Pacific Wind Cruises

About us

Allowing everyone the option to enjoy being out on the bay for the day!

Australia’s first wheelchair designed charter cruise. We are based on the Gold Coast, at Hope Island Marina, 10 Santa Barbara Road where parking is no issue at the Boardwalk shopping centre.

We do either four hour or day charter cruises either fishing or leisure cruises. We have two decks and BYO food and drinks, you can make the day whatever you like. It’s a great day on the water for a group of up to 14 individuals experiencing the Gold Coast.

Michael Brown is the brainchild of this venture who purchased the boat in 2006 from Seaworld Nara Resort and immediately fitted it out for wheelchair access. Michael Brown is a quadriplegic and wheelchair bound following an accident in 1995. With limited funds Michael Brown achieved his goal of operating a charter boat business with the official launch in October 2017. Channel 9 News came down to do a story and experience the wonderful cruise for themselves.

Types of Cruises

Pacific Wind is a therapeutic haven for those with disabilities and wheelchair accessibility issues. When a person has experienced extreme trauma in their lives, the therapeutic experience of being out on the water boosts their overall well-being which can be life changing. By also providing a vessel that assists those with mental and emotional health including physical well being, Pacific Wind is a holistic approach to one’s recovery in a truly unorthodox fashion.
Specifically equipped on both levels with wheelchair access, Pacific Wind provides opportunity for those with disabilities to enjoy fishing charters where they may never have been able to experience this previously due to accessibility reasons.
