The experience of going from driving on the road to driving on water was a lot of fun! Then the kids had turns of driving on the water & got a certificate. They had so much fun, will be doing it again for sure 🤩

It was just awesome. Me, my wife & my son enjoyed a lot. Not to forget he (my son) got the certificate to drive Aquaduck... ha ha.. He was exited. In addition, Andy & Tracy were so good and kept the ball rolling throughout the session with their unbelivable energy. 100% enjoyment. I give 10/10. Thanks.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Duck experience yesterday. Very relaxing and informative. Would recommend the experience to anyone.

Take the “world’s first” amphibious Aquaduck Safari, which has been running since 1996. Departing from the heart of Surfers Paradise, tours aboard the amphibious ‘Duck’ combine informative city tours with a unique and exciting river cruise, traveling past the glitzy waterfront mansions of the rich and famous and taking in the spectacular views of the Gold Coast waterways and its famous landmarks.

The Gold Coast offers you a city tour by land and water, all in one perfect package. Whether you’re short on time or not, this tour shows you the best of Gold Coast in a jiff. Take to the streets of Surfers Paradise on Cavill Avenue, where your tour commences. Head out along the beach and soak in the glamor and beauty of the sun-kissed shores. Take in the breathtaking Pacific Ocean from your standpoint, while picking up facts about the Gold Coast you knew not of. You’ll also see the Southport Yacht Club, Palazzo Versace, and Marina Mirage before you head to the Broadwater.

Float about the shimmering waters of the Gold Coast as you enjoy this scenic cruise. This cruise offers you a unique view of the Gold Coast’s key sights, wildlife, and day-to-day activities of Australia’s busiest waterways. While on the water, you’re free to roam about the Aquaduck as you please. If you have little ones accompanying you, they’ll be allowed to drive the Aquaduck for a few and take home a Captain’s certificate for keepsake. This perfect day out with your gang of friends or family is one you don’t want to miss when in the Gold Coast.
