A really good way to relax and spend 1.5hrs cruising the coastal waterways at Surfers. The crew were very friendly and helpful and the boat captain was very friendly and humorous. Drinks were well priced and you got up close and personal with some very expensive waterside houses. A good value tour.

We were amazed at the price...such great value! The lunch was nice, the staff were so friendly and funny, and the 1.5 hour cruise was the perfect way to view some of the most stunning properties in the Gold Coast! The commentary was light, interesting and a little tongue in cheek.....and the staff were very knowledgeable about the area, history... More
