“The grooviest way to see Noosa from the water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2010

This is absolutely the coolest boat in Noosa. It is a classic mahogany speed boat, the kind of boat you see in books and never think you will have a chance to ride in. If you visit Noosa you definately should see the sites from the water and this has to be the best way to do it! We did the 90 minute cruise and it was perfect - it took in the river, lake, river mouth and canals around Noosa Heads. Michael was an excellent host (and driver) and also provided us with some of our best holiday snaps! It is an open boat so good weather helps (we had a nice day - like many days on the Sunshine coast) but I can't imagine that a light shower would detract from the fun of this cruise. Apparently Micahel does provide umbrellas in the event of a shower! We did this trip in June and a cardi or light jacket is advisable when the speed gets up. We had a party of four which included two parents in their 80's and everyone enjoyed the trip. My dad said it was the highlight of his stay at Noosa.

“Cruising Noosa like a Movie Star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2010

Noosa Dreamboats creates a truly special kind of feeling. Michael clearly loves his "job" and brags about his "office". What a fun and seriously beautiful way to spend a couple of hours exploring the beautiful Noosa Sound. Michael obviously cherishes his immaculate Fletcher mahogany "dreamboat" (his office) and proudly showed and explained the serene and natural beauty of the picturesque Noosa landscape to us. Then, powering up, we felt the wind in our hair and experienced the glamour of feeling like a movie star as all heads turned toward us roaring down the river. What an amazing feeling! A great time, a great tour - thanks Michael.

“DREAM BOAT is right - totally awesome!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2010

We were lucky enough to spend a lovely afternoon cruising on the Noosa Waterways on this gorgeous boat. I am not a real "boatie" but the craftsmanship in this boat is superb and I felt like a millionaire as we motored around. The trip itself was fantastic as Michael took us wherever we wanted to go so not only did we see the magnificent houses but we also went up the river and out to the mouth. It was fantastic. I would have no hesitation on recommending this cruise for anyone that wants to see the waterways in style. Very good day and Michael made us feel very welcome. Awesome!!!!

“Absolutely wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2010

Michael and the Noosa Dream are the quintessential combination producing a relaxing and exhilarating experience. The boat was absolutely immaculate and stunning, and Michael's professional yet friendly manner remains unsurpassed. We would not hesitate to recommend it not only as a wonderful tourist attraction, but a very different way to see so much more of such beautiful scenery.

“Best River Experience at Noosa ever*****”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2010

Thank you so much Michael and Sandy this was a fabulous experience and 90 minutes seemed like just a moment. Michael driving the boat so cool and elegantly over the Noosa River and into the lakes to this romantic little island past Sir Richard Branson's private island retreat, WOW.
What an experience to be a guest on your wonderful boat and for 90 minutes to call it mine! This is the best water experience at Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. Thank you for having this wonderful idea and vision of Noosa Dreamboats.
