Our speciality: Day trips to the Noosa Everglades

What could be better than spending a day outdoors enjoying the very best that Noosa has to offer, by exploring the pristine and tranquil Noosa Everglades by canoe or kayak. 

Whether you are a novice or an experienced paddler, we specialise in helping you get the very best from the experience by providing the right gear and the best advice on where to go and what to see and do, at very reasonable prices.

We keep the cost down by making these self-guided, though the trips are fully inclusive with everything you need ... including canoe hire, safety gear, instruction, detailed briefings and maps. All you need to do is get yourself to Boreen Point, on the shores of Lake Cootharaba - about a 20 minute drive from Noosa via Tewantin, or from Cooroy or Pomona - and we'll do the rest. Some example per person costs are as follows:

  • $55 pp all inclusive, without any water taxi service
  • $115 pp all inclusive, for 2 people, with 1-way water taxi service
  • $140 pp all inclusive, for 4 people, with full 2-way water taxi service
