Fantastic experience jetting around the Gold Coast - so much fun and very exhilarating!! Stevo was an amazing driver, we did lots of 360 degree spins and fast zig zagging through the water. Stevo also gave us some facts about the Gold Coast at different locations during the boat ride! Highly recommend if you are a thrill seeker! Wear sun cream and (cheap) sunglasses though as the salt will get on your skin and water will go in your face!

Amazing fun! I think I laughed the whole journey. They aren’t wrong when they say you’ll get wet, we got soaked to the skin so wear something you don’t mind getting wet, and don’t arrange to go anywhere afterwards!
