We went for a cruise on the Lady Brisbane and found the captain very rude and insulting. He even abused boating people as he passed boats on Gold Coast chanels. We were very unimpressed. We would recomend using another cruise company.

This cruise is an excellent way to see the mouth of the Brisbane River, Moreton Bay and coastal areas in a way that is impossible with land transport. The cruise takes approximately 6 hours and you are on the boat for the whole time. Commentary...More

A leisurely way to pass two-and-a-half hours on the river, if, like me, you cannot go 'messing about in boats'. Although there were many more modern, sleek-looking catamaran-type craft plying for trade, this older model of pleasure craft was more appealing by far. The master...More
