Where we visit
Departing at 5:30pm from 63 Cavill Ave, Surfers Paradise (River End), next to the Tiki statue, once on the water, you'll then make your way down the beautiful waterways and canals to the Gold Coast Broadwater. Sunset is a special time to explore this area, and you'll find the golden light makes everything even more magical!
Throughout your trip, you'll be treated to commentary and some fun facts about this extravagant area, so all you need to do is sit back, relax and take it all in! Take your pick from an outside sundeck or an inside seated area to experience all of the stunning views in optimal comfort.
You'll explore Surfer’s Paradise, probably one of the most famous suburbs on the Gold Coast, with its iconic tall skyscrapers and bustling beach. This is also a hot spot for celebrities from all over the world.
Next, sail down the beautiful canals, past extravagant mansions and perhaps even spot a celebrity or two! Your guide will tell you about the history of the Gold Coast and fill you in on all the gossip. You’ll find out which celebrities live where and learn more about the housing prices. You might want to hold on to your hat - these houses are not cheap!
You’ll also pass by million-dollar mansions and luxury yachts as well as some classic Gold Coast landmarks.
After cruising through Surfer’s Paradise, continue out to the Marina Mirage, a huge shopping mall with restaurants, shops, and galleries.
Then, it's time to check out another must-see building, the Palazzo Versace. This is a 5-star hotel built in French Riviera style and is one of the Gold Coast's most opulent resorts.
If you want a break from spotting fancy buildings, there’s also some fascinating wildlife to see on the cruise. Have a look around - you might be able to spot playful dolphins and sea eagles!
As the beautiful Gold Coast sun, sets, treat yourself to antipasto platters full of cheese, crackers, carrot and celery sticks. Top off the day with a wine, champagne or beer, or maybe even a cocktail from the bar onboard!
