Dec 2017
I was new to scheduling excursions, so I didn't know what to expect. They were very professional, met us at the cruise port as scheduled. We were bused to the office with those that were touring by Aquaboat, Kayak, and the Jet Ski bus was air conditioned. The guides were young, but very nice, accommodating and professional. My husband and I had a 2 seater jet ski, and this was my first time on one. It was an adjustment for me, but after about 10 minutes, I got used to husband loved it! It was a beautiful, exciting way to experience the island. We parked to snorkel and the fish were amazing. My only concern was that I have very limited experience snorkeling, and even though they provided the mask and snorkel, I could have benefited from fins. The water was a little rough for me. I had a life vest, and the guides were very helpful. I highly recommend this excursion, especially if you are very active. Even though I am 54 and my husband is 60, we work out everyday, and the jet ski is physical. If you have any physical concerns, the aquaboat is perfect, and the snorkeling is awesome!
