One: Harley ride – pretty cool. Two: Ocean Extreme – pretty wild. Three: diving with sharks – are you kidding me?
Live Adrenalin is a company which lives up to its name. They offer around 150 action adventures across Australia. The Triple Challenge we sent Jules on was a true test of his grit.
First was a hair-raising Harley Davidson pillion ride. The route starts at Darling Harbour's Cockle Bay, goes to Woolloomooloo, winds up to Kings Cross, then to the Botanical Gardens and Mrs Macquarie's Chair. Then you head across the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Aquarium in Manly. By now you should be relaxed and confident enough to take in some of the pretty spectacular scenery along the way.
Diving with sharks isn't something you have the chance to do every day. Your adventure starts with an introductory program designed for non-certified divers. Then you are given a wetsuit and weight belt and it's off to the training pool for a practice run. Once everyone feels confident, you slip into the small holding tank, your gear has a final check and you drop into the 4,000,000-litre main aquarium. Then your 30-minute walk through the underwater wonderland begins.
The third challenge is Ocean Extreme on Sydney Harbour in a rigid inflatable boat. It is 7.3 metres long and powered by twin 200hp V6 Mercury outboard engines, which can propel the vessel to speeds in excess of 100kmh.
The 40-minute high-speed tour begins as a leisure cruise from Darling Harbour. Then the speed is turned up as you head towards the open ocean, doing 90 and 180° turns. There's no need to mention that this is when you have to hang on very tightly!
Weather permiting, your driver will launch the vessel off the incoming swell which rolls through the Heads, into the air. Exhilarating, to say the least...
You get to choose the day for each adventure. For an action-packed weekend, book yourself two-days of back-to-back fun! Or spoil yourself with a month of adrenaline and book an adventure for each weekend! The choice is yours!
