Our mates in the Gold Coast have been lucky enough to experience the pure joy of getting out on a GoBoat and, finally, now it’s Brisbane’s turn. On Thursday April 22, the fleet of electric picnic hire boats will drop anchor at a pop-up location at Dockside Marina at Kangaroo Point. From here, eager sailors will be able to pilot one of six Danish-designed eight-seater boats on the Brisbane river. The best part? You don’t even need a boat license. Safety is key though, and skippers and their crew will receive a thorough safety briefing and demonstration prior to jumping on board.
Sticking around for a limited time only, the pop-up comes as a little pre-show teaser for what will be GoBoat’s official launch at Breakfast Creek in the coming months – so, take this as your chance to practise your cruising skills! Water babies can book sessions from one to five hours in length, starting at $109 for one hour, with the price-per-hour decreasing the longer the booking. If you’ve got a furry friend tagging along, not to worry, as GoBoat is pet-friendly too. To make a booking (there’s limited spots available), pop over to the GoBoat website.
