If you are wanting to experience stunning scenery and wonderful hospitality you really should do this trip. Wayne and Ruth are excellent ambassadors for their home turf. The journey up river is not based around spins and near misses with rocks and improvised thrills, they don't need to try and create a false "wow" because it is already there all around you. We went in winter and because we were adequately dressed the cold was fine, besides in winter the air is so much clearer making the views even better.
Wayne and Ruth are very informative about their area, it is a family business and you will feel like a friend not a Client. We stopped on a riverbank for some home made scones and a cup of tea, the trip felt totally unhurried.
At one moment we were up river surrounded by magnificent peaks, then at the end we we cruised the estuary at the river mouth and watched Ruth pull up the flounder nets containing their dinner for the night.
This is a real deal trip where mother nature puts on the show, highly recommended by me.
