“Relaxed canal cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Picked this for afternoon family trip and really enjoyed the relaxed nature of the cruise and the chance to see Mooloolaba from the water. There was an informative commentary from the Captain, focusing on the lavish river/canal side houses, and a little on the history and wildlife of the area. Highlights were the up close Pelican feeding and for my kids the chance to pilot the boat, the beautiful old wooden restored M.V. Mudjimba.

“Nice and laid back, informative and humorous commentary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Recently went on this cruise and had a great time!! The skipper was an ex-kiwi and had a great sense of humour/commentary. Was nice to see how the other half live and get some background on the history of the place. There was only a few on the boat but even if it was full, it would of been just as good. Couple of little treats for the kids/big kids - feeding peicans and local fish. A great way to spend an hour and well recommended.

“Canal cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Low key, informative skipper, not too long a trip(1 hr). Certainly an easy way to see how the other half live.

“Insight tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This tour goes round the back-doubles to show what you can't see from the road. Plenty of prime real estate on show, not much sign of a recession around these parts!
