Super fun day for everyone! Tony and Lauren were absolute hoots, and we all enjoyed their terrible duck jokes. 10/10 would do it again. The kids got to drive the boat and got a certificate which they... loved. Also very informative tour about all the local activities which as new residents to the area we appreciated. Thank you again for an awesome tour 😀read more

Captain Tony and Margie were brilliant crew for this tour. Very knowledgeable and kept it humorous... or at times at least tried! Captain Tony created a welcoming environment for when it was time for... the kids to drive the duck in the water, they happily climbed up on his chair and helped him steer while he sat down on a chair next to the captains seat. I don't do well on boats, but this trip was so calm and smooth I felt very relaxed. It was a wonderful experience and my family and I will be back on board again.read more

Highly recommend AquaDuck for all ages! Our second time with Skipper Tony, who is such a great Skipper. He is super fun, and extremely knowledgeable, and we always enjoy his jokes. Skipper Tony... really made our trip extra special on both occasions. Margie was our tour guide this time round and what a fabulous personality she has. Margie really made the experience so much more fun! Such a great experience! A fantastic way to see the city, very budget friendly and the best part is getting to see the kids jump in the Captains seat!read more

What an awesome tour! Adam and Margy are great guides. They were friendly and informative. The vessel was clean and comfortable. We would be happy to recommend the Aquaduck tour for everyone, but... especially young families. The kids will love driving the Duck and getting their own Skipper’s certificate! 5 star tour! Thanks guys, Boyd & Lyn.read more

Family friendly activity, kids can drive the Aquaduck on the water, great friendly staff, safety conscious for patrons, reception need to have clearer pickup point noted, we saw passengers standing,... waiting everywhere.The trip on Road is very bouncy, sore backs and the initial climb up and down a steep boarding ladder can be a challenge for seniors. Merchandise promotions on the trip is offered, plush toys etc, take $$ little ones will want someread more

We loved the Aquaduck! Ross and Paul were both excellent hosts that gave plenty of live commentary on the sites and advice on the best places to eat and fun facts of the Gold Coast. It also gave us... so many ideas of other sites to visit during our stay We had our 3 and 9 year old kids with us who loved it especially when they had a turn at driving the Aquaduck on the water. Highly recommend , it is for all ages and and would do it again. Thank you Aquaduck team!!read more

Had a blast with my family and my son got his license after driving the duck which was just super awesome for him. I am a local but wanted to have a fun time with the family and this was a great day... out on glitter strip and water ways. Margie was our host and was just full of information around the city and very professional and funny as well. We had a blast and certainly recommend anyone to give the local business a go you won't be disappointed. Only thing to say is the Duck doesn't have any suspension on the road so it is a bit of a bumpy ride if you get car sick I recommend you sit at the front but once you are in the water its smooth sailing.read more

We made a late booking for a family trip on Reggie - yes, the Aquaduck has a name! The booking process was fast and easy, and we found the price very reasonable for a family experience we’d all... enjoy. Our hosts, Jake and Josie, were friendly, professional, fun and were careful to ensure our safety and comfort. I won’t spoil the tour for you, but there were some pretty big names attached to the canal-front homes we saw. My 5 & 9 year old kids loved having the opportunity to drive Reggie in the water. This was such a great way to spend an afternoon, and I’d recommend it for families and folks looking for a relaxed tourist experience in gorgeous Mooloolaba.read more

My sister, granddaughter and I all took this tour. It was very informative and the guides knew their history of the coast and didn’t read once from any brochures or devices. We had a really great... time just doing things together. My granddaughter even got to drive Reggie on the water. She said it was lots of fun. We would definitely recommend this tour to visitors or even locals(as I am).read more

This is a must do experience for all visitors to our beautiful Sunny Coast. It’s also a fantastic way for locals to perhaps learn a little about our own backyard.Both the guide and driver/captain... were very friendly yet professional. Both very knowledgeable and added enough light hearted commentary to be engaging the entire trip.The Duck was spotless and well maintained. The audio was loud and clear .Even on a wet day our group of 10 really enjoyed ourselves.Highly recommended 👍😁read more

Absolutely wonderful - definitely a must-do and strongly recommended!A true Gold Coast institution, as local residents we went on an Aqua Duck tour for fun and to support a local business. Exceeded... all expectations! Staff were so knowledgeable and friendly, the 'duck' itself was a great ride on land and water with changing views left right and centre. Kids and adults will enjoy immensely.If you're a local or a visitor, an hour out of your day will be worth it, you will learn lots and have fun. Seriously good. Go Aquaduck!!!read more

Very impressive Aquaduck experience. Really enjoyed it, the audio was good, even with the duck interrupting time to time, which made it more funnier. The road was very bumpy but the waterways were... nice and absolute beautiful. Pictures were offered at a $10 charge, all i can suggest is making the Aquaduck bigger and better by having a ramp or lift for wheelchair and maybe a toilet onboard, even if its underneath the seating.read more
