Thanks for an affordable chance to travel the Murray River on a paddle boat. The meal was plentiful. The staff were friendly. It was great that people could get a photo steering the vessel. The commentary was helpful and interesting.

The weather was perfect, food was plentiful and delicious, just like mum would cook at home, especially the apple crumble. The crew were very friendly and gave an interesting commentary throughout the trip of the points of interest. Would definitely recommend. Thank you

3 hour lunch cruise from Murray Bridge toward Mannum. Eat and drink while viewing the cliffs, wetlands and bird life was most enjoyable and relaxing. Basic but tasty meal and served by entertaining boat staff. Lovely way to spend an afternoon at a reasonable price
