... or so I thought. You get on somewhere and get off somewhere else (in our case Noosaville to Noosa return). In fact it was a great way to learn much more about the area than we would have otherwise. Brad (Pitt, so he claims) the skipper was wonderfully informative about local history, geography, property pricing etc. If we go... More

This is a good way to fill in the day. It was good value and they have senior fares which is good. The ferry travels from Noosa to Trewantin and there are a number of stops along the way. You can get on and off from early morning through to sunset. Captain Johno is very entertaining throughout the day, not... More

We've lived here a few years, yet this was our first trip on the ferry. It won't be our last. Lovely trip on a very clean, well maintained boat with a very knowledgeable Captain Jono. He knows more local gossip than we do for sure! Lovely to see a side of Noosa we hadn't seen before and very reasonable price.

This attraction was so worthwhile as the return journey was just $20. We were thoroughly entertained by the ship's master and his trainee as the banter was good hearted and friendly. Their knowledge of the points of interest were a great addition to our journey. This really is a worthwhile activity if you are in Noosa for a few days... More

We took the ferry from Tewantin to Noosa to spend the day at Hastings street. It was a fun interesting way to travel to Noosa and we left it until late in the afternoon so that we caught the sun setting on our way back. Great information about the area, it's history and environmental issues, beautiful views and a very... More

Took the Eco cruise last Tuesday, what a treat. Captain Andy is a local science teacher (was he wagging school??), so was able to explain the ecology, bird life and point out underwater activities. Being a long time local, he was also able to intersperse the educational commentary with bits and pieces about the many amazing houses along the waterways.... More

Caught the ferry from the Tewantin Marina to Noosa Heads at lunchtime. Friendly and informative captain, pointing out information on the social aspects, history, environment and real estate along the way. Did some walking around the Heads and returned on the second-last ferry. They leave every hour, so very convenient to plan a day away from the car (and all... More
