We did the 2.5hr afternoon cruise on the Thunderbird and not only was this trip enjoyable and informative it was also wheelchair accessible. There was a snack bar on board and we enjoyed a glass of wine on the way.

We arrived at the jetty about 20 minutes before the departure time of 3:15 that was advertised on the brochure, only to discover that the actual departure time was an hour earlier at 2pm. The office was... More

We did the lunch cruise departing Lakes Entrance at 1200 cruising up the magnificent lakes of Gippsland to lunch at Metung Hotel then picked up the Ferry to go onto Paynesville & return to Lakes Entrance. Wasn't over crowded, just nice with magnificent views either side wherever you looked. The meal was not over the top at Metung Hotel but... More
