Very good commentary during the cruise…the only feedback is that there were no signs to say we were in the right place. Was very confusing.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Hi Imogen, thank you for joining us, we are happy you enjoyed your cruise. As this is a public pontoon , we are not allowed to put up signs. Hopefully, we will soon be back at our home at Southbank.

Was a lovely afternoon...

Was a lovely afternoon boatride, nice and leisurely (so no seasickness like I expected)! The crew was very efficient at their jobs and friendly too. The bar was fully stocked. The background music was soft, not in competition with the commentary which was informative and witty too. Those we picked up after their lunch said they enjoyed it immensely and the food was wonderful. Give it a go, you won't be sorry!

Great value for money cruise

Tour guide was very knowledgeable on the history of Brisbane and sights along the river. It was windy and a bit rainy the day we went and the covered downstairs room was very comfortable, like a mini cafe with licensed bar at the end.

Hi Lorinda, thanks for taking the time to review us. I wish we could control the weather, but we certainly try to keep everyone as comfortable as possible. cheers

Relaxing cruise

Relaxing cruise on the brisbane river with informative commentary. Scones were yummy but dissapointed only instant coffee.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Hi there Anne and thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback we really appreciate it. Anyone that has lined up behind 3 or 4 people knows how long it takes to get a Barista coffee and unfortunately you would probably have finished the cruise before we could make coffee for 50 odd patrons. Also the morning tea is complimentry...you don't get this on the other cruises. Thanks again for your feedback. Best regards
