Owner description: Go back in time and board the Chinese Junk which is an altogether different experience - she is a vintage authentic Chinese junk and an extremely comfortable boat. Be lulled on one of their two hour trips and enjoy either a yummy morning tea scenic cruise, a tasty fish & chip lunch cruise or a spectacular sunset cruise. Take in the sights of the picturesque river while listening to the informative commentary, and be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins which are spotted on most trips. With experienced friendly and knowledgeable staff, they are sure to make your river cruise a memorable occasion."

We went on the pre-dinner cruise on a sunny Saturday afternoon with 3 kids age 7-10 years. We brought our own food and a couple of beers and some wine. This was essential to keeping the kids happy and as long as they were fed they were happy while my wife and I relaxed back on the comfy couches. We... More

We did the sunset fish & chip trip, 4th Nov 2014 - thoroughly enjoyed the trip, food was good and a big thank you to the bubbly, multi-skilled Jodie who made the day. What a great personality she has. Jim & Carole

Lots of beautiful properties on the way. Then came the Fish & Chips, very tasty & fresh. Brian was informative and funny. The only complaint would be that... More

I had a good time--on my phone. I went on the $30-something tour of the river so I guess I couldn't have expected much. Take note of how the other, positive reviews mention "relaxing" a lot. That's because it'll send you to sleep.

An awesome two hour water tour of Port Macquarie took in sights I didn't know existed in this ever growing and amazingly beautiful town. Smooth waters, dolphins, scenic canals and waterways made...

Went on the fish and chip lunch tour. The waters in hastings are very calm, so it is very relaxed and enjoyable. The Captain was very nice and willing to answer any questions and provided a commentary. Any wildllife such as dolphins, sea eagle, cormorants etc, will be pointed out to you. You will also see some very nice waterfront... More
