calm, relaxed tour of a beautiful river, guided by a skipper with knowledge of the local nature
Nov 2020
This is a lovely local experience. The sunset boat cruise up the Brunswick River starts at 5pm and ends at 7pm, you go up river to Mullumbimby. The boat is called M.V Jasmine, it is a cute little ferry type boat, slow and quiet, it cruises up the Brunswick river departing from the marina, and along the way you see electric blue kingfishers, local eagles, stingray, lots of fish, patches of Gondwana rainforest. The captain is a local who has been here for over 30 years and has a degree in environmental science, so he shares both his enthusiasm for and knowledge of the natural surroundings.

They serve drinks and snacks, the snacks are surprisingly healthy (grape vine leaves / dolmades, hummus, rice cakes, crudite carrot and celery, nuts, olive bread, and of course potato chips, various cheeses). It is a very pleasant, relaxed way to see the river and learn about the local nature.

We enjoyed this tour so much, we went in October for my husband's birthday, then returned a few weeks later with our 4yo, knowing she would also enjoy it. It was lovely both times. I would happily take out of town friends and family on this boat cruise again.

Everyone involved in the business is professional, courteous, competent. The guided quality of the tour is done perfectly - not extraneous talking, everything you hear is interesting, and there's plenty of breathing space between the talking to just enjoy the scenery. It's a well thought out and well executed experience and a special local Brunswick Heads experience.

Perfect river trip
Aug 2020
I thoroughly enjoyed my morning trip yesterday along the Brunswick River. The river, the scenery and the wildlife were inspiring, and I remarked that the trip was "good for the soul". Both Simon and Rob were great guides, and provided a lot of interesting historical and wildlife information. Oh yes, the cakes and coffee were also great!

Evening ecocruise
Feb 2020 • Couples
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip up the river with enthusiastic and well informed commentary from our guides. Lots of birdlife and beautiful estuarine flora and an understanding of the challenges the region has faced with logging etc.
On top of that an great tapas was provided (as good as any ploughman's lunch we've had) and drinks. I went the extra mile with a gin cocktail with finger lime, mint and a spicy ginger beer, all using local products. The picture is of an eagle taking flight.

Excellent small cruise
Jan 2020
My daughter gave me a Morning Cruise voucher for my 80th Birthday, so my wife and I booked on this In January . Being Travel Agents we have toured the World, and found this to be very well done , with local expertise on the river and its flora and fauna. The knowledgeable guys made it extremely interesting and we were able to see many of the birds, fish etc that we would certainly never have been able to see independently. Extremely good coffee and cakes were also served. Well worth the couple of hours or so on this lovely river.

Every thing was perfect on the cruise. Simon's narrative was interesting, accurate, and entertaining. The scenery was stunning, both at the estuary and up river. These generous hosts provided a delicious morning tea that was brought up to us on the top deck. Very highly recommended!

Rainforest Eco Cruise on 25th November 2019

The tour operaters are fantastic. They are easy to communicate with prior to the tour and then on the day they are very friendly and encouraging of everyone, adults and children.
Any questions we asked were welcomed and honestly answered.
Time was given to enjoy the birdlife in the area as well as point out things of interest.
This is well worth doing if you are looking for a relaxing enjoyable 2 hours on the river. If I am in the area I would do this again.
You could not meet a couple of nicer guys than we had today.

November cruise
We had a family of 6 attend the 10am morning river cruise up the Brunswick River.

We had two children aged 4 and 5 and were well looked after by the crew Simon and Rob. The kids had toys to place with once they were distracted by the sights.

Simon lead the tour with lots of information about the history of the river as well as the flaura and fauna.

They served a delicious morning tea with a selection of cakes as well as coffee and tea brewed on board.

We were lucky enough to have the boat all to ourself as no one else had booked on the day.

I'd definitely recommend this cruise for all ages including young families.
