We board the boat in a light rain, but just as we docked at the island the rain started coming down in buckets. The guides had to heard us quickly back on the ship and I was certain everything would be cancelled. But no! They cleared an area on board for the dancer and set up the didgeridoo player in... More

I organised a group trip for a bunch of friends with kids between the ages of 4 and 10 and we all had an amazing time. The dancing and learning about Aboriginal culture was very hands on and authentic. Highly Recommend to Everyone :)

Went on one of these cruises with my school and was such a good day! The staff were so friendly and taught me so much about the Aboriginal history of Sydney. They were able to answer all my questions and help explain things i wasn't sure about. The food on the cruise was also very nice! Highly recommend!

Simply the best way to see Sydney Harbour, and to find out about the culture and history of the most beautiful city in the world, is on the Tribal Warrior. The ride is smooth and the guides are dead-set hilarious. You'll always remember it. And the omeny raised goes back into the community. Good food, very professional staff and always... More

We enjoyed a cruise on Sydney Harbour to catch the Australia Day fireworks. A good time was had by all four of us and the food provided was good. My only concern was the flimsy plastic chairs which were not ideal on a boat.

Have gone on the Mari Nawi twice now for business and both times have been very impressed by the professionalism and authenticity of the staff. The food was great and cultural performance was a gift to be shared and experience. I had a couple pinch me moments watching the sun set over the harbour and it makes a real difference... More

I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend this experience. I went with my two children (ages 4 and 6 years) and they're still talking about it two week's later! Everyone can take something away from this experience and a special connection to Australia's Indigenous culture.

It was a great couple of hours to be immersed in Aboriginal culture and see Clark Island from another perspective. The smoking ceremony arrival, dancing and botanical tour of Clark Island were great!
