This was really good. So relaxing sitting watching the lovely houses on the canal and learning some history with the commentary. Good selection of cold drinks and nibbles to help you relax. Easy to get on and off and to move around on board.

Interesting commentary, great cold cuts and salad for lunch on board the boat for a relaxing cruise along the Gold Coast water ways. Helpful staff made the trip very pleasant, We enjoyed the fish feeding prior to boarding too.

This was a last minute addition to my Gold Coast getaway with my mum. Worth the price. For $20 we had a lovely 90min cruise admiring elaborate houses on islands along the coast on a nice sunny afternoon, accompanied with nibbles on the way. Crew were friendly. A good sport if you are in Surfers and have time to kill.

What a good trip the food was ok not great but then the costs were not high. The staff were great as was the young skipper. The beer was cold and wet and not over priced.

We went for the River Cruise on 17/08/16 in the afternoon. It was a 90min ride which comes with complimentary snacks. In fact I was expecting to see beautiful views (land and sea) of Gold Coast but it wasn't the case. The main focus were on bungalow housing & the AUD 10million yachts. There were only a few high rise... More
