Top Tips

Cruise along the shimmering canals of the Gold Coast, framed by the dazzling city skyline, aboard an unforgettable dining experience. Departing from the convenient location of Main Beach, step aboard the luxurious vessel Spirit of Elston for a unique and delightful evening on the water.

Enjoy dinner inside the comfort of the enclosed main deck with the soundtrack of live music. Indulge in chef-prepared meals with seasonal produce like Queensland ocean king prawns, roasted leg of lamb with rosemary crust, and grilled barramundi in coconut bisque with steamed rice. End your meal with desserts like rich chocolate cake or passionfruit cheesecake.

Choose from a selection of locally crafted beer, and wine, or indulge in one of our expertly crafted cocktails from the onboard bar. After dinner, venture upstairs to our 360-degree view open-air deck, where you can marvel at the stars and city lights, creating the perfect backdrop for capturing unforgettable memories and Instagram-worthy photos.

Whether it's a romantic date, a memorable gathering with friends or to see the dazzling sights of the Gold Coast, the Buffet Dinner Cruise offers a perfect blend of culinary delights, scenic beauty, and a touch of luxury, ensuring an evening you'll cherish for years to come.

We had a wonderful night with Sea World Cruises. The food was delicious. Prawns, mussels, salads, bread rolls, roast lamb, chicken tenders, barramundi and calamari plus roast veggies. The service was amazing. After dinner, we went up to the top deck and enjoyed the sights of nighttime Surfers Paradise. The lit-up buildings and houses looked great from the water. There was a singer onboard entertaining us with her beautiful voice.

The whole booking experience was easy and efficient. All the information was included.

Our party had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The food (the prawns were exceptional) was delicious and plentiful. The sites were beautiful and the service was friendly. We enjoyed the singer upstairs with her beautiful voice and very diverse selection of songs. My husband would have liked a choice of light beer. Thank you.

Great night for a dinner cruise comfortable boat with a good crew.

Great cruise, great food, and good service. Only two things that let it down one was no gluten-free options for dessert, except fruit, of which the choices weren't liked by one of our party. The other disappointing thing was when we checked the menu and drinks options, one of the group chose a cocktail that said it was served in a pineapple so ordered it only for it to be served in a glass and we weren't told this before it was ordered or when brought to the table.

Great experience. Very excited to go again and try out the cruises they offer

SeaWorld cruises did a great job creating a very memorable experience. The food was amazing, the views were spectacular, and the live music was great. This was a birthday gift but I’m so excited to buy this for myself again and try the lunch cruise out too!

Absolutely AWESOME, boat/ship 🤷‍♂️ Crew, food, experience 10/10.. Hostess Zoe ❤️

My wife and I have been to the Gold Coast and got married here and for many years returned but not done this wonderful evening cruise. Was our Wedding Anniversary and OMG was just fabulous. DON'T come to the Gold Coast and NOT do it. Was the highlight of our return after a 9 year gap.

Went on a Dinner cruise for our 15th wedding anniversary.

Wonderful service. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was divine. Onboard entertainment was fantastic. She is a very talented singer. The captain was great to have a chat with. Perfect night with perfect weather. Would most certainly do it again for sure.

Relaxing, fun and well organised. Highly recommend this cruise.

Loved every minute. Lovely staff and well organised evening. There were only 65 people onboard so it didn’t feel cramped. The food was beautiful and plenty of it. When we had finished dinner we headed up stairs to the open deck with our drinks and enjoyed the live music as we sailed down the canals of the Gold Coast. Highly recommend it, would do it again.

Fantastic night on the boat for our family members 50th. Staff & crew were polite, professional and friendly. Night was perfect and the singer on board for entertainment she was fantastic! Food was so good! Worth the money- go on book it :)

Rocky start with a storm that swept through but the crew were awesome. We waited it out and then we got the thumbs up that we could go on board. It was an awesome set up and we had the best food, crew were accommodating and kept our birthday cake in the fridge till desert time where they sang happy birthday and announced other celebrations. We still got to go up on the deck and it was just as nice atmosphere. You could hear the girl singing from upstairs and my gosh she topped the night off with her singing. We had heaps of food and bar stayed open from entry waiting for the boat till we were almost back at the dock. Friendly staff and everyone on the boat was nice too. Worth the money would do this one again!

Everything was just perfect, even though it rained we still enjoyed our time. COVID procedures were good as can be also. Music was just awesome Maddy, she has such a great voice and the songs she sung were awesome. Great experience, great night, and so glad we did it!
