Ocean Extreme Ride Departing Lake Macquarie
Leaving Lake Macquarie, we blast into the ocean for a 60-minute experience of surfing waves, exploring sea caves and much more!
Not for the faint-hearted and definitely a must-do experience. On this ride, we start within Lake Macquarie before cruising out through the Swansea channel before going under the Swansea bridge and heading out to the ocean, crossing the bar. Now it’s time to get serious as we check out the surf at either Blacksmiths Beach or Caves Beach depending on weather and sea conditions, and we’ll rip it up on the waves doing our usual spins and power brake dives, riding a few waves too.
Ocean Extreme rides departing Lake Macquarie, are offered nearly every weekend & weekday (upon request) year round

JetBuzz promises you action-packed thrills aboard our purpose-built state-of-the-art ocean-going adventure vessel (Wild Thing), where our licensed staff will ensure your fun, enjoyment, and safety! Wild Thing was designed and built in Australia with the ocean in mind, and is designed to cut through chop, spin, and surf on waves. It’s without question one of, if not the best, jet boat adventure vessels in Australia.
Wild Thing, our jet boat is 9.5 metres in length has a beam of 3.2 metres. It is powered by twin six-litre Cummins Turbo Diesel engines coupled to two Hamilton 292 jet propulsion units, pumping a massive 1,200 litres of water through the jets each second and delivering an awesome 530 KW (750 horsepower) to give you the adventure of a lifetime. This vessel fully loaded can reach a speed of 42 knots, more than enough to satisfy those looking for speed and an adrenaline rush.
It is best to wear comfortable clothing that you won’t mind getting a bit wet! When it’s cooler weather make sure you bring a jumper to keep you warm. We can provide waterproof spray jackets to all jet boaters, however, there’s no guarantee you will stay dry so bring a change of clothes if you have fancy dinner plans. Footwear is recommended (flip flops/sandals are fine). For the ladies, flat shoes are best!
Yes… BUT we can provide waterproof ponchos to, you may still get wet but not as much. Every ride is different according to the weather conditions from a mild spray to big splashes. If you want to stay on the dryer side, we suggest you sit towards the front of the boat. Our office staff can look after your valuables while you are on the ride.
