Jul 2021 • Family
We have been on eco tours before but we really enjoyed this one. The boat is excellent for the job, the skipper is knowledgeable and entertaining. The service staff are super friendly . The tour is long enough to enjoy without becoming boring.
The lunch was a surprise, a pleasant one. Quality and quantity in abundance. Very happy with the value for money.

Brilliant Cruise
Jul 2021
This was a magnificent trip. We had a perfect day with clear sunny sky although a little wind. However, the Golden Swan is large vessel and we were very comfortable aboard. Although being locals who know the Tweed, we found Captain Dean's narratives very informative and entertaining.
The trip was soooo relaxing. Then we fed the pelicans, sea eagles and gulls. Some magnificent photo ops there.
On the way back, First Mate Monique served us a delicious lunch which we enjoyed inside seated at tables with large windows to watch the world go by. Much better than balancing a plate on your knee.

The Best Day Out in the Tweed
We just got home from spending the most fabulous day with Tweed Eco Cruises. The crew made everyone feel so welcome and the commentary was first class providing all aboard with interesting facts about our beautiful Tweed area. The views are simply spectacular and gives you a deeper appreciation of the place we call home. Lunch was also top notch being a platter of smoked chicken, frittata, cheeses, fresh prawns and fruit. A bar on board is very responsibly priced and the cocktail was soooo good. Our fellow passengers were also a delight with all joining in for a birthday song and cheers.

A relaxing trip
Jun 2021 • Couples
A lovely relaxing and informative river cruise. I would call it a light lunch of mostly appetizer style food which was enough for us to pick at while sipping on a tasty local gin mixer and gazing out at the lovely views. The cheese and bread pieces were very small and seemed a little tight fisted but I realise the cost of running a large cruise boat with 3 staff would be high. We had a very nice time though.

Thank you for your feedback, our catering has varied a bit over COVID time, so we are still striking a balance with that, but we always have extra food on hand, I am sorry the crew did not offer it to you. It is difficult at this time running the cruises with the costings, but no excuse for being light handed on the food, I hope you can come again and have a G&T and bigger lunch with us. Thanks again for taking the time to let us know about your experience.

Highly recommended
Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. Crew were very professional, friendly, nothing seemed an issue even as they multi tasked. Delicious cake for morning tea. Very informative commentary. Lunch was generous, very enjoyable. Will definitely take visitors on this cruise & can’t wait to enjoy their other cruise experiences.
