Took a two hour Eco tour with the family around the Noosa river and canals. A relaxing way to spend time, made all the more enjoyable by the enthusiasm and knowledge of the boat captain and tour guide Andy. Lots of info about the history of Noosa, the million dollar houses lining the bank, the birds, plants, the river itself,... More

We loved this little ferry! With a day pass we spent all day hopping on and off. The captain was also super with the kids, letting our boys blow the horn (highlight of their weekend). We wanted to go back for the evening/sunset cruise, but the kids were too tired.. maybe next time!

What a perfect start to the day. Getting off and on the ferry at your leisure and having a fun, light hearted commentary as you cruise along makes this a must to do, while your in Noosa. Very reasonably priced.

Had a great morning last Monday on the eco cruise with Andy. Even though we have stayed many times on Hastings street, we have never made use of the river. What a mistake!! Andy was informative, interesting, friendly and made the experience very enjoyable. We then spent the rest of day using our free ferry pass, ending up on the... More

Taking this ferry trip is a great way to see Noosa from a different angle and you don't have to do battle to find a car park either! We did the cruise up and back and parked at Tewantin in the free Marina carpark. Captain Johnno is pure entertainment and apart from his repetoire of jokes, provided all on board... More

Caught the last ferry of the evening and enjoyed the cruise up the river, although we had to walk back :-) . The captain was easygoing and straightforward. The day pass may be the best idea as there are places to stop along the way and view is good.

What a great way to spend a lazy afternoon!! The Noosa Ferry Cruise takes about 30-40 minutes from Tewantin to Noosa Heads and stops off at several restaurants and spots of interest along the river. We took a selection of cheeses and crackers and a couple of bottles of wine onboard and the friendly Captain Johno supplied the (plastic) glasses... More

The ferry trip to Tewantin from Noosa Heads and return takes about 35 minutes and is beautiful, following the river, and showcasing views of all the expensive houses, and other beaches along the way. The commentary from the captain was very informative and interesting.
