Welcome Aboard the Bribie Island Ferryman

What better way for you to discover Bribie Island than by its beautiful waterway known as the Pumicestone Passage that separates mainland Brisbane from paradise.


Bribie Island, located only 40 minutes north of Brisbane Airport and the Sunshine Coast, is known for its sensational beaches, coastal waterways, arts, culture, food, and laid back nature.


To immerse yourself in the best of Bribie Island, you must not pass the opportunity to relish in nature’s wonderland the Pumicestone Passage. While enjoying your Morning Tea, Captains Lunch or Sunset Cruise, you will travel into the heart of the Pumicestone Passage which is steeped in history, rich in wildlife and natural beauty.


On your cruise you will get to experience the historic trails sailed by Mathew Flinders and hear all the amazing history and culture with the Skippers live commentary. Be sure to keep a keen eye out for the local sea birds, dolphins, dugong and sea turtles that have made this area home.   


Rest assured you will have a very stable, calm, comfortable and smooth cruise aboard our custom built eco cruiser. The boat can carry 52 people undercover with comfortable seating, open air viewing deck upstairs, 360 degree views whether you are on the lower or upper deck and licensed bar.



If you are photography, nature or even a cruising enthusiast that knows a great sight-seeing opportunity when you see one, you will not be disappointed during a cruise aboard The Ferryman.

Each Trip is Like New

Such is the nature of The Ferryman Cruise, it doesn't matter how many times you take this wonderful adventure, it is always new! Nature is opportunistic and you never know what might pop up during the day! Different times of the day, month or year, always that bit different. Mix that with an informative and entertaining crew and you've got the perfect mix.
