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.

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! The Wharf Tavern steak was absolutely fabulous! Highly recommended to book the tour with the food. We had a very good experience!
