What you need to know

Zip around the canals of Surfers Paradise aboard one of Gold Coast Watersports' advanced Yamaha jet skis for an exciting way to see the region. On this River Run you and a friend can double on these technologically advanced jet skis for an adventure like no other. With a mix between slow zones and full throttle zones this is perfect for beginners or those wanting a quick fix.

First you will start with a full briefing and then your 30mins on the water. A great water activity for beginners and non-swimmers as life jackets and guidance are both provided by the team. All equipment is supplied, all you're asked to bring is your thirst for adventure, clothes that can get wet and sun safety gear.

With dual controlled throttles, these jet skis are the safest on the market and will provide heaps of fun for everyone to enjoy, even kids as young as 7. Children above the age of 7 are suitable to ride, however, they must be accompanied by an adult, solo riders must be 16 and riders under 18 years must have a signed waiver from a parent or guardian.
