We were given a warm and friendly welcome. The boat was clean , the hostess provided a lovely morning tea and seafood lunch. The commentary was informative. A lovely gentle pace. Very relaxing. Watching the Dolphins ride the bow wave was thrilling.

We tried the lunch cruise in August 2018. It was a relaxing, gentle trip, with beautiful scenery. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the commentary was interesting and entertaining. Both lunch and morning tea were good too. Absolutely worth a try.
