Local guide to Gold Coast watersports

When it comes to enjoying life out on the water, you know you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to Gold Coast.

We have some of the world’s longest canals and waterways, which provide calm, protected waters for sailing, paddling, fishing, surfing, swimming, scuba diving and snorkelling in.

Then there’s the 57km of pristine beaches and world-class surf breaks which capture the imagination of water lovers and attract visitors from all across Australia and around the world.

Playing in the waves and connecting with the ocean is without doubt one of the most popular pastimes here on the Gold Coast and there’s an endless variety of ways to get out there and enjoy it.

Residents of the Northern Gold Coast are especially lucky with the wonderful Southport Broadwater right at their doorstep.
