Coasting Around Boat Hire

Coasting Around Queensland’s Gold Coast

Coasting Around the beautiful Gold Coast canals is an 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. The tabletop centrepiece is designed to be used as an ice bucket for your drinks. Although the tabletop is grooved to enable you to place your plates and glasses we did have a few drink spills when more zealous passerby boats caused some waves. You’ll need to bring your own ice, food and drinks to enjoy either a BBQ, picnic or cocktails al fresco.

The Ultimate ‘al fresco’ Cruising Experience

Coasting Around offers the ultimate ‘al fresco’ cruising experience where you can suntan while you enjoy the ultimate:

  • Lunch cruise
  • Brunch cruise
  • Morning or afternoon tea cruise
  • Cocktail party cruise
  • Birthday party cruise
  • BBQ cruise

Therapeutic Benefits of Cruising

There are many therapeutic benefits to cruising. The simple act of hiring a boat, which is very cheap when you split the cost between ten people, will have you enjoying sunshine, serenity, fresh air and the calming effect of lapping water. There’s the option to anchor the boat and enjoy a swim, or throw out a fishing line and see what bites.

Cruising Photographic Opportunities

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 Cruise 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

Dolphin lovers have a good chance of being treated to a lovely surprise of dolphins frolicking in the calm waters, as we did. It made our day to see these beautiful creatures gracing the waterways and leaping into the air to catch our attention and admiration.

Book Early

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.

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.

No Boat Licence Required Boat Hire

Hiring a boat has never been easier. There is no boat licence required. The donut boat comes with an umbrella and 5hp Mercury outboard motor. It comfortably seats up to 10 people and is set up to enjoy either a BBQ, picnic or cocktails al fresco. It’s an ideal way to spend the day exploring the Gold Coast canals.

Hourly hire rate is discounted for two or more hours and gift vouchers are available. Check out the website for more information and your booking options. Coasting Around

"I secured Jacquelin’s services to edit my book. The book was transformed under her guidance and I was grateful for the clear-sighted direction which she imparted with logical and also creative reasoning.
