Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The most popular boat cruise on the Sunshine Coast. The Historic Timber ferry MV Mudjimba has been operating at its current location for 26 years. During this relaxing still-water cruise, you see Million dollar Mansions and Yachts, see wild pelicans being hand fed from the side of the boat and get to feed wild fish at the end of the cruise. A live and informative commentary is provided as you cruise. We now have a lunch option available before or after your cruise. The kids get a chance to steer the boat as well.

“Excellent value cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014 via mobile

Did this cruise today with my son. The booking team were welcoming and helpful and the guide very knowledgable and friendly. A great way to see Mooloolaba. We saw dolphins, my son got to drive the boat and feed the fish. Excellent value and just the right duration for kids. Highly recommended!

“Excellent small cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 December 2013

We did the morning cruise, quite full. Very good commentary. We had engine problems half way thru our cruise, but as the owner lived on the canals we dropped in to his place and he came aboard and helped us back on track. It was great, couldn't have been better. Feeding the pelicans was not much, maybe they had to much to eat that day by the time we got there, only 2 pelicans, expected more, but that's nature. All in all well worth the money, and well recommended.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

On a quiet day we were the only 2 signed up for the 1pm cruise. The skipper nevertheless was quite happy to take us out, providing us the full cruise experience with enthusiastic running commentary. The boat is a lovely wooden unit which gives a very pleasant experience on the water with easy access to 360 degree views from wherever you sit. There are plenty of impressive homes and boats to view, but the highlight was probably the feeding of the pelicans! By the time you have been through the canals and out to the verge of the open ocean, an hour has flown by. We would like to thank the company for a lovely cruise for the 2 of us, despite the fact they were probably barely taking in enough money to cover the cost of the fuel.

“Rest your legs and enjoy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

This was a great way to have a little rest while cruising along the river. The commentary was really interesting and we were happy to just sit and relax for a bit. It was also great value for money.
