Wow! what a wonderful way to while away a couple of hours!

Our group had a really fab time when we recently hired a BBQ Bouy. The booking process was an ease, the Bouys easy to locate on our picturesque River Torrens and our drinks were packed and icy cold on arrival. We quickly settled onto the Bouy which was surprisingly spacious and comfortable, even room to stretch your legs out which is always a bonus!

Cruising up and down the River, listening to your own music (Bluetooth speaker supplied) which was an added bonus, made for a very pleasant & enjoyable experience.

Its always great to be a tourist in your own town and this one is highly recommended for groups of all ages. The team were helpful and even dropped by in their dinghy to check we were all ok and even brought extra drinks! Now that's service, and with a smile too I might add!

so don't delay, just get organised and book one! You won't regret it !!

We had a birthday party for our 13 year old with her friends. It was a fun party - teenagers enjoying bbq food and listening to the music while chatting away …. . I was driving the boat, no experience needed. It was a very relaxing ride . But I am glad I brought my elder daughter along so she can look after the BBQ while I focus on driving the boat . The scenery along the river is great, and with ducks / birds in the river, it was actually a very enjoyable ride. The staffs there on the day were extremely helpful. I think I will definitely do that again.

We had a great afternoon with BBQ Buoys catering for our group of 38. Everyone had a great afternoon, the buoys were very clean and well catered for and when we needed to swap out some of the drinks from our drink package mid way through our booking, that was no problem. So much fun, laughter and food. Definately be back with our families

We did the 2 hour BBQ cruise with 3 other couples, total of 8 of us. Very comfortable sitting in the boat and easy with the bbq in the middle. Our drinks were pre ordered and all organized for when we arrived. Staff were friendly and quickly ran through all the details for steering, safety etc. We all really enjoyed the cruise. A great way to do something different and get out about and enjoy beautiful Adelaide. Would highly recommend to friends to do.

Thanks again to the BBQ Buoys team for their outstanding hospitality. This was our second time with BBQ Buoys and just as good as the first. What an amazing way to catch up with friends and and enjoy our beautiful city with a good old Aussie Barbie. Well looked after!

Although our group all live in Adelaide this was a delightfully different way to see the city from the river. It was a beautiful balmy evening, with lots of birdlife and lovely views from the weir to the Uni footbridge. It was fun to sit in the round and share some great food (we brought ours but you can order platters) and wine while puttering along. All agreed that 2 hours was perfect. Highly recommend.

We booked the Mates on Bouys package and weren't disappointed!

There were 10 of us on a goergous Sudnay afternoon, we had the bbq cooking, the music on the supplied bluetooth speaker (plenty loud enough) and the drinks flowing.

Couldn't recommend this enough. They run you through everything you need to know and give you a crash course in how to drive the boat if your not sure.

They then load the boat with all the supplies you purchased and you're on you way.

Threre is a place you can pull in for a toilet break, and if you do run out of drinks, they will run more out to you.

Give it a go!

Thanks BBQ Buoys. We had so much fun. Non stop laughter. The booking was effortless including adding beverages at a later date. Oola (sp) was absolutley lovely and very informative, considering I'd never handled a boat before. We all said we would book in again. Thanks again

We celebrated our office xmas party on BBQ Buoys, we all had the time of our life. Everything about BBQ Buoys is amazing. Andrea is wonderful, she catered for all our requirements and made the booking process easy and smooth. They really go above and beyond to ensure that everything is perfect. The boats were set up with all our drinks for each boat and lots of water was supplied. We had an antipasto platter for each boat, which was big and it was great that we could also bring our own snacks. Driving the boat was a little tricky to get use to, but once you get the hang of its smooth sailing. We brought our own music, the set up of the boat is great, what a perfect way to spend the day, cruising along the river torrens, singing to music, drinking and eating. The views were amazing. We had so much fun and everyone couldnt stop talking about how good it was.

I loved it that much that I ended up booking BBQ Buoys for new years with my friends and my 5 year old son which was safe What a way to spend new years on the boat watching the fireworks, talk about great location. Everyone said it was the best new years ever. This time we booked the bbq grill and cooked a bbq on the boat, that was great just make sure not sit in the direction the wind is blowing so you dont get smoked out from the BBQ!

The only problem is after 8pm the nearest public toilets are closed, so make sure you go to the toilet before.

Highly recommend BBQ Buoys, I will be book it again for a fun day out.

Thanks to Andrea and her husband for the best hospitality.
