Thanks so much for taking the time to give us a great review Christian. It was great to have you back on board for another one of our activities. The Christmas Light Cruises are a lovely way to spend an evening and the houses certainly put on a great show this year. We actually won the best boat award too. :) Hope we see you again some other time. Jerry & Paddy

Booked this cruise to celebrate 50th Birthday with family & friends. The cruise was great. We cruised around the canals, being in December we also got to see the Christmas Lights. The staff onboard were very friendly and willing to help out anyway they could to make the night memorable. Would highly recommend Sunshine Coast Afloat to anyone looking to put on a private function. Definitely recommend 3 hours, it goes so fast.
