    To start your tour, you can opt for pick-up from your Surfers Paradise hotel or meet the tour activity operator at the 'Adventure Terminal' in front of the car parking area at Mariners Cove Marina, 60 Sea World Drive, Main Beach, adjacent to Fisherman’s Wharf Tavern and Marina Mirage. If you opt to meet the operator at Mariners Cove, you have to check in 30 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time.

    If you select the pick-up from Surfers Paradise hotel, then you will enjoy a ride in a 8-seater, open air, stretch ‘Super Jeep’, one of only two vehicles of the kind in Australia. Then board your jet boat for a 55 minute thrill ride on the beautiful Gold Coast Broadwater. Protected by The Spit to the south and South Stradbroke Island to the north, the calm waters of Broadwater are ideal for jet boating.

    Your trip takes place on one of the safest and most advanced jet boats available. The craft is superfast and ultra-maneuverable, powered by either a V8 race tuned, big block 502 Chevy or a high performance, turbo-charged 630hp new age diesel engine.

    Your ride will be action packed and full of incredible high speed slides and drifts, exciting 360 degree spins, awesome beach buzzing and nose-offs. The adventure takes you around Wavebreak Island, past the mansions of Sovereign Island and weaving through the mangrove channels of the Aldershots. Plus, this tour offers unique “JETcam” onboard filming systems which will record your experience in a USB, so that you can show your friends and re-live your adventure!

    Your activity operator is the only jet-boat company permitted to access the protected Moreton Bay Marine Park, providing you with an exclusive tour through more scenic and secluded areas of the Broadwater and the opportunity to view wallabies, dolphins and other wildlife.

    On the way home, you’ll buzz the beaches and shallows of South Stradbroke Island and whizz past Sea World and Palazzo Versace.

    Merchandise, professional photographs and “JETcam” video footage of your experience are available for purchase after your ride!
