Superduck or Aquaduck tour??

Is there any real difference between these two tours?

The Superduck has half price tours for their first and last tours of the day, so we will go with one of those unless the Aquaduck tour is better?

Thanks!

I think they are about the same, would go with the one that has a discount.

I have been on both and reckon Superduck is heaps better and its just a bonus its discounted. I love their little quacking toys!!!

Definitely AQUADUCK! So professional, well worth the money. Went on both and Superduck (or as my kids call it - SuperSUCK) was very ordinary.

This is the classic case of you get what you pay for. Remember that.

You get what you pay for.

Aquaduck - BRILLIANT!!!

You really do get what you pay for!

There is just no comparing the two - Sorry SuperDuck, but you did leave us stranded for an hour while you were trying to fix it mid way through the trip and apparently this is a very common fault with SuperDuck as we have found out from other forums.

Aquaduck is definitely the one to go on if you want happy memories of your Gold Coast trip.

I was under the impression that both companies cover the same route or near enough not to matter. Cost and availability at the time would be my criteria. Breakdowns happen, its how they handle it is the important factor.

We did the Superduck tour - first tour of the day so we got it half price for mentioning their website advertisement. It was pretty average. The sound system was not working so we couldn't hear the commentary for most of it. Both the kids got to 'drive' the duck ) - albeit very briefly, and received a certificate at the end. Each rider also got a juice during the cruise. I wouldn't recommend the tour. Might try the Aquaduck if we ever do it again...

Repeated Breakdowns Bean41? - I do appreciate your comment in order to assist people in choosing the best value for money, but no this is not acceptable.

How they should handle it, is to ensure the ship is fixed once and for all.

I do worry about my children being on a somewhat suspect vessel, It can be down right dangerous.

I honestly do hope they get there issues resolved because such discounted tickets can be attractive. However, I will not risk my children's safety no matter how cheap they are.

DEFINITELY GO WITH AQUADUCK. Superduck is incredibly unprofessional, their vehicle constantly breaks down…I have known this to happen up to 3 times a week. Also, their staff are taught to take the customer for everything they've got. They will not allow children under 3 on the bus for free even if you hold your infant on your lap. DO NOT GO TO SUPERDUCK. You will be much happier with the friendly and professional staff at Aquaduck :)
