Charter Boats Gold Coast

Why luxury boat hire on a charter boats when you can self-drive on a club boat at the Gold Coast?

These days, though the Gold Coast certainly still has its share of ostentatious extravagance, for sailors and boat  share club members, the main attraction is the extensive waterways. A billion dollar marine industry has grown around the region’s natural features, with state of the art refit and repair facilities along with some pretty swanky marinas on offer. Why luxury boat hire on a charter boat when you can self-drive on a club boat? Boat  share club on the Gold Coast rank among the highest per capita in the country, numbers that reflect the plethora of boating opportunities. But it’s not just the locals out on the water; it’s a pretty handy port for boats cruising up and down the east coast.

So, what’s the big attraction then? It mostly comes down to the stretch of inland water, including a myriad of rivers and creeks known collectively as The Broadwater. While much of the waterway is accessible to shallow draft yachts, a sturdy dinghy and some spare fuel is required to explore some of the real treasures of the area. Not a region with big tides, nevertheless drying sandbars and mudflats are a significant hazard for yachts, as water depths throughout tend towards shallow.

Getting around the Broadwater

Lying at the southern extreme of Moreton Bay and protected from the Pacific Ocean by South and North Stradbroke Islands, the southern access point is via the Gold Coast Seaway south of South Stradbroke Island. Further south of the Seaway a narrow strip of land called the Spit protects the inshore waters and is the most popular area for yachts, as well being the location of both the Southport Yacht Club and Seaworld.

Wave Break Island

Wave Break Island acts as, well, a wave break, inside the Seaway entrance, and there’s a popular deepwater (relatively speaking) anchorage to the north of the island. Like much of the Gold Coast, during long weekends and summer holidays, it can get pretty crowded and rowdy in this compact pool surrounded by drying sandbars.

Marine Stadium

Marine Stadium is a cosy little anchorage popular with cruising yachts in transit

Nearby, Marine Stadium is a cosy little anchorage popular with transient cruising yachts, almost landlocked bar the south facing entrance.  Coastal sheoaks on the shore and the roar of the Pacific Ocean crashing into the beach beyond the Spit make this a good base from which to explore the shore based attractions of the Gold Coast.

Wedged between Seaworld and the swanky Palazzo Versace Hotel and recently upgraded Marina Mirage development, fishing trawlers sell their catch direct to the public on most days, depending on the season.

North of the Gold Coast Seaway

North of the Seaway the navigation gets a little trickier and the seascape gets a little more interesting as the beachfront high-rise apartments are left behind. Beyond man-made Sovereign Islands, an exclusive residential precinct connected to Paradise Point by a short bridge, the Coomera River branches westward. Snaking through the suburbs the river is navigable via a marked channel for many miles, though bridges impede yachts beyond Gold Coast City Marina. Splitting into north and south branches north of Sanctuary Cove Marina, the north branch offers the opportunity to launch the dinghy and explore the mangroves of Coomera Island National Park. It’s also the southern boundary of the Moreton Bay Marine Park.

So Join the Pleasure Cruising Club and enjoy share charter boats in Gold Coast  without the cost of owning a boat and without the need to do a luxury boat hire on a charter boat!
