Go back in time and board the Chinese Junk which is an altogether different experience - she is a vintage authentic Chinese junk and an extremely comfortable boat. Be lulled on one of their two hour trips and enjoy either a yummy morning tea scenic cruise, a tasty fish & chip lunch cruise or a spectacular sunset cruise. Take in the sights of the picturesque river while listening to the informative commentary, and be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins which are spotted on most trips. With experienced friendly and knowledgeable staff, they are sure to make your river cruise a memorable occasion."

We had a sunset cruise and what a great way to end a day and start a night in Port. If there is a must see it is a sunset over the Hastings. Sean was informative and amusing without being too much of either. A must do.

We did the sunset pre-dinner cruise which was relaxing and pretty. We all loved the boat, it was unique, and comfortable. They provided eskies to keep our drinks cold (BYO) and wine glasses too! Sean was friendly, easy going and provided interesting information about Port Macquarie as we sailed down Hasting River. Nice way to end the day.

This was an amazing cruise, even on a cloudy day,the Junk itself is authentic from Singapore ( i think) )it was so comfortable lounging in the back seat, drinking coffee, and cruising the Hastings river. We saw dolphins and the captain slowed the vessel so we could see them more clearly; Sean's information on the early years of Port Macquarie... More

Best view and protected from direct sun is the comfortable seating in front of the skipper, Ginny. She provided us with a blanket when she heard me say my legs were a bit cold! It was a picture perfect winter's day and we loved our lunch cruise. Three of us ordered yummy grilled fish and chips and the fourth ordered... More

2 mums and 5 kids. We all had a great time. Kids were allowed to take snacks on board. We sat back on the comfy lounge on the calm water and relaxed. Lovely little trip, interesting boat and we even spotted dolphins! It is so reasonably priced too! A very affordable afternoon with 5 children. Felt comfortable having kids on... More

Our sunset cruise in Winter was very comfortable. The Junk has a history and so does Port Macquarie. Both were explained well by our skipper Sean who is also a great entertainer. Fish and chips were delivered on time and hot. Entertaining and enjoyable cruise on the Hastings River - a must for visitors and locals

Thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing morning cruise on the Hastings. Laughed out loud with 3 other couples we had never met before. Why? Sean the skipper! Filled us full with fun, historical, informative info on life in Port Macquarie. Will come again.

The staff were so accommodating.Getting our family on the boat last minute, even calling the skipper back, as they did not think there would be a trip at that time. The Skipper was very knowledgeable of the local area, and very lovely to chat with. It was a very lovely experience to share with the family.
