To accompany the great food and atmosphere you'll receive informative commentary from the on board skipper about the region's surrounding highlights including homes to the rich and famous.

Great day
Robert Toovey 2 months ago

Great day, with a lovely buffet of fresh prawns/chicken/ham off the bone and various salads. We took the package that included a bottle of wine as well. the staff were excellent, from the friendly welcome to ensuring the organising around the buffet ensure everyone had plenty to eat. The staff and quality of food made the experience most enjoyable.

We chose this adventure to celebrate a birthday and we weren't disappointed
Jeannie Farry 1 year ago

We chose this adventure to celebrate a birthday and we weren't disappointed. When walking to the meeting point it started to rain and it was quite windy but when we saw the boat we were so excited. We were greeted by friendly staff and the boat was so clean and modern. All the tables had a great view and the food was fantastic. It was so organised allowing one table at a time to approach the buffet so there was no waiting line. The prawns were so fresh straight off the trawler. We tried a few of their signature cocktails which were yummy and there was a variety of wine and beers. The sightseeing was terrific I would definitely do this again and recommend it to family and friends. Thanks for a fabulous arvo. Once on board, we didn't care about the weather.

A great trip with a delicious lunch
Raewynne Sandison 1 year ago

A great trip with a delicious lunch. Plenty of prawns with seconds and thirds available if wanted. Staff were friendly and helpful and as I use a walking stick access to lower deck was fine although the stairs needed to be taken to go to the upstairs deck. It was a beautiful winters day and the cruise was well worth the money.

My partner and I attended this cruise to celebrate our anniversary - and it was perfect
Emily Kedzlie 1 year ago

My partner and I attended this cruise to celebrate our anniversary - and it was perfect! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The food was also amazing, the fresh prawns were perfect and the array of other options were equally good. It was extremely interesting to see all of the river-front homes and learn more about them. We thoroughly enjoyed every part!

We had an amazing time with Wyndham Cruises
Rebecca Harrison 2 years ago

We had an amazing time with Wyndham Cruises, All the staff, Manager and Owners are amazing. The VIP is the best as getting free house drinks. As it was our wedding anniversary we got a free cocktail, beer and cooler. Words can not express how good it is and we are coming back regularly again and again. Can't wait to see you all again
