Overview
Airlie Beach is a popular basecamp for visiting the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef, but there are plenty of opportunities for adventure activities without leaving town. This 30-minute jet boat ride will get your adrenaline soaring, as you zoom past the glitzy marina; perform daring turns, drifts and power stops; and enjoy magnificent views of the Whitsundays as you cruise around Pioneer Bay.
What to Expect
Meet your driver at your Airlie Beach hotel around 30 minutes before your tour departure time, and relax on the short drive to Abell Point Marina. After a safety briefing, it’s time to set sail, so zip up your lifejacket and hop aboard the 380hp jet boat.

Hold on tight as you zip along the coast out and speed out across Pioneer Bay. Listen to the on-board commentary as you pass the glitzy seafront mansions, look out over the distant Whitsundays islands and even spy a shipwreck along the shore. Then, feel a surge of adrenaline as your expert pilot performs daring 180- and 360-degree spins, drifts and power brake stops. Don’t forget to smile – souvenirs photos will be available to download after the tour!

After 30 minutes of non-stop fun, look out for wildlife such as sea turtles, dugongs, and stingrays, as you glide back to shore. Back on dry land, your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
