Christmas Lights viewing Cruise on the Jet Boat.
Every year, during the month of December only, the waterfront properties of Mooloolaba, Minyama, and Buddina create a wonderful Christmas light spectacle, viewable only from the water. All as part of the now famous Mooloolaba Christmas light parade, in which up to 100 boats compete for the prize of best Christmas light display. Properties owners along the waters edge compete for the prize of best presented display as well, and each year they clearly pull out all stops to have a shot at first prize!
You can now jump aboard Hela-Va Jet for a 90 minute (one and a half hours) gentle cruise and experience the wonderfull Christmas Lights on offer on many of the waterfront properties along the Mooloolah River and canals.
Our jet powered vessel, with its shallow draft and ability to do slow on the spot spin-turns lets us access the canals larger boats just cannot attempt.
With a maximum of 12 passengers at any time, our passenger numbers are always an optimal size to ensure all of our passengers enjoy total visibility of the lights.
This cruise offers a very personal experience out on the protected calm inland waters, with amazing views of the absolutely amazing efforts made by the property owners. Add to this our friendly and professional staff, and we can guarantee you will enjoy an delightful and fun experience. Ideal for families!
Also available – the opportunity to be part of the Christmas light Boat parade! Hela-Va Jet will be entered into the contest, and you can be aboard as we participate in the very exclusive parade. Only one such cruise a year and only 12 seats in total!
Light refreshments and non alcoholic drinks are included. Alcohol can be brought on a BYO basis, but No red Wine.
