Calming and informative tour

We thoroughly enjoyed sitting back, listening to a mix of music and history about the Noosa River and surrounds. We thoroughly recommend others partake in this experience of seeing Noosa from the water.

Beautiful Sunset Cruise

We loved this cruise! The most beautiful way to experience the Noosa sunset. Great to see the Noosa waterways from a different perspective. Gary's commentary was great, ice buckets and glasses were provided for our drinks and even blankets when it got cold. We would definitely recommend it and will be back. Thankyou.
