Did not expect such great experience since the cruise was only $20 but I was surprised. They've got a bar on board, cocktail specials, beers and sensational views of the Gold Coast. You get to see the luxury side of the Gold Coast. Some properties will truly surprise you. Highly recommended

The staff are very friendly and we couldn't believe the value for money, it is very reasonable and even offered cake and biscuits as well as tea and coffee. Marg is great as is the captain and it is a great way to see a little more of the Gold Coast.

Each place I visit I go on the local cruise. The cheapest are often the best value for money. The morning tea cruise was first class you cant even hire a boat that cheap for 1 1/2 hours. sit back and have a beer and enjoy the view knowing this was the best $20 bucks you spent. Cheers

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The cruise itself it was okay a bit boring . I would recommend the morning or afternoon cruise for value of money. Lunch cruise it is not a good value for money.
