Take a cruise with us on Lake Burley Griffin, your introduction to Canberra. One of the frequent comments we get from visitors who leave the cruise to last is “we should have done this first”.
In one hour you are able to identify most of the major attractions. A cruise provides you with a clear perspective of the city. Then plan the rest of your visit. It is also a way of avoiding the much criticised “roundabouts”. Sometimes it is hard to tell which gets the most criticism the roundabouts or the politicians. Canberrans have learnt to live with both. It is worth noting that the politicians come here from all over the country. Only four belong to us.
Our skippers present a well researched history of the city. Only occasionally are they stumped by questions. We try to resolve them on the spot but that is not always possible. The instant access to tour guide Google, sometimes means the answer is at hand on one or other of the phones on board.
Fifteen years of service cruising Lake Burley Griffin, we still enjoy sharing our city with our guests. The number of repeat visits from locals and tourist alike is an indication that we are doing something right.
In 2017 we were awarded a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, a pleasant surprise that now provides an incentive to do even better.
Our boats are environmentally responsible, electrically powered and are remarkably quiet. Our larger vessel Gull, was converted from diesel in 2012, licensed for 30 passengers, it does the regular scheduled cruises.
Our other vessel Cygnet has been providing cruises since 2003. It is popular for the more intimate cruises. The licensed capacity is just 10 people so it gets to do special occasions like weddings, and occasionally cruises for just two. It has also proven to be popular for marriage proposals.
