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.

This is the best $20 that you will ever spend. Captain was brilliant, cruise was very interesting passing Steve Irwin and Grant Kenny's waterfront mansions. Small children are able to skipper the boat. Pelican feeding was fun.

Took the cruise for $20 and the $10 lunch option at the Tavern. The cruise was very relaxing, our Captain was very informative on this fabulous look around the canals. The lunch at the tavern was good value considering it was only $10. Recommended
