This is a great novel way to get a glimpse of the Surfers area in a short hour drive/sail. Commentary is great with abundant facts and information on your surrounds. A few dont's on the Aqua Duck; don't sit in the front seats as you are surrounded by dark perspex and it gets very, very hot, don't sit at the... More

Through the marina and many of the canals, you get views you wouldn't normally see, with knowledgeable and entertaining... More

There were several companies offering DUKW rides, I referred to TripAdvisor to make my selection. The company was easy to locate, the tour started loading 10 minutes early & left on time. The ride on some sections of road was bouncy as the vehicle doesn’t have a suspension system, & relies on its tyres. The tour proceeded along the foreshore... More

The 'Aquaduck' is a vehicle which operates on both land and water, it provides a brief guided tour around Gold Coast partially over land and then in water, the fun starts for children when they are given an opportunity to drive the Aquaduck (when on water) fie a brief while and they are also handed over a certificate with their...

What a great way to see the Gold Coast. The staff are friendly, very knowledgeable and are the standard tourism should be at. The Aquaduck tour was so much fun for both adults and children. The driver was down to earth. The tour gives you plenty of ideas on future activities and highlights of things you may not know about... More
