Join this exclusive two hour Gold Coast lunch cruise departing from a convenient point in the heart of the Gold Coast that provides you with a delicious lunch with fresh local trawler prawns, takes you through the extensive Surfers Paradise canal system and then out onto the Southport Broadwater to soak in some beautiful views of the coast's skyline. Sit back and enjoy your lunch, perhaps with a drink from the fully-licensed bar onboard, and soak in both the sunshine from the spacious deck as well as the informative commentary of the many surrounding highlights including the homes of the rich and famous. You'll be taken past many iconic regional locations such as Sea World Theme Park, Marina Mirage Shopping Centre, the glamorous Palazzo Versace Hotel and much more for a great sightseeing experience.

We are up from Kempsey NSW and went on our lunch cruise at the Gold Coast with u guys on 1/9/23. Great food, great staff, and a wonderful boat, so what could go wrong? Had a wonderful time thank you to all 😊😊😊

It was so relaxing and awesome. The staff was absolutely wonderful, and the food was absolutely great as well as the cocktails lol. My husband and I had a marvellous time, thank you. We came up from the mid-north coast to go on the lunch cruise with u guys on 1/9/23 and it was magnificent 👌

Great Staff, lovely food, great views and great commentary.

Loved the cruise. The staff were amazing. Very friendly and accommodating. The food was amazing loved the king prawns! Having both the seating area downstairs for the initial part and then having the upstairs area to relax and enjoy the scenery in. Expert commentary from the captain as you make your way back to the dock, beautiful views seeing all the areas you might not normally see if you weren't on a boat! Would definitely recommend it!
