FAQ's
WHERE DO I MEET MY BOAT?

  • Our Champagne and Oyster tour departs from Northshore Harbour Cafe – 285 Macarthur Avenue, Hamilton
  • This is a return trip and guests will finish where they started

ARE FOOD AND DRINK PROVIDED?

  • Half a dozen oysters and 3 glasses of French sparkling wine.
  • We do not allow BYO

IS THERE PARKING AVAILABLE?

  • If you are driving to meet the boat, we recommend parking at Northshore Harbour, which is easily accessible from north or south of the Brisbane River and just off the Gateway Motorway. There is also plenty of free parking at Northshore.

WILL I GET SEASICK?

  • Moreton Bay is quite a big expanse of water, and on some days it can get rough. Even on calm days, if you are susceptible to seasickness, you may feel unwell. Our advice is that if you are in doubt, you should seek advice on medication from a pharmacist and take that medicine well before you get on the boat, so it has time to work.
  • Also, please let the boat crew know as soon as you feel a little unwell and we can put you in a calmer seat and keep an eye on you. Most people get seasick at some time in their lives, so please don’t be embarrassed about telling us. Please be aware, once out on the bay, we cannot bring you back in at the expense of the rest of the boat.

ARE THERE ANY MEDICAL OR HEALTH RESTRICTIONS?

  • While this is not a thrill ride, our boats travel at speed and the water is sometimes choppy making for a bouncy ride. While the seats are safe and comfortable, the motion could aggravate an existing back condition.
  • Similarly, some activities are strenuous and not suitable to be undertaken by people with heart conditions.
  • We reserve the right to refuse to take you in the interests of your own health and safety.

WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?

  • In order to keep to our schedule, we ask that you are at the pontoon waiting for us at least 15 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time. If we arrive early, we’ll start boarding immediately.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

  • Bring a small backpack or the like as storage space is minimal. You’ll need comfortable clothes, a hat, water bottle sunglasses, swimming attire, flip flops, sunscreen, and a towel. In the winter months, bring something warmer as well as the wind can be quite cold. You’ll also need some cash for onboard purchases.

WILL I GET WET ON THE BOAT?

  • Our boats will cruise at 25-30 knots, which will throw up a bit of spray in most weather conditions. The boats are equipped with clear roll-down blinds all around, which mostly keep them dry. However, boats are boats and there is always a chance you and your stuff will get a splash.
  • We recommend leaving things at home that just cannot get wet.

IS THERE TOILET ACCESS ON THE BOATS?

  • Yes, our boats are equipped with a full private toilet. We also stop at some locations that have larger facilities. Please let the crew know if you need to go while we are underway.

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE EVENT OF RAIN?

  • River to Bay seeks to run all its tours as planned. Our Boats are fully contained and we will do our best to ensure that passengers do not get wet whilst on the boat.
  • We do recommend, however, bringing an umbrella whilst traveling to each venue. If you do not wish to travel due to the weather, we can reschedule you or provide a gift voucher that is valid for up to 3 years.
  • Our bay tours will only be canceled in the event of strong winds and large swells that are deemed unsafe. If a tour is canceled or you decide you would not like to travel that day, we can reschedule you or provide a gift voucher for use at a later date.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE CANCEL?

  • In the event of a canceled tour, we will do our best to reschedule you to a more suitable date. If there is no one immediately available, we will supply a gift voucher that is valid for 3 years.
