There's so much more to Noosa than a world-class surfing beach and a fashionable shopping street. This 45-minute cruise up the Noosa River to Tewantin, with five short stops along the way, is a great way to discover Noosa’s other waterfront life. The sun sends bright stars dancing off the water as you chug past young children learning to sail,... More

We had an enjoyable trip on the Noosa ferry getting off at Hastings Street and returning three hours later. We had free day passes as part of our accommodation deal. Being pale skinned, we sat inside, but there was plenty of room on the top deck for those who could take the hot sun. The skipper was well practiced in... More

Relaxed, informative, humourous trip ! Nothing too much trouble or the skipper! Certainly loves his job. Try this cruise, easier than trying to park in Noosa. Also, Cafes and restaurants within marina produce great food, great value.

Enjoyed a return trip from Tewantin to Noosa Heads. A great way to travel to the busy town of Noosa -- no prospective parking hassles! Interesting sites along the way which is covered by a good humorous commentary by the ferry captain known as Jono. Plenty of stops and eateries along the way. No better way to relax.
