Jet skiing

Jet skiing is the coolest water sport since surfing!

Our Gold Coast water playground, the ocean, Broadwater and waterways, is the best jet ski playground in the world, but let's not forget Gold Coast jet ski etiquette - fun but fair.

Consider the needs of everyone

Complaints about noise from jet skis are increasing. Not all are justified, but some such as early morning noise close to houses and units are.

So let's consider the needs of everyone, jet skiers and residents, so we can have fun and live in harmony.

Please remember jet skiing should be fun but fair for everyone.

Fun but fair means:

Unless these noise issues are resolved voluntarily, City of Gold Coast will have no option but to introduce legislation, with infringement penalties.

Visit Maritime Safety Queensland for details of restricted areas for operating personal water craft (PWC).
