This is a great day’s fishing for families as ‘Beachcomber’ is a comfortable boat with shade and we even have a marine toilet on board! Charter includes bottled water, soft-drinks and snacks. Catering can be pre ordered for Private Charters when booking.

When conditions are right, ‘Beachcomber’ is also available for offshore fishing charters. Ideally taking a maximum of 6 guests.  On these days we’ll target in season reef species such as Mahi Mahi, Snapper and even Spanner Crabs!

We can head offshore on calm days to visit the whales before returning to lunch near Wavebreak Island as part of our ‘Day Out on the Water’ (for up to 12 guests).

Broadwater Cruising
Surfers Paradise to Wavebreak Island!

3 Hour Tour Departing from the beach at Lionel Perry Park Surfers Paradise.

This tour takes guests past the stunning houses along the Nerang River out into the Gold Coast Broadwater, past Southport Yacht Club, Marina Mirage and SeaWorld.  Along the way we will keep a lookout for resident sea life of pods of dolphins, green sea turtles and even the occasional dugong.

As we travel along the Broadwater we will briefly stop to witness the ritual of the famous Pelican feeding where close to a hundred pelicans swoop in to gather for their lunch feast! 

The next stop on our tour is across to Wavebreak Island where our guests can be Island castaways for an hour and a half! Our front loading ladder provides the perfect access to go get the Island sand beneath your feet.

We have picnic blankets and baskets for our guests to go to shore if they wish with their Cheese & Fruit platter and a glass of Prosecco! 

Guests are also most welcome to stay and relax aboard Beachcomber while we anchor at Wavebreak. We can tie our Aqua Lily Mat up beside Beachcomber so guests can have a float.

We’ll also have a couple of fishing rods available as well, if you’d like to ‘wet a line’ while on board.

Then, after your Island escape, it will be all back on board for a leisurely 45 minute slow cruise back to Surfers Paradise.

Pelicans, Prawns & Prosecco!

Cruise with Beachcomber Charters from your chosen departure point to Wavebreak Island or South Stradbroke Island – depending on your Tour or Charter! We have a variety of catering options for you to choose from. Including Seafood Feasts, Cheese and Fruit Platters for you and your friends or a bucket of Wild Caught Prawns with crusty bread and our special seafood sauce!  Nothing better than having a day with family and friends and a feast of good food as well!  Select ‘Extras’ when booking to choose your additional food options!

If time is at a premium we suggest our 3 hour option – departing from Surfers Paradise.


Private & Shared Broadwater Fishing Charters

‘Beachcomber’ is available for private and shared fishing charters both in the calm waters of Gold Coast’s Broadwater as well as days when the conditions allow us to head out the Gold Coast Seaway and explore offshore.  We have fishing gear for both calm water fishing and days when guests want to chase something bigger offshore! Maximum of 8 guests on our fishing charters.  Great for team building, parties and fun days with family and friends.

We offer the chance of Calm Water Fishing aboard Beachcomber for guests who want to come aboard for 5 hours of fishing on the Gold Coast’s Broadwater from 7am-12pm departing from the beach adjacent Howard Street Boat Ramp, Runaway Bay. We’ll provide fishing rods, lures, bait and advice on fishing techniques to help with your fishing! Our Skipper Andreas (who is also a Chef) will also give you pointers as to how best to cook your catch of the day!
