"Excellent experience, great customer service and perfect for Australia."
- D Gallagher
"As a group we booked this Aqua Donut experience, 8 of us. We had the Aqua Donut for approx 2h's and the price was fair for that time period. The chap that we had was friendly helpful and patient with us. Overall the experience was great. We put the sun shade up and cruised around in the area. 2 hours was perfect and it was good to see the Docklands from the water."

How far can I go with the “Aqua Donut”?

You will be driving to the designated yellow markers in the middle of the water and hooking the Aqua Donut there and enjoy the picturesque surroundings of Docklands while chilling and grilling. You CAN NOT drive them around for the duration of the hire as they only have small batteries which can handle only 30 minutes of drive time which is enough to take you to marker, come back for a toilet break if required and then go back to marker. PLEASE NOTE - YOU WILL BE CHARGED A $200 FEE TO TOW YOU BACK IF YOU KEEP DRIVING AND BATTERY RUNS OUT. THE FEE WON'T BE CHARGED IF BATTERY RUNS OUT WHILE LEAVING THE DOCK OR WHILE COMING BACK TO DOCK.

No. We operate on very strict time slots and you will have to pay extra if you are not back on time. Late fee of $50.00 per fifteen minutes will be charged.

What happens if I return early?

Unfortunately we can’t refund hire fee if you decide to come back early

What happens if I make a booking and the weather is bad?

We offer a bad weather guarantee for our customers who have pre-booked “Aqua Donut”. When the day of hire arrives, if poor weather prevents safe sailing, then you can simply reschedule dates and time over a six month period without any additional administration charges. If you choose not to reschedule and get a refund, we will deduct 50% of the hire fee.

Are life jackets provided on “Aqua Donut”?

Yes. Life jackets are provided and need to be worn at all times as well as all other equipment and are stored under the seats to comply with Marine Safety Victoria requirements.

Do I need to clean up?

Yes, you will need to make sure that Aqua Donut is returned back in a clean state. Please put all the rubbish in the rubbish bag provided and dispose off. You don’t need to clean the BBQ. If the Aqua Donut is not returned in a clean state, a cleaning fee of $100.00 will apply which will be deducted from the bond.

Can I do fishing?

No. “Aqua Donut” is designed to chill and grill. You are not allowed to carry any fishing equipment on board.

Can I drink alcohol?

Nominated driver can not consume alcohol but passengers are allowed to have moderate alcohol. Authorities will be notified if we find out that alcohol is being consumed by driver or if you are being abusive with our staff and you will forfeit your security deposit. The Water Police regularly patrol the area to ensure safe boating for everybody. Any drug use is strictly prohibited and offenders are automatically reported to the police.

Can I go swimming?

No. Swimming from “Aqua Donut” is strictly not allowed as it may lead to injury to the person or damage the floating device.

Are pets allowed?

As much as we love pets like you do, unfortunately due to safety and government regulations, pets are not allowed on board.

Who should I contact in case of emergency?

Depending on where the emergency situation occurs, it may not always be possible for a representative of “Aqua Donut” to be the first on the scene to offer assistance. In case of serious emergency it may be necessary to call the Emergency Services. Police, Fire and Ambulance can be contacted by dialling 000 or 112 from a mobile phone, even when there may not be full reception. If the vessel loses power and is at the mercy of the river current, the hirer’s first option is to call a representative of “Aqua Donut” to request assistance if required. Only after this option has failed to offer the necessary aid should one of the alternative emergency response organisations be called. For medical emergencies 000 should be called and arrangements made with the Police, Fire or Ambulance.

How do I pay?

You will be required to make full payment by credit card or paypal during the time of booking.

Can I pay cash on hire?

No. We do not have any facility to collect cash at the hire facility.

What if I don’t have a credit card?

You can ask one of your guests to provide credit card as there is no other way to complete a booking.

What happens if I make a booking and my plans change?

We understand that plans can change, therefore we provide our customers with the option to reschedule bookings to another date within a six month period. Refunds are not provided

What about security bond and insurance?

The hirer must leave a $500 bond per “Aqua Donut” for the duration of the hire. The bond covers the insurance premium excess on each “Aqua Donut” and any damage to it. The hirer is ultimately responsible for any damage to the “Aqua Donut” for the duration of the hire. The bond needs to be paid by a credit card at the time of taking charge of Aqua Donut. You will forfeit full security deposit if nominated driver consumes alcohol or if passengers are too drunk, being abusive with our staff or any damage to the boats.

When is my bond returned?

The bond will be returned to your credit card as soon as you bring back the “Aqua Donut” in a condition you took it away.

My gift card is expired can I reactivate it?

There is an administration charge of $100 to reactivate an expired gift card.

Are franchises available?

Yes, please contact Gary at support@aquadonut.com to discuss further.
