I booked the same day as the cruise and received a prompt confirmation email.
Quote (We will be boarding at 9.15am for a 9.30am departure and we board directly from the beach on Sylvan Beach Esplanade, opposite Bribie Island Hotel (29 Sylvan Beach Esplanade), about 300 metres further along from the red hire dinghies which are just next to the Bribie Bridge).
We arrived over at Bribie fifteen minutes earlier as required and boarded by steps from the beach to the boat.
Easy to find and parking was close by. The Cruise went for just under three hours. Because there was a cold breeze we ended up shutting all the plastic curtains, which obstructed our view somewhat. A few braver of the forty odd strong group went upstairs on the open deck to watch for wildlife and enjoy the brisk fresh air. There was a brief sighting of a Dugong, which caused a bit of excitement We saw pelicans, shags, white cranes and numerous other birds and a good view of Mission Point Camping ground. Another one of those places we'll just have to explore.
We enjoyed a cup of Tea/Coffee and Scones and tried to hear the running commentary by the Captain. The sound was somewhat distorted but what we did hear was interesting and informative. The crew was friendly and helpful and the layout open and suitable for most groups. The ferryman cruise was a gentle trip up the river and with the right mix could be a fun and exciting venue for a private function.
