"Great relaxing way to have a holiday just fishing, reading, wining & dining and sunbathing on the top deck. Upper reaches of the Noosa River was like stepping back in time." John & Jan - Sayring, New Zealand


"Great home away from home." Brian & June, New Zealand


"Thank you Thank you Thank you!  - on behalf of all 10 of us I would like to say thank you. Our time away on the Sea Venture was fantastic from the minute we met Nicole on the boat for the first time. You managed to set the relaxing pace of our holiday from the minute we boarded. Your friendly attitude and warm welcome set the mood for the entire 8 days.

Now I am a very organised person but soon realised that we only needed to pack half of what we had. I was amazed by the provisions onboard. You certainly have thought of everything and I mean EVERYTHING! Our time was spent in complete relaxation and good quality family time. It was a holiday we will never forget. The scenery was magnificent. The sounds of nature were soothing to the soul. The beautiful sunsets were gorgeous. The fishing was insane.

The houseboat was more than comfortable with plenty of room. By far the best we ourselves have had the pleasure to be aboard.

We are already planning our next holiday in the very near future. We are recommending you very highly to all our family and friends and to anyone who is looking for a holiday that will leave you refreshed and rested.

Once again thank you for the privilege of having us onboard the Sea Venture. Don't change a thing. It is perfect! See you in the near future. Our sincerest gratitude." The Makowski Family


"Thanks a heap! We had a fantastic week and enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets. The houseboat was easy to handle and anchor. We had a great time using the tender to weave up and down the creeks in the mangroves. Well equipped kitchen. Great weather, great boat, great time. We feel very much restored. Excellently equipped and maintained boat. Thanks very much." Wayne & Edwards Crew (New Zealand)


"We had a fabulous Christmas holiday with our two teenage sons aboard the Cruisecat. It was a perfect size for the 4 of us and we felt really special cruising up and down the river. The amenities were complete and so all we really needed to bring was food. As we came from Canberra this made it really easy. One tip: we took more clothes than we needed. Just bring bathers and a sarong, 'cause that's what you'll live in'. Fishing, swimming and just relaxing as a family is easy aboard one of these vessels. Even though it was Christmas, we were made to feel that we could call on Noosa Leisuretime Houseboats for help whenever we needed, which for us was very reassuring as we hadn't operated a boat this size before - but it was actually pretty effortless. We'd recommed this holiday choice for anyone wanting to spend time on the beautiful Noosa River in a way that provides an element of luxury as well." Simon & Ariel (Canberra) ~ See us on The Great Sth East ~


"We, Nick & Cheryl, have enjoyed your boat (the Cruisecat), we called the "Pussycat" - it kept us "purring"......... We had the most wonderful time on it and together with yourselves (your service), we had the best wedding ever! Thank you "sincerely" from the bottom of our hearts! We will see you again and recommend you both to our friends and families. " Nick & Cheryl (Brisbane) 14th December 2008 on the year of our "Lord".


"This was a spectacular way to spend my husband's 40th birthday. Luxurious, comfortable and relaxing. We couldn't have asked for a better experience from start to finish. Our family's smiles said it all. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We'll definately be back!" Adrian & Gill (Brisbane)


"The Cruisecat is a brilliant boat to holiday in - 'awesome boat, awesome weather, awesome holiday' - we'll be back for more crabs & fish! "

Mark & Anita (Auckland), Phil & Libby (Newcastle)


"We had such a lovely time on your beautiful Sea Venture and we have told just about everyone we know! We will be back next year for sure. We had the best birthday ever on your houseboat, and everyone was so lovely. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. It was just a wonderful experience. See you in the New Year for sure! " Terry & Justine (Eumundi)


