We have travelled with Caloundra Cruises many times, especially when our grandchildren and visitors join us but we still love to travel through the canals and Pumistone Passage at any given time on our own. It's very magical and very affordable. A wonderful experience

Did the sunset cruise last night, with the added bonus of a full moon. I really enjoyed it. Ken was great and spent time where it was interesting - for example, we paused to watch some skydivers land - so its not the same on every trip. He pointed out the black swans and migratory birds, Enjoyed going close to... More

We have been on Caloundra Cruises a few times now, for different things, morning tea cruise, to photo a wedding, and more. Great Value, great owners, and a lovely thing to do morning, lunch or sunset - highly recommend it for those travelling to Caloundra to see some of the local wildlife, secluded beaches, Dolphins, Dugongs (if you are lucky),...

We decided to take our six & two year old grandchildren on the afternoon cruise; great idea and we all lived it. The price was very good, the cruiser is an exceptionally well maintained wooden cruiser. Not sure how old but such a beautiful old girl with closed in bottom deck and an open top deck. Brilliant commentary by Captain... More

We did the 1.30 pm 90 min Smoothwater classic cruise. The captain was very informative and didn't rely on a pre-recorded spiel to impart his extensive local knowledge of the area. Boat is immaculate and well cared for. A great way to spend Sunday afternoon.

Wend on a short cruise (1.5hrs) yesterday. Well worth the $22 it cost. Relaxing and informative and a chance to see the area at a slower pace and from a different perspective.

A fantastic way to spend a birthday. We had the lucky experience of getting a private tour, due to several other no-shows. The skipper was an expert sailor, moving smoothly through the surf and channel. The historical and environment information was in depth, interesting and accurate, and his friendly manner made the whole experience worthwhile. A beautiful way to experience... More
