Start the New Year with a bang with Sea World Cruises

Special Cruises

The chaos of 2020 mixed in with the mayhem of the holiday season, it’s not unusual to forget to plan the biggest night of the year. 2021 is almost upon us, and this year it is time to celebrate it in style aboard a Sea World Cruises New Years Eve Cruise. 

Say goodbye to 2020 and ring in the New Year with a bang! Put on your dancing shoes and adorn your party hats for the biggest night of the year. Cruise through the stunning Gold Coast canals and soak in the spectacular Surfers Paradise skyline. As you party further into the night and midnight grows close, we drift out towards Sea World Resort to bag the best seat in the house for their private fireworks spectacular. After a dazzling display, we return to Surfers at 12:30 am, where you can continue to celebrate the new year.

Let us tell you why celebrating New Year’s Eve with Sea World Cruises is the best way to mark the end of the year.

1. We do it all for you

There is no need to worry about who is bringing what food or if you have enough drink for the evening, we covered everything. Gather your crew, sit back, relax and our expert team will handle the rest. Meeting at Surfers Paradise at 8:15 pm for an 8:30 pm boarding, get excited for four hours of elite entertainment. You will feel like the very-important-person you are with premium customer service, gourmet canapes and a generous four-hour beverage package, including Chandon champagne, locally brewed craft beers and wine (included in ticket). Our friendly bar team are keen to show off their skills with an assortment of delicious cocktails to satisfy all your tastebuds (not included in drinks package).

2. Cruise in utter luxury

Indulge in the good life as you spend a perfect evening cruising in luxury aboard our brand new, air-conditioned vessel Spirit of Elston. Boasting a spacious open-air deck, take in the views of the sparkling Gold Coast skyline as you drift down shimmering waterways. Tap your toes or dance the night away to the soundtrack of the evening, performed by entertaining live music.

3. Secure the best seat in the house

No New Year’s Eve celebration is complete without a sparkling fireworks spectacular. This year, we cruise to Sea World Resort to take the best seat in the house to catch their private firework show setting alight at midnight. The best display in all of the Gold Coast, be the envy of all your landlocked friends as impressive pyrotechnics mesmerise you on the water.

 4. No crowds to be seen

There is no more need to stress about securing the perfect spot for the night’s sparkling finale. Exclusive and limited seating allows you to enjoy the night without ever feeling overcrowded. Our vessel is spacious both upstairs and downstairs, with room to spare. Our modern rooftop deck offers 360-degree views of the city, meaning you can unwind and enjoy your time on the water uninterrupted. And the best part of no crowds? You can get that Insta-shot of the year. Sparkling skies, shimmering city lights and pristine water, how much better does it get?

2020 was one crazy, to say the least, and you deserve to treat yourself by spending the year’s last few hours by relaxing and celebrating on a New Year’s Eve Cruise. Dress to impress and enjoy the most fantastic evening of the year.
