We had a lovely sunny morning cruise on the Nerang River and canals with Bluewater Cruises at Surfers Paradise. Brilliant (and funny) commentary by one of the crew and a very enjoyable way to spend the morning. Highly recommended.

A most enjoyable cruise. My highlight to our trip to the Gold Coast in April. Those Midori Spice cocktails as you cruise along the Gold Coast river relaxing in the sun and listening to the interesting commentary... Fantastic value for money. I highly recommend this cruise. We took the lunch cruise. Thank you all for such a lovely time.

I have travelled on Bluewater cruises twice. Once on my own and once with my husband. I took the morning tea cruise on both occasions. The cruise is very reasonably priced and a great way to see some of the more famous Gold Coast homes and landmarks from the water. The cruise is very affordable, the staff are so friendly... More

Cruise was great, the food was a bit of a disappointment but what do you expect for such a cheap price. The lady (Jo) was very informative and friendly and made the cruise for us, scored a free stubby holder by checkin and liking their Facebook page, would recommend to anyone wanting to explore the Gold Coast waterways/canals, definitely go...

Very friendly and informative trip as well as being enjoyable. Very friendly staff. Lunch was adequate for the type of trip and having a wine delivered upstairs was a bonus. The commentary was delivered in a clear yet amusing fashion way. The information interesting and we would go again. Recommend this if you are in the vicinity and want to... More

This is the second time this year we have used Bluewater cruises. Staff have been friendly and helpful both times. Recommend a cruise around the river for some relaxation or even hiring out the boat for a private function (as we did earlier in the year).
