Private Charters

Relax and let our skippers show you the Noosa River on a private charter onboard the only boats on the Noosa River with drop down barge front perfect for sandbank weddings, picnics or special events or just cruising around in the shade. 

Day Tripper is the queen of the Pelican fleet and provides a cool and casual party boat for cruising the Noosa River.

With its huge flat shaded front deck, Day Tripper is perfect for gentle cocktail cruises, family or work celebrations and big beach picnics for groups of 20 – 49. A heavy steel hull and big stereo system will have you rocking but not rolling as we show you the incredible Noosa River.

Day Dreamer joined the Pelican fleet in December 2023 as the little sister to Day Tripper. Day Dreamer has a capacity of 25 passengers, drop down front for beach landings and large open foredeck and a toilet. She provides a perfect vessel for family groups, private picnics, weddings transfers and special ceremonies with family and friends aboard. 

Day Tripper and Day Dreamer are available as skippered charters on a very flexible basis so your event matches your goals and your budget. We can provide catered options or let you self-cater everything. With their front-loading ramps, our charter boats are ideal for beach landings, BBQ’s and picnics.

We can also provide skippers for our smaller pontoon boats.
