We Joined Capt Wayne and the A Crew on Monday for a fabulous afternoon out on the water to watch Whales Frolic - and so many. It was a bit bumpy getting out of the sea way and out off the coast But then on the first sighting and following the wales North it was a lot calmer .

Thank you so much for your review, Stuart. We're happy to hear you had a fantastic experience with us. How lucky you got to see the Humpback Whales breaching and being so active on the day! We hope to see you again sometime in the future.

Awesome experience, kids loved it. Food was nice, a shame there was no desert, but still more than enough cold prawns, salads and carved ham. Very nice way to see the GC waterway properties from another angle

A really nice way to start the day! Cruises from Cavill Ave to SeaWorld and back. Enjoyable views of the Gold coast from the broadwater with just enough commentary to point out the highlights without being a constant noise. Very helpful and friendly crew.

Nice way to spend the afternoon. However coffee was cold and snack was some cheap rice crackers with 3 tiny pieces of dried up cheese no bigger than my little finger nail. Fruit was was warm and dried out as well. Not very appetising at all. For price of ticket. You could

Beautiful new boat, great table seating inside, too hot on upstairs sundeck. After enjoying the Surfers Paradise river cruise three hours earlier, I opted to do this one to steer clear of Melbourne cup drunks. Great boat but barely 20 minutes of lethargic commentary. The other
