But what about the food??

Beautiful boat, lovely cruise, Japanese finger food was only one item per person & overpriced! Very disappointing.

If you are over fifty, this cruise is not for you. The boat was crammed with young party goers (three birthday parties), the music was very load, and there was not enough seating. The boat got stuck on the sand at one stage and everyone had to move to the front of the boat to allow it to be released.... More

This a beautifully refurbished boat and you can't fault the scenery! This was a nice long trip and the tickets were very reasonably priced. It was all timed perfectly to capture the sunset at the end. Howeverrrr... it IS a party boat so if you're a fun loving 20 something and into loud party music, this is the trip for... More

Sunday sunset cruise is for night clubbers rather than people interested in a pleasant sunset cruise. It should be explicit with passengers that this is what it does. It left the dock one hour late. Was very crowded (not sure whether it was overloaded). Lots of alcohol. People were smoking on board. We ran aground. Great decor, reasonably priced drink,... More

Could not think of a better way to spend a Sunday arvo then on the Noosa River. Amazing Boat very friendly team that Scott and his Business partner have put together. The cocktails were great and a mixed age group on board with plenty of room downstairs to enjoy the Noosa river.

Cruise was good ~ the 3 hours river cruise went as far as lake cooroibah and we saw the sunset. We loved the whole thing. Loved the music. Drinks was expensive but cocktail was pretty good. Food selection was terrible in my opinion, variety was terrible, price was terrible, slow food service, if you are vegetarian or do not eat... More

This was a totally incredible experience! Scott and Bree have recently renovated the MV Catalina and it is a beautiful boat that makes a perfect backdrop for excellent photos. We had our wedding ceremony on-board the Catalina with 115 people on the upper deck (including chairs for VIPs) followed by cocktails and drinks. For the ceremony the skipper placed the... More

A lovely afternoon on the beautiful noosa river. Staff friendly and boat is great. Drinks are way too expensive and the music is targeted towards 18 year olds. DJ was rude when asked to play something more appropriate for the audience. Locals will only go once and hire a BBQ pontoon in future.
