NO BETTER WAY TO CRUISE THE GOLD COAST

We offer the best self drive or skippered boating experience on the famous Gold Coast Waterways!

  •   Had an amazing afternoon on the water courtesy of Duffy Down Under. Gordon and Nitsa are highly professional owners offering the best service and an experience second to none. Cruising the waterways of the spectacular Gold Coast (on a quiet vessel) with a glass of wine in hand is a must do if visiting the area. We are locals and will most certainly be making this a regular outing...next time with a seafood platter. Highly highly recommend Duffy Down Under for all - tourists and locals!!

      Our Skippered cruise was fantastic! We booked a two hour cruise that we wish had lasted longer, as our time sailed by too fast. With great views of the million dollar homes of the Gold Coast waterways, and the insightful narrative provided by our Skipper, we sipped our wine and enjoyed a most relaxing cruise. Travelling on the very quiet and comfortable Duffy was so smooth that even the Dolphins popped up to say G'Day. This is definitely a tour worth taking, and we will be sure to take the longer cruise the next time we are back. More

      We booked our accommodation on the Gold Coast through Booking.com and afterwards, Booking.com sent a discount voucher for tourist activities on the Gold Coast. I saw the Cruise and booked it. I have been going to the Gold Coast for 50 years and yet I had never been for a canal cruise. It was fabulous. The boat was an electric motored boat and so quiet and pleasant to ride in. The boat was spotlessly clean and because we booked through Booking.com, we received a free fruit and cheese platter. It lasted for 90 minutes and for 4 of us, it was quite economical. Captain Vlad allowed our 15 and 20 year old to take the helm and they had a fabulous time. We were able to take our own esky with our wine in ice to drink and Duffy's provided wine glasses for us. I would recommend this to anyone.

      Friendly, helpful staff and so easy to drive.
    Boat was in excellent condition with fun photo prop hats! Great way to see the coast in a different way. Relaxing couples morning or a great idea for a group of friends or family. Highly recommend. Easy parking at departure point too with great food options close by. More

      This is our 4th time on the Duffy boats with family visiting from the UK and as usual a perfect day on the water. Fabulous, friendly service from Gordo, the boat as quiet as ever, the sun was shining and the water like glass - our family and friends said it was their favourite day and experience on the GC!

      I’ve been living on the GC for 5 yrs and today I went on my first canal cruise on a silent electric boat with the lovely Gordon as our Captain! My parents were visiting from Melbourne and chose to do the morning cruise. The customer service was 5 star as was the whole experience!! Gordon was a captivating and knowledgeable host for the 90 minute cruise past the amazing waterfront homes on the canals and even let me drive the boat! My friends and I are already planning to hire the boat out for a morning cruise after Gordon explained you don’t need a boat license to drive it!!
    This was such excellent value for money and I would highly recommend you put this on your list of things to do on the coast when visiting or even if you’re a local!
    Thank you Gordon for such a memorable morning out on the water
