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.

Jet Boat Gold Coast Waterways

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.

Our Jet Boat Ride

Our premium tour, the popular 55 minute Gold Coast Jet Boat ride which we call the Broadwater Adventurecovers a distance of over 35kms. It provides more spins, slides, thrills and sightseeing than any other tour. Also, it is the only jet boating tour on the Gold Coast to access the protected Moreton Bay Marine Park. Because of this we are the most exciting and best value jet boating experience in Australia.

Paradise Jet Boating began operating in 2004 and is the original jet boating company on the Gold Coast. With 4 vessels, a capacity of 70 passengers per departure, over 800 passengers daily, we are the largest jet boat operator in Queensland. Above all, passenger safety is our priority. The design of our vessels reflect the latest developments in this area. In addition, we also provide life jackets to be worn by all of our passengers.
