Jetboat Extreme is not something to look past, and if you're a thrill seeker you definitely won't be disappointed. Kegan was fantastic and a very accomodating leader, he showed us the... More

This was fun but not really as extreme as expected. One lady as soon as we got on promptly said she got seasick-DO NOT GO JET BOATING IF YOU GET SEASICK!!! Our driver Delcan was great, and allowed her to hop off at a jetty, but i felt as though we were missing out on some time due to this.

Crazy boat ride. Great excitement and a good laugh. Especially when you get wet. Sizzling speed and bone twisting turns. What's not to like!

Great fun. Favourite part of the holiday for our 10yo. (Even beating Australia Zoo). Our 5yo wasnt too keen on the spins but enjoyed it mostly. Driver (Declan) was great fun (and cute too mummas) and wasnt too scary like other jet boats Ive been on. Great family fun.

There was a minor hiccup over the booking time (presumably as in August not all trips can be counted on to operate). However, we had a great time - this was the second time we have used Jetboat Extreme. The big advantage is that it leaves from right in Surfers Paradise, which eliminates the need to drive, find parking, etc.... More

This is a great way to see the waterways of Surfers, and some of the impressive real estate that lines them. The ride is fun, & the staff are friendly. But having recently experienced Huka Jet in Taupo, NZ, the Surfers ride was tame! For many people it'll be OK but not hugely thrilling I'm afraid. If you don't mind... More

Not as high action as I thought it would be. Our kids had fun though. We all had a good time, but nothing I would be excited about for next time.

was a great experience as my boyfriend and myself love adventures. the only negative thing was that I booked the day before for 11am. Then I received an email saying that 11am is fully booked and that they rescheduled for 10am. We didn't have any plans, so it was ok. But just weird that I could book 11am even though... More
