Looking for a magical and memorable Valentine's Day experience on the Gold Coast this year? Avoid crowded restaurants and instead charter your own private yacht for an intimate morning, afternoon or evening on the Gold Coast Broadwater with the one you love.

Some ideas for your Valentines Private Boat Charter include;

  • An idyllic brunch picnic sail,
  • An afternoon cruise with swimming, SUPs and sailing
  • A romantic private sunset cruise with your own private chef

We will be offering private yacht charters all day on Valentines Day and each option can be customised to suit your wishes. Perhaps you may even wish to host a special marriage proposal on board this Valentine's Day?

Choose from our daytime or evening sailing options to experience the Gold Coast in a different light. During the day, our boats are equipped for beach landings so you may wish to stop at an Island for swimming, SUP'ing and relaxing. As dusk falls, the sunset over the Gold Coast hinterland mountains is a delight to view from the water, and after dark the Surfers Paradise Skyline puts on a stunning light show for our return to Marina Mirage.

Our beautiful Seawind 1000XL is the ideal vessel for couples due to its intimate design, and offers the relaxation of sailing in complete comfort. The trampoline-style foredeck is a favourite spot for snuggling and gives an immersive sailing experience with 360 degree views of the Gold Coast’s stunning waterways. It is also the ideal spot for spying the friendly bottle-nose dolphins who frequently ride the bow waves of our catamarans, so close you can almost touch... If you are after a little added luxury our deluxe vessel Oceans offer all of the above but with a little added luxe and a lot of extra space.

We would love to chat with you via phone or email any time and start planning your charter which can be fully customised to your wishes.

Private Brunch Charter Package

Set sail on the Beautiful Gold Coast Broadwater aboard your own skippered private catamaran charter.  Departing from the prestigious Marina Mirage you will discover calm waters and beautiful islands with impressive views back to the Gold Coast City skyline, reminding you how close you are to the city yet feeling a million miles away.   The crystal clear waters of the Gold Coast are teaming with wildlife and you may even spot a dolphin or two while sea-eagles soar overhead.

Your boat is set up for beach landings meaning you’ll have the sand between your toes in no time.  Fancy a quick dip or to try your hand at Stand Up Paddleboarding or beach volleyball?   Your friendly crew will be on hand to help you with the range of activities available on board for your use at your island destination depending on your cruise duration. Please discuss with our helpful booking team.

Where can we go?

We operate in the calm, protected waters of the Gold Coast Broadwater. Where to go very much depends on what you would like to do and how long your boat charter is for so please feel free to discuss this with our team. In a 3 hour charter during the day our guests usually love a swim stop at Wavebreak Island where you can enjoy the range of island activities on board. Your skipper is knowledgeable in the local area and will make recommendations based on the conditions on the day.  If you don't wish to swim in a 3 hour charter you instead opt to sail further north along the inside of South Stradbroke Island and see the millionaires mansions at Sovereign Islands.

With a longer charter you may also have time for a snorkel stop* or spend a little longer chilling at Wavebreak and enjoy a relaxing lunch.

In the evening we usually recommend sailing north to watch the sunset and returning to the southern part of the Broadwater to see the city lights after dark which are just beautiful.

*(We are currently unable to provide snorkel gear due to Covid restrictions. Please BYO gear if you wish to snorkel on your charter)

FAQ's

Where do your boats depart from?

Our boats are berthed at Marina Mirage. Please see the 'contact us' page on our website for further details and a map. Marina Mirage is about 10 mins from Surfers and 15 mins from Broadbeach.

Where can I park?

There is plentiful free parking at Marina Mirage/Mariners Cove which you are permitted to use.  Please check signage at time of parking and if parking overnight consider street parking to avoid towing.

What about other transport options?

There are lots of ways to get to the boat! The most popular (and cost effective/convenient) is often via Taxi or Uber.

Can I BYO food and drink?

Yes if you would like to bring your own food and drinks on board that is completely fine.

(BYO food and drinks may be affected by Government restrictions due to Covid, please check at the time of your charter what the current restrictions are.)

I am short on time can you please help me out with catering/drinks?

Yes, we also offer catering and drinks service for your convenience. Please request our full catering list as advance bookings are required. We offer a range of catering options from grazing boards, to tapas and private chefs.

(Catering and drinks service options may be affected by Government restrictions due to Covid, please check at the time of your charter what the current restrictions are.)

Do you have Eskies on board?

Yes we do and we also provide ice. The eskies are very large and can be used for food or drink.

Will I get seasick?

Nope. We operate in the calm, protected waters of the Gold Coast Broadwater. We do not go offshore (into the open ocean) so we do not experience large waves. Our catamarans are very stable, and do not have the same side to side rocking motion as experienced by single hull vessels so you won't get seasick :-).

What happens if it rains?

First of all remember...a little rain doesn't stop a great time on our boats especially in the warm Gold Coast endless summer... But do rest assured that we have a very generous wet weather policy as we want you to enjoy your time on board the boat, so if there is torrential rain or storms at the time you will be able to cancel or reschedule your cruise. Please see the full booking policy provided with your invoice for full details or contact our team.

Are your charters suitable for guests with limited mobility?

We have welcomed several guests on board with limited mobility. However we do realise that each individual is different in terms of ability and what they are comfortable with. Please take a look at the 360 tours on the 'Our Boats' page for an ideal of getting around the boats and do bear in mind a big step up (or carry) is required to board the boats at the marina. Our friendly team will be happy to discuss further to ensure you and your guests are comfortable prior to making a booking.

Why should we choose you over another operator?

This list is endless. Check out our reviews, check out our socials, speak to someone who has been with us before (you would be surprised, you will probably know someone who has been with us?), and we pride ourselves on the fact that our guests keep coming back (some have sailed with us as many as 8 times). We go out of our way to create the best experience possible and are constantly updating, re-inventing, reinvesting and reviewing. We're not happy until you're happy and we want you to come back again and again. We can blow our own trumpet from time to time right? :-)
