About Mooloolaba Canal Cruise
This highly popular cruise aboard the historic timber ferry MV Mudjimba has been operating on the Sunshine Coast from the Mooloolaba Wharf for over 30 years. During this relaxing, still-water 1 hour cruise, you will see opulent waterfront mansions, yachts and historic landmarks, while listening to a live and informative commentary. Children get to take the helm alongside the Skipper for a great hands-on experience and photo opportunity. If they are about, you will see wild pelicans being hand fed from the side of the boat, then feed the fish at the end of the cruise. It is a great experience for all the family, and considered a "Must Do" on the Sunshine Coast. We run three cruises daily. (Days of operation change throughout the year so please check our website or call us to check availability). “Cruise & Dock” Lunch Combo Option. (see website for details).

I took my parents on this lovely cruise of the Mooloolah River. The staff on board were very friendly and the commentary was interesting and funny :) My parents were comfortable for the whole trip and enjoyed looking at the fancy houses and boats. The freshly renovated boat looked great too and it felt good to support a longstanding local business.

Our family took the afternoon canal cruise and really enjoyed our time on the classic ferry. Paul was our captain and he provided the right amount of humor and local knowledge to keep the trip interesting. We had wonderful weather and the slow motoring around the canals was both fun and relaxing. The wooden ferry was built in 1963 if I recall correctly and it is in amazing shape given its time on the water. The number of canals is surprising given you rarely see them from the road. And as you can imagine, the homes backing onto the canal run from simple to amazing. I would highly recommend the canal tour to anyone spending some time in the Mooloolaba area. It is enjoyable for ages 7 to 70.

Our group of four booked on line and looked forward to this cruise. We were not disappointed, we and other passengers were graciously greeted, welcomed on board, given the safety briefing and then we settled for a relaxing cruise on the river and the canals. The commentary was informative, the views of canals, houses and boats were amazing. No pelicans on this trip though, and the children enjoyed their ‘steering’ of the cruise boat. We enjoyed every moment. Well done.
