I went on this cruise with my hubby & our ‘boat mad’ toddler. Was a really good time frame excursion to go on with an almost 3 yr old. Was neat having lots of space to wander around in, even with the Covid restrictions they made it very comfortable. There was a lot of space to move around on the boat & my son kept going up to the top deck to wave at the captain & eventually the captain kindly invited us in to look at everything. Was definitely the highlight of the trip for him! The scenery was absolutely magical.

This Cruise was amazing and fun, great commentary through out, a bit of rough seas but the captain knew what he was doing. Staff are really welcoming, Helpful and kind. Thank you.

Was a fantastic experience. Felt safe and had lots of fun. Knowledgeable about the river & surrounds too. Thanks for one of our highlights of our holiday

We took our children, age 3 and 6, out for a 25 minute trip. They had a blast. It was just the right amount of time for kids their age.

Awesome, the staff was friendly and specially when they found out we had a special birthday boy they made it special
