Water Taxi & Scenic Cruises

 

OVERVIEW

Our 8-person launch "Mangrove Jack" is often used by groups, such as families, schools and other special interest parties for scenic cruises, and also to transport people and equipment between points on Lake Cootharaba, Lake Cooroibah and the Noosa River.  We can travel upstream and downstream to Tewantin and the bar at Noosa Heads.

We are always happy to tailor a sight-seeing cruise or water taxi service specifically to suit your requirements.

WATER TAXI TO NOOSA EVERGLADES (KINABA)

We operate an on-demand water taxi service between Boreen Point/Elanda Point and Kinaba.  The trip is popular with those wanting to reach the Upper Noosa River and Kin Kin Creek, for a quick start to a canoeing or kayaking trip in the Noosa Everglades, and/or to camp in any of the dozen or so riverside camping areas on the river.  Price depends on the number of people in your group and whether or not we would be transporting canoes or kayaks with you. These are our current 1-WAY PRICES effective from 12 Feb 2014:
