This cruise was highly recommended by the lovely lady at Mannum caravan park...I was reluctant at first as had my heart set on cruising on Proud Mary. I was so glad we chose the Jester morning river cruise...so peaceful and relaxing. Enjoyed a wonderful time provided by a lovely couple that were able to relate well with people aboard...they also provided morning tea of fruit, cake, tea/coffee as well as some humour! As we absorbed the visual beauty of the glorious river Murray, we listened to interesting information about the region. A wonderful experience for a mere $28pp. Was even given a recipe for the lovely cake we enjoyed at morning tea 😊

Probably a little overpriced but the family run trip offers heart and soul and local knowledge. Been there done tha tin other similar local ventures so there was really nothing new experientially.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Murray-River cruise with the very hospitable and knowledgeable Helen and Jeff. Their passion for the river, its history and its wildlife and its role as the life-blood of SA was all too evident and proved contagious. Excellent spotters of birds, including chicks and nests. Saw darters and different types of kites as well as the ubiquitous black swans, pelicans, ducks and cormorants. Had a nice afternoon tea, too. Highly recommended.

This was an interesting trip made so by the lovely couple on board. Their knowledge of the river was very good. Can really recommend this trip. We saw the boat was up for sale so hope that makes no difference to the quality of this trip. The fresh fruit and cake was lovley.

The couple who own and run the 'Jester' really know the river well and were very informative and friendly. They have plenty of local knowledge and obviously love the river and care about the environment. Had 'afternoon tea' on the boat which was very good, fresh fruit and fresh home made cake. Well worth a trip and recommend it to all.
