Gold Coast Jet Boat Ride

Paradise Jet Boating is the #1 Jet Boat operator on the Gold Coast. Great fun and safe for the whole family, your holiday isn’t complete without experiencing this exciting jet boat ride. But don’t forget to book online first as seats book out fast.

Operating in areas of the Broadwater and Moreton Bay Marine Park exclusive to Paradise Jet Boating, our rides are famous for their unique combination of Jet Boat thrills & excitement mixed with stunning scenery & sightseeing. Experience Extreme Jet Boating fun with full 360° spins, high speed drifting, incredible beach buzzing and other exciting manoeuvres in as little as 10cms of water while we explore the Gold Coast’s unique waterways. Because our boats are the most advanced jet boats in Australia, they are faster, more manoeuvrable and feature the highest levels of safety, comfort & performance.

What you see

Cruise past the iconic Sea World theme park, be captivated by Sovereign Island’s spectacular multi-million dollar mansions and watch for dolphins, wallabies and other wildlife through the beautiful Marine Park. Because our rides depart directly into the Broadwater we miss the slow 6 knot zones and travel further.

Jet boat rides departing from Surfers Paradise spend almost 15 minutes in the slow 6 knot/no freestyling zones. Therefore this reduces the time they spend and distance they travel in the Broadwater.

Jet Boat Rides Options

We have two popular Jet Boat ride options:

Jet Blast Jet Boat Ride – Appox 20 kilometres.  Departing directly into the Gold Coast Broadwater at Main Beach, no time wasted in the 6knot zone!

Experience some fast and fun jet boat spins and slides through the Southern Broadwater around Wavebreak Island.

Prices: From $46

Jet Boat Adventure RideAppox 35 kilometres. Experience Paradise Jet Boating’s premium “Jet boat Adventure Ride” 360° spins, high-speed drifting, power slides, beach-buzzing and other exciting manoeuvres through the beautiful waterways….it’s ‘full-on’ fun and adventure mixed with wonderful scenery and sightseeing.
