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 Aquaduck 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 Aquaduck 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.

So much fun our kids loved it. Our family had a great time. Fantastic for all ages, we can’t wait to go back and do it again in the next school holidays. The staff were lovely and fantastic with kids. Thank you. So much fun.
Some road trips and a trip in the river. Kids could have some driving experience in the river.

The experience was just ok but not great. They could add some more entertainment and fun activities in the duck, like playing some music, or small gifts to kids (like the captain hats). The price was not worth the experience. They gave some good information about the area and the house prices.

We had a lot of fun on our Aquaduck tour. Would highly recommend.

Great family fun!!! Especially kids, who get to have a turn at being the captain. Definitely a must-see and a must-do around Surfers Paradise, Main Beach. Lots of tidbit information, our driver and speaker were very lovely. Would highly recommend!!!

From land to water, a bus that turns into a boat. The best experience ever

Best thing to do in Surfers Paradise, particularly if you have kids, they had a blast!! It shows you around mostly all around the city then when goes into the water they let the children drive the boat, and hive all the kids certificates for driving it, the m c is a total vibe, she's very bubbly, we all had a laugh.

Great experience to do with little ones. Nice way to see a little more of the Gold Coast too.

Fun day out for family! Gets a little windy onboard whilst on the road, and be prepared to get a tiny bit wet, not much. Thanks to the awesome captain and tour guide :) Kids get to steer out on the water too. Lovely experience for the little ones. Recommended

Excellent tour guide with very amusing presentation of the city and the beach. Showed us the real estate while telling stories.

Awesome - informative, amusing, and enjoyable especially for kids. Will definitely recommend for families with young ones. Do make sure you buy tickets early and keep an eye out on promotions. Do make sure that you reach the meeting point on time to ensure that you catch the ride.
