The detour to see the dolphins, together with the bow of the cruiser nudging the waterfall on our return journey turned an interesting trip into a spectacular one.
Although the company can claim no credit for the marvelous scenery, they can take every credit for the positive attitude of all of the staff, their enthusiasm for sharing this experience with us, and enabling us to get the best out of this experience. The organisation was exceptional
We have passed on our experiences to many other travellers who we have met since.
The crew look after your every need and are friendly and knowledgeable about the area and all the spectacular features you will observe. I thoroughly recommend this tour.
I will remember the silent moment halfway for a very long time to come!
