- 1 hr Aquaduck town & river tour
- Opportunity for kids to drive the Aquaduck while in the water
WHAT TO EXPECT
This is Australia’s famous amphibious Aquaduck ride, where you get to experience a Mooloolaba city tour and river cruise in one. The famous amphibious ‘Duck’ vessel with its big yellow beak is now an icon.
The tour combines the best land and river sights of Mooloolaba into one fun and exciting tour. This 1 hr tour takes in the heart of the Sunshine Coast, Mooloolaba Beach, the Esplanade, views over the Pacific Ocean and the Sunshine Strip by road.
Then, the Aquaduck really gets to show its true colours splashing into the water for a scenic cruise of the spectacular Mooloolah River. Enjoy the cruise, taking the opportunity to spot wildlife, experience the beauty of the waterways, see the bustle of trawlers in the harbour and the mega-mansions lining the canals.
The Aquaduck has a unique seating layout offering you more room to stand and move around once you are on the water, along with great views. Children will also have the opportunity to drive the Aquaduck and receive a Captain's certificate.
Where we visit:
- Point Cartright
- Fish Market & Fishing Trawlers
- Mooloolah River and wildlife
- Minyama area
- Canals and waterways lined with mega-mansions

Can I go on the Aquaduck if I am pregnant?
This is completely up to you. The ride is bumpy and maybe uncomfortable from time to time. Many of our tour guides have been pregnant working on the duck up until 9 months but it’s up to you.
Do you operate if it's raining?

Unfortunately, we don’t have storage for luggage or strollers at our departure location. You may find storage lockers at The Wharf.
Is it safe? What if I can't swim?
Yes, the Aquaduck is very safe. You don’t need to swim as we will be keeping you onboard the whole time. We also carry life jackets on board in case of emergency and our trained staff will assist in this situation.
Does it cost extra for kids to drive the Duck?
No. It does not. Once we are on the water, the skipper will offer all children the opportunity to have a turn at driving the Duck if they wish. If they choose to do so, they will be presented with the Aquaduck Captains Certificate personalised with their name. This is free of charge and part of the Aquaduck experience.

The Aquaduck vessels are not wheelchair accessible, unfortunately. There are 5 steps to climb into the Aquaduck. If you can do the stairs our team are happy to assist you into the duck.

Water bottles are accepted onboard, however, no other food or other drinks.
