CHRISTMAS EVE Lights Cruise – December 24
There is no better time than Christmas Eve to be joining us on our 1.5 hour cruise, as we take you through the Mooloolah River and Canals enjoying the marvels of Christmas Lights displays the houses put on at this time of the year. And of course on Christmas Eve you are seeing the Christmas Lights and waterways at their absolute BEST! Christmas Eve is without doubt THE most impressive of all the evenings to view this wonderful spectacle! And what better way to begin the true Christmas period.
Every year, during the month of December only, the waterfront properties of Mooloolaba, Minyama, and Buddina create a wonderful Christmas lights spectacle. The reality is that this is viewable only from the water. Properties owners along the water’s edge compete for the prize of best presented display. Each year they clearly pull out all stops to have a shot at first prize! And the atmosphere it creates truly brings Christmas to the Sunshine Coast!
You can enjoy this very special exhibition aboard Crusader 1, on Christmas Eve. Relax and wind down on this gentle and fun cruise, which takes you through the river and main canals of Mooloolaba, Minyama and Buddina. You will experience firsthand the wonderful Christmas Lights on offer on many of the waterfront properties and relax in a fun and comfortable atmosphere aboard one of the largest river cruise vessels on the Sunshine Coast.
With small passengers numbers on such a large boat (45 passengers max) everyone can fully enjoy total visibility, have room to move about and have their choice of seating, ensuring you will always enjoy total visibility of the lights. Enjoy cruising gently in protected waters for 1 1/2 hours! We set off just before sunset so that you can experience that wonderful vista of the sun setting over the Glasshouse Mountains before we head off to enjoy the lights spectacle.
Experience this very special and personal experience on the protected and always calm inland waters. We guarantee you will enjoy a delightful and fun experience. Ideal for families and young children too!
Food can be brought on a BYO basis! Drinks available from the bar.
Unfortunately this cruise is NOT available as one of our Seafood Cruises due to the Bridge Seafoods closing early on this day.
