Time well spent.

As a grandmother who took two teenagers on the the cruise with me I can say that all ages are catered for. We all agreed that we had the best time. We continued to talk about the experience and the information given for the rest of the day. Time well spent. Thank you.

Great family activity!

This river cruise is a fun and informative way to see different areas of the GC. We took our 3 kids aged 5, 6 and 8. They loved sitting up on the top deck watching all the boasts, jetskis and fish! Highly recommend. Take sunscreen and a hat.

Great value and very friendly service

A very nice morning spent. Captain Pete and Georgia are very friendly and Pete enjoyed joking around with the passengers. Unfortunately, it was raining when we went and so we probably didn't get the full experience. We spent some time on the roof which I'd imagine would be nice in the sun. Pete let people have a go at sitting in his seat on the return ride and steering the boat. You can have as many cups of tea and coffee as you like. Morning tea was fruitcake, scotch finger biscuits and lamingtons - basic but good. There were cocktails and mocktails available too. All in all relaxing and informative - a nice way to see the river. system.

Relaxing tour

Enjoyed the morning tour Captain Pete and his crew made sure we were well versed on the homes along the river with the added bonus of seeing a dolphin which capped off a great morning.
