Noosa Cruises 2017-12-04T21:28:19+00:00

Come and experience the joys of cruising the beautiful Noosa river. We offer private dinner cruises, pre-dinner cruises at sunset, moonlight dessert cruises and breakfast cruises.

Our Gondola seats up to six people in comfort and glides almost silently through the luxury canals of Noosa Sound and the protected waters of Noosa River. Relax on board with romantic music and your choice of BYO drinks. Perfect as an intimate experience for couples or a special group of friends or family.

Our main pick up points are at the Sofitel Hotel Jetty and the jetty outside Ricky’s Bar + Restaurant. See the map on the Cruises page for more detail of our pickup points and cruising area.

Cruises are BYO drinks, but we supply ice buckets, ice and glasses.

Our cruises are by booking only. To confirm your booking, we require a deposit or pre-payment by credit card or direct deposit.

“Most romantic activity in Noosa”
My husband and I treated ourselves to a moonlit dessert cruise on the 3rd night of our honeymoon in Noosa. The dessert plate from Ricky’s was great and we felt like there was plenty of time to just sit and take it all in. It is the most romantic thing we have ever done and would recommend it all couples as a treat to yourselves. Thanks for giving us a beautiful memory of a wonderful night.

“Romantic moonlit dessert cruise”
Probably the most romantic activity a person could take a loved one on. We did the moonlit dessert cruise and loved it. The gondola far exceeded my expectations for style and comfort and the desert tasting plater not only looked great but also tasted great. I recommend this trip to anyone that wants to see the river but highly recommend the night cruise to any couples.

“The most romantic way to see Noosa”
Ricardo the Gondolier is wonderful – the service is excellent and Ricardo takes his job seriously. His gondola is beautifully maintained. We booked a sunset cruise, took our own champagne but Ricardo organised a seafood platter from the Sofitel Hotel for us. WOW! So delicious! The gondola can seat up to 6 people so we plan to go with friends next time. Highly recommended!
