Over eight years ago Island Gondola was imagined by Melanie Pryde as her and husband Quinn Pryde were driving over the Bribie Island
Melanie said: “I’ve got the perfect idea, picture this… a Gondola on Bribie!”
To which Quinn responded:
“I think you are on to something there!”
Now, fast forward to today and the dream of Island Gondola has became a reality.
“It took years just to find the boat and months to restore it. We had it brought down from Cairns where it had been very badly neglected.”
Once the Island Gondola Team got this unique vessel to the condition they were happy with, Island Gondola was launched in 2014.
Since then Quinn and Melanie have been working 24/7 on building the business up from scratch. It has been hard work but they have loved every moment of it.
They have met so many lovely couples and groups who have enjoyed a luxury Gondola cruise along the Pumicestone passage and through the canals
Quinn and Melanie both say that it is a very rewarding job to help create that extra special something for their guests.
Island Gondola has had the pleasure of helping to create many once in a lifetime memories for thousands of customers.
Some of these include proposals, weddings, anniversary’s, birthdays, Christmas light tours along with breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert cruises.
Experience a peaceful Gondola Cruise where your special time will be exclusively yours and indulge in luxury with Island Gondola, but book early as places fill quickly.
The team at Island Gondola are happy to provide dinning options for their guests, or you are more than welcome to BYO your own food or drinks.
The Gondola Cruises are a completely private dinning experience which can seat up to 6 people in a very comfortable and luxurious setting.
Guests can enjoy watching the beautiful views and pristine waters of the pumicestone passage as well as the panoramic views of the glasshouse mountains, while also seeing some amazing marine life.
