A fun morning, plenty of dolphins to see. The crew were friendly and knowledgeable, and it was clear that they cared about the dolphins. I'm not a good sea traveller, so took a travacalm tablet as soon as I got on board, but had no problems with seasickness even when the waves became a bit choppy. There was plenty of... More

My wife, toddler and i went on the cruise. 10/10 for the cruise and crew but the gaps on the handrails were too wide to let our little by herself.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our Dolphin cruise this morning. The staff are so friendly, you can really tell that they enjoy their work. It was very informative, well worth going on.

What a fabulous NY eve we had aboard the Amaroo. Lots of nibblies, byo, and lots of friendly faces. The three hour cruise was really amazing and a great way to see in the new Year. The Amaroo parked in a prime position near the barge, so our view of the fireworks was quite spectacular. And the crew, what can... More

What an amazing time we had in the New Year Eves cruise. The weather was good, the lake spectacular and the crew awesome. From Captain Matt as he is affectionately called, his wife Belinda , to Julie and her husband John all ensured that the customers were well look after. Julie is the voice you hear on the Amaroo and... More

A very well worthwhile 3 1/2 hour trip out to sea to watch a mother and calf whale frolicking in the water on their way south. Amaroo was excellent, plenty of places inside and out to watch the whales and the coastline. A good commentary was included, spotlessly clean, and most enjoyable.

The crew of the boat were warm and friendly and we were offered morning tea. What a great way to spend a day! A must do... More
