A cruise around Lake Wallis with entertaining commentary, and an informal lunch - salad and warm apple pie. Highlight was tracking a pod of dolphins for about half an hour, Their antics were entertaining and enlightening. A pleasant way to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary.

Lovely relaxed cruise on Wallis Lakes. The day was hot, cooled by breezes off the lake. Plenty of dolphins, pelicans and black swans. With a light fresh lunch, a most enjoyable time.

A 3 1/2 hour cruise on Wallis Lake. The pilot gave us a running commentary and was able to assist with any questions we had. An excellent lunch was included in the price and the boat had excellent viewing decks inside and out.
