Gold Coast Helicopter 10 min Flight and Jet Boat Ride

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 116.46
2 travellers
Combine popular activities—a jet boat ride and a helicopter flight—on this single tour of the Gold Coast. With all details arranged ahead, you don't have to worry about the timing and order of activities and can just focus on the experience. On the helicopter, get spectacular aerial views on a short flight; the jet boat ride lasts about an hour and is punctuated with tricks and high-speed runs.
  • Get views of the Gold Coast from both land and water
  • A thrilling jet boat ride combines sightseeing with daredevil tricks
  • Aerial views and photo ops on a helicopter ride
  • Two activities arranged in perfect timing for a seamless experience
What to Expect
Head for the departure point of your jet boat ride—a convenient spot in Surfers Paradise. Step aboard the boat and take off to zoom around the waterways of the Gold Coast, past mansions, beaches, and sandbanks. Hold on to your seat through a series of daredevil maneuvers and get views of landmarks, such as Wave Break Island and South Stradbroke Island.  Next up is your helicopter ride, arranged in perfect timing right after your jet boat ride. Take off and listen to a guide's commentary while flying over Main Beach, Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach, Royal Pines, and Jupiters Casino.

This was pretty much the best activity I did during my time in Australia. Nathan is a brilliant driver and gives you a detailed rundown of what to expect (mainly how wet you'll get!) The helicopter was AMAZING, wished it went on for longer!

What a great combo!! We got a jetboat ride and helicopter flight done before we even had lunch. Our driver Toby was a demon behind the wheel! When he says you'll get wet, take him seriously! You will get drenched. Great skill but very safety conscious. And we loved the music!

We left the wharf and had an adventurous jet boat ride in the broadwater, with spins and playing in the waves off waverbreak island. It was safe but at the same time exhillirating. We then got off at Marina Mirage and together with my 8year old son flew in a Robinson 44

They are separate companies but work together well. They dropped us off at the end of the boat ride to the helicopter place. Saw some great views from the helicopter. The spins on the jet boat were awesome. My son is 11 and had a great time.

I booked a 55 min jet boat ride + 10 min helicopter flight. Jet boat ride ended already after 35 min ! The ride itself is fun but not the money worth especially when cut of 40% of time. Helicopter also did not fly full 10 min.......

hello cy2106, We are sorry you felt this way with your experience. the jet boat Heli tour package includes our vessel dropping you at the heliport on the way back which saves you from finding your own way to the heliport which usually means you miss the 5 min return river part of the journey. The 10 min helicopter flight is set flight path and it takes 10 min to complete the circuit. We would like to discuss further why this has happened to you if you could contact our office on 55388890 or email info@jetboatextreme.com.au kind regards kegan
