MV Entertainer

The MV Entertainer has been carefully restored and is set to sail again as a Day Cruise to Couran Cove Island Resort and on Sunset Cruises on our famous Gold Coast waterways.

MV Entertainer, a 27 metre wooden cruiser built in 1985, was first launched as a spectator vessel in Fremantle for the 1987 America’s Cup.

We’re now offering Island Day Cruises from Mariner’s Cove, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, plus Sunset Cruises every Thursday and Friday evenings for tourists and locals.

The ship will also be available on sunset and luncheon cruises for island guests, and of course it’s on offer for private charters, conferences and weddings as well


A Seaplane flight over the Gold Coast is an amazing experience. It will be the highlight of your holiday. The pristine beaches, the rainforest on the islands, the city skyscapers in the distance and the hundreds of other islands and waterways all combine into one stunning vista that is hard to describe.
