We had a hens day recently onboard and it was fabulous! The crew were so welcoming and entertaining we laughed from the moment we boarded until we disembarked. I would highly recommend this scenic and entertaining cruise to anyone looking for a great experience in Noosa.

Another happy hen! Glad to hear it! Thanks for posting a review Kim M - it means even more to us when it is a guest, rather than a host or organiser, who takes the time to write a review. I guess that's what a fabulous day on board will do to a girl?! :o) Obviously, the male crew on... More

Well don't blame us! The "best hen's party idea" ever was YOUR idea! You contacted us and organised all the girls to come on board - in fantastic fancy dress (err, for much of the cruise ;o) - not me! And I am so glad you did. Thank you Ktdeee for a great day and a great review - I... More

The cruise itself was exceptional, the hospitality and dining outstanding, and on a very hot Sunday the breezes over the water made the experience very comfortable for our birthday celebration. We fully recommend this restaurant experience and will definitely be repeat customers. Dinner cruise next!

"Exceptional and outstanding"?! Wow! What a great review, thank you Stephen T. You're right it was a lovely way to spend a hot Sunday afternoon - the river is always the coolest place to be as the wind is cooled as it crosses the water, straight into the boat to cool our passengers (if not the chef, slaving away in...

Our host Ian made everyone, including the nervous water travellers, feel very at ease when giving the very detailed, informative and hilarious evacuation brief. The very friendly wait staff and the captain of the cruise were very friendly as our group relaxed, soaking in the surrounds and dining. Ian's suggestion of live musicians really added to the atmosphere allowing the... More

Hilarious safety briefing? It's the only way I know to try to get everyone's attention during what is usually a boring one-way transfer of boring, but essential safety information! I'll bet every one of your colleagues will remember some of the information, despite the drinking and merriment which followed! Thank you for your detailed and informative review, which no doubt...

The waiter was above and beyond amazing. The skipper was delightful & friendly. 110% cleanliness (super impressed) which is worth 5 stars alone for a boat in my opinion!!!! The entree was quite nice, tasty & of good and appropriate size & temperature. The Ravioli main was mildly flavoured and a little disappointing. The steak main was unfortunate. It was... More

Hi there Felicity W. Thank you for posting a review. I'm so pleased you took the time to compliment the waiter (Julian) and skipper (Geoff) (and, indirectly, the cleaner, my wife Susa!) - they all do a great job. Five stars? Thank you! I'm also stoked that you were super happy with the entree and dessert :o) I am very... More

Our host Ian was funny & informative from the get go. He was very patient with all the kids on board as was our unflappable captain. It was a beautiful evening, the cocktails were great and the food was best we've ever had on a restaurant cruise (chef did a fabulous job in her minute kitchen). The waiter was charming... More

From our phonecall to book, to the end of the cruise, the service was excellent. The food is delicious (we are vegetarian and well catered for) the other clients all seemed very happy with their meals. A good choice of wine. Ian gave a very well informed and at times humorous talk along the way pointing out different landmarks. I... More

We enjoyed a sunset cruise for NYE and had a fantastic evening with Noosa Cruising. Great value for money, great food, great drinks and great staff. The views along the river are spectacular and the boat was perfectly positioned for the new year’s fireworks. Definitely worth adding to your itinerary – it was nice to get away from dining on...

We enjoyed this experience very much. Ian (the owner) is lovely and funny. The service was excellent from all the staff on board. The food was pretty good. This was the best dining experience we had in Noosa.
