We took the ferry from Tiwanton to Noosa Heads last week. Great way to get in to the town but a really enjoyable trip made meow so by the entertains commentary from the laconic skipper, Brad. Just a lovely way to spend a morning.

In thirty (or so) years of visiting the Sunshine Coast I had never even thought of taking this ferry trip, but am glad it was suggested as it was a very enjoyable trip. We did the full Tewantin to Hastings Street trip (and return) and at $45.00 for two it was good value for a couple of relaxed hours. Seeing... More

Such a great way to travel. You get to see Noosa from the water, and it's just such a magical experience with the cool breezes flowing through the boat and the top viewing deck. Would highly recommend it.

My friend and I went on the eco cruise because I love boat rides. The cruise starts and ends at Noosa Heads and lasts about 2hrs 15 mins. We cruised around the headland and through parts of the canal system, all the while listening to the commentary. Morning tea was served on board before we went on the eco walk... More

We booked into the Eco Cruise with high hopes based on other reviews and the company's advertising. Boy were we mistaken. A genuine rip-off in our view. The ferry mostly took the same path of any other Noosa ferry, just down the main residential canal, around the headland where people were fishing, and into another residential canal (but also full...

We hadn't been on the ferry ride for a couple of years and it was a nice Sunday and we actually found a carpark nearby! Reasonably priced, the trip is very pleasant and the entertaining commentary from the captain was enjoyable and educational.

Even though we had done a day cruise previously, we found the sunset cruise showed us things that you don’t see during the day … and it seemed like some of the multi million dollar canal houses were lit up (on display) just for our enjoyment.
