      Thanks for the ride Reggie!
      Great activity for a family. The staff were really friendly and the concept of a bus that goes in the water was lots of fun.

      Fun thing to do
      Took our granddaughter for a tour on Aquaduck. Does a short intro while driving around the main eating and shopping streets of Mooloolaba and then into the water. Good fun and our 9 year old loved the experience. Good commentary on the tour. Felt safe and secure on the water. Lovely to see the houses and learn some local history. Good fun.

      We did the Aqua duck after seeing it drive down the Esplanade. A great little tour with friendly knowledgeable staff. Would recommend to both young and old. We did this with our 7 month old and had a great time.

      Fun way to see Airlie Beach
      What a lovely way to explore Airlie Beach both on land and in the water. Super cool driving into the water! The crew are wonderful and provide commentary along the way, pointing out various sites along the way. They even let the little ones have a drive which is a highlight for them. The Aquaduck is a lovely way to spend an hour.

      We were last minute passengers on the Aquaduck and we loved it! The captain was friendly and the hostess was very relaxed and gave us heaps of information about the area, history, buildings, boats, birds and sea creatures. Just wish it could have been longer!

      Family friendly activity
      The Aquaduck review by a 10 yr old. 'The duck was amazing because I got to drive the duck in the water and all the kids got a turn'. From the adult perspective: The tour guide was very informative and took us around the coastline explaining the surroundings and local landmarks. We drove through town where we heard about the impacts on the cyclones and the township of Airlie Beach. The Aquaduck was a lovely family friendly activity which provides some interesting information and fun for the kids. The tour

    Our family had a wonderful time on board "Reggie" the aquaduck. The kids loved every minute... especially when they became captains! The crew Lindsay and Tom were warm, friendly and entertaining. We would highly recommend jumping on board and seeing the beautiful Sunshine Coast in this unique and fun way.

    We weren’t taken with any of the shore excursion offerings by our cruise ship, so we read the nice reviews of Aquaduck and booked out tour independently. We were very happy with our choice. The Aquaduck afforded us the opportunity to see Mooloolaba’s parks, beaches, fishing fleets, and multimillion dollar homes by both land and water. The guide was excellent and informative.

    I can't rate the experience as we didn't go on it. Both days were cancelled. The grandchildren were very upset. The first day we booked and paid our money and we got notified that the tour was cancelled. They explained it was for safety reason and that is fair enough. They invited us all to go the next day. We got confirmation at approx. 11 am and we were to be at pier area at 11.45 am that day. My family including 3 children arrived and waited for 45 minutes. A young girl working at the aquarium told us she hadn't seen anyone from the Aquaduck that day and maybe they weren't operating. My wife rang to be told they weren't operating due to safety reasons. We queried why we got a confirmation of the booking only an hour and half ago. The operator informed us that we had been sent an email, however this was incorrent as we had not received any notification. They offered us another tour when the Aquaduck was operating but we were returning to Melbourne and unable to take up their offer. They told us they would refund the money within 3 working day, which we appreciate. I appreciate breakdowns but communication is very important. Especially with little children who were crying and very upset.

    Hi Paul B, We are so sorry we weren't able to provide your tour either day. We had a major maintenance issue and have been unable to run tours since. Break downs are out of our control, but we prioritised all customers with a booking for alternate dates or offering immediate refunds as soon as we were aware. Sorry you were disappointed with our communication and for disrupting your schedule.

    I've wanted to do this for years and finally got to do it with my kiddo just last week.
    We took the last session of the day on either Thursday or Friday (I forgot already which day) and it's not full at all at that time. Loads of room to be able to move about once Reggie the Aquaduck is in the water. It's so much fun! Staff were amazing. They were helpful and shared loads of information about the area.

    We really enjoyed the experience on "Reggie" with Captain Tom and Supervisor Ell.
    A drive down the esplanade with commentary about various bits and pieces, history and quirky facts was good. The quirky jokes were a bit of fun too.
    How Captain Tom navigates the LARC through town is amazing!
    Travelling through the canals and talking about the rich and famous and their mansions was interesting and definitely an experience!
    The hour long round trip went very quickly.

    Even though I made a mistake with my booking date, Shannon was able to accommodate us and we had a great time on the Aquaduck. My daughter got to drive the boat. The only negative was the commentary from Reggie the duck – was slightly corny and hard to hear over the vehicle's engine.

    We took the granddaughters on Sept.27 at 11-15 tour and thoroughly enjoyed it.
    We are not new to Mooloolaba and have watched the Aquaduck go by many times but on this stay we thought we would give it a go.
    The Captain and the guide were informative and included a thing or two I wasn't expecting.
    The girls loved steering the boat.
    Great fun experience .

    On a busy day, arrive early to make sure you can park, as it seems that the same car park is shared by practically the whole town.

    I was right at the back, and had plenty of room which was nice but for some reason could not hear the male operator when he spoke, when the lady was talking she was very clear, as was the somewhat annoying "duck" when he "spoke".

    A nice little trip to do if your'e there with a bit of time.

    Thanks for providing this valuable feedback, and for sharing the good advise about arriving early during during the busy seasons. The sound system is subject to quite a few factors, including the ambient outside noise (traffic, weather, window covers open or closed), the duck engine, and the individual guide/skippers voice. All of these issues we are in the process of rectifying. It is good to see, however, that you enjoyed the trip.
