The cruise along the river is beautiful and relaxing. The captain is very knowledgeable about the river and the history around the place. We are lucky to see the old swing bridge in operation. Definitely worth a visit.

Very relaxing trip up the river with a very informative commentary by Alan covering local fauna and history of the area plus information on the swing bridge. Certainly worth more than the asking price, you will not be disappointed.
