Was just us on cruise, but Les was happy to take us out to the dunes. Went sledding down them with a 1 and a 4 year old, both really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

Les picked our family of four up at dung beetle lodge for a cruise along the river and sand sledding. We stopped at the sand dunes and got a couple of instructions on how to sit etc. It was a fantastic experience. I definetly recommend this.

Les picked us up at the Dungbeetle River Lodge. First took us upriver to look at the birds on the riverside and then back all the way to the river mouth and giant dunes. Very relaxing boat trip with a lot see and lots of information by our captain. Climbed the dune for a great view of the surroundings.

My wife and I did the cruise for our anniversary and had a great time. The scenery is amazing, the guide was very knowledgeable of the area. We are definitely going to do it again... Did just the sightseeing cruise but we are planning on sand sledding next time

I went on this cruise with a group of friends . It is a slow moving cruise but very relaxing . We were encouraged to bring our drinks and picnic on board and we all took binoculars to look at the bird life. Our guide pointed out some interesting things along the way and he was very approachable. I believe... More

The Sundays River is one of the prettiest rivers I have been on. Captain Les was a great host with an incredible amount of knowledge about the river and particularly about birds. If you like birding this is a great activity. I was able to photograph a large number of birds. It was a very peaceful and refreshing activity. It... More
