What you can expect

The Pumicestone Passage on Caloundra’s doorstep is 35kms long and separates Bribie Island National Park from the mainland. This internationally significant Marine Park with its numerous islands and creeks is home to over 300 bird species and is an important sanctuary in their migration. Follow the Lighthouse Keepers’ journey south on our award winning Eco Explorer cruise. Departing at 9.30 am every Thursday, this 2 hr 30 min cruise travels to the very heart of the Pumicestone Passage Marine Park. Your experienced tour guide’s commentary will cover the fascinating history, geography and ecology of this pristine region. Spot a sea eagle and watch a wader as we travel the foreshore of Bribie Island. Enjoy a generous morning tea and locally sourced fruit platter while the boat is at anchor. Hear dreamtime legends in the shadow of the Glasshouse Mountains before travelling home in time for lunch.

A relaxed little cruise of the Bribie passage

A relaxed little cruise of the Bribie passage. Very knowledgeable commentary from the Tour Guide gave a wonderful insight into local wildlife and history. Self-focusing binoculars and booklets available for passengers to borrow. The skipper was flexible and happy to turn the boat around for people to better view and photograph wildlife. A tasty morning tea which I found disappointing as one dry biscuit was all that was available after I had enquired in advance if I needed to bring my own gluten free and was told they would provide.
