The Gold Coast's quietest and only Zero Emission Electric Boat Company....

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.

Cruising out on the waters of the GC with the family on a sunny day was spectacular. Brilliant customer service, Nitsa & Gordon run a 'tight ship'...providing a friendly and super easy process to take control of the water ways. Would book again, over and over - already planning the next social outing.

Highly recommend hiring the electric boat to explore the Gold Coast. We experienced brilliant service January 4th. The boat was super clean, safe, comfortable and smooth. We had a three year old in tow and had no issues what's so ever. We spent a glorious two hours on the water and would easily revisit this attraction again. You can self... More

Owners were screaming at us because we were 5 minutes late. Also swearing in public because we dared to open the windows. What a joke !

It was truly a highlight of our trip, and the experience was only enhanced by the amazing owner, Nitsa, who took great care to ensure we had the best experience possible! So much fun to drive the boat-- and so easy!! HIGHLY recommend to anyone... More

I escorted 30 clients on a fun day in Surfers Paradise with a Duffy Boat experience followed by high tea at Versace. What can I say, Duffy truly delivered with a very special fun time with three of their electric boats where all can play captain. I dealt with Nitsa from the start who is wonderful, no hard sell, but... More

Well what a great way to spend time with family and friends. I live on the coast and have never seen the G/Coast waterways in such a great way. I suggest you get to Duffy Down Under and have a great day out for what ever occasion.
