What You Can Expect

Gold Coast Lunch Cruise

Gold Coast Lunch Cruise

Make your own way to the designated dock in Surfers Paradise to board your deluxe sightseeing vessel for your lunch cruise.

Enjoy views from the water of Gold Coast landmarks as you glide along the calm waters of the Nerang River and north to the Broadwater. Along the way, get unobstructed views of famous sites like Southport Yacht Club, the Marina Mirage resort complex and the glittering Palazzo Versace hotel — one of Australia’s only six-star resort hotels. Cruise by luxury yachts and mansions, modern skyscrapers and hotels.

The crew serves up a delicious buffet that includes prawns, chicken, salads and tropical fruit. Complimentary tea and coffee come with your meal, and additional drinks are available for purchase from the onboard bar. Choose to sit either in the air-conditioned cabin or on the sundeck outdoors; both options offer an excellent vantage point to see the attractions and beaches of the Gold Coast.

At the end of your leisurely 2-hour cruise, your boat returns to Surfers Paradise where your tour ends.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The onboard commentary was very interesting - he knew much about the buildings on the harbour and added interesting tid bits about any significant buildings. The boat was quite nice and spacious. I'd even say somewhat luxurious.
The food was good value. The bread was surprisingly the hit of our group, not to say that the rest was subpar as the prawns kept us happy! Note that it was a cold buffet lunch so don't expect any hot dishes.
I'd recommend to go upstairs to the sundeck if the weather permits. The view is breathtaking, especially on the way to stradbroke Island and on the way back to Surfers paradise.
