My partner and I went on the sunset cruise. We were the youngest there but thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was great: very informative, well prepared snacks. The scenery was very nice as well as the wildlife. Would highly recommend to any age group!

This is a peaceful trip up the tidal fed inlet. No danger or excitement, just a pleasant tour taking in the flora and fauna, wonderfully set up by an introductory drink.

Would highly recommend this cruise. The staff were friendly and engaging with ample viewing spots. The complimentary drink on arrival hit the spot and the on board bar hit more spots. Whilst we didnt see any crocs the 1.5 hours on the water under shade with a slight breeze was most enjoyable.

A relaxing way to while away one and a half hours in the morning. Greeted with a cold glass of champagne! That's what you do when on holidays! The water was tranquil with a gentle breeze to take the sting out of the heat. The views of the water, township and mountains were beautiful. Saw an amazing bird of prey... More
