What people are saying about Gold Coast

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. The staff were friendly, funny, informative, the nibbles were lovely and you could help yourself to as much as you wished. There were enough amenities and they allowed the children to have some fun as well. The views were lovely and we managed to capture a gorgeous sunset. Couldn't recommend highly enough and great value for money.

This was a family run cruise and worth every cent. The captain was entertaining, informative and encouraged the kids (and wannabe kids again) to have a steer of the boat. They have snacks on board that are complimentary and also drinks for purchase at very reasonable prices.

Wonderful experience. The Captain n other crew were kind, interactive and Amazing. The Captain took kids heart away when he offered kids to Ryde the cruise.
