ABOUT US

 

The ultimate relaxing day out on the famous Gold Coast Waterways.

Duffy Down Under’s Electric Gold Coast Boat Hire services is the best way to enjoy a fun filled morning, afternoon or evening cruising the Gold Coast waterways with your family and friends. Our Boat Hire Gold Coast provides excellent views of the beautiful Gold Coast skyline from the water. Our Boats are Electric so they are environmentally friendly, while being whisper quiet while you glide across the water.

All of our Gold Coast Boat Hire Services requires no license! Self-drive Duffy boats are extremely easy to maneuver and operate. You can be sure that your Gold Coast boating experience will be a safe and enjoyable one with a safety briefing before hitting the water.


NO BETTER WAY TO CRUISE THE GOLD COAST

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

  •   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

      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!!

      This is a wonderful way to explore the river & canals. We were met by our very friendly Skipper Gordon. We boarded the boat ready for our two hour cruise with BYO bubbles and nibbles. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful homes and lucked the timing with a great sunset and a red harvest moon. The Duffy boat is super quiet and calm. Gordon is very knowledgeable pointing out houses and things of interest. This is a must do for your next visit to the Gold Coast.

      What a great relaxing experience, the 8 of us had a wonderful 2 hours cruising about the waterways by the grand homes and high rise hotels around the gold coast, drinking our BYO wine and champagne and nibbling on our BYO cheese and crackers. The sun beaming down the breeze off the water and the silent operation of the motor all added to the days experience. The boat is so easy to operate and manoeuvre. The views are well worth the cost, The staff are extremely helpful providing plenty of guidance and instruction prior to departure, the guide maps are easy to follow and full of information to help keep you safe.
    A great day experience and highly recommend to any group looking for a way to enjoy the sights sounds and each others company for a few hours of fun! More
