We enquired about doing a cruise for my father in laws 95th birthday approx 2months in advance. We we politely told it would cost $25 per person for the 1.5 hr cruise. We had the option to pay an extra $500 if we chose to extend the cruise by an hour to a total of 2.5 hrs. We chose to do this as we were promised the boat exclusively for our group of 17 upon asking. A deposit was paid and a second call made to check on some fine details. The morning of the cruise we received a call to ask if we still wanted the booking as they hadn't heard from us. We confirmed that we did but weren't aware that we had to make contact for a 3rd time. We were also asked that seeing as the COVID rules had relaxed where a max of 18 were allowed when booking and were now up to 32, could they bring random members of the public on board. We stated that at the time of booking we asked for and was promised exclusive use of the boat. We were then told that we had to pay an extra $50 for the privilege which we did. I conveyed my disappointment that it would have been nice to receive a call earlier proposing this situation rather than dealing with it 3 hours before the cruise. I was told smartly " Well that COVID isnt it"!
Upon arrival we went to pay the balance of the trip as agreed. Upon doing so we were rudely told that we couldn't have the 2.5hr cruise as promised because they couldn't take their full 32 passengers anymore. There was no price cut. We were screwed over very rudely by the staff.
The cruise however was lovely. The on board staff were very friendly and informative. We were encouraged to BYO lunch and buy drinks from their bar service. Access to the top deck of the boat is limited to 3 at a time with a good monitoring system. The day was lovely and the father in law enjoyed his special trip . Just a pity the booking process ruined the day.

One of the best places to get River Murray history. Staff love to talk about old time river travel and how time have changed to the present.

Lovely morning cruise
Jul. 2020 • Family
We went on the Thursday morning cruise on the PW Mayflower whilst holidaying in Mannum. We were lucky enough to be the only four guests on the cruise, and we had beautiful weather. The cruise was even better than expected. Plenty to see, lots of birds, went down to the cliffs and had a cup of tea. Pretty good way to spend the morning! Many thanks to skippers Phillip and Kevin, and Di for looking after us.

A fascinating glimpse into our past

This museum is well worth a visit. There is something for everyone and the kids will love the interactive programs. We only had an hour to visit as the Museum closes at 4 pm, we recommend allowing at least 1.5 hours.

I could not believe the raw History of this small town, the hardships endured of the era, the amazing engineering and intestinal Australian fortitude that went to build and make this Country great, I was amazed at what was achieved without Computers at the time, it all happened with hard yakka,.

Mannum to Morgan Cruise
Nov. 2019
The cruise was the ultimate slow travel. Plodding along at a steady 9kmh the Marion took us along the magnificent Murray for 3 days and 2 nights. Heaps of bird life and great scenery in some of the less frequented stretches of the River. The crew was excellent and our fellow passengers were top.
