WHAT’S AQUA DONUT

You’d say, “A blue-coloured donut or, maybe a toy!”

We’d say, “Nope!”

“Aqua Donut” is a boat, a circular one, similar to the deep-fried ring-shaped luscious dessert we all love to bite into. But you can bite while on it! Confusing?

“Aqua Donut” is a floating device with a barbeque station to enable a unique dining experience as one sways along the picturesque area of Docklands. Back in countries like Dubai, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Switzerland, UK, US and Canada such floating vessels, popular as barbeque boats, are a major tourist attraction. At last, Melbournians can indulge in a similar experience a lot closer to home.

But how can a donut float?

Well, ‘coz “Aqua Donut” isn’t spongy and fluffy like its edible counterpart. This one’s made of high-end fibre glass so it can seamlessly glide over water. It is electrically powered (nope, the noise won’t intrude with the banter and chatter of guests aboard) and has a charcoal BBQ facility in the centre to tantalise your taste buds.

What’s so exciting about Aqua Donut?

You can rent “Aqua Donut” to celebrate a special occasion or organise a touristy event for out-of-towners. You can simply laze around on a beautiful morning or gorge juicy kebabs as the sun goes down

What it includes?

  • Upto 10 people on the Aqua Donut. If you have bought a “Family of 5” Aqua Donut then only 5 people will be allowed.
