Funtastic Cruises launches ‘The Kraken’ just in time for school holidays

Imagine the thrill of skimming across the azure waters of the Southern Great Barrier Reef, the wind in your hair, the sun on your face, and the breathtaking beauty of the Keppel Islands on the horizon.

Local brothers Ollie and Carl from Funtastic Cruises are proud to introduce a new custom-built speed boat, ‘The Kraken’ to Keppel Bay, offering day trips to Great Keppel Island.

At a launch held at The Waterline Restaurant on Thursday 30th December, media and guests had the opportunity to hear first-hand about the capabilities of the new vessel and jump onboard for a look around the exciting new tour offering for the Capricorn Coast region.

Moving at 23 knots, the ‘Kraken’ is set to transport guests over to the islands in 15-20 minutes, running seven days a week.

A first of its kind for the nation, the fast boat will slice through the waves in all weather conditions, providing a quick, comfortable, yet exhilarating adventure for its passengers.

The Kraken’s arrival at Keppel Bay Marina is timely, as we kick off our busy festive season.

Bookings are now available, and a full outline of what is offered onboard can be found on the Funtastic Cruises website –

Capricorn Enterprise congratulates Ollie and Carl for their vision of creating a wonderful new tourism offering for visitors and locals to the Capricorn Coast.
