All about

the Buoys!

Our Story

What’s better than enjoying drinks and beautiful food with friends, family or workmates? Doing it with a twist of adventure!

Right in the heart of Adelaide, we’ve rewritten the rules for fun. Our recreational boats give locals and tourists alike the chance to take in the city while floating down the River Torrens, glass of vino in hand.

This company is run by Bianca, Tony & Lidija Shuman. We also operate Popeye River Cruises & Captain Jolleys Paddle Boats along the Torrens River. Safe to say, we love our Karrawirra Parri and that our family run businesses showcase SA  and proudly stock South Australian beers, wines and local produce on board.

On most days, you can catch us around Pinky Flat but we always welcome your call on + 61 (0) 422 145 496 or email [email protected] to chat all things BBQ Buoys, including events, partnerships and more.  

our team

  • Caleb

    Caleb started at BBQ Buoys in 2020 and loves the fun and laid back working environment of BBQ Buoys. Never one to shy away from getting his hands dirty, Caleb’s calm and friendly nature is appreciated by his coworkers. Caleb is a family man and enjoys spending time with his wife and indulging in one of his other loves of you guessed it, BBQing!

  • Nikki

    Nikki joined the team in 2019 and is back again for another season while currently studying her Masters in Business (Finance). Her bright, bubbly personality and enthusiasm are her greatest assets, and whether it be on the dingy taking photos or creating content in the marketing team, you know Nikki is going to give 100%. A true country girl at heart, Nikki loves getting back down to Mt Gambier to see her friends and family, playing netball and her cat Archie.

  • Bianca

    Managing Director

    Bianca knows a good time when she sees it. Fostering an interest in travelling in the great outdoors, mixed with her previous experience as Director at Popeye & Captain Jolleys Paddle Boats and alongside university study of tourism it’s all a great match for BBQ Buoys. You’ll find Bianca dabbling in her interests of horticulture, surfing, or running when she’s not working. With a laid back style, sense of adventure and humour, BBQ Buoys fits perfectly into the life she leads.
