I recently rented a cruise from Budget Cruises, and I have to say, it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. From the moment I contacted them to inquire about availability to the day we disembarked, the entire process was seamless and stress-free.


Our boat is moored in Southport at the Southport Yacht Club Marina on the Gold Coast. We offer pickup and drop off at different points along the Gold Coast coastline. If you have access to a private jetty or prefer to be picked up at a public jetty, we can accommodate you where possible. Call us to discuss your proposed location.

Yes absolutely! We understand that not everyone has the need or the funds to hire the entire boat. Our public cruises are more affordable than private boat hire and cater more to the needs of locals and tourists who seek to experience something different and an experienced skipper to do the hard work. We regularly schedule cruises with a variety of sightseeing destinations.

We currently have three cruises available to the public for purchase. To make the most of your leisure time and get a head start on your morning, book our Breakfast Island Cruise.

Not a morning person, then try our BBQ Lunch Cruise and combine it with the kids or a few friends and make some memories while you enjoy all the magnificent scenery and marine life Mother Nature delivers.

 Were you looking for the perfect second or third date idea? Had a day seeing the Hinterland but feel the need to watch the sunset while floating on the water? We would love to suggest that you slip away from the bright city lights, take in the trillions of stars above your head, set the scene for a romantic proposal, or simply deliver the perfect backdrop to cap off your Sunset Dinner Cruise

With our private boat hire, you certainly can choose a custom route or destination for our pontoon boat. You can opt for a Canal Cruise, River Cruise or Island Cruise. If you hire the entire boat, you can indulge in the luxury of all three! You are only limited by time constraints and the vessel’s legal limitations. If you don’t know the area, or you need some ideas to pull off the perfect date, call us, and we will be happy to help get you squared away with a quote and suggestions. It’s all up to you!

The maximum legal capacity of our party boat is 22 people. However, for safety reasons and guest management, along with additional crew required from time to time and booking, we allow 16 guests. That number does not include the skipper and any crew counted in addition where required.

No. Even though all our hires meet the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s category for no license required to operate in sheltered waters, each of our hires is inclusive of an experienced skipper who steers and pilots the boat. At this time, the boat is not available for hire without our professional skipper at the helm.

We offer two options with our private boat hire and private boat cruises. The first option most certainly allows our guests to be completely self-catering. If you choose that option, then we provide the BBQ facilities for you to cook your food, and we can even cook it for you.

The second option is that you can purchase a catered pack from us when you book your party boat hire and BBQ package. We offer several catered packages that remove the stress and time required to put something together yourself. If you tell us your reason for hiring the party boat or the BBQ boat, we can even put together a tailor-made package for your special occasion. 

The prices and content of the packages would be POA and dependant on the budget category chosen. We start with a basic sausage sizzle and side salads for $ 15 pp up to our range of steak and multiple side dishes for $35 pp.

All alcohol is BYO. We are happy to provide ice chests to keep your drinks cold. We recommend that spirits are premixed in cans or bottles for convenience, and that wine or champagne has enough disposable flutes and glasses for your guests (with a few spares in case).

You are not able to fish from the boat on public cruises. If you opt to hire the party boat privately, then by all means, if you ask your skipper nicely, he might take you to his favourite places for you to drop in a line and hopefully pull up a fresh fish to add to your BBQ meal. 

At present, due to COVID-19 restrictions, you will be required to BYO fishing rods and tackle.
