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

We went for a lunch river cruise in Surfers Paradise. It was a very informative and enjoyable leisurely cruise. The captain skilfully and leisurely steered the boat and gave an interesting and witty narration of all the interesting sights along the cruise. Lunch provided was a simple buffet. There were lots of interesting sights to see along the way. We... More

At first I wasn't to sure but once onboard hubby and I thought it was great value. I have Crohn's disease and have to be careful about hygiene but it was clean and I never got sick so that's saying something. Lunch buffet didn't look like there was much food but there was more than enough with everyone filling there... More

We arrived early and fortunately it was a little overcast, which meant we could get a good seat upstairs and it wasn't too hot. The Trip: Was very interesting and offered a good amount of history as we cruised from Surfers Paradise to Marina... More

Great trip, past all the expensive waterside homes. Great value. One of the staff on our trip had a bad cold. She sneezed at least 5 times into her hand and immediately handled the plastic drinks cups, food dishes and drinking straws without hand washing. That was very disappointing.
