Who We Are

Budget Cruises Gold Coast is a boat hire and cruise provider with a head office based in Southport, Queensland. Our boat pickup locations vary all down the coastline for easy access so we’ll confirm where to meet before departure.

Our Business

We offer sightseeing cruises in the morning, midday and for sunset viewing. 

Our onboard BBQ is ready to cook up breakfast, lunch or dinner with Australian classics. If you join one of our public cruises, you’ll get the chance to see the Gold Coast from its best vantage point, the water!Glide past Q1 down the famous canals and spot local attractions like Seaworld, Marina Mirage and Surfer’s Paradise. Experience the white sands of Wavebreak Island and swim or snorkel in style using gear provided for free with the use of our pontoon boat.

We also have kayaks and inflatable tubes available to keep the good times rolling. Suppose you’re after something more private for friends and family only. In that case, we hire the boat out for birthdays, bucks parties and hens parties, Christmas events and more! 


With a family focus, we keep affordability in mind when setting our prices so that more people can jump aboard and join the fun! It’s important to us that everybody can access our services and enjoy themselves without having to pay premiums.

How It Works

All our boat hires and cruises are skippered by a licensed professional who pilots the boat for you, so all you have to do is relax and enjoy. Our boat can fit up 16 people on board so keep this in mind when planning your event.
