We are actually the only jet boating company permitted to access the protected Moreton Bay Marine Park, providing you with an exclusive adventure through more scenic and secluded areas of the Broadwater and the opportunity to view Wallabies, Dolphins and other wildlife.

We also provide FREE return transfers aboard our unique, 10 seat, open air, stretch “Super Jeep”, one of only 2 vehicles of it’s kind in Australia. We cruise along Surfers Paradise Esplanade enjoying the iconic views of the beachfront and high rise lined streets...then through Main Beach’s exclusive Tedder Avenue.
