We had an absolute ball on this cruise up the Noosa River. Welll worth the money. The skipper did a running commentary pointing out areas of interest. Well recommended to take this cruise.

The $20 All day ferry pass is the perfect way to get out on the water and get around. The ferry came regularly on a Saturday, the Skipper was friendly and informative, and the boat was lovely and in good condition. Good value for money and a great way to see the sights.

$20 for a day pass on the ferry, we went from Tewantin to Noosa Heads and stopped off on the way back then got on it again. Good informative skipper, beautiful views from the ferry. Easy for familes to use.

We went on the sunset cruise with Brad, we were the only passengers from Tewantin, joined later at other stops, we took a bottle of wine and beers and had a very pleasant evening. The sunset was superb. Excellent value and Brad was a wonderful host.
