Gold Coast Helitours offer their services not only for scenic flights, but also service filmmakers wanting to get aerial filming, firefighters, skydivers and also people who prefer to travel in style.

jetboats
Paradise Jetboating
If you’re in the mood for something a little more extreme, but closer to the ground, you can’t go past Paradise Jetboating. Enjoy the sights and salt spray of the Broadwater, as you zoom through it at speeds of up to almost 80km/hr aboard a World Class Jet Boat. Starting at the local Marina, sit back as your skipper takes you pastMarina Mirage and Palazzo Versace Hotel and up towards Sea World, alluring you into a false sense of calm. However, before you know it, you’ll be whirring and whirling at high speeds, caching air above the sea. With all the thrills and spills you could ask for in one Broadwater adventure, look no further than Paradise Jetboating!

skywalk
Tamborine Forest Skywalk
Head inland to take in the breathtaking views at the Tamborine Forest Skywalk. After getting among the Gold Coast hinterland’s forest walks on ground-level, why not take things up a level? The serenity doesn’t get much better than it does up here above the Tamborine forest canopies. Walk along the skywalk at your leisure and listen for the sounds of nature and view untouched landscapes that continue as far as the eye can see. It’s easy to forget that so much peace and tranquility can be found in only an hour’s drive out of the bustling metro area of the Gold Coast.

With the open ocean as your oyster, enjoy the rhythmic rocking and fresh ocean mist from the very front of the boat, or for a calmer ride, sit up top and take in the view. It won’t be long until the Spirit of the Gold Coast presents you with the majestic creatures you hopped on board to see. Soak in the sun and sea as humpback whales swim and play around you, while the Spirit of the Gold Coast’s friendly staff cater to your needs and questions.
