Mooloolaba Canal Cruise

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Mooloolaba Canal Cruise is a small family-run business that takes immense pride in providing an unforgettable, family-friendly and affordable experience.

Their daily cruises operate aboard the recently refurbished 1963 timber ferry, the MV Mudjimba, which has been operating from the Mooloolaba Wharf for over 30 years.

Mooloolaba Canal Cruises are a “must-do” for anyone visiting the beautiful Sunshine Coast. Consistently awarded Trip Advisor “Travellers Choice” and a “Best of Queensland Experience”.

Enjoy a one-hour relaxing still-water cruise along the Mooloolah River, and canal system, viewing opulent waterfront mansions and historical landmarks while listening to live and informative commentary from your local Skipper.

Children are invited to take the helm alongside the Skipper, and their resident pelicans fly in and catch a fish or two from the side of the boat.

They run three one-hour cruises seven days a week and a beautiful sunset cruise.

A fully licensed bar onboard offers alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and they’re fully BYO for food. You can also hire the boat for your special function. Bus Groups are popular and very welcome.

Also now available is a Cruise and Lunch Combo Option with “The Dock” Restaurant.

Check out their website for cruise times and prices. Please book online or call to make your booking today.


From $23 to $35

Leave the land behind for a relaxing change of pace cruising through the calm waters of the Mooloolah River on Mooloolaba’s most popular canal cruise.

Slipping away from the Mooloolaba Wharf your Skipper will introduce you to the locals with an entertaining commentary – the recent residents who live in their opulent canalside homes and the native wildlife that has made these waters their home for thousands of years.

Next stop is the river mouth where you can bring out the camera for breathtaking, expansive coastal views from Mooloolaba to Noosa before the boat is turned around.

Keep the camera handy because the pelicans that live here know the Mudjimba well and if they are hungry, they will come alongside where you can hand feed them.

On the way back to the Mooloolaba Wharf you can get hands on by taking the helm to drive the boat alongside the Skipper, another photo opportunity not to be missed.

This unique experience is just one of the reasons a Mooloolaba Canal Cruise is one of the best things to do on the Sunshine Coast.
