A terrific way to spend an hour _ lazily cruising around lake Burley Griffen with an accompanying commentary that has both high levels of information and comedy.

The peaceful electric boat departs from a spot near to the International Flag display and circumnavigates Lake Burley Griffin giving a wonderful perspective on the history and development of our nation's capital.

Couldn't get better value for $20 (15 for seniors). Relaxing, informative and amusing interaction with the captain. We take a lake cruise on every visit to Canberra and find this one the best.

Great entertainment from the boat captain makes this trip both fun and educational. An hour around the lake puts everything into historical (and sometimes hysterical) perspective.

Great one hour cruise taking in the sights of Canberra. The captain had great knowledge about Canberra and its sights and answered all our questions. We were the only 2 aboard and had a lovely private tour.
