See the best of the Gold Coast in one of the most pleasantly satisfying ways possible - book a Gold Coast river cruise today!

We had so much fun with the sightseeing cruise for two hours, the oldies get to seat in an airconditioned area while others had fun upstairs at the deck. Drinks and chips can also be purchased on board so no one gets hungry. It was informative as well, and very entertaining!
Sea World Afternoon Sightseeing Cruise was so much fun, nice activity with family and friends.

The view is really good. It is worth money you could have a river and city view from the Gold Coast. Nice weather and a relaxed atmosphere.
Ming Ruan 1 month ago

My friend and I booked separately via Experience Oz. The staff of the cruise company are really nice and friendly. We spent a good day during sunset time. The view is really good, and the food is fresh. We ordered a cheese plate and beers. The cheese plate is tasting good. I love the dry fruit and olives. Recommend!

Fantastic, great boat, wonderful way to explore the GC.
Ellie Murray 2 months ago

We did the afternoon cruise. This was a wonderful afternoon. The boat was amazing, the staff made you feel welcomed and it was a really joyful experience. Drinking on the deck while taking in the beautiful waters of the GC. We will definitely do this again.

Awesome way to see the city from a different perspective
Kirsten Kearsley 1 year ago

Awesome way to see the city from a different perspective. Would definitely recommend this boat as it had air conditioning and a fully stocked bar to make the trip even more comfortable. Great way to get to SeaWorld for the day too and only 5 min walk from the Hilton.

It's an easy and breezy ride
Hasnar Hashim 1 year ago

It's an easy and breezy ride. The crew are nice and friendly. For a lovely cruise with good commentary, this is the best value for money there is. Complimentary morning drinks and snacks or buy something more to your taste at the bar. Relaxing 90mins on the water.

Well organised entry and embarking
Aashish Baweja 2 years ago

Well organised entry and embarking. The views were beautiful as we started in the late afternoon and got better as the sun started setting. I wished I could remain on the boat as long as the sun was up. The only shortcoming was the provision of snacks which were simply kept on counters with people grabbing more than what they paid for. By the time I got to the counter, they ran out. My friend and I hadn't had a heavy lunch and there wasn't food available on the boat.

A great and comfortable way to explore the waterways and see the spectacular skyline of Gold Coast
Kirstyn Malcolm 2 years ago

A great and comfortable way to explore the waterways and see the spectacular skyline of Gold Coast. The food was good and the cruise was suitable for families, couples and friends. The narration while informative was repetitive and quite sparse, but overall a great experience.

A last minute booking
Tracy Vantomme 2 years ago

A last minute booking, it’s was really easy online. A bottle of bubbles on the top deck and fantastic views of the waterways on the Gold Coast. Definitely recommended! Friendly staff and plenty of room for all to have a great view. Now looking for our next experience.

We had such a fantastic time
Sharni-Lee Christopher 2 years ago

We had such a fantastic time! Such great value for money and we got to see some things you wouldn’t see just walking around the Gold Coast, the ladies on board were amazing and even threw a few jokes in which were of great value. Would love to go on one of the night cruises! So we will be back. Thank you!

Great cruise for the price
Noel Anderson 2 years ago

Great cruise for the price. It took me and partner around the canals and along the main river and finally to Sea World. The ride is a good time to come down from the grassy top deck and into the lower aircon deck for some drinks. The complimentary fruit was nice and the snacks are some peanuts, crackers and cheese.
