Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a wonderful day out on the water with a large group of friends. We hired both the boats and set sail together. Great boat, great facilities for a bbq. Found a beautiful beach to stop at and have a beachside picnic. Even saw dolphins on the way who were playing at the bow of the boat. Kids had a fun time fishing and jumping in the water for a swim. Beautiful day out!

From beginning to end our day out on the Pickled Pelican was fantastic. Jason and Katherine were very helpful and accommodating. Even though our fishing prowess was non existent, all other aspects of the day made up for it. The boat was comfortable, clean and well maintained. We will definitely be back.

Awesome place to hire! Jason was great with his introduction to the boat and clear with instructions. The boats are the best we have ever hired and so well fitted out, comfortable and clean.

We had five adults, three kids and a baby in a stroller, plenty of room for us all. The kids had a blast swimming when we anchored off the beaches, while we were able to sit in the shade on board and watch.

Highlight for all of us was being able to watch the dolphins up close and have them ride the bow of the boat. We wouldn’t even hesitate to drive up from Sydney just for the day to rent from here in future. Massive thumbs up.

We hired the Pickled Pelican for 3 hours. Just enough time to putt putt up river, drop anchor, BBQ and putt putt back. Facilities were spot on and everyone on board enjoyed it so much. Some of us are locals so saw a bit more of our little bit of paradise and those from away saw how lovely it is.
Well worth every cent and a great idea for a special celebration.

We booked the Pickled Pelican for a 3 hours trip for a family get together. The weather on the morning of the trip was wet, so the trip was delayed 30 minutes while it cleared up and we were given at no extra charge the Saucy Seagull. The Saucy Seagull is a bigger boat fully covered and gave us some protection from the weather.
The boat was clean, well maintained, well appointed, with excellent facilities. The instruction was comprehensive and the proprietors were extremely helpful.
We had a 6 year old and a 3 year old on board, who were supplied with well fitting lifejackets. I
We had a great time and recommend it.

Highly recommend Tea Gardens BBQ Boats! We and the family hired the 12 person boat yesterday for Easter celebrations. Set up was fast and easy. So relaxing boating up the river. BBQ, facilities and boat exceptionally clean. Everyone had so much fun! So much so, we already booked both boats for Christmas!! Our only regret was some family couldn't join us for this fabulous day and next time hiring for 5 hours not just 3 😁

Eleven members of Picnic Point Fishing Club hired the BBQ Boat Saucy Seagull on 27 March 2022. Despite the indifferent weather we had an excellent experience and a very good bag of flathead and bream too. The operators of Tea Gardens BBQ boats were personable and profesional in the extrme. Despite having 11 people paying individualy and using ServiceNSW vouchers to deal with, payment and embarkation were completed without a problem in a manner of minutes. The Saucy Seagull handled eleven of us very comfortably, even with eight of us fishing. She is obviously quite new and has been carefully maintained. The BBQ facility was spotlessly clean and worked without a problem. All necessary BBQ tools were at hand and the burners and plates worked very efficiently. The toilet was up to the same standards. The boat ran perfectly and is quite easy to navigate and the rate of hire is very reasonable. We have hired similar (though less modern) craft in Sydney and paid almost twice as much.

Our group of six hired the Pickled Pelican for 5 hours and had an awesome day on the water. The boat is well appointed with all the facilities you need for a fun day. We were particularly impressed with the BBQ setup and that everything you need was on hand - not a detail missed.

The customer service provided by Jason and Kathrine was next level, from the efficient booking process through to the pre-departure briefing - faultless.

Highly recommend.

The service was excellent, the owners were so friendly and helpful with guidance on where to go and the best spots for fishing and swimming. The Pickled Pelican is decked out so well and has everything you need for a day out with family and friends.
