“FUN FUN FUN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This was our 2nd time with these guys, still as good the 2nd time. If you are wondering about doing it, just jump right in, you wont regret it. Photo included is a bonus, most others of this type of activity charge extra for them.

“Fun thing for an afternoon in the sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

I thought Jetboat Extreme was a very fun filled hour to spend. You get taken through the rivers around Surfers and into the Southport Broadwater, and on your trip the guide tells you facts about the local area. Then in the more open space of the Broadwater its spins galore. You get wet so dont wear anything you wouldnt be comfortable getting soaked! (They offer jackets though). They stop to take a picture of you and your mates once you've got messy wet hair! I do think it helps if the boat you are on has a lively group to get excited with, and yes, it is an activity that a LOT of places around the world offer but it was in the sun, in the Gold Coast, in Australia, so I had a great time :)

“Very average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Yes you get wet -- yes you see Surfers from a different angle but on the adrenaline scale of zero to ten it rates a pretty tame five.
