A whole bunch of us from our gym organised a day out on the water. From the first moment where we were met at the gate by the Captain and his wife, we were well looked after with awesome and entertaining commentary, fantastic food and lovely service. The cruise took us all the way along the pumicestone passage where we... More

We had good weather and flat water, so the trip was enjoyable for our group of folks. Drinks and scones, jam and cream were most enjoyable. Once again, we did not see any manatees as they appear to be elusive animals. This is a very worthwhile day trip for singles and groups.

Was nice to cruise along the passage and have scones prepared for us. Staff were so friendly and provided entertaining talks about the wildlife, history and landmarks. We went just after holiday traffic so the noise has caused many of the sealife to run off. But we spotted some dolphins towards the end of the cruise. Lovely family or couple... More

Perfect weather, great company, and informative crew. Morning tea cruise a delight, and the sound system and Captain doing a great job, scones and tea very welcome and all the activity on the water makes for a holiday atmosphere. Very proud of this well known and loved tourism high point on Bribie Island. Congratulations to all.

We enjoyed a half day cruise of the passage, which included a chicken and salad lunch in the price. Be sure to go the correct departure point, not near the bridge anymore, as our tour was slightly delayed while we waited for two couples to turn up at the right spot. The staff were very friendly and the commentary was... More

We did the morning tea cruise - 2 hours including morning tea and what a great crew we had. The skipper was very informative during the whole trip and we saw dolphins and dugons and plenty of bird life. What more could you want. We wanted to do the lunch cruise 2 days later but this was totally booked out,... More
