THERE’S A FUN NEW WAY TO CRUISE THE GOLD COAST WATERWAYS AND IT COMES IN THE MOST UNIQUE FORM.
Most watercraft are streamlined and built for aerodynamics. But there’s a fleet of fun new circular (yes: CIRCULAR!) boats doing the literal rounds of the Gold Coast – and guests are having a whale of a time in them!
Coasting Around BBQ hire boats are affectionately known as “coasters”. These circular inflatable boats feature a large central table with interchangeable ice tray or barbecue station, surrounded by comfortable seating for up to 10 people. They are making waves for providing a unique floating group experience, perfect for birthdays, corporate team building activities or groups of mates just looking for some floating fun.
Coasters also feature a bluetooth speaker system, LED lighting and shade sail umbrella for on-water comfort. The coasters are self-drive, each with a 5hp Mercury outboard motor that allows any adult to be the skipper – no boat licence required. With the central barbecue, Coasting-Around offers guests the option of BYO food or they can arrange a catering package from a selection of local suppliers, on request. And of course, BYO alcohol is permitted provided you have a designated driver (who stays under 0.05).
There are three coasters in the fleet, able to entertain groups of up to 30 passengers at one time – book one or the whole fleet (fleet discounts apply).
Coasting Around boat hire operates throughout the beautiful Gold Coast waterways, with pick-up locations in Budds Beach, Surfers Paradise and Marina Mirage, Main Beach.
