“Duffy Down Under Pty Ltd lovely boat cruise”

Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Duffy Down Under Pty Ltd lovely boat cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

The tour around the harbor in these clean, comfortable, very easy boats was terrific! A bottle of wine, great music, relaxation and we got to see Jackie Chan's house. The service/people were wonderful as well. Highly recommended.

Great way to spend the day, floating around the Broad water canals on the Gold Coast. Very friendly service, Great price, Great all round experience.
If your looking for a way to spend a couple hours or a full day, this is it. BYO food and drinks, get a group of friends and you will enjoy your day. great idea for birthday, or girls day out. Hen's pre party, sunset cruise
We loved our time on these boats and looking forward to our next afternoon out.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

What a wonderful afternoon, 6 of us cruising around the waterways with good company, great music and bubbles, except for the driver, he was good company just minus the bubbles!! the responsible one.

Duffy Boats are the finest, easy to drive and beautifully furnished.
Thank you, for a fantastic afternoon, we would definately recommend.

“It doesn't get any more relaxing ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

We took a Duffy from Sanctuary Cove yesterday and spent a few hours cruising around your lovely waterways. The process was hassle free from the beginning to the end and that's what made the middle-part out on the water even nicer! We had a guest from New Zealand with us and he said that this was the most relaxed he has felt since he began his holiday a week ago. So thank you Duffy Down Under, we'll be sure to think of you next time we visit from Sydney.
