A Gold Coast cruise is a brilliant way to see the highlights and beauty of the city. You can take a cruise to nearby islands, up a river to catch fish and crabs, or to hand-feed dolphins and to see other marine life.

Alternatively, jump onboard and take advantage of the 2 hour cocktail dinner cruise or the 90 minute Gold Coast sightseeing cruise. Also enjoy a full day Reef Ryder Island cruise where you enjoy entertainment all day then land at Wave Break Island. Once there you can go snorkeling!
