Great cocktails and friendly crew
The cruise was just lovely - the commentary was interesting and the experience was very relaxing. The nibbles were a little underwhelming but the cocktails definitely made up for it! Be sure to grab a cocktail and head to the top deck for the best experience :)

Great cruise on the river canals
Very relaxing tour of the Gold Coast river canals, we sat up the top, plenty of room and quite comfortable. Tour guide and hosts were fantastic, very entertaining. Price was great for a full 1.5 hour tour, certainly would go again.

Enjoyable canal cruise
We did this 1.5 hr canal cruise for $22. It offered great value and we enjoyed the views and commentary along the way. Snack of crackers and cheese were provided and cold drinks needed to be purchased. It was disappointing that hot drinks were not provided as advertised in their brochure.

Made to feel relaxed
Spent our midday cruising the Gold Coast waterways.
The crew aboard this vessel were extremely friendly and informative.
From the complimentary cheese and biscuits to the reasonably priced beverages.
We have vowed to come back and do this cruise again soon.
As we were so busy looking out one side we are sure we missed plenty.
Great way to see the Gold Coast from another angle.
