Was amazing. Easy to book and also to locate for boarding. The cruise was not only enjoyable but informative as well. The food was plentiful and delicious also the stop over at Tumbulgum was an added bonus. The feeding of the pelicans was hilarious and got some great video moments to treasure. Thank you.
Cruise and commentary were good
Lorri Lambert 2 years ago

Cruise and commentary were good. Morning tea was nice with freshly brewed cuppas. BBQ lunch pretty ordinary, sausages cheap, steak grisly and salads were pretty tasteless. Seafood looked good and feedback from others on that was positive. Overall a pleasant experience.

I was looking forward to this and it didn't let me down
Phillip Williams 3 years ago

I was looking forward to this and it didn't let me down, nice relaxing and very informative cruise, lovely morning tea to start we stopped about 12.00 and got off to stretch our legs while the crew prepared our lunch and what a lunch it was absolutely delicious. On the way back we watched the Pelicans being fed they fly in and land by the boat was a crew member throws pieces of meat to them this also attracts eagles and kites. A good experience my only bugbear was that it is not easy to find if you are driving there.

We all enjoyed our Tweed Valley Cruise found it very relaxing with good commentary an enjoyable morning tea
Barbara 4 years ago

We all enjoyed our Tweed Valley Cruise found it very relaxing with good commentary an enjoyable morning tea, & with the pleasant staff we would thoroughly recommend this cruise to all. Unfortunately, we went on the 1st day of winter & the outward journey was into a southerly breeze which restricted view from the top deck, the main cabin was cozy & warm.

Had a very relaxing cruise up the Tweed River to Tumbulgum
Gaynor 6 years ago

Had a very relaxing cruise up the Tweed River to Tumbulgum, whilst the skipper gave a narrative on the area. A basic morning tea of tea/coffee and cake/biscuits/fresh fruit was served on the way upriver and the boat stopped for about 15 mins to feed the birds- mainly pelicans. We got off the boat in Tumbulgum and wandered around the town for about 50 minutes. On the way back to Tweed Heads we were served a very nice BBQ lunch, which included steak, sausages, prawns, salads and bread.

My friend and I went on the 4.5hr cruise and had the surf and turf lunch
Doreen 7 years ago

My friend and I went on the 4.5hr cruise and had the surf and turf lunch. It was a very pleasant relaxing cruise with beautiful scenery and abundant birdlife. The highlight for us was when the lady fed the birds from the top deck. There were huge numbers of pelicans, gulls, kites and others. It was awesome with all these birds flying around us squabbling for the food. Our meal was nicely presented and very enjoyable. The BBQ was cooked while we were ashore at Tumbulgum for 1 hour with nothing much to do except go to the historic pub for a drink. All in all, it was a great day!

The lunch cruises are highly recommended, the food is delicious. Grab a seat on the top deck as the views of Mt.Warning are spectacular.
