What a memorable trip along the Noosa River with a comfortable boat and enjoyable company. Proprietors were so helpful and knowledgeable about the area and determined to ensure our boat trip would be a highlight of our time with them. Highly recommended

Thx for your review. Both points of disappointment noted. Although serviced regularly, we don't fix something that isn't broken, until it breaks. We always have a boat mechanic on site, so your repair happened quickly.Yay! Re the visor...They get hammered by the perfect sunshine days...More
