Dine with your partner in Romantic privacy aboard your own private luxury Gondola while cruising the majestic canals of the Gold Coast. Enjoy the comfort of sheepskin covered seats, plush cushions and soft background music as you glide smoothly through the sheltered canals of Main Beach and Surfers Paradise, past the multi-million dollar waterfront mansions of the rich and famous and their equally expensive and lavish motor yachts.
Whether you are looking for the ultimate in Romance and Magic or are merely wanting to sit back and enjoy the experience of a lifetime; nothing will come close to the luxury, ambiance and setting of a Gold Coast Gondola cruise.
Although inspired by the Venetian ceremonial gondola, these gondolas have been specifically designed for Australian conditions while providing passengers with total privacy and the ultimate in comfort and luxury. Unlike the Venetian gondolas, these gondolas incorporate a fixed weatherproof cabin with a rigid soundproof panel separating the gondolier from yourselves, thus affording you absolute privacy.
The elegant and distinctive cabin interiors surround you in comfort and luxury as you sink into plush sheep skin covered seats. The dining table is beautifully appointed and includes table flowers, candle lantern, ice bucket and glasses. Fleecy rugs are also provided in cooler weather.
So just sit back, relax and enjoy the soft background music and the gentle sound of lapping water as you glide smoothly through a wonderland of scenic beauty by day or shimmering lights by night.
Although the Gondolas are in commercial survey to carry up to 6 passengers, all cruises operate on an exclusive charter basis. This means that if you make a booking, you and your partner or friend will be the only ones in the cabin. The gondolier (driver) will be out of sight on the back of the Gondola behind a fixed soundproof panel which forms the back wall of the luxury cabin.
To ensure that your experience is as enjoyable and as memorable as possible, here are some helpful hints:
- Please be sure to arrive at the Gondola departure point at least 10 minutes prior to your cruise departure time. Because all cruises operate on a pre-booked charter basis, late arrival will result in a shortened cruise duration.
- Do remember to bring your camera as your hostess will happily take several photos for you.
- During cooler weather it is advisable to bring a warm jacket or jumper.
Price is Valid for 2 persons
This cruise is available daily from 11-00 a.m. as a lunch or evening dinner cruise.
The Gondola cruises are extremely popular with locals and visitors and as a result are often fully booked well in advance particularly over weekends and public holidays. It is therefore advisable to book early in order to secure their preferred date and departure time.
Within 48 hours of receipt of your booking request form, Gold Coast Gondolas will contact you in order to confirm the date and departure time of your experience. This verbal confirmation will be followed up by an email confirmation which will include a copy of the special Gondola menu together with a description and map of how to find the Gondola departure point.
Time determined at booking depending on availability
The Gondolas incorporate a fixed weatherproof cabin with canvas curtains and clear drop-down panels which can be open or closed to suit prevailing weather conditions. In the event of rain you will stay dry, cozy and warm inside your private cabin. In the unlikely event of extreme weather conditions, your cruise may need to be rescheduled.
