We loved our boat hire (boat #3) which we hired & set off fishing near Crab Island. We had a great morning which was extended by the owner so we were very thankful. Great service & awesome morning on the water

Thank you so much for the 5 star review, we all love receiving feedback from our customers. Unfortunately, we did not have the opportunity to welcome you on our boat (maybe next time :-)), as this review was sent to the wrong company, you may wish to send them the review. Thank you

We did a 3 hour boat cruise around the gold coast waterways. Nitsa the owner was our skipper for my Hens party. We had the best time! Honestly, it was the highlight of my hens weekend. Nitsa took heaps of photos of our group and allowed me to play my own music nice and loud! She also organized water, champagne glasses and ice buckets. The table on board was movable, meaning that after we’d eaten Nitsa moved the table so we had our very own dance floor! Nitsa also stopped at her mooring halfway through the cruise so we could use the ladies toilet (but there is also one on board!). The boat comfortably fit 8 of us girls. We ate, danced and drank whilst looking at some of the richest houses, people enjoying their meals at the wharf and some dolphins! So many great memories to cherish forever! Thanks Nitsa :)
