Video: JetSkiShop’s PWC Week-Long Adventure to Hamilton Island


As of this writing, it’s 38-degree outside of The Watercraft Journal offices. And with a week left to Christmas, we’re still a ways away from de-winterizing our skis and venturing into the water. That is why this video from our friend James Tod at the is so delightfully painful. We loved watching this group of adventuring jet ski enthusiasts tour Australia’s picturesque Hamilton Island, but also really, really resented those guys. Seasonal sports suck.

The JetSkiShop has made a name for themselves – in addition to being Australia’s “Number 1 jet ski shop” for Honda, Sea-Doo, Kawasaki, Yamaha WaveRunners – by conducting these monthly trips throughout the Gold Coast. Located in Ashmore, Queensland, the JetSkiShop and staff recently added new Yamaha WaveRunners to its showroom floor (as seen above).

“This was our trip last year,” James wrote us. “I can’t wait to get in the water for this [next] year’s trip!” The week-long trip to the Whitsundays in the Great Barrier Reef, took this group through some of the most pristine riding locations imaginable. “We were based on Hamilton Island for the week. Each day we made a trip around the tropical waters, which included watching migrating whales with their calves. The week’s onshore activities featured bonfire castaway night on a deserted island, some off-road touring and, of course, lots of jet skiing.
