Looking for the Gold Coast's best sunset views? There is no better place to watch the sunset on the Gold Coast than relaxing on a yacht on the Broadwater! No seriously...
There is something so magical about a sunset over the water. But surrounded by it? Well that's something else...
So come and join us on our sunset cruise as the sun sinks behind the mountains of the Gold Coast Hinterland and casts a glow across the calm waters of the Gold Coast Broadwater.

Sundowners on the water...
Join us for a cruise of the Gold Coast Broadwater aboard our beautiful Seawind 1050 Sailing Catamaran. With no more than 30 guests on board, this sunset cruise is laid back, relaxed and fun. The skipper will drop in some local knowledge for those who are interested. Guests can relax on the foredeck, inside the main cabin, or on a comfy bean bag to the sounds of some very cool tunes and enjoy a few drinks. We curate an intimate cruise experience with a social atmosphere. Our vessel ‘Spirit of Gwonda’ is often joined by wild bottle-nose dolphins as they come in search of their evening meal and being nice and close to the water gets you nice and close to the dolphins if they decide to join your cruise. You will enjoy one complimentary glass of sparkling wine, beer or soft drink and nibbles and further drinks can be purchased on board at only $5 per drink.

“We did the 2-hour sunset cruise and very glad we did! The Catamaran was clean and spacious. The staff were friendly and provided us with a complimentary drink and nibbles, some stunning photographs and chill vibing tunes as we sailed into the sunset. A must do on the Gold Coast!” TripAdvisor
