Great day, nice and calm for a jet boat ride! Would do this again for sure! Dan was an awesome driver, going really close to the shore and heaps of 360s! A must do when on the Gold Coast!

“A Ride To Remember”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I've wanted to do this for as long as I could remember but the times that I was down at the coast, I didn't have any company so I skipped it.

Last weekend I was in the Gold Coast and my partner was with me. Asked if he would like to do it and he said yes so I quickly made some enquiries through e-mail and ended up booking through e-mail with Lisa's assistance.

On the day of our ride, Dan was our driver. He is a nice and funny guy but definitely a very responsible and safe driver too. For him, safety is priority and he always made sure that everyone's alright after a 360 spin.

Besides that, Dan was also very informative. He would stop at spots and tell us about the properties and things that we were looking at.

A few tips for those who are interested to try this out:

1) Use the free shuttle if they do pick-up and drop-off at your hotel. E-mail or call them before booking and they will be able to let you know if your hotel is included on their shuttle list. This really makes it a fun and relaxing day without the need for you to drive.

2) Bring your sunglasses or get some cheap ones just for the ride because water would get into your eyes. I didn't bring any sunnies so my eyes were burning a little after a few splashes of salt water :P

3) You may want to wear some flip flops/thongs/sandals instead of shoes because your shoes would get drenched. But if you don't mind, trainers are perfectly fine. Just no heels or leather shoes etc.

4) Bring a towel or a change of clothes if you want. They provide containers for you to put your stuff in and it's locked up in their office and under full surveillance.

5) If you find a coupon in the Hello Gold Coast booklet, use it. That's a good discount :)

Last but not least, please check in 30 minutes before your ride and always stay safe even while having fun.

“Must Ride on This!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Was great to be picked up and dropped back from our resort in a stretched Jeep. Safety instructions were easily understandable. Awesome driver who was Dan with 360 turns and other boat handling moves to thrill you. Will defiantly come back again soon! :-)

“Woww what a ride”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Went for the best jet boat ride so far. We have been on quite a few but this gave us our best (and wettest) ride so far. Took us on so many 360 spins and the best wet spray ever.
