Owner description: Go back in time and board the Chinese Junk which is an altogether different experience - she is a vintage authentic Chinese junk and an extremely comfortable boat. Be lulled on one of their two hour trips and enjoy either a yummy morning tea scenic cruise, a tasty fish & chip lunch cruise or a spectacular sunset cruise. Take in the sights of the picturesque river while listening to the informative commentary, and be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins which are spotted on most trips. With experienced friendly and knowledgeable staff, they are sure to make your river cruise a memorable occasion.

We went out on the fish and Chip or BYO option sunset cruise and we had a wonderful time with Sean (not to be mistaken for the charismatic, handsome, rich Sean Connery as we were informed!!!! lol)
Sean just Knew SOOOO much about the history of Port Macquarie and surrounds ....plus a lot of other things not related also.
To say that he kept us entertained is an understatement.
Thanks Sean for a wonderful trip!
The only thing disappointing is we only saw ONE dolphin.
We highly recommend going on the Junk ship.

Same as other cruises, very uncomfortable boat, not authentic as it on runs on motor, not by sails, sits unlevel in the water

Finished a pleasant Saturday afternoon with a sunset cruise on the Hastings River in a Chinese junk. This 1:5 hr, BYO cruise, up the Hastings, was a friendly and relaxing experience shared with a diverse group of fellow tourists. Highlights include watching the sunset, good commentary by the Captain and a surprise visit from a dolphin. Great value for money.

Tuesday afternoon we popped over to the local fish and chips shop across the road, we brought along our own bottle of wine and we boarded the Chinese Junk for the BYO sunset cruise. It was gorgeous. Sean the skipper was a hoot. For someone who has to deal with tourists all the time he has a great repertoire of info, jokes and comments.

He offered us the use of wine glasses which was much appreciated and my little one needed the toilet as soon as we got on board and Sean was great about it. This is such an affordable and unusual outing. I highly recommend it. We had the perfect sunset on an Autumn day. It was not peak time so it was not crowded.

We had a family outing and as my middle son said " hey Dad I'm going to remember this day for the rest of my life"
I can't thank Shaun enough. He was so good to the adults and my 3 boys. He was very informative and so quick with a 'Dad joke'
The cruise itself was very relaxing and very enjoyable.

Thanks so much Shaun
