What to Expect

Take in the stunning Gold Coast surroundings and explore the waterways, rivers and canals in style on this extra-special sunset cruise! 


Indulge in a delicious antipasto platter and nibbles as you travel along the water, and discover some of the Gold Coast's most iconic sights over 1 hr and 30 min.


Departing from Surfers Paradise (River End), you'll make your way down the beautiful waterways and canals to the Gold Coast Broadwater. Sunset is a special time to explore this area, and the golden light makes everything even more magical! 

You'll explore Surfer's Paradise, probably the most famous suburb on the Gold Coast. As you float by, take in the tall skyscrapers and a bustling beach. This is also a hot spot for celebrities from all over the world.


Next, sail down the beautiful canals, past extravagant mansions, luxury yachts, and perhaps even 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 housing prices. You might want to hold on to your hat – these houses are not cheap! 


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 the Palazzo Versace, another must-see building and a 5-star hotel built in the French Riviera style. 


If you want a break from spotting fancy buildings, there's also some fascinating wildlife to see on the cruise. So have a look around – you might be able to spot playful dolphins and sea eagles!


Throughout your trip, you'll be treated to commentary and 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.


As the beautiful Gold Coast sun sets, treat yourself to antipasto platters full of cheese, crackers, carrot and celery sticks. Then, top off the day with a glass of wine, champagne or beer, or maybe even a cocktail from the bar onboard (drinks not included)! 


Please note: Disabled access is available, but the toilets onboard are unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
