Sorry but NO The annoying repetitive voice of the captain made me want to jump over board no whales or dolphins just horrible. The youngest staff member was helpful and nice.

I gave 2 because of the staff they were great the rest was not. Very disappointing and only the select few at the front of the boat had the privilege of feeding a pelican.

Sunset cruise departed Mooloolaba at 5.30 .There was the usual rush onboard to gain the best seating, but we found most people tended to stand as the cruise travelled down the canals. This would normally be most suitable to couples to share some sunset drinks before heading out for dinner. But as we head toward xmas it would be great... More

This was well priced but was not that great, We cruised around canals with poor commentary then hit the open waters seeking ANY marine life but spotted nothing. I know this happens but surely they could make the experience more interesting. Coming back in we fed Pelicans but really the kids threw fish over the side - why not get... More

The crew did their best to find whales for us to watch, however it should be pointed out to everyone at the start of the trip that allowing shorter people space at the front is literally essential. As others on the boat obviously have no idea, thought process or manners to step aside (or behind) for just a short while... More

I booked for my family, in-laws and some friends so there was about 11 all up. We had the most amazing evening. Left right on time and the nibbles were out straight away. Perhaps a bit more variety would have been good especially for the kids. The cruise was just lovely, boat really well presented, staff were so friendly and... More

A lovely and fun way to spend a couple of hours. We were a big family group celebrating my sister's birthday. The weather was lousy unfortunately but we still thoroughly enjoyed the cruise from the kids through to middle aged and 70 year olds. This was mainly due to the live music. The singer was excellent. His play list varied... More

Lovely couple of hours cruising the Mooloolaba canals with on board entertainment. Friendly staff, and the night we went there was also a spectacular lightening show. My only criticism was the bar prices were a little high. Definitely one for couples or friends

What a lovely way to see the Mooloolaba area. Never a big fan of boating but the vessel is big enough felt incredibly comfortable. Food is average but realistically good value. Music on the hand could definitely be better.
