The lunch cruise would be better though as they served lunch buffet (slightly pricier, but likely still worth it). It was already full when we made our booking.
The cruise was fairly simple. We went round a lake looking at the houses around it all decked very prettily. If I lived there, I’d think it’s a competition to have the prettiest house around. Some people waved at us from the houses as we passed.
The muffin was delicious! It was big and had a fair amount of sweet cream on top. Not too much that it’ll be too sweet, but just nice. There wasn’t much to do except sightseeing really. So if you’re not the sightseeing kinda person, just skip it. The bunch of us decided to do silly actions and record videos for a bit to kill time.
The lobster was good! Not a huge portion, but just nice. The sashimi was really fresh! I like how you can really taste the flavour in it. And the texture is so smooth! Really feel like parts of it melts in your mouth! Even Elaine (non-sashimi lover) said she might just like it!
Caught Pokemons on the way to Sea World. We realized they have a lot of rare/evolved pokemons. We caught Dewgong, Onyx, Persian and Vaporean in Gold Coast. A lot of Voltorbs around Sea World’s parking area too!
They had a jet-ski show and a dolphin show (which was really nice! Super cool!). I felt like being a dolphin trainer right then!
Elaine and I bought snow cones right before the dolphin show. It was just ice and some syrup, but it’s super yums! Elaine fell in love with it and couldn’t stop going about hunting for snow cones (for the few other days we were in GC). She now wants her very own snow cone machine.
We continued about Sea World. The other highlights there were that you get to touch stingrays, sea cucumbers and starfish. We also met this cheeky little seal that swam back and forth looking at us with its dew-drop eyes. We also saw some shark eggs! If you’re interested, they also have this diving experience for visitors. You pay a certain amount and you get to dive down with the sharks and other fish. Friends and family can head underground to have a look at you in the aquarium.
There are rides available at Sea World too!! It was really fun! My favourite is the Storm Coaster that makes you go through man-made mist. It’s cooling and has a nice ‘whooshhh!’ to the average rollercoaster ride. It started to drizzle towards the end of our visit, we danced in the rain and headed off.
We dined at Pancakes on the Rocks back in Surfers! We noticed it on the day we went for Hurricane’s. We went to Coles right after where we bought our AUD9 watermelon for a challenge (We ended up not having time to do the challenge and left it as a ‘peace offering to our airbnb hostess) and headed home to call it a day.
