What you can expect

Departing from Surfers Paradise, the iconic Aquaduck remains Australia’s first and finest amphibious adventure. These tours offer a perfect blend of city sightseeing and river cruising. Whether you’re a local or a visitor, this family-friendly adventure is a safe and enjoyable activity for all ages.

Engage with knowledgeable tour guides, who will provide informative commentary throughout the journey. The tour begins on land, where guests can witness the famous ‘Surfers Paradise’ sign on the renowned beach before the real excitement begins. Experience the famous “splash down” as the Aquaduck seamlessly transitions from land to water. Experience an aquatic adventure that gives the opportunity to enjoy the captivating beauty of the Gold Coast Broadwater. Keep a look out for playful dolphins and other fascinating wildlife that call this area home.

Marvel at the spectacular Surfers Paradise skyline and catch a glimpse of the luxurious super yachts while cruising past the Marina Mirage. Children are invited to take the helm of the Aquaduck and take home their very own souvenir captain’s certificate. Suitable for all ages, from babies to seniors, this is a must-do activity for the entire family.

Review of Aquaduck Gold Coast was fun and very enjoyed.

Aquaduck Gold Coast was very fun and enjoyable. The whole process from buying the tickets to checking in to boarding the bus was so easy and quick while on the road it's a bus so you need to be seated. Once on the water you are free to walk around and be free. Would highly recommend it.

Absolutely loved this experience! Highly recommend this.

Absolutely loved this experience! Highly recommend this activity for the family. We took our 3-year-old and she loved it. She especially loved driving the boat. All the kids got a turn. I’ve always wanted to do this but just never found the time. So glad we did it!

Good experience, good for kids, must to try in Gold Coast

Valuable trip, nice to have, it's a good way to travel around Gold Coast water area, and the ticket is good value, my family really love it, but be aware of the weather, otherwise it would be a different experience when windy or rainy, but high recommend still.
