2.5 Hour Gold Coast Waterways Cruise

Fire up the group chat and consider your weekend sorted with an afternoon of sipping, tasting and live music on the stunning Gold Coast waterways.

A gentle breeze, chilled tunes, frosty drinks at the bar, and tasty bites on the menu – an afternoon on our signature vessel, the Spirit of Elston is the perfect way to wind down from a busy day or begin a great night out. Setting sail from Surfers Paradise each Saturday and Sunday, expand your taste buds as you sip your way through the unique menu releases of our guest distillery, brewery or winery of the month featuring seasonal flavours and local ingredients. Cruise down stunning waterways while sitting back and relaxing in an inviting casual space while you listen to live tunes from a local artist. When the friendly banter and afternoon sunshine works up an appetite, we’ll light up the barbie with a gourmet sausage sizzle with all the trimmings from artisanal delicatessens, Dunva Smallgoods.
