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.

When in Maloolaba, dont miss the river/canal cruise with lunch. You will not regret it. The seafood lunch was plain but for the price, no complaints because the cruise was great.

Whenever friends and family visit the coast, I always take them on the canal cruise. The skipper's commentary is interesting and the kids have a blast steering the boat and feeding the fish. We've done the cruise and tavern lunch deal (yum!) plus have also taken our own picnic lunch onboard other times. There's a toilet and drinks for sale... More

Great little boat trip, captain was very informative about the area, history and the amazing waterside houses. Lasted over an hour and worth the $20. Nice way to see how the other half live :-)

We absolutely loved our canal cruise the food was fresh and the drinks were cold. The staff were very friendly and so informative. Our cruise was definitely worth doing and value for money. We are happily recommending the Canal Cruise to others...once again thank you very much.

What a great little cruise. Captain was really great and let the kids be skippers which was a highlight for them. Didn't feed any pelicans which was disappointing, apparently its best to go for the morning as by the end of the day they are all full and gone.
