Fantastic cruise. Perfect day. Wonderful food . Our skipper Lockie and his mate Will were amazing. They even got out of boat and walked it over very shallow water so that we could continue and not cancel rest of cruise. Cant wait to go again.

One of the most fabulous small boat cruises we have done. 6 hours disappeared in no time. The food was fantastic with a local flair and lachlan was a great guide. Great opportunity to help with a lock system if the tides allow.
