This was a very enjoyable excursion. The commentary from the skipper as we travelled to the winery was very informative - and with humour. The winery experience was fun with banter at the tastings and we enjoyed a lovely lunch. A great time given by...More

Perhaps mid-week cruises are more likely to be combined, because our Thursday lunch cruise to Metung, which would usually be 35 kilometres, included the much longer 70 kilometre cruise around the lakes plus the lunch stop of two hours for $59 each. We left at...More

Boarded the Cruise at Lakes Entrance and enjoyed a leisurely cruise to Metung. Commentary from Captain kept us well informed as to the history of the area. Some returned to Lakes Entrance while others stayed for 2 hours in Metung for Lunch.

My wife and I took the 2 1/2 hour round trip, 2pm to 4:30pm on a Thursday. The reason I gave a poor rating is that the commentary given during the trip was pretty much non existent. Over the two and a half hours we...More

This was delightful, commentary very good, the captain very informative and staff friendly. Able to purchase alcohol/refreshments on board, so as to relax, take in the scenery and just enjoy. Would definitely take on another of their tours..

We took the Metung lunch cruise during a recent visit to Lakes Entrance. The cruise is very laid back with some commentary on the different islands and wildlife in the area. There were a few younger children on our tour that got a little restless...More

Went on the cruise to Metung Hotel . It was a nice day out and the meal at the hotel sufficient for a lunch. My only criticism would be that the stay at Metung was too long(there is nothing at Metung) and that time could...More
