Meet your jet boat at Mariners Cove Marina where your captain provides a safety briefing and equipment. Then step into your boat and get ready for breathtaking fun as the engine roars to life.

Hang on as your jet boat quickly reaches speeds of up to 40 knots (almost 50 mph, or 80 kph). Your captain expertly executes 360-degree spins, power slides, high-speed drifting, beach-buzzing and other exciting maneuvers you've probably never heard of along the scenic waterways of the Gold Coast Broadwater.

While other rides turn around at Wavebreak Island, your boat continues for another 18 miles (30km). Along the way, see sights such as the Southport Yacht Club, Marina Mirage, Palazzo Versace Hotel, Seaworld, Southport Seaway, Runaway Bay and Paradise Point. Glide through quieter areas of the northern Broadwater, passing mangrove forests on Crab Island, Ephraim Island and South Stradbroke Island. Check out the waterfront mansions of ritzy Sovereign Island and admire the natural beauty of Moreton Bay Marine Park which is known for dolphins, wallabies and abundant birdlife.

Your expert captain provides a wild ride, with spins that send ocean spray flying. Part of the fun is getting wet, so dress accordingly and enjoy the cooling breeze and water. An onboard camera captures your ride so that you have the option to take home a memento of your adventure.

At the office on shore, secure storage is provided for your belongings along with a comfortable waiting area where you can relax before or after your ride.

After a 55-minute ride, return to the marina where your tour ends.
