We hired a couple of double kayaks for an hour. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a beautiful day and paddling around the sound was a relaxing. It was interesting to see the beautiful homes on the canals. Will be doing it again.

This is the best place to hire a boat in Noosa. Didn't need a boat license and had the best time out on the water. Took a couple of stand-up paddle boards with the family on the pontoon, highly recommend!

The staff were incredibly helpful with providing fishing gear, bait, and an esky with our boat rental. Not often do you get such a focus on customer service. Was slow fishing but still a lovely afternoon out.

I've really enjoyed renting my paddle board here on a weekly basis. This location is easy and typically I find parking nearby on the street or parking lot. They are always helpful and the location makes for an easy paddle and great time.
