Thank you for your feedback. We would love for you to experience the tour in summer, it is quite lovely especially our sunset cruise. We will look into the commentary issue, we may need to adjust our audio system

Great activity on the Gold Coast. The aqua duck is just cool good fun, nothing too serious. Cruise goes for around an hour which is just long enough to enjoy the broad water and the views along the road.
