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.

Communication was the downfall.
We were not advised before going on our trip that due to an electrical fault there would be no running commentary, which totally detracted from the trip. Also there were no refreshments available for the same reason.
When it started raining the skipper was slow to pull the blinds down and everyone was huddled in the middle of the boat to keep dry.
We also found out the night before we were entitled to a seniors discount of $10 each but the kiosk booking clerk knew this but offered no compensation on our pre-paid tickets.
Altogether a disappointing experience.

If you get a chance to head down to the Broadwater on the Gold Coast, make sure you jump on board the Hopo ferry. It's a great relaxed way to travel through the waterways and see some of our Coasts beautiful attractions. As a local I take the opportunity as often as I can and did so again yesterday, with a friend. We were totally looked after by our captain, and enjoyed another spectacular day out on the water, thanks to Justin and management 💯

We wanted to go to HOTA (Home Of The Arts) and was looking at catching a bus when we saw a sign for the Hoppa and thought 'why not?'

It's a family owned business and so you have to pay for the service (as we thought it might have come under our 'GO' card).
I can't remember how much it cost but I don't mind so much, as it's a 'family' business.

Everyone from the lady who sold us our tickets to the boat Captain/Tour Guide were very friendly.
It was a lovely and different way to see the Gold Coast.
We 'hopped' off at HOTA and returned to the pontoon afterwards, for our return trip back.
It was very easy but can imagine it to get busy in peak times.

This was a great experience seeing the Gold Coast from the water. The commentary was interesting and seeing all the posh houses was great. We got off at Marina Mirage and had lunch and then waited for the boat back to Surfers.

We did the hop on hop off last Thursday. We got off on all 5 destinations and had a good look around. Each time we boarded the ferry the captain talked about the local sites and he had lots of information which was interesting.
The best part was that we could do it again within 7days so today we decided just to get on and enjoy the ride and plenty of information from our captain Dean. It was relaxing and very informative 👌

Very convenient public transport service to see the canals and residences, and to reach tourist spots such as the Marina Mirage, HOTA, Seaworld. Commentary by the captains was fun and interesting.
Buying tickets is easy: either on board or online.
