I cannot think of a better way to spend New Years Day than cruising along the smooth, tranquil waters of the Noosa River in the gorgeous refurbished M.V. Catalina on its maiden voyage.
On January 1st, 2016 we were lucky enough to be aboard a five hour New Years Day boat cruise party with 90 other revellers. Spoiled with perfect weather, incredible tunes, delicious canapés, champagne and cocktails, the cruise was topped off with a magical sunset to welcome in the new year.
Highlights in the food department consisted of an abundance of fresh oysters, shots of green gazpacho with crab, mini Po' boy seafood buns and scallops served on rice spoons to name a few. All canapes were locally sourced and provided by the amazing team at Kitchen Shed.
Summer tunes courtesy of local sunshine coast DJs Jad & The Ladyboy, Tim Fuchs and Jawgoh perfectly complemented the sun and sea breeze, playing back to back all afternoon.
The Noosa River is situated in Australia's idyllic South East Queensland on the Sunshine Coast. Picture pristine conditions and absolute tranquility. The cruise takes you all the way up to Lake Cooroibah, the gateway to the Everglades, a popular tourist attraction only 20km from Noosa Main Beach. It disembarks at the Sheraton resort, Hastings street.
The M.V. Catalina is a luxury two storey boat, accommodating around 160 passengers across two beautifully fitted out decks. The upper deck boasts sun lounges & umbrellas, bar and seating facing out to the river and the lower deck with another bar and DJ.
What's more is the Catalina offers a special weekly Sunday afternoon three hour cruise for $15, perfect for holiday makers to experience brilliant service. Departing at 4pm, watch the sunset with a live DJs set from Tim Fuchs and experience an ultimate summer afternoon. Alternatively you can book for weddings, birthdays and any special event!
