FAQs

How many can sit RoundAboat?

Due to government regulations that keep us nice and safe we can seat 10 people (including little uns).

What are Roundaboats great for?

They are perfect for family and friend catchups, work parties or romance as the sun sets on Noosa River. You stick people in a circle, at some point they are going to have a great time.

What are Roundaboats not so good for?

Roundaboats are perfectly designed for chillin & grillin not motoring up and down the river.

What should I do on arrival?

  1. Arrive at the Roundaboat 15 minutes before.
  2. Park your car at the Marina.
  3. Send your nominated driver and co-driver to the RoundAboats for a full briefing.
  4. All jump on board and away you go.

Do I need a boat licence?

No, but we will need to see a drivers license.

Can children come along?

100%! Children love them and we have special life jackets for under fives.

Is it noisey?

Not at all, our Eco Electric Engines are as quiet as a mouse.

What does the designated driver need?

A person must be over 21 years of age with a full drivers licence and a willingness not to drink alcohol 😉

But I’ve never driven a boat?

No worries, we provide clear instructions so you know what to do and when to do it. If you forget, there are clear details on the Roundaboat as well.

Why do I need a co-driver?

Just in case the driver falls in! Seriously, it’s always good to have a second person listen to the instructions to help the designated driver.

What do we need to bring?

Your smiles, food, music and a camera. Oh, a fully charged mobile phone just in case we need to communicate while you are out there.

What do you provide?

An Esky, serving tray, tongs, paper plates, cups, tissues, plastic cutlery and a bin bag.

Can I play music from my smartphone?

Absolutely!

Where can I go on the RoundAbout?

Roundaboats are perfect for bopping around not for motoring down the river. You will be shown the designated area and anchor spots in the briefing.

Can we drive around for the whole two hours?

Come on, the poor driver needs a break and have some food 😉 As we have Eco-friendly engines we need to keep them charged so a 30 minute bop around, then anchoring up for an hour followed by another 30 minute bop around is perfect for everyone (including the driver)

What if we want to stay out longer?

Not surprising! We are happy to accommodate if there is nobody else booked in after you and we are confident of the battery life at that time. Note; Any late returns will be charged at $50 per 15minutes. It’s important to us that all our clients have a great experience so we need to get the boat ready for next group of fun lovers!

But we really want to go out, can we go?

Sorry, there is no compromise with the weather, we really want you to be safe!

What happens if I return early?

That’s crazy! But if you do, there are no refunds, sorry 🙂

Do you have life jackets?

Sure, we even have life jackets for children.

How clean do we have to return the Roundaboat?

As you would expect really, all the rubbish, food left overs and any other items you brought with you. We provide bin bags so there’s no problem.

Can we go fishing on Roundabout?

No, great for feasting with family and friends, useless as a fishing vessel so no fishing equipment is allowed onboard.

If the weather is bad, what’s Roundaboat policy?

If www.bom.gov.au states severe weather conditions then we will automatically stop the booking. We will inform you immediately and simply reschedule another time or provide a gift voucher that is valid for a 12 month period with no admin fees.

What if it changes on the day?

We check the weather and the winds the day before and if there are any concerns we will inform you as soon as possible. Luckily, Noosa has been blessed by the Sun Gods so not too many of those days.

But we really want to go out, can we go?

Sorry, there is no compromise with the weather, we really want you to be safe!

Can I drink alcohol?

Everyone except the nominated driver. The Water Police regularly patrol the area to ensure safe boating for everybody. Any drug use is strictly prohibited and offenders are automatically reported to the police.

Can I go swimming?

Sure, during the briefing you’ll be told the best places to have a dip.

Can I dive off roundaboat?

No, it’s extremely dangerous to jump or dive off. Hanging onto the umbrella will also damage it forfeiting your bond.

Are pets allowed?

Sorry, but no, your pet would be going in circles!

When do we pay?

When you book. All bookings are taken online so just click Book Now and follow the steps.

Can I change my dates?

Yes, we can change your dates providing we have three or more days notice. Less than three days we do charge a $50 admin fee.

Can you refund my booking?

We have a No-Refund policy. However, we are happy to change the dates within one year or exchange your booking to a gift card.

How long are your gift cards valid for?

Gift cards are valid for one year unless they are part of a promotional deal.

What if my gift voucher runs out?

No problem, for a reactivation fee of $30 we will extend another six months.

What happens in an emergency?

You will be fully informed during the briefing on the correct steps to take in an emergency situation. The roundaboat representative’s phone number will be clearly visible on the vessel.

What if the engine stops?

In the unlikely event the engine stops, throw in the anchor and call the Roundaboat representative immediately.

What about security bond and insurance?

The hirer must leave their credit card details on arrival.  The hirer is ultimately responsible for any damage to the “Roundaboat” for the duration of the hire.
