“FRIENDLY INFORMATIVE AND FACINATING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Nothing to dislike on the 3 hour informal cruise around Port Hacking and the Royal national park- just as the title says
Excellent value-even includes help yourself coffee and biscuits.
Look forward to our next visit to repeat the pleasure!

“Champagne Breakfast Cruise - must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Bliss on the water - sunshine, exploring the waterways around Cronulla & the national park whilst catching up with friends on a Sunday morning and enjoying the absolute 'feast' these guys call breakfast - not to mention the bubbles! Grab your friends and pass on the cafe - this is a must do!

“what a treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Our visiting English friends arranged a Sunday morning trip and what a surprise it was.

Glorious views of the Port Hacking, interesting commentary and a relaxed start to a beautiful day.
Highly recommended for locals or visitors.

Breakfast is large and good and the changing views of the National Park and grand houses are very special.

Well worth a try.

“Port Hacking Scenic 3 Hour Cruise Departing at 10.30am”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

On the occasion of our annual visit, our Sydney friends from Gymea suggested that we go on this cruise. We had never heard of either Port Hacking or the Hacking River before and were completely amazed to find out via the Ferry Company's advertising brochure that Bass and Flinders discovered Port Hacking in the Tom Thumb11, a small 8ft long rowing boat, in 1796! The trip itself was superb as we cruised by magnificent waterfront properties and meandered past various bays and inlets and saw breathtaking views of the Royal National Park. The brochure referred to there being a "full" commentary. Unfortunately, the only sour note was that the commentary was "loud and overfull!" Apart from that, we thoroughly recommend this cruise as it is a historic and scenic, largely undiscovered region, which should be subject to greater promotion, in our opinion.

“Live music cruise is the best value day out on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

This company really knows how to give you what you want. Every different type of cruise I have taken has been spot on. I don't know how they can be so generous for the little they charge! The staff are all friendly, enthusiastic and couldn't try harder to give great service and make everyone happy. The food is top notch and so plentiful. All of it was fresh and tasty and it got to the point that we were stuffed, we just couldn't eat anymore. It was the perfect finger food menu for when you drink, lots of tasty but filling finger food. The highlight was of course the cruising -it is a great comfortable boat, easy to get around, lots of toilets, all the comforts. I just never get sick of being out on the water and have someone else do the driving. We merrily enjoyed a wine while listening to the great band playing all our favourites. It truly was the best day out I have had in a long time. Everyone had a blast. I can't wait for the next one. If you want a superb day out for a reasonable price, you really cannot go past these guys. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
