We booked the lunch cruise to Metung, when we got there they advised that due to the number of people going they would put us on a bigger boat, but for the afternoon return we would be going with the afternoon tour, so it would be an extra couple of hours but we would get to see more. We were... More

The captain was great, friendly a family run business so well run and smoothly on time. The boat was clean and nice too and that always is good to know! We stopped off for lunch at a winery and then cruised back to Lakes Entrance in a similar route so that was a bit disappointing but it was a pleasant... More

We went on a lovely cruise and lunch at the Metung Pub. The chap that crewed the cruiser was full of fun and knowledge. Didn't get to see any dolphins but there were plenty of different sea birds etc. The meal at the pub(included in your fare ) was a " good pub meal" and the staff were very helpful.... More

Our family took the 2.5 hour lunch tour to Metung. The crew were great, the hotel and lunch good value and the sights beautiful. Heaps to see - we had a ball: Pelicans, beaches, high rocks, lovely properties to admire, 'old man seal' and dolphins were a terrific sight too. The crew really knew where to go - we had... More

A group of us went on the 70Km cruise over the Australia Day weekend. We had a ball! There could have been a bit more commentary about different bits and pieces but we enjoyed spending time together and watching the birds and dreaming about being able to own one of the houses we went past. We all loved the section... More

We went on the 70km trip (2 1/2 hours) and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Good commentary provided by the Skipper, fabulous views and we experienced a good appreciation of the vastness of the Lakes.

This is the first negative review I have ever posted. We have done cruises up rivers, to reefs, to islands and on lakes around Australia, so were looking forward to a cruise around some of the Gippsland lakes. We booked the 2.5 hour cruise to make the most of the opportunity. The staff were friendly, and the boat was clean... More

This cruise which includes lunch at the Metung Hotel was excellent and highly recommended. The food at the Hotel was very good (2 courses provided as part of the cruise price) and the cruise was interesting. $55 each was very good value. A must if you visit Lakes Entrance.
