It's the most fun and exciting adventure thrill jetboat ride on the Gold Coast. Experience the thrill, as they deliver speeds of over 80 kph with the 650 hp twin jet-power turbo engines. The tour includes 55 minutes of thrill, fun and adventure jet boating with the infamous 360 degree spins and water slides, power-break stops, sweeping fish tails and wild wave riding. Their boats are guaranteed to deliver all the fun you can handle! The only complete Jet boat Experience in the Heart of Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast Australia.

Although we had our original booking canceled due to not having enough people, the folks gave us a free photoas compensation - thus was a good start and I thought was professional.

Then came the ride - OMG... Wasn't that an awesome experience... WOW.....

It's a must do for anyone holidaying in Gold Coast..

What an awesome awesome thing to do, We had Khobi as our driver and he was fabulous, with only 5 people on our trip we did some pretty hair raising 360's. It was a fabulous way to see the waterways of Surfers Paradise , it is truly a value for money experience would recommend it to anyone..

Got tickets for this attraction through a package deal with the hotel we were staying at and I am so glad we did. This is fantastic! Our driver Lucas was professional, funny and safe. The ride goes for 55 minutes which flies past! It is everything you expect a jet boat ride to be and more. I recommend wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from the splash and be aware that you get very wet. We absolutely loved it and highly recommend to anyone considering doing it.

You just have to take this ride, it was amazing. Our 9 year old said it was better than the theme parks. Richie's knowledge of the area was fantastic and he always ensured that we were ok and enjoying the ride. The 360 spins were amazing, but be prepared to get wet, all part of the fun.

1. Get in
2. Sit down
3. Shut up (it's ok to scream)
4. Hold on
Visiting from America, I just HAD TO do this. Sat right behind our captain, Lucas, who was not only an excellent driver/tour guide, but very friendly and personable as well. For those that are curious, max speeds are about 76 kph, 48 mph, or 40 knots...whichever measurement you're familiar with. Sat right behind Lucas, ducked when he ducked (water spray), and held on for dear life lol. Strongly recommend sunglasses when you ride as the salt spray can be an irritant. If you crave being soaked, then volunteer for the rear-most seating. I honestly thought this was a very very good value for the money. With everyday living so expensive 'down under' this was well worth the single price of admission, and the family deals are even more of a bargain.
Thank you, Jetboat Extreme, this redefines a "white knuckle" experience!
