Meet the Operator

Join this exclusive two hour Gold Coast lunch cruise as it departs from a central location in the heart of Surfers Paradise for an afternoon of delicious food and incredible views. Cruising through the extensive Surfers Paradise canal system that is larger than systems in both Venice and Amsterdam combined, and gliding out onto the Southport Broadwater, you'll receive extensive views of the coast's gorgeous skyline.

Sit back and enjoy your seafood and chicken lunch, perhaps with a drink from the fully-licensed onboard bar, and soak in both the sunshine from the spacious deck. To accompany the great food and atmosphere you'll receive informative commentary from the onboard skipper about the region's surrounding highlights including homes to the rich and famous. You'll be taken past many iconic regional locations such as Sea World, Marina Mirage, the glamorous Palazzo Versace and much more for a great sightseeing experience.

We do this lunch cruise every year with family. The buffet with cold meat, prawns and salad it’s absolutely delicious and cruising through the canal checking out the sights is also lovely. There is plenty to eat and fresh fruit to finish with. We definitely recommend this cruise.

Well organised! with designated tables & table by table buffet line. Lovely friendly staff & relaxing enjoyable cruise loved seeing the Gold Coast from the water angle. Need to go up to the bar for your drinks and may be a small wait if not 2 bar staff on.

Very friendly staff
Cecilia Crause 10 months ago

Very friendly staff, facilities were spotless and inviting. Food was decent. A beautiful way to see al the multimillion-dollar mansions on the Gold Coast's waterways. After lunch, you are able to enjoy the sunshine and views from the roomy oven air, top deck. Amazing family outing to make some great memories.

Simone Lidgerwood 11 months ago

The staff are friendly it was a nice and relaxing cruise. I enjoyed having a look around at the top of the boat. The food was good. A little more variety with food might be good. This can be a tricky thing to cater for everyone. Maybe some more desserts 🧁?

Paul Grose 1 year ago

The cruise was great our table was reserved the service was good as well as the food. I would recommend this cruise to anyone. The scenery going down the river was great and the captain pointed out the places of interest. After lunch, you could go upstairs and relax with a drink.
