The Gold Coast is renowned for its abundant offering of water-based activities such as our Sea Experiences.
Stand up paddle boarding, charter boats, whale watching, diving, fishing, or riding the crest of the waves on a powerful jet ski; there are plenty of activities that will get you close to the water, just as nature intended.
But, we say, ‘where’s the thrill in simply looking at the water’?!
Dress to get wet and get ready to feel the spray on your face with a Gold Coast jet boat tour!
Exploring the waterways of the Gold Coast on a jet boat offers more than conventional boating. Doubling as a thrill-seeking, sight-seeing adventure, the fastmoving watercraft reach speeds of up to 100 km an hour.
As you speed past famous Gold Coast landmarks such as Versace Hotel, Sea World and some of the multi-million-dollar properties that line the Broadwater, you can feel the exhilaration of the wind in your hair and the spray of water in your face!
While you’ve got the stunning sights of the Gold Coast on one side, pay attention to what’s in the water as you cruise along. You may be lucky enough to catch sight of marine life including inquisitive dolphins travelling in their pods.
Not just for the adults!
Jet boating is a safe activity for the whole family with kids from the age of four welcomed by jet boat operators. With 360-degree spins, high-speed drifting and tail slides, everyone aboard is securely strapped in and must, of course, wear a life jacket!
Slow six-knot zones are enforced by the authorities in certain areas of the shore to protect delicate marine life, but once on the Broadwater, it’s fun all the way freestyling in modern, stable, and comfortable boats.
There’s no chance to get bored on a jet boat tour. Reaching speeds of up to 100 km an hour, the most common feedback from guests is that they want to go back and do it all over again! With a jet boat driver who is friendly and humorous pointing out places of interest and doing tricks with the boat, it’s entertainment all the way.
Jet boat tour operators offer a variety of packages to suit the level of thrill required! Access Moreton Bay Marine Park and Sovereign Island or stay local and complete the jet boat tour around Surfers Paradise and the Gold Coast Spit cruising past the iconic Sea World.
Due to exposure to the elements, jet boat tours are weather-dependent and extreme conditions may mean you have to re-schedule. Book your jet boat tour early in your trip to avoid missing out in the event of a severe weather event that spoils the fun.
Jet boat tours are a must-see activity that allows you to see the sites of the Gold Coast from a unique viewing point…just don’t blink, or you might miss them!
