Make a day of it on the water in one of South Australia’s favourite and well known areas to chill out and relax. From beginners to more advanced skiers, Goolwa Jet Ski have the perfect offers.
Hire a jet ski from 15 minutes to an hour and play in their safe marked out area on the Goolwa river. This is the perfect area to practice safely, whilst friends and family watch with admiration from the riverbank! No boat licence is needed for supervised hires for unlicensed riders – this needs to be a minimum of 1 hour hire and booked 1 week in advance.
Just a note from our own experience, if you have been jet skiing before, you may find riding in this safe marked out area not the right experience for you. It’s great for beginners and to have a splash around in, but you may find yourself wanting more of a ride out in the open.
If you are looking to take a passenger along for the ride, Goolwa Jet Ski require the main rider to have a valid boat licence.
How about some jet ski lessons to build your confidence up? Goolwa Jet Ski offer these too to take your skills to the next level. And with day hire also available, you can take a ski off to your next adventure destination! Day hire is not available during school holidays or weekends.
