    Fantastic adventure!

    What a fantastic adventure! Harry was so helpful, informative and knowledgeable of the waters with a friendly and welcoming manner. We had the best day and will definitely do this again when next in Cairns except this time will do for the whole day to see more of the estuaries. Thank you Harry!

    Great afternoon out on the water

    For a non-boating family, this was an excellent way to enjoy some time on the water. We explored the inlet and cooked up a BBQ while the kids went fishing. Highly recommended.
