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.

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

Chloe H.

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.

Rebecca E.

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!

Tobias O’B.

Great and fun one hour cruise. Very friendly staff. Great for kids and the parents. My daughter enjoyed pelican feeding, fish feeding and driving the cruise with the captain! We had a very good experience!

February is our quietest time of the year, so we choose this time, every year to give our beloved Mudjimba a well-earned pampering in the slip yard. She needs a facial scrub and her nails painting. We will be fully operational and “ship shape” from March. We apologise for any inconvenience.
