Top Tips

Australia's most exciting Jet Boating ride; The Gold Coast is the adventure capital of Australia and Jet boating is the new, must do activity for the whole family! Experience the ultimate dose of extreme adrenaline packed adventure on your Surfers Paradise jet boat ride including extreme 360* spins, awesome wake surfing, high speed drifting and incredible "Beach Buzzing". It's more than just a thrill ride.... it's an adventure.

Your 30 minute thrill ride on the Gold Coast Broadwater is an action packed ride. Filled with incredible high speed slides and drifts, exciting 360 degree spins, awesome beach buzzing and nose offs there won't be a dull moment on this ride. Travelling through the Southern Broadwater around Wavebreak Island, the scenery encountered is just as great as the thrill provided.

This extreme adventure takes place on one of the safest and most advanced jet boats operating on the Gold Coast. Jet boats are powered by either a V8 race tuned, big block 502 Chevy or a high performance, turbo charged 500hp "new age" diesel engine, making them FASTER, more manoeuvrable and agile, allowing all of the wicked spins, exciting fish tails and of course the famous adrenalin pumping 360* spins!

This ride was mind-blowing and very nice… as well as good customer service... I would like to recommend this ride to all my friends. Whilst you enjoy your ride you can see the beauty of the isolated land, as well you can enjoy 360 spin turn in the boat and that was awesome... I really enjoyed it….
Awesome ride full of knowledge and entertainment...

Very good experience. Family had heaps of fun and I highly recommend it.

5 stars although we didn’t get a photo taken which was highly disappointing as we wanted to have a memory of this awesome experience. We got wet, we had smiles, and we got upgraded due to a late start. So much fun, highly recommend this to any family looking to enjoy the Gold Coast.

Early morning Jet boating ride

Our family has done this on many occasions throughout the year. It's one of our highlights each time we holiday on the Gold Coast. Very professional & guaranteed a great time, drivers are very fun & comical. It's a must to put on your list, Paradise Jet Boating has been around for years & our family keep coming back to them. Totally loved it & would highly recommend it to anyone.

Excellent experience. Would totally recommend for the whole family

A really excellent experience. Our kids wanted to get wet so the pilot put us in the back row and they sure did get wet! The pilot was great, very funny and engaging. The only thing that could be added to make the experience more memorable would be photos.

Wild and wet ride into the ocean!

Bradley, the captain was really entertaining and humorous! Do note that this is definitely a wet ride into the ocean so do plan the day with that in mind. The meet-up point was a little hard to find as there isn't a shop front but the staff are helpful with directions.

Had so much fun with a great view! Encountered beautiful Aussie animals

The ride was amazing! The driver made it jump and circle a lot so it was exciting, like riding a roller coaster. Also, the driver took us to the beautiful islands in the Gold Coast and explained it. We enjoyed it all! We also could see hawks and a wallaby. It is definitely worth the money and I highly recommend doing the jet boat with them in Gold Coast! I will come back again:) Thank you!

A different way to have a wet and wild experience on the Gold Coast!

We've come to the Gold Coast a few times, But this was the first time we'd done jet boating. It was a lot of fun! It's very well run, with friendly staff and we were glad we did it. You'll get a bit wet on this, but that's half the fun. The only downside is that it's over too soon.

We booked for jetboat for this visit and it was a great experience.

We had a trip to Queensland in June this year and decided to go for jetboat. Macca was an awesome driver, we had a good "spinning time", and he gave us a good introduction to Gold Coast. Overall, it was a great experience for us. We had a fun time on the jetboat.

Overall our experience with Paradise Jet boats was simply amazing. We were thoroughly impressed with how affordable this actually was and just as impressed with how professional and friendly the staff was.

The staff at Paradise Jet Boat were so friendly upon our arrival. Josh who was our driver on this particular ride was awesome. We've done a few rides with other operators in the past, but this company really stood out for us. They had so much more spins and fishtails during our ride... had an absolute blast! This is a must-do activity while here on the Gold Coast :)

Amazing experience - we went 2 times on this experience. The best ever.

Okay so we absolutely loved this experience we went on four sessions, absolutely amazing. Would go again over and over so the ride entailed two hours of amazing awesome jam-packed fun. When you go ask for Christian as your driver - amazing, so funny, should have been a comedian.

Unfortunately there was an error. Please try again.
Be prepared to get very wet on the jet boat, wear clothes and shoes you don't mind getting soaked.
