“Amazing wedding with help of the Noosa Cruising Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

My wife and I would like to thank Ian, Susa, and all of the other staff for making our weding day so perfect.
Firstly, it was very easy to plan as Ian kept in touch by email over a number of months. We were given suggested food packages, ideas for photographers/florists/dj's/celebrants etc, schedules for the day, and updated pricing each time we wanted to add anything else, mocktails, cocktails etc.
The boat picked all of our guests up on time, it was decorated very nicely inside and the staff provided drinks as we boarded. We sailed over to the sand island where the staff set up the decorations for our ceremony (bali flags, pagodas with flowers, celebrant's table and sound system).
All of the guests had a great time and we spent a while on the island for photos and everyone was able to go on board the boat for drinks/bathroom/sit down etc. Everyone was allowed a tab, payable at the end of the night so no one had to worry about getting their wallets out all night.
We boarded the boat again for our meal and although the kitchen is very small (more floor space for the guests!) the food was served on time, hot, and delicious. The steak in particular was amazing, no fat and everyone cleared their plates. The sea food on the mixed starter was also great.
We stopped to pick up the DJ and suddenly there was a firework show on the river in front of us, we had no idea! Susa was kind enough to take our flowers and gifts back to our hotel for us so that we didn't need to worry about carrying everything later at night.
We carried on sailing up and down the river, everyone having a great time both in the main area of the boat and on the top level where it was nice to chat for those who wanted to get away from the music for a little while, I even saw a few shooting stars!
All in all we were dropped back off at Noosa Woods Jetty and everyone had loved the night.
We'd definitely recommend!

“Great Lunch Cruise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

My husband and I had a great time on the lunch cruise we had with Noosa Cruising Restaurant.
It was very well organised and we especially enjoyed that the food was cooked on board.
Ian was a fantastic host and would definitely recommend anyone holidaying in Noosa to book a cruise with them.

“Fantastic night out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013 via mobile

Thank you Ian and Souza for a wonderful night of delicious food with beautiful views along the river. Ian, the chef, is a 'triple threat' - cooks, entertains (providing our intimate group of 4 couples with local facts and comic relief) and is a bit of a music buff (we didn't see him dance but he probably knows a few moves). We loved everything about the sunset dinner cruise.

“Loved it so much that we have booked for our Christmas Party!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Being the Managing Director of GIDY UP ~ PACK ME UP .. a very busy Delivery & Home & Office Removal Business here on the Sunshine Coast, I find it very hard to get away on any sort of Holiday as like Ian I'm the skipper at the wheel so to speak. So when I stepped aboard the Noosa Cruising Restaurant with my girlfriend one Saturday night in Sept 2013 I straight away was greeted by a very lovely guy named Ian who made the 3 hour dinner cruise seem more like 6 and what an enjoyable, peaceful amazing cruise it was. Firstly the entrees where extremely tasty and enjoyable. To be followed by a perfectly cooked steak and main course. Of course the bottles of wine shared around the table also helped to relax the whole evening on the water. But then wait there was more the dessert OMG what an AWESOME night. It was that good that the TEAM at GIDY UP are all booking a Xmas Party to celebrate a Year on the way out and the Xmas time that is about to arrive. What can I say if you haven't been on this cruise you are missing out. Get in touch with Ian as soon as you can and organise ONE of his cruises the dinner one especially. Great value, Great enjoyable evening with a Great Host. Who knows we may see you there as I'm sure I will be making this cruise something to visit regularly. MERRY XMAS & a Happy New Year to You all ... from Daryl at GIDY UP ~ PACK ME UP (1300 443 987)

Hmmm. "Cruising with Ian makes a three hour cruise seem like six hours?" I hope this doesn't put people off! I'm glad you took time out to relax and thanks for taking the time to post a review too.

Looking forward to seeing you and the rest of your team at Gidy up ~ Pack me up onboard for your Christmas Party.
