FAQs - Frequently asked questions

Does it get rough on the water?

No. We only cruise the calm waters of the Noosa River.

Will we get seasick?

The boat is very stable and does not venture into the ocean.  A slight movement is felt when a fast moving boat or jet ski passes.

Will we get wet?

No. The boat can be closed or open by the use of plastic windows. When they are closed, the boat is more weather-tight than most al fresco restaurants.

Can we change the menu and design our own for a charter?

Yes. Just contact us and we will tailor and cost your requirements for you.

Are there toilets on board?

There are 2 modern restrooms located on the dining level for your convenience.

Is the food fresh?

Yes. All the food on-board is brought on just prior to departure. Unlike other boats, our food is prepared and cooked on board, fresh.

Are you in contact with the coast guard?

Yes. We have marine radios and all other safety equipment on board with us at all times.

What are your terms and conditions of booking?

Our terms and conditions are pretty standard on the Noosa River.  Full details on our Terms & Conditions page.
