The Gold Coast is beautiful all year round, but never more so than in summer. Why not celebrate the holidays in lavish style while seeing the rivers, canals, and beaches of Queensland in a whole new way by chartering a party boat for a group of friends or family? Party Cruises Gold Coast can take you for a relaxing cruise up the Nerang River, a fully-catered family barbecue with kayaking off Wave Break Island, or a bucks’ party with the boys with the beers cold and the sound system pumping, and anything in between.
Party Cruises Gold Coast’s vessel, the Mirage Sun 33, can accommodate up to 16 guests, plus an experienced skipper who’ll take you anywhere you want to go, as long as there’ll be time to get back. The boat is based at Southport Yacht Club’s award-winning marina, but you can arrange your pick up or drop off at a public or private jetty along the coastline. It’s a pontoon, which means it’s large and flat, with plenty of room to stand and sit comfortably. It has one area that is open to fresh sea air and another that’s enclosed to protect you from the sun, wind, and rain, but it has huge windows to give you breathtaking views of the Gold Coast.
If you hire a party boat, you might as well go all out and make it really special. With Party Cruises Gold Coast, you get a first-rate charter boat service with five-star reviews on Google at an affordable price. Your cruise can go for three hours, four hours, or all day (from 10 am to 4 pm), and what you do with that time is up to you. Your captain can take you along the Gold Coast Broadwater and meandering through the canals, past luxury marinas and landmarks like Sea World, or up the Nerang River, or any combination you like–the only limitation is time.
Christmas Party Cruise
Get the family together for the kind of Christmas celebration you won’t find anywhere else in the world–on a luxury party boat surrounded by the beauty of the Gold Coast. You can even take a year off from sweating over a turkey in the kitchen and have a fully-catered barbecue with one of two great packages. But if you want to stay in charge of Christmas lunch, you can also BYO food and drink. A chartered cruise can also be a great choice for your work Christmas party. The Mirage Sun 33 is equipped with a karaoke machine, so you may see a new side of your co-workers. Just be sure to book soon, as pre-Christmas dates are filling fast.
A party cruise can be family-friendly, so take the family out for an experience they’ll remember forever. Our boat has toys on board, but the Gold Coast is home to almost 600 species of native animals, including marine mammals, so there should be plenty to occupy their attention. You can take the kids up to Wave Break Island for some swimming, snorkelling, or kayaking, but be sure they listen to mum and leave half an hour after your barbecue lunch before going for a swim.
Bucks’ Party Cruise
Have you got a mate who’s saying a final goodbye to single life? A bucks’ party on the water means you can play all the nostalgic hits from your misspent youth as loud as you want on our stereo system (and sing along as loud as you want if things get rowdy later on). You can even arrange to have waitresses on board to serve your drinks. How close you stick to the traditional bucks’ party template is up to you–depending on your bachelor’s personality, you might just want to have a few quiet drinks in the afternoon as you talk about old times. Or, you might want the party to end all parties, in which case you can get dropped off in the city when your cruise is over so the festivities can continue.
Hens’ Party Cruise
Don’t let the groom have all the fun; give the bride a hens’ party to remember by hiring a private party boat. Your hens’ party can be whatever you want it to be. Keep it relaxed with a cruise up the canals of the Gold Coast, sipping champagne as you glide past sights like the opulent Palazzo Versace and the Marina Mirage. If things get noisy later on, there’s enough space for dancing while the bride sings along to the karaoke machine–the captain can take you far enough from shore that no one will hear if you’re off key.
Why not combine a day out on a private chartered boat with a spot of fishing? The creeks, rivers, and canals of the Gold Coast have plenty of fish, including flathead, whiting, and bream, and you might also have some luck fishing offshore–ask the captain if he knows any good spots. If you catch some fish, the Mirage Sun 33 has cooled food storage, so you can transport your catch home or keep it until you find a good spot to cook it on the large stainless steel barbecue (or you can arrange to have it done for you). In case you don’t catch any fish, you might like to BYO food or grab one of the reasonably-priced catered barbecue packages.
If you have some guests coming who you don’t see very often, a chartered boat can be a great way to show them the best of the Gold Coast. There should be plenty of photo opportunities to capture your memories–whether it’s spotting a dugong (if you’re lucky) or getting new pictures of family or friends with the deep blue waters and clear skies as a backdrop. Even if you go out on one of the few days the skies aren’t clear, there’s no reason for your day to be ruined, as the boat is fully enclosed to shelter you from the elements.
Cruise Through The Holidays On The Gold Coast
Private boat hire is not just for the rich, and it’s not just for people who can sail a boat. It’s for everyone who wants to enjoy the best the Gold Coast has to offer. Party Cruises Gold Coast has an option for you, whatever you want to celebrate these holidays or any time of year.
