What people are saying about Southport

The boat arrived on time and we were warmly greeted by the crew. Inside it was very clean. The seating in the dining area was allocated which is a great idea that should be advertised as it will stop the impatient passengers who 'have' to get on first. The bar was well stocked with a great variety, I liked the local craft beers. The buffet was plentiful, fresh and delicious. The upper deck had great seating options from chairs/tables to couches and love seats. The 360' view was fantastic. Overall the boat was very well maintained and even the toilets were spotless. I wasn't expecting much as the price was fantastic but the whole cruise exceeded my expectations and was one of the things I'm glad I did on the Gold Coast.

Excellent way to spend a couple of hours - a fantastic cruise checking out the waterside homes along with a beautiful buffet lunch including fresh king prawns! The friendly professional staff take care of everything. Highly recommended ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️

Excellent staff/crew, great food, easy relaxed atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. Unbelievable views of the Gold Coast most people never get to see and appreciate.

Was a great night with great food. The top deck had two great “love seats” in each corner that made for a comfy scenic night with a few cocktails.

The food was awesome and the staff were amazing. A perfect way to celebrate our daughters 30th bday
