We chose this tour as we have a toddler & thought he would enjoy the novelty. My husband had never been on a tour of the GC before so I thought it would be good for him to. From the time the we met the tour guide we knew this was not going to be good. He was loud, obnoxious... More

Both my kids like the part where they can steer the vehicle in the sea. They simply love it。We like the route taken as it is very scenic.

We decided to try this out for a laugh and I'm glad we did. It was a lot of fun. We traveled around the Gold Coast in the duck and listened to the commentary along the way. It was a great way to spend an hour looking at all the different places along the waterways of surfers

This was our second trip on the aqua duck. The kids loved it so much when we went on it last year, so when we came back to QLD, it was the first thing they begged to do. Our first trip was more exciting, as the driver let the children have a turn behind the wheel. They didn't offer that... More

The Aquaduck was a fun way to see the sights of Surfers Paradise and to get a different view of things from the water and not just on the roads. My five year old son loved having a go at driving the Duck on the water! All in all it's a great touristy thing to do and the 'Captain' and... More

My dad is 60 and loves boat trips and my son is 2 and can't sit still so finding something to suit everyone looked tough until I discovered Aquaduck. It was a great tour combining land and water experiences which broke up the time for my toddler. He had space to wriggle around when on land, and, when on water,... More

Went on today as a family and had alot of fun! Ride can be a bit bumpy but kids just thought it was like a ride on the theme parks! Price for family is $95 for 2 adults/2 children but look around as cheapest offered was $70. Driver was very funny and would be happy to go again next holiday.

We booked the Aqua Duck as the Quacker Duck was closed. We found the staff really nice. The driver Dennis was a hoot - he just loved kiwis. Danielle gave us very informative information as well as Dennis. I was really nervous about going on the Aqua Duck because I have a gammy leg and was unsure about getting up... More

I'm not a fan of this type of tour but my son wanted to do it. It was actually pretty good. Gives you some good information on the surfers paradise area. Seeing all the homes from the water was really interesting. The kids get to drive it too. My son loved that. Worth doing when you first arrive in town,... More
