That international travel would be stopped as countries closed their borders, schools and shops would close and you wouldn’t be able to have a BBQ in the park with any more than two people standing 1.5m apart. You would have called me crazy. Yet here we are, slowly emerging from the apocalyptic reality we have been living for the past few months, a reality that all too closely resembled a Hollywood blockbuster movie.
Three months ago, as the Covid-19 pandemic began to affect Australia, Paradise Jet Boating management made the difficult decision to temporarily cease all operations. In the weeks that followed, government restrictions increased meaning many more businesses had to close their doors, bringing the Gold Coast tourism and entertainment industries to a grinding halt. It has been a tough few months for businesses like ours that have lost all income. Fortunately, government initiatives have enabled us to keep our key staff employed and we have been able to use this time to improve our business operations, maintain our vessels and improve our procedures to enable us to reopen in accordance with government guidelines to ensure our passengers are kept safe while having fun on their jet boat adventure ride.
Finally, the time has come. You’re free! Free to get out of the house and start enjoying the things you love – like sunshine, fresh air, fun family activities, and outdoor adventures. With the easing of restrictions Paradise Jet Boating is pleased to announce that we have reopened on 27th June 2020, and have recommenced our award winning Gold Coast jet boat rides.
The local Gold Coast tourism industry needs your help. Covid-19 has taken its toll on the industry with predictions forecasting a slow recovery over the next few years. In light of this, we are asking all Australians to take the pledge and make a commitment to holiday here this year. The Gold Coast is Australia’s favourite holiday destination and with its great weather, world class beaches, beautiful hinterland and abundance of tours and activities on offer it’s the perfect place to spend your next holiday. While you’re here, join us for a spin on our Broadwater adventure ride and enjoy not only the thrills and excitement jet boats are famous for but also the beautiful scenery and sightseeing as we take you on a fun filled adventure ride covering 35km of the Gold Coast’s picturesque waterways.
