Maroochy River Cruises Reviews


0 Kerry Pearse

We had a fab time today on the 3 hour eco cruise. Trevor, Kath and Skipper Shorty were terrific. The food was fresh, tasty and plentiful and most of all the Maroochy River was serene and a delight. The boat and wharf was very accessible for people with mobility challenges. If you are on the Sunshine Coast you can't miss taking a few hours out for a piece of tranquility.

Karen, Trevor & Shorty you guys rock. Than you so much for making our special day amazing. Karen you are a legend (probs comes with the name). Thank you for going above and beyond. We will be back to join you on another cruise. Will be spreading the word of how much we loved the service and the food. Who knows maybe anniversary celebrations one day if we can talk you guys into spending another New Year's Eve with us. � Karen & Damo
