5 star ratingExtremely interesting Did the 6 hour cruise and loved every minute of it. The commentary was so interesting and never waned. Walking around the midden site was the highlight of the day and also really enjoyed our lunch onboard. Highly recommended.

5 star ratingGreat day out A most interesting and enjoyable tour. All day, including lunch and morning and afternoon tea. Comfortable boat, very informative guides and fascinating walks over the sand hills to historic and indigenous sites. Good bird life and scenery. Some of the older passengers found the going a bit tough in the sand, particularly on the second and longer walk but don't let that stop you. Overall, an excellent experience, suitable for all age groups.

5 star ratingUnique experience The cruise was very worthwhile. The crew were excellent with a very interesting commentary, experience of a lock, the opportunity to walk across the dunes to the sea, understanding something of the native food sources and view the diversity of plant life. The lunch was a great variety and the crew very efficient at providing both lunch and afternoon tea. It was certainly a thrill to be able to venture into the mouth of the Murray. I would certainly recommend some suitable OHS strips to clearly mark the edge of the step from seats to corridor to catch the eye of passengers.
