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."

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.

My wife and I, along with 22 other passengers enjoyed a very relaxing cruise on the Hastings River for a Mother's Day lunch cruise. Our Captain, Sean was a down to earth, humorous and knowledgeable character who kept us entertained during the cruise.

We had been recommended to do the junk cruise and were not disappointed. Sean skippered the junk and was very informative and was lots of fun with his dry sense of humour and jokes. The sunset was beautiful on the river. Do not miss this for a nice relaxing evening out.
