Our Famous 1 Hour Canal Cruise

We depart from the Mooloolaba Wharf passenger dock, right behind Underwater World.​

A colourful and very informative live commentary is provided throughout the cruise – so you will not only see the sights, but hear about them as well.

On departure we cruise past the Wharf complex and marina towards Mooloolah Island – a man-made island boasting some of Mooloolaba’s most desirable mansions and award winning homes.
 
We continue on past Minyama Island where you will hear all about its famous residents, celebrities and sports stars, before entering the Kawana Canal system where you will learn the history of the canal development – from useless swamp land into some of Queensland’s most expensive real estate.

It is here that you get to view Croc One, the very boat owned by the late  Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter.

Cruise by the luxury Mooloolaba waterfront homes

Cruise past the Whale One

Feed the pelicans as you cruise Mooloolaba

One hour Mooloolaba Cruise
 
This is where we stop the boat and hand feed the local wild pelicans. We have been doing this for over 27 years now and we are the  only cruise boat that does this. They know us very well.
 
It’s then out to the river heads where we turn the boat around so you can see the breathtaking views of the coastline. From here you can view Mooloolaba Beach right up to Noosa.
 
Mooloolaba Marina cruisesWe then head back through the river, passing the pilot boats used by the Brisbane pilotage service. Here you will also see the wild Osprey eagles’ nest.
On our way back to the Wharf, we pass the commercial fishing boats – home to the largest long line fishing fleet in AustraliaA – as well as prawn trawlers and crab boats.
We finish off the cruise passing the Mooloolaba Marina and The Yacht Club
 
where in our arrival back at The Mooloolaba Wharf, we feed the fish that only come out for us. It is a very unique experience and is just one of the reasons a cruise on the M.V. Mudjimba is one of the most popular things to do in Mooloolaba.
