A pleasant day on the Port River checking out the dolphins, historical landmarks and enjoying a great lunch. Ideal for groups and special events. The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Great to see a well managed experience.

Group of ten went on a very enjoyable 1.5 hour cruise. Saw some dolphins which always provides some excitement. Commentary was very informative but did not intrude on the peaceful cruise. Well worth the modest cost of twelve dollars per person. Nice Covid safe processes.

Popped on board to fill a couple of hours as it was really cheap ($12 per adult) and enjoyed most of the cruise. Only saw one dolphin close up right at the start and a small pod playing about 100m from the boat on the return journey but it was a lovely day. Saw plenty of pelicans, which was nice. Very windy but refreshing. Main issue was when we were disembarking. People crammed together like sardines riding to get off. No social distancing despite the signs and no staff assisting or monitoring the mass of people.

$9 for 1 year old when it's $12 for an adult is taking the Mick, especially when you try and blame it on covid-19 restrictions. More of a tour of the industrial port than dolphins. Commentary poor and pointless as almost impossible to hear and understand.

Today (8/08/2020) we went for a trip to see dolphins and had a lunch. The boat went to the mouth o f the river with very few visible dolphins on the way. Food was bad. Not prepared at the galley (as advertised) but defrosted from some external supplier. None of us could finish it off! The crew tried they best. They were friendly and helpful. Congratulations. But the food spoiled the whole experience. I can understand that no one can guarantee seeing wild animals but, perhaps extending the trip by say half an hour or so could increase the chances of seeing the dolphins? Knowing that the company should definitely put more effort in improving the quality of food. Because this they can control completely. This would definitely improve the overall impresion of the trip. As it is now however; I will recommend avoiding this cruise until the quality of the food is drastically improved.
