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. A family friendly and relaxed way to see the Gold Coast's main highlights, get quacking and book an Aquaduck tour online today.

The booking is easy and flexible to change, we had not utilise the package due to bad weather in Gold Coast. We had postponed the trip to the next school holiday. Hopefully the weather will be good the next time. Thank you Experience Oz, we use it every holiday.

My family and I went on the AquaDuck tour and even though the day was filled with rain, we still enjoyed the sightseeing on offer. Highlight was being on the water and just able to see the dolphins that day.

Using a voucher that was part of our accommodation was super easy. No hassles, no fuss, Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Would definitely and highly recommend using the services of Experience Oz to everyone. Thanks for helping us create some memories xxx

Such a fun tourist activity for the whole family to enjoy.

We loved the Aquaduck, it was such a fun and unusual sort of way to explore the beautiful Surfers Paradise and surrounding areas. The kids were stoked that they were allowed to have a turn at driving the Aquaduck boat, the tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly.

Fun and exciting tour! Got to experience what the Gold Coast has to offer.
Shainen Tejada 1 year ago

Fun and exciting tour, our captain and driver were entertaining and accomodating. Would highly recommend this tour for you to see what the Gold Coast has to offer! It’s so relaxing to sit on the Aquaduck and explore the riverside then go on the land to explore more of the street of the Gold Coast.

Best experienced with Aquaduck and super easy bought ticket online with Experience Oz! Thumbs up.

Very worth of money with best travel experienced with Aquaduck. Long journey, helpful, friendly staff and clean boat. Really impressed me, highly recommended and will come back. Don’t forget to buy souvenir from them, very cute and affordable prices.

Couldn’t hear the people talking on the microphone so didn’t know what was happening. Have been on before but wouldn’t go again.

Couldn’t hear the people talking on the microphone. Have been before but wouldn’t go again. Wasn’t allowed to put the plastic blinds down so it was windy and freezing cold making it not enjoyable. The woman talking spoke too fast and quietly same as the man talking so couldn’t hear anything which was disappointing.

Fantastic experience for the whole family. Kids loved driving the Aquaduck!
Krystal Loveday 1 year ago

Great experience for the whole family. Our girls loved driving the AquaDuck and then receiving a driver certificate! Informative and fantastic commentary from the guide and the driver throughout the tour while enjoying the Surfers Paradise views/attractions. Would definitely recommend.

Great views, wonderful team, 100% involvement. Fantastic for all ages.

Excellent trip, fantastic commentary from the guide and the driver, great atmosphere. The ability for the kids to drive the Duck is an absolute hit. Both of my children here super inspired and excited - but it's equally fun for adults too. Thank you very much, will for sure recommend to friends and acquaintances!

Perfect family adventure. Starting off in Surfers Paradise and making the way around the Gold Coast. Going from land to water was great fun. Kids got to drive the Aqua Duck to so that’s a huge bonus they loved it. Even scoring themselves a certificate.

Great fun for the family, very informative. Friendly staff! Had a really fun time. Thanks Aqua Duck. We will be sure to pass on the good word to any friends looking to visit QLD as they would love the adventure too. May even be back one day to do the sunset tour.

Punctuality, value, professional, clean, organised.
Shree Shrestha 1 year ago

The staff were friendly and kind. The tour went smoothly and got to see the amazing views of Gold Coast on the road as well as on the water on this tour. Even more fun for the kids as they get to ride the Aquaduck and get the certificate as well. It's a good value for money. Go on the original Aquaduck.
