No licence is required, our qualified staff will give you a detailed briefing and send you on your way. We have now included electric bikes to our business, we have 2 tandems and 2 singles, they are a great way to explore the area without the hassle of parking. See us on Facebook too.

“The most amazing, serene way to see the Noosa River.”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

We were very fortunate to be able to go for a cruise around the Noosa River for the afternoon & had the most wonderful time. The boat was so easy to drive & so quiet & peaceful. The only time the serenity was broken was if a noisy power boat went by. The owners, Kirsty & Linda could not have been more helpful & had lots of tips of where to go. They are both so friendly & nothing was too much trouble. They are very passionate about looking after the environment & these boats certainly tick all the boxes in that regard. It was so peaceful cruising on the River, sipping cold bubbles. If you are in the area, do not miss this unique experience.

“Like a floating lounge room!”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

Extremely clean and comfortable boat with "lounge-style" seating and everything you could want for a relaxing trip on the beautiful Noosa River. We are a local family (with a teenager and a little one) and found this a fun and unique way to explore our favorite spots. So lovely to be able to stop for a coffee in Hastings St and then have a swim on North Shore before cruising quietly back to the jetty. (The lack of engine noise was such a bonus!) It was great to be able to cruise in the shade and take advantage of the cool river breezes on a hot day. The owners are absolutely delightful, helpful and enthusiastic. Will definitely recommend this to others and it is a must for any of our future visitors to Noosa.

Thank you for such a positive review! We are so happy the boats we believe in so much have been a pleasure for you and your family. We love the quietness too, it is a joy for us to watch the boats slide silently away from the jetty with only the noise of the group enjoying themselves reaching our ears.

“Fabulous boats, great customer service”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

These lovely quiet boats are so easy to drive and totally weather prove with great sun & wind protection - you can also open up all the side panels depending on what the weather conditions are. We have 2 small children and hired these boats x2 during our 16 night stay. We can't recommend them highly enough, they are so clean and the kids were happy to play on the carpet. They also had some lovely colouring in and pencils on board which were much appreciated by our 3 yr old. The cooler box which is build into one of the seats was fabulous to keep the drinks cold and both Kirsty and Linda are really lovely and helpful. They have good knowledge of the river and lake system with we really enjoyed exploring as well as pulling up at a little beach and having a swim. All so easy, quiet and no fumes!! The boats reminded us a bit of being in Italia and they drive like a golf buggy :-) We will recommend Malu Os to everyone traveling to Noosa, fabulous boats and great customer service!! Thanks girls, we will be back Suzie & Rob

Suzi and Rob, thank you so much for your review. We are so keen on our product that it is wonderful to hear other people believe in it too. Good service is easy with good customers, though I am not sure Max would agree! Look forward to seeing you again soon.

“GREAT WAY TO SEE THE NOOSA RIVER AND CANALS FROM THE WATER”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Our adult family had a wonderful time seeing the river and canals in the Noosaville, Queensland, area from the stable, easy to operate electric boat we hired from Malu Os. It would also be suitable for a family with young children or teens. (I chose "Family (teens)" for the "sort of visit", as there was no choice that was simply "Family"). The price was very reasonable and the boat was equipped with a built-in ice chest for drinks. We were even provided with a wine cooler stick to keep our bottle of wine cold. Kirsty and Linda are the owners and they provided efficient, friendly, knowledgeable service. In fact, they were great! We will be recommending this new company to anyone who is interested.

Thanks so much for spending the time to write this review. It is reassuring to know that we can still have fun with our older kids in the natural environment. We look forward to seeing many more visitors from the US coming and enjoying the beauty of the Noosa River.

“Safe and Sound(less)”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

What a great & unique way to cruise around the waterways of the Noosa River. We've taken these "golf buggies on water" out a number of times and explored different parts of the river system each time. They are super quiet with no petrol fumes to interfere with the enjoyment of your present company.
Being very stable and manoeuvrable, they are the perfect craft to see how the other half live in the canals of Noosa Sound. Also, no boat licence required!!!
Kirsty and Linda were fantastic with their helpful knowledge in the operation of the boats as well as the areas to view.
Will definitely be recommending to anyone I know
