Overview
More
This highly popular cruise aboard the historic timber ferry MV Mudjimba has been operating on the Sunshine Coast from the Mooloolaba Wharf for 26 years. During this relaxing, still-water 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. 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. We run three cruises daily. Purchase a cruise-only ticket or add a lunch voucher to eat at the Wharf Tavern before or after your cruise. Sunset cruises are available subject to demand. Group bookings and gift vouchers available on application.
