      Amazing river cruise
      The crew Shorty and Sandy were super welcoming and hospitable whilst having a laugh at the same time. The views around the river were amazing as well as Shortys commentary throughout. 10/10 would recommend.

      An absolute must in Mooloolaba!
      What a wonderful tour around the canals and Harbour! Shorty and his wife Sandy were simply fantastic - making everyone feel so welcomed. Not only was the food and drink top notch, Shorty's commentary about all the houses and boats really helped us feel right at home in Mooloolaba. This cruise is a must for any visitors and locals!!

      Sunset cruise
      Friendly staff, great cocktails and lovely weather, but should start 30 mins later to get the sunset in! It was a good size boat with not too many people so felt wet relaxing!

      Great Christmas lights experience w the best staff
      We went on the Christmas Lights tour & absolutely loved it. The staff were so friendly. Shorty drove the boat & his safety demo was engaging & funny but still got the important points across. Sandy was great too - always making sure our group was looked after & always smiling. The bar staff were good too - quick & great service. We loved the experience & def keen to do again next Christmas. The way the boat is setup with inside seating but can still see out is so good & back deck seating. The kids loved beiPng at front of boat too. The lightning show in the background was an added bonus … as Shorty pointed out in his demo & we agreed! We def recommend 👌🏼 Thank you Coastal Cruises Mooloolaba. See you next year.

      Amazing work Christmas party!
      We recently joined Shorty and Sandy for a wonderful Christmas lights cruise as a part of our annual work Christmas party and had the best time! They were incredibly welcoming and fun and our whole team came away saying it was one of our best work parties we've had to date. We definitely recommend this service and hope to hop on board again in the near future ~ Thanks very much from the Massey Online team!

    We booked this cruise through the NRMA , taking the cruise during a week of rain, as an opportunity to get out of our holiday unit. We selected this cruise as it had good rain protection but still provided great visibility outside.

    We boarded at 1.00pm with another dozen passengers and were warmly welcomed aboard by the captain and his one woman crew. Both were an absolute delight during the cruise, with our captain providing an interesting, informative and a times humorous commentary, while our crew member served drinks and snacks. Part way through the cruise, we stopped, collected and were served our seafood lunch, fresh cooked and delivered to the boat.

    There is lots to see along the river, and some very interesting stories told of the development of some of the first "keys" in an Australian waterway. We had scattered sunshine and a few downpours during the afternoon, but this did not detract from cruise, no doubt helped by the occasional glass of bubbly. I would rate this one 11 out of 10 and a must do on any visit to Mooloolaba.

    Booked vi Experience Oz as a Christmas present for my parents - they reported that the food was very ordinary - stale chips, no salad, all very average/marginal.

    The skipper was witty and friendly, but the cruise was just a voyeuristic exercise of looking into people’s homes. The boat was also old and decrepit.

    Just very disappointing all around.

    I Recently went on a Seafood Lunch Cruise aboard the “Rum Runner” with my parents.
    Could not speak more highly of the experience.
    From the moment we stepped onboard our Skipper Callin and Barman Andrew made us feel so welcome!
    The Rum Runner is set out so beautifully inside, very comfortable with a fantastic and well stocked bar area. There is plenty of space to move around both inside the boat and also out on the back deck and up on the raised bow area to enjoy the sun and take photos.
    The cruise around the canals was very smooth with an excellent and informative commentary about the local area throughout the trip.
    To top off the cruise, we were served a fantastic Seafood Lunch. The seafood was so fresh and cooked to perfection and the portion sizes were great, you definitely won’t leave your cruise hungry!
    I can recommend the calamari and crumbed prawns, simply superb!
    The menu was varied with plenty of choices, plus non seafood and vegetarian options, there was definitely something for everyone!
    We will definitely be back again and have locked this in as a must do each time we visit Mooloolaba in the future!
    Do yourself a favour and book a cruise with Coastal Cruises Mooloolaba, you won’t be disappointed!
    10/10 from start to finish!

    We had the best time on this river cruise, Aaron and Megs are the best, so friendly and informative. You must get Megs to take a photo of you at the river mouth... she could be a professional photographer

    If you are thinking of a river cruise this is the one you should go for... fantastic value for money and you won’t be disappointed.

    We did the Seafood lunch cruise for our anniversary today and the wonderful team at Coastal Cruises did not disappoint. Femke and Darren were excellent hosts, you were immediately made to feel comfortable and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Darren’s knowledge of the area was fascinating and also full of laughs. We ordered the upgrade of a seafood platter for 2 and it was so delicious and plenty of, I was amazed to learn that all the food is provided fresh from Mooloolaba fisheries.
    The boat is very clean and sanitised- something you have to point out during these crazy times.

    I highly recommended this to everyone, even the locals.

    Thanks so much Femke and Darren!

    From the ease of booking online through to the couple of leisurely hours spent onboard their comfortable cruise, the entire experience with Coastal Cruises Mooloolaba was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our time cruising the canals, dining on super fresh seafood and chatting with the friendly and knowledgable hosts. Perfect amount of time. Delicious food. Great value. Hosts were so lovely with our young daughter. Would definitely recommend.
