Travelling from the North on the Motorway (from Brisbane etc) take the South Tweed Heads exit, not the Tweed Heads exit off the Pacific Highway, turn first right into Shallow Bay Drive (KFC on corner) and follow the signs to the Golf Club Car Parking area, travel through the Car Park and go behind the large Club House on your left right down to the river, where you will see the jetty and there is plenty of parking down there.
Travelling from Coolangatta, head south past Tweed Centro Shopping Centre in Tweed Heads keep going over the river, you will pass Tweed City Shopping Centre on your left in South Tweed, take Soorley Street after the Shopping Centre and follow this road to the Golf Club Car Parking area, travel through the Golf Club Car Park and go behind the large Club House on your left right down to the river, where you will see the jetty and there is plenty of parking down there.
Travelling from the South (Byron Bay, Ballina, Muwillumbah etc) take the Tweed Heads exit, go through round about and stay in the right hand lane and take the first right into Shallow Bay Drive as above.
Prepare for sea sickness (Travelcalm or Kwells originals are recommended) bring a jacket: wear sensible shoes: bring as little baggage as possible: charge up your camera/video: bring a spare sd card and battery: wear a hat: be early rather than late – you miss the boat or get lost there is no refund - so be there 1/2 hour prior to departure time: book your trip early in your holiday in case of bad weather: we are a non smoking vessel: there are no credit card or Eftpos facilities on the boat so bring cash or prepay for your tickets either on line or give us a ring to do this over the phone.
We operate on Queensland time
