One of the Gold Coast's most popular tours, the Aquaduck in Surfers Paradise allows you to discover the Gold Coast by land and sea without even leaving your seat! Your return journey will begin in the heart of Surfers Paradise, taking in views of the famous, golden Gold Coast beaches while waddling along the beachfront. The tour then heads past the 5 star resorts of Palazzo Versace and the Sheraton Mirage before ducking straight into the magnificent Broadwater at the Spit where the water-borne portion of the tour begins. The vehicle then "transforms" into a boat as the Aquaduck goes harbour cruising, taking in the sights of Seaworld, Marina Mirage, Australia Fair, Mariners Cove, The Yacht Club, fabulous millionaires homes, canals and more from the water!

With entertaining, fun commentary on all the highlights and the ability to see the best of the Gold Coast from all available angles, the Aquaduck is one of Surfers Paradise's true "must do experiences" - plus, don't forget kids get to drive and receive their FREE Captain Aquaduck license certificate!

We took the Aquaduck tour yesterday
Tomoko Kegoya 1 month ago

We took the Aquaduck tour yesterday. The staff were very friendly and kind. Guide could speak Japanese little bit. We had a really fun day. It was a good tour for the first day of Gold Coast visitors and family. Children could sit in the captain seat and had a photo opportunity. They were so happy.

What a great way to spend the morning
Emma Long 3 months ago

What a great way to spend the morning! We’ve always seen the Aquaduck and thought it was a tacky tourist thing. We were so pleasantly surprised that it was fun and informative. We learnt some interesting things about the Goldie we had never known despite coming here since we were kids. The kids had a great time driving the duck on the Broadwater and the guide made everyone feel involved through her questions and comments. The Captain made funny dad jokes and overall, it was a great experience. It will be our new, go-to when we have family visiting.

We took our daughter on this as a treat for her 4th birthday
Kirsty (Staff) 4 months ago

We took our daughter on this as a treat for her 4th birthday. She enjoyed it a lot but was a little nervous when the duck was in the water. She loved seeing all of the boats as we cruised along and even got to have a drive and receive a special certificate. We even saw a seaplane land nearby! However I was almost 8 months pregnant, and it was NOT enjoyable for me at all. Way too bumpy when going along the roads and I thought I might go into labour right then and there! Definitely, do not recommend this for people in their second or third trimester of pregnancy.

So much fun enjoyed it and very informative especially the host and the driver are so kind

Great afternoon out

Great afternoon out, road part a bit bumpy but water part was amazing, would love longer on the water, the crew were great and funny. Great for kids and families. Loved it.

Chose this tour as it looked super child friendly and it didnt disappoint
Claire Mastalerz 10 months ago

Chose this tour as it looked super child friendly and it didnt disappoint. Kids got to drive the boat and get a licence which they loved. Staff were so friendly and accommodating too couldn't fault them. The tour itself wasn't that exciting and there wasn't that much to see. Would be nice to see more of the canals but time is limited understandably. Was a fun ride for the kids though so glad we did it.

The Aquaduck experience was well worth doing
Kerri Bingle 11 months ago

The Aquaduck experience was well worth doing. My two little boys, 4 and 6 climbed down the steps, turned to me, and asked if they could go again, that day. We took the 10am trip, and left in a full bus. Unfortunately the weather turned, and it became quite cold, and the wind made the trip uncomfortable, so if you go, take a jacket. The talking duck also thrilled the boys. A great experience overall.

The experience was just ok
Jan Webb 11 months ago

The experience was just ok. I have lived on the Gold Coast for 40 years and found some of the information out of date and incorrect. $38 adult and $30 for a 4 year old is far too expensive. My granddaughter was looking forward to driving the boat and was in and out before I could blink. Customer service needs improvement.

We took our two children on the Aquaduck tour yesterday and were blown away by how fun it was for kids of all ages
Kristy Potts 1 year ago

We took our two children on the Aquaduck tour yesterday and were blown away by how fun it was for kids of all ages. My 10, 5 year old and my 40 something yr old husband enjoyed it immensely. The kids got to drive the boat and got a "licence ". It was a hoot. The captain and his tour guide where very informative and interactive with the tour as the tour went along. 5 stars! If you have an hour while on the GC, highly recommend taking the kids.

We took my mother on the Aqua Duck for her birthday

We took my mother on the Aqua Duck for her birthday, It was an absolutely fantastic tour. We enjoyed all the sights, and the tour guide had us laughing. We all are planning to go again and take other family members.
