What you can expect

One of the Gold Coast's most popular tours, the Aquaduck in Surfers Paradise allows you to discover the Gold Coast by land and sea without even leaving your seat. Your Aquaduck journey will begin in the heart of Surfers Paradise, taking in views of the famous, golden Gold Coast beaches while waddling along the beachfront. The Aquaduck tour then heads past the 5 star resorts of Palazzo Versace and the Sheraton Mirage before ducking straight into the magnificent Broadwater at the Spit where the water-borne portion of the tour begins. The vehicle then "transforms" into a boat as the Aquaduck goes harbour cruising, taking in the sights of Seaworld, Marina Mirage, Australia Fair, Mariners Cove, The Yacht Club, fabulous millionaires homes, canals and more from the water. With entertaining, fun commentary on all the highlights and the ability to see the best of the Gold Coast from all available angles, the Aquaduck is one of Surfers Paradise's true "must do experiences" - plus, don't forget kids get to drive and receive their FREE Captain Aquaduck license certificate.

Highly recommend this tour on the AquaDuck. We all loved it!!

Highly recommend this tour on the AquaDuck. We all loved it!! It was our first time doing this tour. This is the original of its kind so it was great to support the business. Our daughter got to drive the boat and got a certificate for doing it. She loved it. It was really cute for all the kids. Even though it only goes for an hour, the tour guide was able to show us around some of the locations in the area, both on land and on water. We would definitely do this tour again. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves on this tour.

We finally went on the Aquaduck and really enjoyed it.

After living on the Gold Coast for 5 years, we finally went on the Aquaduck. My husband, 3 children and I all enjoyed the experience. The transition from driving to floating was fun. We learned a lot about the Gold Coast that we had not heard before. Highly recommend.

An all-round fun and entertaining way to see the sights.

Not our first visit and won't be our last. A lovely way to spend Sunday morning on the Gold Coast! We brought others with us this time and they loved it as much as we did. A great way to finish our holiday time with family. Loved the jokes along the way. :)
