We are a small, family run business that takes immense pride in giving passengers on our still-water canal cruise an unforgettable, family-friendly and affordable experience. Our cruise is considered a “must do” item for anyone visiting the Sunshine Coast.

Famous 1H Cruise

This Mooloolaba Harbour River Canal Cruise takes you through 3 different areas  aboard the M.V. Mudjimba, the only genuine historic timber ferry in operation on the Sunshine Coast today.

Private Charters

Our private charters run for 2 hours and depart from The Wharf, Mooloolaba between 4.30pm and 6.30 pm. Alternatively, if you have access to a private pontoon or jetty, we can pick up your party and drop them back right to your doorstep.

Group Bookings

The M.V. Mudjimba can accommodate up to 40 passengers on a one hour group booking, and is extremely popular with many bus and tour operators such as Rotary, Probus, RSL, Veteran’s and Social clubs.

Today we absolutely enjoyed a great cruise from the Mooloolaba wharf on a unique boat that was originally used around the Brisbane river years ago. This family owned/operated business is perfect for visitors and also for locals that are interested in hearing a colloquial history whilst cruising the lovely waters!

We have had a fantastic time on the cruise, and learnt so much about the history of this area. Great fun, intimate, relaxing as well as entertaining. Kids got to drive the boat as well as feed pelicans, they come so close! Must do activity on the Sunny Coast.

Ahoy Skipper, I would like to thank you for going out of your way to help us out when our plans changed on Friday November 15th. Holly and yourself were perfect hosts, we enjoyed your cruise very much and it certainly made our day. Don't loose that giving heart that you so unconditionally extended to us. Take care and thank you again from myself all the residents.


Such a lovely afternoon, great history of the area and fun feeding pelicans! Such great value for the family I highly recommend, thank you.

Our group had such a great time on the cruise. It was affordable and a lot of fun. The commentary was excellent - entertaining and true, with a lot of local knowledge. We highly recommend this cruise.
