For very little money you can get a ride along the waterfront, a commentary, beautiful views and a lift to some of the nice bars and restaurants along the way. The best way to travel in Noosa by far

With an afternoon to spare, I decided to do the round trip on the ferry, from Noosaville, to Tewantin, then into Hastings Street and return and it was an informative and amusing journey. "Captain Jono" entertained us with his wealth of knowledge about local history and sights and ensured that the children on board all got a chance to blow... More

We really enjoyed the trip up the river to Tewantin. The Ferry captain was knowledable and interacted with the passengers in a very positive way. He pointed out landmarks on the way along. Very enjoyable!

Using a ferry travel along the Noosa River is a logical solution when entertaining young children. To see the beautiful smiles on those who were invited to toot the whistle was a highlight. Then drivers are really entertainers which adds to the enjoyment .

A cute little ferry well partonised by interstate & overseas visitors. We boarded at Noosa Marina along with about 30 other visitors and were greeted by a jovial, very knowledgeable captain/tour guide who was great with children. We paused to pickup & drop off passengers at various jetties along the way. Kids are also allowed to "toot" the boat's horn... More
