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 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. (Restricted during COVID 19). 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). Group/Bus Tour Bookings and Private Hire for Functions available on application. Fully BYO. Toilet on board.

Totally recommend the canal cruise! Whilst we didn’t have the best weather, our hosts were wonderful and the kids fed the pelicans and steered the boat 🙂 A great afternoon.

Our family including twenty something children really enjoyed this canal cruise. The timber boat is charming and gives a wonderful experience of the canals. The captain has a commentary that is a mix of the homes of the rich and famous, history of the area and a wildlife tour. Thoroughly recommend the tour.

Skipper Rob and the delightful Holly were the perfect hosts to us and our visiting friends from Victoria. Whether you are a local or visitor to our beautiful region, we highly recommend that you take an hour to sit back and enjoy a leisurely cruise through our waterways, listening to Rob’s informative commentary (and sense of humour!). Rob’s passion and pride in the historic M.V. Mudjimba and the Mooloolaba area is evident. We will look forward to bringing our grandchildren onboard to enjoy the Christmas Lights tour! We’ll certainly be back… thank you.

Great one hour trip on the Mooloolaba canal. Reasonable price and the captain was obviously a local that really knew the history of the area! Totally recommend this cruise!
