“Can do better!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

The Boat house is defenitely like any other boat house run by the Government.Rusty boats and disinterested service staff ruin the experience of boating through idyllic settings. The quality and service standards can definitely be improved!

“Need to ramp up operations to match demand”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Like- Can not think of anything. Dislike- Long waiting time for buying tickets and then longer wait time to get in to the boat

“Average Boat Ride, Decent Beach”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Went to Chunnambar for a simple boat ride with the kids, a couple of things to note:
If you come with your car, you need to pay for the car, camera before entering...
then there are a few choices you can choose from, but the day we went we could only choose the long Beach ride, which allows you a 2 hr (max) time on the beach...
the Rides are average, nothing much to talk about... the beach is also average, as we hadnt planned on the beach trip hadnt been prepared for it...the beach doesnt have anything except for Male / Female Shower Rooms/Toilets, so if you plan wade into the water come prepared... on our return the eatery is avg
