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 people. With four boats in the fleet they can accommodate up to 40 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, 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. « less

Boats are exceptionally comfortable & charming. Electric motor is whisper quiet & no exhaust smells. Staff were friendly & helpful. I highly Recomend a 2-3 hour cruise for 2-8 people as part of your holiday!

We had overseas relatives here and we were celebrating a Birthday. So we decided to hire a boat and take the family out on a canal cruise. We tried Duffy downunder and from the moment we met Minza to when we returned with Minza waiting at the dock to receive us, everything was first class. I highly recommend the Duffy... More

During my time in Australia, I participated in quite a lot of adrenalin filled days, it was nice to sit back, relax on the water with nice wine and music, having fun. Excellent day!

We had a great time cruising the waterways of the Gold Coast. We toured all the canals as suggested by the Duffy staff. It was really fun to see the houses, boats and people that live along the waterways following the route map Duffy provided. This allowed us to just sit back and enjoy the scenery. We loved the comfort... More

Had such a lovely time, the boat was so wonderful and peaceful (no noise... More

My friend and I decided to take advantage of a sunny afternoon and take a Duffy boat out to see Main Beach and Surfers from the water. Renting a boat was easy, affordable, and the staff was wonderfully helpful. My friend and I had the best time on the Nerang River easily managing the Duffy boat by ourselves. Such a... More

Heard about "Duffy Down Under" through some family friends and decided to take my 2 oldest boys out for a spin. Right from the start of the day the staff, I think her name was Eleia, made us feel very welcome, and were extremely accommodating of my young sons (6 & 5).
