Looking for a fun island getaway from the Gold Coast? Step aboard the 23 meter luxury cruiser MV Entertainer for a South Straddie Island Day Trip! Departing from Mariners Cove, Main Beach, this is the perfect choice that gives you a day filled with outdoor activities at the Couran Cove Island Resort.

Located on South Stradbroke Island, Couran Cove Island Resort is a peaceful destination for nature enthusiasts, adventurers, couples, families - and everything in between!

The Day Trip Including Resort Activities includes a variety of free activities such as bike ride, water park and VR World. You can also add on paid activities such as jet ski, 4WD tours and scenic flights, meaning you'll never get bored - and it's perfect for the whole family!

Cruises depart Mariners Cove Marina at 9.30am on Wednesdays and Sundays (also Fridays during the busy months) and return at 5pm.

Please Note: The MV Entertainer Cruise operates seasonally, and is now replaced by the Couran Cove Ferry from Hope Harbour Marina until Late September. The Couran Cove Ferry takes approx 40 mins which leaves more time on the island. During this period, morning & afternoon teas and live entertainment are not included. Instead, you will receive a $10 "Cafe Couran" dining voucher and have an access to Couran Cove Island Resort facilities, including 2 hour free bike hire ($25 deposit required) and 30 minute virtual reality experience at VR World. Please see the "Tour Times" section for the Couran Cove Ferry departure details.
