Cruise along the calm waterways of the Gold Coast Broadwater on a 2-hour standup paddleboarding tour for all levels in the Gold Coast. Catch up on a short lesson and head out from Surfers Paradise to Macintosh Island, encountering marine and bird life along the way. Meet your friendly instructor and guide outside Bumbles Cafe and get ready for a day out on the water with changing rooms and other facilities nearby. Set out onto the water at Budds Beach and remember the techniques of standup paddleboarding on a short catch-up lesson. If you're a beginner, use this time to get to grip with the basics. Have the chance to practise your newly learnt or remembered techniques as you start your tour through the beautiful waterways and mangrove areas of the Gold Coast. If you're lucky you might see dolphins playing, turtles cruising in the sun, or even cuttlefish.
