What to expect
Your Gold Coast sightseeing cruise starts in Surfers Paradise, where you’ll hop aboard your boat and set off along the winding Nerang River, passing by hotels and skyscrapers. Follow the river to Broadwater, and admire impressive vacation homes from the water. Spot attractions like Palazzo Versace, SeaWorld and the Marina Mirage resort complex, where sleek luxury yachts bob in the harbor. You can either stay cool and shaded in the interior cabin or head to the sundeck for fresh air. Drinks can be purchased from the onboard bar, and narration is provided. Depending on the option selected at booking—either the morning or afternoon cruise—you’ll enjoy tea and coffee served with cake or a selection of cheese. Kid-themed activities are also available for little ones. Your cruise ends with return to the departure point.

Horrible and rude customer service
Dec 2020 • Family
The lady l spoke to at 5.35pm (20/12/2020) was manipulative, horribly rude and insensitive. She tried to trick us into switching our fully paid 2hr pm booking to a 1hr am booking. She kept speaking over me and telling me that l should listen to her instead. I could not belive my ears. Our kids were looking forward to the cruise, utterly disappointed. We will not be back.

Watching the whales frolic
Jun 2020
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 . It was enhanced by a few travelling south to chase a female and watching them leap of of the water numerous times. Just couldnt get the shot as they are so quick - so an amazing afternoon of memories - Thank you

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

Relaxing cruise
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.

Fair value for money
Nov 2019
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 give your customers something a little better.

BLAH Seaworld River Cruise
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 company was much more informative and witty.
We docked at Seaworld to drop passengers off and collect some and to take on big tubs of food for the dinner cruise. This took 15 minutes out of our cruise time, coupled with the 20 minute commentary earlier and nothing on the way back, it felt like we were NOT their main concern. Not impressed at all. If you want to be entertained and have a bit of a laugh, go with the other company, Seaworld gets a big "you stink" from me!

Thank you for letting us know about your recent experience with us. It’s disappointing to hear that it did not match your expectations. We offer a relaxing afternoon cruise with the best views of the Gold Coast waterways. As we mention on our website we offer complimentary savoury snacks on our spacious, comfortable vessel, no entertainment cruise. We will consider your comments regarding our commentary and will discuss this with our team.

What a lovely cruise. We booked onsite at the very last minute. Staff were very helpful both on the ground and on the boat. We had a great cruise along the river soaking up the views and the facts provided along with a few nibbles and a lovely glass of wine (drinks need to be purchased). It was a lovely way to spend an hour or so.

We went today and it was amazing! Perfect conditions and the staff were so friendly. They helped us and supported us boarding the boat. We were in the captains lounge and I definitely recommend. This cruise is suitable for all ages and is brilliant for the elderly also. In the lounge you receive constant variety of drinks and limitless amounts of food. The crew really knows what they are doing and they will help you with whatever questions or concerns you raise. If you are in the captains lounge you also get an opportunity to sit in the captains chair and possibly drive the boat!! So amazing for all ages and kids will definitely enjoy it. 100000000/10. Best captain award definitely goes to captain wayne, you are amazing. So helpful and such a bubbly and happy personality. Tourists I recommend you try this out and it is great for making memories
