Best way to discover another side of Noosa, The beauty of the river is a magic backdrop to a relaxing time and the commentary is a way of finding out more, even for locals.

Saw the ferry travelling along the river from the Yacht Club, so a spur of the moment decision saw myself, my Daughter and my Father jump on. Best decision! The trip was lovely. Excellent pace, beautiful sights. The Captain was fantastic. He went out of his way to make the trip fun for my 6yr old. My 68yr old Dad... More

Went on the eco cruise with the Noosa Ferry after talking to the information centre at Noosa Heads in front of the surf club, they are lovely people and as we said we are interested in nature they said this is the cruise to take. From the moment we walked down the ramp to board the boat our guide was... More

Hi Westy- thank you for your wonderful feed back on the Eco cruise and skipper guide Andy- ( he likes your French name more!) Our skippers love this cruise as it gives them an opportunity to share their love of Noosa and its natural history. We limit the numbers so everyone can have a personal experience and as you pointed... More

Rather than try to find a parking spot on Hastings St, we drove to the marina at Tewantin and caught the ferry in. A family ticket for $55 allows you to hop on and off at any of the 5 or 6 stops all day. The trip from Tewantin to Hastings St takes about 30 mins and is a great... More

Hi Neville thanks for taking the time to write your review of your family day on the ferry Parking at Tewantin during the busy times is a great idea and the ferry gets you into the heart of Noosa Heads with the main beach only a 200 metre walk We are glad you enjoyed your day. More

For $22.50 (2016 price) I could hop on and off the ferry all day. I chose Sunday to travel as they had 2 boats on and more times for departures. I got the first ferry in the morning from Noosaville to Noosa. And wandered around for a while at Noosa. Then hopped back on and went down to Tewantin and... More

As we were going to have lunch at Noosa Heads we decided to park the car at the Noosa Marina and travel on the ferry to Hastings street and then return to Tewantin. Apart from the ferry skipper claiming he reminded people of Brad Pitt the trip was excellent.

Thanks Kerry for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your day on the ferry. Despite the skipper's claims, you are not the only one who cant see see any resemblance what so ever to the famous actor See you in Noosa soon. More

We took the ferry from Noosa opposite the Sheraton to Tewantin where we looked around the wharf before settling in to have fish & chips overlooking the river. Lots to see!
