Admire the glittering Gold Coast from the water on a relaxing cruise from Surfers Paradise. On either a morning or afternoon tour, you’ll glide along the Nerang River and other coastal waterways to take advantage of photo ops of the Gold Coast’s high-rise hotels and resorts. Head toward Broadwater, pass by Marina Mirage and see Palazzo Versace. Coffee and tea is served on board the morning cruise, accompanied by either cake or a cheese platter, depending on the cruise selected.
What to Expect
Your Gold Coast sightseeing cruise starts in Surfers Paradise, where you’ll hop aboard your boat and set off along the winding Nerang River, passing by hotels and skyscrapers. Follow the river to Broadwater, and admire impressive vacation homes from the water.

Spot attractions like Palazzo Versace, SeaWorld and the Marina Mirage resort complex, where sleek luxury yachts bob in the harbor. You can either stay cool and shaded in the interior cabin or head to the sundeck for fresh air. Drinks can be purchased from the onboard bar, and narration is provided. Depending on the option selected at booking—either the morning or afternoon cruise—you’ll enjoy tea and coffee served with cake or a selection of cheese. Kid-themed activities are also available for little ones.

Your cruise ends with return to the departure point.
