Saltwater EcotoursSunshine Coast, Queensland

The idea of cruising down the Mooloolaba canals, eating the famous Mooloolaba prawns while sipping on beer and champagne sits really nicely with us. 

But it’s not just the seafood that brings the local theme to Saltwater Ecotours’ boat cruises on the Sunshine Coast. Their  vision is to “establish a unique marine experience that would inspire a deeper connection to Indigenous culture and the ocean.”

The cultures of both Torres Strait Islander and the local Kabi Kabi people are explored and explained in detail on this two-hour cruise, set on a beautifully restored, century-old sailing vessel. 

There’s a variety of different cruises they offer, with subtle differences depending on what you’re after from your experience. 

As well as all that $1.50 of each ticket to the Southern Ocean Carbon Company, a carbon mitigating company with a focus on growing seaweed in the oceans of Southern Australia. So you can cruise along with a champagne in one hand and a prawn in the other, and know you’re doing your bit for Mother Earth. It doesn’t get any better than that.
