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.

Had a lovely cruise over to Metung and back. Lunch was included in the cruise price which was great. Very informative cruise. Found out lots of things didn't know about the lakes area and system. Highly recommend.

This company has operated since 1920 and the grandson of the original operator is the managing director. There are several options for travelling around the Gippsland lakes and we took the 2 and a half hour afternoon trip. It is picturesque with a little commentary and you can buy drinks and snacks on board, but fairly limited. Apart from some... More

Excellent cruise around the lakes, including the beautiful homes of Paynesville. Adequate commentary, friendly barman and clean and comfortable boat. Recommended.

We took the longer cruise hoping that we would get the most out of the experience.

What little commentary that was provided did nothing but list the names of the places we were passing.... More

we took the sunday 1 and a half hour 11am tour. It turns out this was just a ferry service for people having lunch in metung. At $30 a person it was very poor value. No commentary and no wildlife spotted.