"Our stay on the Pacific Blue Cruisecat 30 for 8-days & nights was blessed with warm, sunny days and cool peaceful nights, making this combination a perfect place for our honeymoon on the Noosa River. Wildlife in abundance must be mentioned; from soaring Sea Eagles to a water loving family of kangaroos! Fish and crab dinners from your own personal catch, magnificent cloud formations, magestic sunsets with all the colours of the rainbow plus stars galore, all make memorial memories of a 'do all' or 'do nothing' time spent " Stephen & Laneta (Brisbane)


"The Cruisecat is fantastic, it has all theamenities plus more for a terrific fishing trip. The Noosa River is a beautiful part of the Sunshine Coast. Nicole - thank you for this experience we will definately be back. Cheers!" Julian & Karla (Townsville)

"A great weekend - thanks! The Cruisecat is a lovely clean well equipped vessel " John & Dee (Kangaroo Point)


"Had a wonderful time, the weather was fantastic and the Cruisecat made us feel very special. Have told all our friends and they can't wait for us to book again. Looking forward to it. Thanks " Rob & Debbie (Battery Hill)


"Thank You - very very very much! It was an absolutely magical honeymoon. Cruising up and down the river on Leisuretime's Cruisecat was amazing - couldn't have been better! " Penny & Ben (Brisbane)


"Thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful, relaxing - fish a plenty - sojourn! Spacious, comfortable, all amenities available. Recommend to all- we will return! " Tom & Judy (Doonan)


"The Sea Venture is a lovely water craft/home on the water. The layout and furniture make for a very comfortable stay. Nicole & Paul were friendly and helpful and their welcome got us off to a great weekend. The operators manual was clear and comprehensive & safety directions were detailed. The craft was easy to use and was obviously well maintained. The quiet, relaxing time up river was just the thing for busy people. Our fishermen loved having their lines in continuosly." Thanks Barbara (Brisbane)


"Thank you for a wonderful opportunity to experience the Noosa River in a unique way. The "Sea Venture" was the perfect boat design for our family, with 2-couples the 2 double bedrooms allowed privacy and the beds were very comfortable. The covered area upstairs was great, the expanse allowed safety from the sun and was great for BBQ lunches. This is our second houseboat holiday and won't be the last as our boys have said. We will be contacting you again in the near future!"Thanks Peter & Kathy


"Thank you for our fantastic time aboard your vessel. My friends & I thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing time. It was just what the Dr. ordered & what a way to celebrate my 30th! With cocktails at sunset, our toga party, BBQs and the swimming, crabbing & fishing. This is definately an experience we will be doing again. We also would like to thank you for your ongoing friendliness, you truely made us feel very welcome." Megan, Bec, Bretty & Merv (Brisbane)


"Great kitchen facilities - you have thought of everything even down to the panadol! Good selection of DVD's - lounge is comfy and functional. Have had a brilliant weekend - the Cruisecat is a wonderful boat for relaxing - we can thoroughly recommend it. Thank you! ." Mark & Lindsay (Cotton Tree)


"A nice roomy boat & comfortable. An absolutely beautiful way to spend a few days relaxing. Excellent service & lovley people to deal with. Very pleasant indeed. Thank you muchly." Marilyn (Cooloola Cove)


"Thanks for the great lessons on how to handle the "Cruisecat", thank you for your warm, very friendly 'welcome aboard' and thank you for trusting us 2 single girls with your lovely boat. It was truely a dream come true for us to have these lovely 3-days on the Noosa River. After both of us having served about 13-years as missionary nurse midwives in a small country in West Africa - this was a special treat for us. It was a wonderful 50th birthday surprise for my mate Robyn - something we both will always remember and maybe we'll do it again for my 50th (hint to Robyn) in a few years time! We'd highly recommend it - if you love fishing; avoiding shops, appreciate God's creation and if you're looking for something different to give to someone as a special gift."God Bless from Debbie & Robyn Nov-07


"We were made to feel welcome and prepared us for our trip so that we could relax and leave behind the "rat race". The family had a great time aboard the Cruisecat; fishing, swimming and cruising the river. We will be back. (The cherry on top - Bok's winning the World Cup.) Thanks.... "The Oosthuizens. Oct-07


