My Company, Yucan2 Personal Development, ran a Workshop yesterday & utilised this wonderful cruise to begin our day! Everyone that joined us on this magical day thoroughly enjoyed the professionalism offered by the Crew to make it a pleasant start to our day ! We loved the commentary & also some enjoyed the experience to skipper the boat also ! We of course enjoyed the beautiful views & the weather added to this magical experience! The morning tea offered was amazing & the red carpet entrance was perfect for what we were wanting to achieve for this day which was seeing just what is possible by investing in yourself & working on yourself with rituals each day & how easy it is to change a state so you can manifest just what you want in your life ! Thank you ? to everyone involved in helping make this day so memorable for so many in our group ! My cup is now full xx We look forward to joining you all many times again x Tam Richie

Myself, Mother and Husband went on the 12.15pm cruise on Sunday 24/02/19. We boarded the boat and it wasn't long before our high hopes were gone. The tables and chairs are set up in an awkward configuration that forced you to sit in an uncomfortable...More

Friendly staff focussed on passenger safety at all times. Cheese and crackers 4/10. As locals, we didn't agree with all the commentary. Thought some of it was not up to date.
We enjoyed our river cruise very much. It is always interesting to see a place from the water and this tour provides a glimpse into these spectacular waterfront places... The crew were great and the commentary informative and fun.
Sun, spectacular properties, a nice cold drink, what better way to spend an afternoon. Throw in 4 dolphins and it is a perfect! Highly recommend this leisurely trip on the water.
Great boat ride with good information commentary and really awesome crew, great time onboard the lovely vessel with abit of humour which is good to see. Drinks were ok but need to work on the nibbles guys.
