After picking up a brochure from the Tourist Information Centre about Peels Cruises we decided to do the afternoon cruise on the Stormbird. We arrived at the jetty about 20 minutes before the departure time of 3:15 that was advertised on the brochure, only to discover that the actual departure time was an hour earlier at 2pm. The office was... More

We had a great informative cruise through the Lakes. Stopped at the Metung Hotel, had a good meal. Great value for money. Definitely a must. Drinks on board the boat were cold as well.

We did the lunch cruise departing Lakes Entrance at 1200 cruising up the magnificent lakes of Gippsland to lunch at Metung Hotel then picked up the Ferry to go onto Paynesville & return to Lakes Entrance. Wasn't over crowded, just nice with magnificent views either side wherever you looked. The meal was not over the top at Metung Hotel but... More

We had an enjoyable day cruising around the Lake District. The skipper was informative and made our day enjoyable. Lunch at the hotel was included in the price. The food was really good.

As the title says, we did the Thursday hotel deal. Be aware though it gives you 2 hours in Metung. So that leaves only 2 hours on the water. After a bit of mucking around, it is actually only a 30 min boat ride with some attractions. The boat was quick and reasonably comfy. It was nice of the captain... More

We booked on the lunch time cruise. We left Lakes Entrance at 11.45 and returned at 4pm. We were taken to the heads so we could see the seals and were lucky to also see the dolphins. Next stop was Metung where we disembarked for 2 hours to have lunch at the pub and a walk of the town and... More

We did the afternoon cruise, 70kms including going around Raymond Island. The boat Thunderbird is a good sized vessel (149 persons) and has a bar and snack bar on board. The crew are very helpful and there is an excellent commentary. This cruise is recommended and on our next visit we will be doing the lunch cruise to Metung.

Thank Mike H
