We caught the ferry from Pelican Boats stop #3 and enjoyed the commentary from our captain and the scenery en route to Noosa Heads. It beats trying to find car parking!

We purchased an all day pass so that we could hop on and off the ferry at our leisure. It was a lovely sunny Sunday morning and we first caught the ferry to the Marina for the Sunday markets where we enjoyed the many stalls and shops available. From there we got on and off the ferry at a couple... More

My family had the pleasure of being skippered by Andy on a sunset cruise last weekend. Despite the cloudy skies we had a great hour and a half journey, enjoying the sights of the river and a few drinks (loved the b.y.o!). My children were thoroughly entertained by Andy, as were my parents-in-law. The perfect pre-dinner activity!

A lovely... More

Lovely afternoon on the ferry, very informative captain, who interacted with all passengers, including the kids on board. We had free tickets through our accommodation, but we would have paid for tickets anyway. Great views of the river and surrounds ? Well worth the trip

The Ferry is the best way to move from Hastings Street all the way to Tewantin. The commentary is comprehensive and the views of the river banks are awesome.

A 30 minute trip from the Sheraton jetty to the Marina at Tewantin. Great wait to enjoy the river and the sights. An all day pass means you can get on and off when you want to.
