Overview

The Gold Coast's quietest and only Zero Emission Electric Boat Company. Cruising in a safe, green, clean and quite Duffy Electric Boat is like having your "Own Limo on the Water". Renting a Duffy Electric Boat is the best way to enjoy a fun day or evening cruising the Gold Coast Waterways with your family and friends. When you glide across the water in a Duffy Electric Boat, you'll be treated to a totally different boating experience. Silky smooth and whisper quiet, it's the classy alternative to polluting, loud and offensive outboards. Your family, friends, and even your senses will thank you! Duffy Electric Boats are extremely easy to operate, self drive, and no boat license is required. Each boat comfortably sits up to 10-12 people. With four boats in the fleet they can accommodate up to 42 guests at any one time. Each boat has a full canopy top, full window enclosure, and great sounding CD player with iPod hookup. Something to celebrate? Duffy Electric Boats are the perfect way to spend a birthday, anniversary, HEN'S party, Christmas Parties, retirement, date night, or party with family, friends, or out of town guests. Activities can be organised to your specific needs, specialising in superb nautical events.

We hired a small electric boat and crusied the canals for a couple of hours. The boat was great and whilst not fast, definitely a comfortable way to see the canals of the Gold Coast (which are mostly speed limited anyway). The staff were friendly...More
