We loved the morning cruise, which came with refreshments and was only $20 per person. Great way to unwind cruising the canals of Surfers with an interesting commentary along the way. The staff were so friendly and you can even grab a cocktail or mocktail on board.

A great day out on the Nerang River and Broadwater and best of all we were surrounded by a pod of dolphins including some babies. Recommend this to all visitors to the Gold Coast

We found this trip fairly basic. A short (and certainly cheap) cruise around the river in Surfers Paradise. It was pleasant enough if you enjoy a short cruise on a lovely day looking at expensive real estate and interesting views of Surfers Paradise skyline.
