Spectacular Gold Coast View

Blue Sky Boats Gold Coast Broadwater

Blue Sky Boats Gold Coast Broadwater Blue Sky Boats Gold Coast Broadwater all add up to a breathtaking view of Surfers Paradise which is located 800 kilometers north of Sydney & 80 kilometers south of Brisbane.

We are looking east to Marina Mirage on the right & the Vercace Hotel o the left.

Hundreds of boats use the seaway every day.

Some guys prefer to fish.

Blue Sky Boats Gold Coast Broadwater Boats, who needs boats? We are here to catch a big one.

 So no matter what you are interested in you will find it n the Broadwater.

Did I mention the seafood?

Blue Sky Boats Gold Coast Broadwater You have two great choices, pull into Charis seafood at Labrador & pick up your lunch. Those of you with a sharp eye will notice the mud crabs are $36.90 a kilo, well tat was 2010, sadly in 2017 they have doubled in price.

Direct from the trawler.

Blue Sky Boats Gold Coast Broadwater This is my preference, they are located just north of Marina Mirage, just call Curly on 0417 668 591, he’s one of the boat owners, he will let you know what they have in stock.

Best prawns in the world.

Blue Sky Boats Gold Coast Broadwater These medium size king prawns are around $25 aud a kilo.

Decisions, decisions.
