Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So disappointed with Andrew and our booking experience. He cancelled and didn’t even contact us to let us know. We arrived 15 mins early and Andrew wouldn’t answer our text or calls. When we called from a different number he said he was sick. We travelled from Broadbeach by public transport for a three hour boat ride to end our family holiday and got nothing.

Decided to go out for a family boat trip for something fun to do for Father’s Day. Had such a great time. We have never driven a boat before in our lives and had absolutely no clue. But there is no requirement to have a boat licence and these guys did an amazing job teaching us the basics.

The boats are really nice and super comfortable. Despite being a little concerned about never driving a boat before it was really easy and a lot of fun.

Highly recommend and we will do it again some time.

This was a last minute thing for us and we got a great deal. The boat was a little dated but was great fun. Due to regulations you can only do 6 knots but we still covered a lot of the river. Beautiful homes and boats along the way and a little bit of fishing too. Great fun. Friendly guy. Thank you.

We had hired a boat here many years ago and this time decided to go back, with our 3 and 6 year olds. It was an overcast day and perfect for a boat ride, bit of a breeze, not too hot... however we all of a sudden got caught up in the middle of a huge freak thunderstorm, torrential rain, wind, everything - couldn't see a thing and we were all absolutely soaking wet after being in the rain for over an hour.

We decided to return early and the gentleman there was outstanding! He offered us a refund due to the unexpected turn of events, gave us some towels to dry up, turned the heater up for our kids and even offered us a coffee... he was even happy for us to take one of his umbrellas and keep it, so we could make it back to our car! Made a huge difference, especially as we were worried about our kids getting sick given how wet they were...

Genuine care and genuine good service, great boats - blown away... will 100% come back next time we're up here.
Thank you!

We received great friendly service. Three hours on the water - great value for money. We received a free boat upgrade when the smaller boat was unavailable. This was a great way to spend a sunny day. No hesitations on recommending.

Andrew from Capri Boat Hire was super helpful. We hired a bow rider for a family of four with two young kids and cruised up and down the waterways for three hours. We had a great time! No licence required as the boats are limited to 6 knots. Would highly recommend!

Seriously ... jump on board with food n drinks -
Everything’s ready to go !
Perfectly cleaned (and oiled ) BBQ awaits , spoteless toilet /change room . Sink with running water .
Full shade , comfy seats (the boat is licenced for 12 people ) and there is AMPLE room .
On board sound system to hook up your tunes .
And here’s the thing —our youngest was 14 and our oldest ? 90 years old . Everyone was comfortable happy and our eight hour Gold Coast waterways tour was just so so much fun !
Perfect day made even more perfect when we docked - the owner takes the trash and cleans the barbie !
Too easy :) best family day EvER!

We rented a boat for two hours to sail in the canals. The sights were awsome, that day boat traffic was quiet so we stoped the boat to get a little rest and then continued the sailing.

Hiring a boat was straightforward and easy.
Andrew’s instructions were clear and he recommended a route upstream that was wonderful for first timers like us.
At 9am, the tide was coming in and traffic on the river was rather Iight so the ride was truly pleasant. The sights were interesting for us and our 3 children alike. Two hours passed quickly enough! Couldn’t have spent the morning in a better way.
