Hopo’s journey to 300,000 riders

Since its launch in December 2019, the popularity of the ferry has continued to grow, with up to 400 passengers per day travelling between the 5 must-do destinations.

Hopo is proudly an award-winning, accessible and sustainable way to travel the Gold Coast. This environmentally-friendly means of transportation consumes an equivalent amount of fuel as a regular car, while accommodating up to 60 passengers per vessel.

The service offered is one-of-a-kind on the Gold Coast, providing engaging onboard commentary, a bar, and the perfect blend of tourism, hospitality and transportation.

Anthony Ardern, Managing Director of Hopo Ferry, expressed his enthusiasm at the company’s recent achievements.

“It’s been an incredible few months for us. We were honored to receive the Silver Award for Excellence in Accessible Tourism at the 2023 Queensland Tourism Awards, and we’ve had a very busy summer period. Reaching the milestone of 300,000 riders is a significant moment, as it demonstrates the potential of eco-friendly water transport to reduce traffic congestion, while offering a fun and unique Gold Coast experience.” says Ardern.

Hopo offers affordable fares for both locals and visitors who want to discover the Gold Coast from a unique perspective.

The Gold Coast boasts more canals and waterways than Amsterdam and Venice combined! Simply relax as you cruise aboard Hopo or re-discover our beautiful backyard with easy access to waterside parklands, galleries, and entertainment hubs, Hopo provides unlimited ways to spend a day on the beautiful Gold Coast waterways.

You can also visit the friendly team at the Hopo Kiosk, Surfers Paradise, or at Sea World Cruises Terminal, Main Beach. Or, simply jump on board and see where the day takes you.
