The Gold Coast's quietest and only Zero Emission Electric Boat Company...

The Gold Coast's quietest and only Zero Emission Electric Boat Company. Cruising in a safe, green, clean and quite Duffy Electric Boat is like having your "Own Limo on the Water". Renting a Duffy Electric Boat is the best way to enjoy a fun day or evening cruising the Gold Coast Waterways with your family and friends. When you glide across the water in a Duffy Electric Boat, you'll be treated to a totally different boating experience. Silky smooth and whisper quiet, it's the classy alternative to polluting, loud and offensive outboards. Your family, friends, and even your senses will thank you! Duffy Electric Boats are extremely easy to operate, self drive, and no boat license is required. Each boat comfortably sits up to 10-12 people. With four boats in the fleet they can accommodate up to 42 guests at any one time. Each boat has a full canopy top, full window enclosure, and great sounding CD player with iPod hookup. Something to celebrate? Duffy Electric Boats are the perfect way to spend a birthday, anniversary, HEN'S party, Christmas Parties, retirement, date night, or party with family, friends, or out of town guests. Activities can be organised to your specific needs, specialising in superb nautical events.

Loved the electric motor - no noise or fumes. Made the time on the water very enjoyable in this small boat that seated 9 plus skipper. I had planned on going on a tour on one of the much larger vessels but engine trouble meant it was cancelled (for many days it seems) - the company had arranged this one... More

We had a wonderful, intimate family reunion aboard this boat! We received a warm, friendly welcome aboard by Nitsa who could not have been more reassuring and accommodating before we set off on our magical journey of the Broadwater and canals. The boat was very well presented, easy to steer, quiet and proved an excellent way for family to catch... More

The intimate boat cruise was beautifully presented. The operator "Gordon" was very personable and most accommodating to us he tailored our cruise to our needs and was very informative if the sights. The cost was very good particularly as we had one on one tour leadership. Would thoroughly recommend to everyone families or friends.

Great morning on the water with the captain -Gordon. Highly recommend hiring the electric Duffy. Quiet, comfortable and very clean. I think this is the perfect boat for a small cruise with up to 10 people. We had a skipper so we could enjoy the scenery, Gordon was very informative and knowledgeable of the local area, houses and history of... More

Took one of the boats out for 2 hours with 3 adults and 6 children (4yrs-11yrs). Being able to take the boat out without a skipper (no boating licence required ) gave us the opportunity to explore the best of what the gold coast has to offer. We all enjoyed the fact that we could take food on board -... More

I want one of these boats - so quiet and no gas fumes! We had a fun trip cruising around the canals and looking at all the different houses - very relaxing and easy to drive and navigate. We were an all ages group and everyone enjoyed it. The staff are friendly and helpful.

My friend and I were recommended to Duffys so we checked it out. We were the only two there at the time but they were very happy to take us on a one hour cruise even though it was probably not profitable for them. Thanks Gordon for a very enjoyable cruise.

Intercontinental offered a package which included a one hour self drive cruise along the canals. These boats are quiet due to the electric motor, and even for the novice, the experience is relaxing. We were a bit concerned at first that we would not be able to steer the little beast, but once we got the hang of the steering,... More
