Thanks to Lorraine and Simon for a great morning tea cruise. Very informative, great birdlife and a delicous morning tea. We'll be back to do the kayaking!

Thanks for the great review. As you pointed out we do also have local Madura tea not just great coffee and cakes. We had excellent bird sightings on your cruise which was fantastic as we are doing a bird monitoring survey.

“A wonderful way to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013 via mobile

Whilst staying in Byron Bay I luckily saw reviews for Byron Bay Cruises & Kayaks on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a go. So glad I did. It was enjoyable and informative and relaxing. Simon was extremely knowledgeable about local flora and fauna and also really good company so he makes an excellent guide. I've only kayaked once before but this was well within my abilities. Simon really makes sure you are OK and are enjoying the trip. Well worth the money. I went alone but this would be great for groups of any size as well as kids.

The Brunswick River cruise is a brilliant evening out from start to finish. Fantastic commentary from Simon & Gavin, beautiful scenery and a bargain to boot. An absolute must-do.

“Fun & educational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2013 via mobile

We went on the sunset cruise with our two boys, aged 12 & 8, and all really enjoyed it. As it was an overcast evening, we were the only passengers but the bad weather didn't really deter from the experience.
Simon was very knowledgeable about the river and the local flora and fauna and was able to answer lots of questions.
The boys had a turn at steering the boat which was a highlight.
We travel regularly to Brunswick Heads and this is the first time we've done a river cruise. We'd highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn a bit more about the area.
