Gold Coast Jet Boat Ride from Main Beach

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Board your jet boat at Mariners Cove Marina. Your captain provides a safety briefing and necessary equipment before putting your boat in gear for a breathtaking ride with Gold Coast sightseeing highlights.

    The jet boat can easily reach speeds of up to 40 knots (almost 50 mph, or 80 kph), with your captain expertly performing tricks such as 360-degree spins, power slides, high-speed drifting and other exciting maneuvers along the scenic waterways of the Broadwater.

    Part of the fun is getting wet, so dress accordingly and enjoy the cool breezes and water splashes. Secure storage is provided for your belongings at the office, and an onboard camera captures photos that you can purchase afterward.

    Slow down to check out landmarks like the Southport Yacht Club, Marina Mirage, Palazzo Versace Hotel, Seaworld, Southport Seaway, Runaway Bay and Paradise Point. Note the waterfront mansions of ritzy Sovereign Island and admire the natural beauty of Moreton Bay Marine Park where dolphins, wallabies and abundant birdlife live. Glide by mangrove forests on Crab Island, Ephraim Island and South Stradbroke Island.

    While other jet boat operators turn around at Wavebreak Island, your jet boat tour continues for another 18 miles (30km), making it a more comprehensive 55-minute ride.
