Coasting Around the beautiful Gold Coast canals is the ideal way to unwind and release pent up stress. Nestled amongst Marina Cove's super yachts, Coasting Around Boat Hire offer quaint orange donut boats sheltered with umbrellas for your perfect little getaway. You don't even need a boat licence. The donut boat comes with a 5hp Mercury outboard motor. It comfortably seats up to 10 people on cushioned waterproof seating based around a grooved tabletop designed to place your plates and glasses with a centrepiece that can be used as an ice bucket for your drinks. You'll need to bring your own ice, food and drinks to enjoy either a BBQ, picnic or cocktails al fresco.
Coasting Around offers the ultimate 'al fresco' experience where you can suntan while you enjoy the ultimate:
Morning or afternoon tea cruise
Cocktail party cruise
Birthday party cruise
There are many therapeutic benefits to enjoying sunshine, serenity, fresh air and the calming effect of lapping water. Why not enjoy a swim while you're at it, or throw out a fishing line and see what bites.
The photographic opportunities are abundant with beautiful scenery from waterside mansions, superyachts, dolphins, pelicans and plenty of seagulls brazenly circling your floating donut in the hope of finding a morsel or two to devour.
Bring Your Music
For the ultimate good vibe experience, bring along a boom box. Dancing may be a little restricted on board but the music will help drown out the noise of the 2 stroke motor.
Spot the Dolphins
For those dolphin lovers, keep your eyes on the water as you may be treated to a lovely surprise of dolphins frolicking in the calm waters. It will make your day to see these beautiful creatures gracing the waterways and leaping into the air to catch your attention and admiration.
What are you waiting for? Coasting Around Boat Hire only has a limited number of donut boats so book in early and experience the therapeutic benefits of coasting around the Gold Coast canals and waterways.
There is ample street parking or free parking at Marina Mirage. Coasting Around is located at the end of the main pier to the left of the Helicopter Tours building.
Drive-it-Yourself Boat Hire
Coasting Around's friendly staff will welcome you and give you a brief safety demonstration and 'Drive-it-Yourself' instructions. You'll need to arrive 15 minutes early so it doesn't cut into your hire time.
Think about how many hours you will hire the boat for as there is no toilet on board. There is the option of anchoring at one of the parks to use the public amenities if you don't mind getting your feet wet or are planning a swim close to the shore.
Hi Neil. It's a lovely way to spend a few hours. No life jackets required, except for children who might be enticed to jump overboard! I can't remember what the boat is made of but no chance of popping this thing. It's solid! Give it a try. So much fun.
