Our guide on this cruise, Andy, was absolutely perfect for the job. He was entertaining, informative, & knowledgeable about Noosa, (past & present) and the aspects that have earned Noosa the title of Queensland's first UNESCO Biosphere... More

We caught the Ferry from Stop 5 to the Tewantin Marina and back to visit the Marina Sunday Markets. Our whole experience was a delight (apart from the torrential rain in the afternoon) and I'd highly recommend this if you are visiting Noosa. The Ferry Captains are friendly, professional and can really manoeuvre these wonderful vessels. Photographs line the inside... More

We gad a great time on the sunset cruise. Great value for money. Being a BYO cruise makes it an affordable little experience. Great seeing the sites as well as a perfectly timed cruise to watch the sunset. Only improvement would be to increase the volume so commentary can be heard from top deck. Would recommend and do more then... More
