What a pleasant surprise!.
Given the price ($20) we had no expectations............
How wrong we were.
A lovely couple of hours on the water with commentary, and a BBQ sausage sandwich.
Drinks are available for purchase and reasonably priced.
Ferry departs from Surfers Paradise and meanders almost to Seaworld.

Take the morning, mid day or sunset cruise........I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
The crew .........extremely friendly.
Parking is very close by .........an easy level short walk..........and free for the first 2 hrs so it will only cost you $4.40.

Thank you so much for your review. We pride ourselves on being the one of the best valued things to do on the Gold Coast & are so happy that you agree. Our biggest problem is sometimes convincing customers that there are no catches & we are 100% certain they be very pleasantly surprised at the value for money.
In regards to the crew, we are truly lucky to have such a wonderful team of staff that love what they do & in particular love the great customers that we have on board.
Thank you once again & we hope to see you in the near future.

We had a delightful sunset cruise on a perfect evening with a couple of drinks on board to end a perfect day in Surfers. The staff are friendly and informative with some great photos taken of the mansions and luxury boats along the way. A must do in Surfers.

What a day, my husband and I had an absolutely brilliant afternoon. Fantastic value $20.00 each including a bbq lunch, wine, beer an champagne at $5.00 each what a bargain. Magnificent views, great commentary and a relaxed environment. We spent heaps on other shows and functions while we were in Queensland and were so thankful to end our trip with such value for money. Would highly recommend this to anyone. Fantastic staff who were friendly and helpful. Would certainly do it again when next on the Goldcoast.

This attraction is a must do in Surfers. My wife and I went on the Coffee and cake cruise and for $20 we got our monies worth in coffee and cake topped off by giving us sausages in bread that were bring made for the lunch cruise. The staff were all very friendly, professional and I recommend this cruise to anyone visiting Surfers. Thank You Bluewater Cruises
