Here’s a bit of reality: the majority of people who are buying new watercraft are older people. Yup, dealers and manufacturers alike report that the average buyer ranges between 40-to-60 years old. And most sexagenarians aren’t big into tearing up the closed course or streaking offshore at full throttle.
So for those older enthusiasts (or even those who would like to just dial back a little and just cruise), Caloundra Jetski Hire and Safaris wants to give them a chance to enjoy Caloundra (on the Sunshine Coast in South East Queensland, Australia) with a different, more laid back “jetski experience.”
Caloundra Jetski Hire and Safaris’ City Explorer Tour is “more about taking the time to enjoy the surroundings,” according to owner Ken Jeffreys. The ride will guide a group of PWC along the tip of Bribie Island and along Bulcock Beach to Golden Beach in a 40 minute trip.
“There’s nothing better than seeing people out on paddle boards or walking along the boardwalk enjoying Caloundra,” Jeffreys continued. “People love the experience of jetskis but don’t always want that full on adrenaline blast, so this is a way where they can get that but at a slower pace.
According to a report in Sunshine Coast Daily, the new tour adds to the experiences Caloundra Jetski Hire and Safaris offer. The Pumicstone Passage has become a playground for new innovative water-based businesses including Larc About Tours, the amphibious environmental tours where the vehicle goes directly from road to water.
Jefferys concluded, “It’s an extraordinary piece of waterfront here and there’s nothing better than seeing it from the water.”
