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.
Awesome way to see the city from a different perspective
Kirsten Kearsley 10 months 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.

Well organised entry and embarking
Aashish Baweja 1 year 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.

Great value for money
Angela Butler 2 years ago

Great value for money. Found the Staff very friendly and helpful. We went for afternoon nibbles they were lovely with cheese and crackers, nuts and fresh fruit., the cruise was perfect for young and old with aircon inside seating downstairs and outside seating on the top.

A most enjoyable trip
Trish Alomes 2 years ago

A most enjoyable trip. Staff courteous and helpful and left on time and got back on time. Toilets were clean and snacks adequate. I would have liked to see the bar open and serving cold drinks as well as water. Will use your company again. I will certainly use the voucher in the near future.

Overall was a great cruise however a little more cheese sliced rather than cubed for snacks would have been easier with crackers but still a great day and we all enjoyed i
