Paradise Jetboating

Mariners Cove Marina, Main Beach QLD 4217

Australia’s most exciting Jet Boat ride’™… The Gold Coast is the adventure capital of Australia and Jet boating is the new, must do activity for the whole family! Experience the ultimate dose of extreme adrenaline packed adventure on your Surfers Paradise jet boat ride including extreme 360* spins, awesome wake surfing, high speed drifting and incredible ‘Beach Buzzing’. “It’s more than just a thrill ride...It’s an adventure”

Your exciting thrill ride on the beautiful Gold Coast Broadwater is action packed full of incredible high speed slides and drifts, exciting 360* spins, awesome beach buzzing and nose offs. Your adventure takes you around Wavebreak Island, past the mansions of Sovereign Island and weaving through the mangrove channels of the Aldershots. Then, buzzing the beaches and shallows of South Stradbroke Island past Sea World and Palazzo Versace all the way home.

Your extreme adventure takes place on one of the safest and most advanced jet boats operating on the Gold Coast. Powered by either a V8 race tuned, big block 502 Chevy or a high performance, turbo charged 500hp ‘new age’ diesel engine. Our boats are FAST, manoeuvrable and agile, allowing us to do all of the wicked spins, exciting fish tails and of course our famous adrenalin pumping 360* spins!

Paradise Jet Boating is the only jet boat company departing from Main Beach directly into the Broadwater freestyle area. Our competitors need to travel through the speed restricted zone from Surfers, wasting over 15 minutes of their trip at 6knots. This allows us the extra time needed to reach the more secluded and interesting areas of the Broadwater...providing More Fun and Better Value.

We are actually the only jet boating company permitted to access the protected Moreton Bay Marine Park, providing you with an exclusive adventure through more scenic and secluded areas of the Broadwater and the opportunity to view Wallabies, Dolphins and other wildlife.

We also provide FREE return transfers aboard our unique, 10 seat, open air, stretch “Super Jeep”, one of only 2 vehicles of it’s kind in Australia. We cruise along Surfers Paradise Esplanade enjoying the iconic views of the beachfront and high rise lined streets...then through Main Beach’s exclusive Tedder Avenue. Lined with fashionable boutiques and alfresco dining, this is a hot spot for local socialites and visiting celebrities. That’s a second tour free!
