We spent a weekend at Mooloolaba for my daughter's birthday & the canal cruise was an hour well spent with my family. The skipper was friendly, professional, courteous and definitely a historian of the locality. We will definitely be doing it again. This is one of the MUST do things at Mooloolaba. The skipper allowed my kids to feed the fish for an extended period after all the passengers have disembarked. Thank you Skipper!

Really good cruise. The boat has history. Informative history on the canal . Good skipper and crew. You get to feed the Pelicans. Chance to see the birds up close. There is also fish feeding after the cruise. Highly recommended boat ride up into the canals.

If you are coming to Mooloolaba on a holiday, or even if you live here and want to get to see all the waterways this beautiful region has to offer, this is the company to go with. What makes this experience so enjoyable is the nostalgia of being aboard the historic timber ferry, the M.V. Mudjimba, and the owner/operators informative knowledge of the Mooloolaba canals. They are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet, who provide an amazing service making this a very memorable excursion..highly recommend this.
