Join Wyndham Cruises for a lovely river cruise on the waterways of the Gold Coast as the afternoon sun glitters off the water and provides an amazingly relaxed atmosphere!
Kick back and enjoy a drink and a tasty savoury snack platter including a range of cheeses, crackers, chips, dips and other finger food either out in the open air on our vessel’s spacious upper viewing deck or down below in the comfortable surrounds of the newly refurbished lower deck with its huge, expansive viewing windows on those windier or cooler days.
Few Gold Coast cruises offer such a great sightseeing / food experience, particularly at this spectacular time of day prior to sunset when the sun is still shining yet allows you to avoid the worst of the mid-day UV rays.
Over the course of 1.5 hours, you’ll be taken on a journey to see the extravagant riverfront homes of the Gold Coast, the range of local landmarks, and learn a bunch of interesting facts from the commentary provided by our experienced skipper (available in multiple languages). For the ideal way to explore the best of the Gold Coast – at one of the most reasonable prices around – book an afternoon Gold Coast cruise with the city’s longest-running river cruise company online today.
