The hosts made this sail around the inlets such an enjoyable experience. Lots of interesting facts and information told with lots of humour. My 11 year bold boy got to sail the Lady as did all the other kids on board. We even saw a croc!

This was well worth doing, Lucas was extremely knowledgeable and cracked a few jokes along the way. Very worth doing the cruise and it's at a very affordable price

Really enjoyable river cruise run by a lovely couple. Enjoyed the commentary provided as it gives an insight into the local area & it's history. Only saw 1 crocodile & were hoping to see more but that can't be helped. We recommend this boat trip.

He said no one else booked in & I replied& you were too rude to let us know. He stated I did not confirm & I said I had which he checked.... More

I am very sorry that you seem to be upset. However, you did NOT have a confirmed booking. I have gone through the messages and you texted to enquire which tours were running, but you did NOT call the phone number to make your booking, so we did not have you confirmed as a booking on our manifest.

The lady Douglas is a very calm paddle boat ride around the mangroves, we saw a 4m crocodile and a kite the kids loved having a drive of the boat and the activity sheet. A drink and snacks are provided and there was lots. A good value for money boat tour!

My partner and I went on the sunset cruise. We were the youngest there but thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was great: very informative, well prepared snacks. The scenery was very nice as well as the wildlife. Would highly recommend to any age group!
