This ride is expensive on Viator and is cheap onsite. And there is no rush u can just go there and book the ride as per your convenience. Thrilling and exciting and it was quiet good over there on water.u do get wet in this ride so be prepared. It gives u adrenaline rush. Ur jet board rider will guide u over each and every point on ride.

It was a treat for my birthday and was great. Be warned though, accept the offer of a spray jacket, you will get wet. Excellent ride, friendly staff, informative driver and a fun way to spend part of my birthday.

I went to gold coast with my sister and booked for this ride. this was our first time and we were super excited! On that day, at sharp 3pm , we jump into the boat and the driver brief us with a few instruction. He was a humorous guy friendly and nice. During the ride, he spin 360 degree for more than 5 times and it was sooooo fun!!! The whole ride was satisfactory and we will try it again if we go there again :

The ride itself was awesome and the man who drove the boat was nice and funny though I have to take points off due to the rudeness and unhelpfulness of the lady who greeted us at the doc. Playing on her phone and ignoring the fact that we were there, we felt like an inconvenience for her.

My family dad, mom, and 2 daughters ages 20 and 25 really enjoyed this activity. Our driver was Declan, who clearly enjoys what he does and really gave us a thrilling ride. He stopped occasionally to show us points of interest but kept things moving along. We got thoroughly soaked and got some great video/images on our GoPro, Our apologies to our ride mates...we were those loud and crazy Americans who were laughing and screaming throughout the ride. The rest of the passengers were strangely quiet, probably in an effort to maintain their dignity. We obviously don't care about the fact that we were the only ones expressing ourselves. Again, an absolute blast!!!

It was loads of fun, the driver explained what he was going to do well, he made general conversation with all passangers and made sure everyone was safe, happy and getting the best value out of the ride as we could.
