“A beautiful 2 1/2 hours”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

2 1/2 hours on broad The Free Spirit Cruiser was most enjoyable, we had good weather and the commentary was good and light hearted. Lunch was fresh and tasty, followed by dessert and tea or coffee. Reasonable charges. Would recommend this trip. Thanks

“Excellent commentary”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

My friends and I recently took this cruise to watch dolphins. We were warned that we may not see any. To our delight we had a pod of dolphins frolicking around us and kept us entertained for a long time. We also got to see the Pelicans with their young. The lunch served was simple but of great quality. As for the commentary on the history of Wallis Lake and on its flora and fauna, we simply couldn't find fault. It was full of information, interesting and well put.
Would greatly recommend it.

“Free Spirit Lunch Cruise”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

What a fantastic experience. This 2 1/2 lunch cruise was a perfect way to relax and see Lake Wallace with the added bonus of seeing dolphins twice - Peter asked if anyone needed to get back for the planned time, no one did so he extended the trip to nearly 3 hours! Peter's commentary was very informative but with plenty of humour thrown in. The lunch was delicious. The cruise rounded off an excellent 2 day visit to Forster. Thank you.

Great way to spend 2 1/2 hours ... Peter's commentary was fun, lunch was great (especially the apple pie) with the added bonus of the dolphins swimming next to the boat and beautiful views all around.

“Free Spirit Cruises”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Forster area. We did this cruise yesterday under very windy conditions but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The captain gave a light commentary and was very knowledgeable about the Wallis Lake area. A delicious light lunch, which included dessert as well as coffee and tea was served. A very relaxing afternoon. I have been on many tours and this was one of the better ones, especially when you consider the very reasonable cost of the tour and the level of service given. Keep up the good work Peter and his team. Tineke Insole
