I had a quick blast (as passenger!) in one of the jet sprint style boats when I was there, the holeshot was immense!
Know what you mean about the helicopters, got a fond memory sitting at a beach side cafe when a gorgeous blue Augusta 109 landed in the garden, pilot emerged in sandles, brought a coffee to go then flew off - so casual!
