Saw lots of dolphins. Morning tea included in tour. Crew very friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. The boat is very clean and appeared well maintained and presentable. Was a terrific way to spend a morning. Great value for money.

We saw dolphins! Lots of them. Morning tea was provided. It was basic: tea, coffee or juice and biscuits; but adequate. Given the location: a boat; it was perfect. The boat was comfortable and the crew knowledgeable. Strongly recommend this activity.

The Amaroo is great for a cruise offshore to see lots of dolphins and various seabirds plus a ride on the very new boat. Then back into the lake for some smooth cursing back to the wharf. Dolphins are amazing and staff very knowledgeable and friendly. We're looking forward to whale watching season June/July.

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.

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
