      Wonder adventure at sea in the Gold Coast
      One of the best activities we’ve had for today. It was really fun doing donuts by the jet boat. Mr frenchy was really kind and smiled most of the time. He rode the boat in a professional way. I really thank him for that nice journey.

      Loved every minute from start to finish. Our driver Toby took good care of us - very entertaining and knowledgeable. Beautiful scenery to enjoy and many fun 360 spins on the water. Recommend wearing the raincoat they offer - still got wet but this helped. Highly recommend

      Great thrill ride.
      Did this jet boat tour with a group of friends. Absolutely fantastic. A great thrill and the captain was brilliant throughout. Would definitely recommend if you like something with a bit of high speed.

      So much family fun thrills and adventure ! Highly recommended! A big thank you to the staff. Especially to Toby ( jet boat driver) and the New Zealand line dancer ( little joke) as they assisted my mum on/off boat and provided great entertainment and excitement.

    I must admit, although my kids really enjoyed this, I didn't think this would be as good as it really was!

    Jetboat Staff were super helpful and professional.

    Steve was our driver and was super friendly, knowledgeable, whilst keeping the jokes and laughs coming!

    The jetboat on it's own was great fun but adding a chopper ride was the icing on the cake!

    Although the chopper ride was only 10 minutes, you get to see the GC from a whole new perspective and was really impressive.

    Highly recommend this combo through Jetboat Extreme!

    My nephew and I spent our shared birthday jetboating and flying in the helicopter. Adam who was the driver of the jetboat was absolutely amazing, he had a fantastic sense of humour, welcomed all and made the experience a blast. The jetboat ride itself was so fun and we all loved it. We did come back a tad wet and with salty hair but the BIGGEST of smiles on our faces. Anthony the helicopter staff member was truly amazing with his warm engaging personality and helpful nature. We had such beautiful views and Spencer our pilot shared his knowledge of the GC with us as we toured around. A must do when you visit the GC. Simply fabulous.

    Both rides were a lot of fun.

    Adam, the jet boat pilot is a laugh and makes you feel at ease. The helicopter ride gave great views of Surfers.

    Thoroughly enjoyable and definitely worth it. Have a go!

    The Jet boat experience was fantastic and will definitely be doing it again. Felt very safe and loved getting wet 🤣.
    The helicopter ride was great and it was my first time. Would recommend but be aware. You get jet boat in surfers then are dropped off by seaworld and have to find your own way back to surfers

    Awesome!! We had Frankie as our driver of the jet boat! He was fantastic!! He talked to us during the ride & warned us when he did the spins. Highly recommend doing this. You will get wet. They supply a coat to wear, so wear it. Take your shoes off as well. They provide water proof bags to put your stuff in. You want regret it. The helicopter flight was awesome to. I highly recommend doing this as well. The 10 minutes up there is all you need. They where very friendly, & had towels ready for us when we arrived, as they knew we would be a little wet. They have lockers there to put your things in before your flight. You can take your phones on the flight. Do this as well!!!! You will not regret it!!!

    We had a wonderful time flying the helicopter on the 2nd October 2023 at 1.30pm with Gold Coast Helicopter Tours from Marina Mirage. My 3 kids and I really enjoyed it. The crew and staff and our pilot were most helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Weather was nice. We were lucky to see a big Whale jumping around, thanks to our pilot’s sharp eye pointing it out to all passengers on board. 15 minute flight was truly amazing. Our first time and we are so glad we did it. Thank You.

    What an awesome experience!
    I thought our 9 year old would be a little more afraid but he loved it so much and I think that’s down to our skipper (Krystal) who made him feel at ease and made sure he enjoyed it. There was a you get boy on board too who looked like he was also having a blast.
    Lots of spins and drifting, with good music and great tour guide.

    Thankyou for an awesome time, we will definitely be recommending this to our friends and followers on our blog!
