For kids 8 years or older, why not book a parasailing adventure. Accompanied by you or another adult, your child can take to the skies in this amazing and memorable experience. One of the closest experiences to flying, they will never forget the experience of floating through the air and seeing the Gold Coast from a bird’s eye view.

Jet Ski Safari

For something special, why not book an amazing jet ski safari. You can explore the beautiful waterways of the Gold Coast on the back of a Yamaha jet ski complete with dual controlled throttle. Safe, but exhilarating, our tours explore South Stradbroke Island, the Sovereign Islands and more. Please note the minimum age to ride with an adult is 8 years of age, however their feet must be able to fit flat in the footwell. You must be 16 years of age to ride on your own and 18 years of age to have a passenger.


For kids 12 years or older, you can’t go past flyboarding. A fly board has a hose connected to a jet ski which propels through air and water. It’s a diving, flying, power house of pure heart-pounding fun. During the experience, your kid will learn how to taxi through the water, turn, dive and fly high.
