What a delightful way to spend the morning! The commentary was very informative, and the morning tea was great. So many birds were spotted, as we cruised up the beautiful Brunswick River. Would thoroughly recommend this tour, and I'm about to re-book to take my young grand-daughters during the upcoming school holidays.

Loved this tour. Amazing environment. Lots of Sea Eagles, Brahminy Kites, White Faced Herons, Sting Rays and more. Beautiful rain forests. Our skipper and tour guide were knowledgeable and informative and kept us interested for the whole time. Lovely coffee and seriously good cake and brownies. Thank you for a great morning. A huge plus - on a hot humid day there was a lovely cooling breeze.

This is a lovely local experience. The sunset boat cruise up the Brunswick River starts at 5pm and ends at 7pm, you go up river to Mullumbimby. The boat is called M.V Jasmine, it is a cute little ferry type boat, slow and quiet, it cruises up the Brunswick river departing from the marina, and along the way you see electric blue kingfishers, local eagles, stingray, lots of fish, patches of Gondwana rainforest. The captain is a local who has been here for over 30 years and has a degree in environmental science, so he shares both his enthusiasm for and knowledge of the natural surroundings.

They serve drinks and snacks, the snacks are surprisingly healthy (grape vine leaves / dolmades, hummus, rice cakes, crudite carrot and celery, nuts, olive bread, and of course potato chips, various cheeses). It is a very pleasant, relaxed way to see the river and learn about the local nature.

We enjoyed this tour so much, we went in October for my husband's birthday, then returned a few weeks later with our 4yo, knowing she would also enjoy it. It was lovely both times. I would happily take out of town friends and family on this boat cruise again.

Everyone involved in the business is professional, courteous, competent. The guided quality of the tour is done perfectly - not extraneous talking, everything you hear is interesting, and there's plenty of breathing space between the talking to just enjoy the scenery. It's a well thought out and well executed experience and a special local Brunswick Heads experience.

I thoroughly enjoyed my morning trip yesterday along the Brunswick River. The river, the scenery and the wildlife were inspiring, and I remarked that the trip was "good for the soul". Both Simon and Rob were great guides, and provided a lot of interesting historical and wildlife information. Oh yes, the cakes and coffee were also great!

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip up the river with enthusiastic and well informed commentary from our guides. Lots of birdlife and beautiful estuarine flora and an understanding of the challenges the region has faced with logging etc.
On top of that an great tapas was provided (as good as any ploughman's lunch we've had) and drinks. I went the extra mile with a gin cocktail with finger lime, mint and a spicy ginger beer, all using local products. The picture is of an eagle taking flight.

My daughter gave me a Morning Cruise voucher for my 80th Birthday, so my wife and I booked on this In January . Being Travel Agents we have toured the World, and found this to be very well done , with local expertise on the river and its flora and fauna. The knowledgeable guys made it extremely interesting and we were able to see many of the birds, fish etc that we would certainly never have been able to see independently. Extremely good coffee and cakes were also served. Well worth the couple of hours or so on this lovely river.

Every thing was perfect on the cruise. Simon's narrative was interesting, accurate, and entertaining. The scenery was stunning, both at the estuary and up river. These generous hosts provided a delicious morning tea that was brought up to us on the top deck. Very highly recommended!
