    We had a birthday party for our 13 year old with her friends. It was a fun party - teenagers enjoying bbq food and listening to the music while chatting away …. . I was driving the boat, no experience needed. It was a very relaxing ride . But I am glad I brought my elder daughter along so she can look after the BBQ while I focus on driving the boat . The scenery along the river is great, and with ducks / birds in the river, it was actually a very enjoyable ride. The staffs there on the day were extremely helpful. I think I will definitely do that again.

    Our trip was mildly horrific for the kind staff of BBQ Buoys. Their patience and professionalism was tested beyond their wildest dreams (nightmares). First of all, this is an excellent experience. It is good value, the river is beautiful, the Adelaide riverbank is exquisite, the buoys are clean and the service is so professional. A friend and I had always wanted to sail around in one of these, and she kindly bought me the experience as a birthday present. It is very, very important to state that NO ONE was drinking before, after, or during this event. However it emerged that neither one of us was capable of understanding how to steer the device. The poor staff kept towing us back to shore; teaching us again and again; getting the dinghy out to rescue us from reeds... eventually a rather aggressive kayaker sailed into the back of the buoy, and everyone agreed that we would be better off eating our (delightful) food in our buoy, moored by a reed bank. Then in a fit of ill-placed confidence we headed out for open waters. This demonstrated a lack of judgment on my behalf, and eventually the staff came and rescued us again. During this time, every other buoy user seemed to be floating idly past, waving and looking competent. I guess the moral of the story is that even if you can't steer it, the staff will rescue you over and over again with good humour.

    What a blast!! A perfect way to spend time with family or friends. The night booking was perfect as we got to see the river and the banks from a different perspective. The lights reflecting on the river was just beautiful. We did the BBQ, but next time i would just do the picky platter.
