Make your own way to Mariners Cove Marina in the morning to board the high-speed catamaran for the 35-minute ride to Stradbroke Island. Keep a lookout for the wild sea eagles that follow the boat!
Before arriving at McLarens Landing, cruise past the sparkling Gold Coast Broadwater and hear live commentary about the sights. You can also purchase drinks from the onboard bar if you wish (own expense).
How you spend your day on the island is your choice. Activities available include using provided equipment to go stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking or canoeing on warm turquoise waters (non-motorized water equipment is included). Or choose additional activities (own expense) such as seaplane or speedboat rides, jet-skiing, tractor beach rides and sand-tobogganing.
Swim and snorkel from the white–sand beaches of Stradbroke Island, and keep an eye out for dolphins, sea turtles manta rays and humpback whales (seasonal). Learn more about local history at the small museum, take a walk in the jungle or check out the resident population of wallabies and kookaburras.
Refuel at lunch with the included barbecue that features chicken, fish, steak, sausages, potatoes and salads, with drinks available from the bar (own expense).
Return to the Gold Coast mainland on the high-speed catamaran at the end of your 5-hour tour.