"We had a more than wonderful experience in the beautiful nature of the river. Perfect boat, everything fitted. Thanks for having the opportunity to do this." Marianne (Brisbane) and Rene (Holland)


"Just Fabulous! One week of sheer "leisure-time"! The weather was great! The scenery beautiful! The fishing was excellent! We found a number of great fishing spots - but those we can't share as we intend to be back. Nicole & her team helped enhance our truely wonderful holiday & houseboat experience". Thanks, Gary, Susan & Warwick, Brisbane


"What a superb vessel your houseboat "Sea Venture" is. I compliment you on its spotless presentation, and quality appointments. Your thorough briefing was even to an "old sea salt like myself", well presented so we understood all workings of the houseboat to give us a trouble free holiday. From the linen to the galley, it was far better than we have ever had on other houseboats and this is so important. Lighting and entertainment systems were also top quality. Thank you for making our week so enjoyable. We will be rebooking for another relaxed holiday. PS We have never caught so many fish. WOW! Richard Magnus, Brisbane


"We spent three weeks in Queensland from Tweed Heads to Cape Tribulation going on numerous toursity things - the highlight for us was the three peaceful days aboard the Cruisecat. Shopped out, jaded from travel, this was just so refreshing and peaceful. From our first contact with you via email we could not have wished for anything more - the vessel was immaculate, the briefing just so professional. We also enjoyed your humour. Thanks Rory for lending me the fishing gear. It was great to sit back with a medicinal gin and catch fish. Faye, Bob, Dawne, Titirangi, Auckland, New Zealand


"Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how great our time on the Cruisecat was. The weather was perfect, the boat was in immaculate condition and the river could not have been cleaner or more friendly. As first time charterers I would also like to thank you, Ben and Rory for your patience and understanding prior to our departure. Your clear instructions and easy to understand manuals filled us with confidence and ensured a worry free four days for us. The adventure itself was both exciting and relaxing and I would recommend it to anyone - couple or family. Look forward to seeing you again before the year is out." Cassie (Brisbane)


"From the moment we arrived at the Marina and saw the Cruisecat we knew we were in for a great time. A beautifully appointed boat with everything that you need and more (the champagne on arrival for Alan's birthday was a special touch). The introduction to the boat was first class and was supported by clear reference documentation (which was reassuring for a novice!). The time spent on the river was fantastic, wonderful scenery and abundant wildlife, it felt like we'd been away for weeks. I have told everyone I know that this is a 'must do' holiday, can't fault it. Thanks for everything, we'll be back! Judy & Alan (Brisbane)


"Our trip was an unbelievable experience. We stayed for Christmas on the Cruisecat and enjoyed the privacy and the romantic hours on the boat. We had a great time on the boat, which is equipped with all the things you need for an absolutely comfortable stay. Most of all we enjoyed the dusk when the river was calm and we were sitting on the deck and drinking a glass of wine. But it wasn't only the boat which was great; Nicole, Ben and Paul who announced us on the Cruisecat are very nice and friendly people who give the boat-trip a personal touch. All the time you have a good feeling that they are there for you even though they are not with you on the boat. We often think about the wonderful days on the Cruisecat and maybe we'll come back to Noosa and do it again." Heinz & Karin (Austria)

"Boy, what a holiday! 7 days without computers and fax machines, and limited mobile coverage..... it was a much-needed break! The boat was very well kitted out with all the extras you tend to forget to bring. The river is a beautifully relaxing place just to unwind and forget about the stresses of everyday working life. The eagles were the highlight, coming in so close to the boat you could almost touch them. Swimming everyday was also a special treat. The service and friendliness offered by the Leisuretime team was outstanding. Definitely a holiday to repeat - we'll be back! The Cabot Family, December 2006
