Overview
More
Experience the true magic of the Gold Coast as you and your partner or friends cruise in style aboard your own private luxury gondola while cruising through our majestic canals. You will be serenaded by soft romantic background music as you glide smoothly through the sheltered canals of Main Beach and Surfers Paradise, past the multi-million dollar waterfront mansions of the rich and famous and their equally expensive and lavish motor yachts. So whether you are looking for the ultimate in Romance and Magic or are merely wanting to sit back and enjoy the experience of a lifetime, nothing will come close to the Luxury, Ambiance and Setting of a Gold Coast Gondola cruise. Cruises are available daily from 9:00 AM on either an un-catered (without meals) basis or on a catered basis (Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner) with Main courses and/or Desserts. The elegant and distinguished cabin interiors surround you in comfort and luxury as you sink into the plush sheep skin covered seats. The dining table is beautifully appointed and includes table flowers, candle lantern, ice bucket and glasses.

My husband and I returned to GC Gondolas for another cruise because our first cruise was so special. This second cruise was just as great. Beautiful views and delicious food. This is something different to do on the Gold Coast.
