Beautiful time, highly recommended. David is an excellent captain of this charming 1920’s boat. It’s low slung in the water, and a lovely peaceful glide across the lake. We took the sunset cruise, David provided just the right balance of information and contemplation. The perfect end to a day, highly recommend. Wish we could have done one of the longer cruises.

Really special experience An informative and attentive - yet pleasantly laid-back - cruise. The boat is a dead ringer for The African Queen and quietly glides around this calm waterway. We saw a seal swim past us, also a sea eagle above, as the sun slipped behind the trees. Recommended!

Very Informative Trip This was a very informative couple of hour trip on the Wagonga inlet. Charlie ties the local sights in with his families upbringing on the inlet and has historical photos to dress the stories. The boat is eco friendly being driven by an electric motor.

Bloody Brilliant Best $30 you can spend. Had a great couple of hours on the Wagonga Princess. Charlie (the Captain) has a few tall tales to tell as well as being full of information as you cruise the inlet. Make a booking you won’t regret it

Punkala or bust This has to be one of the most peaceful, informative and reasonably priced trips going. Charlie has a good stock of historical photos to explain each pause in the journey as the silent electric motor smoothly cuts the placid waters of Wagonga. Charlie has a history on these waters going back generations and he is a character (not many left) which makes it all the more enjoyable. Not sure how suitable it would be for young children as you need to pay attention to the talk. Highly recommended.

Peaceful afternoon I am visiting from the uk and this trip was recommended by the managers of Oakleigh Farm Cottages Mystery Bay. Although it was an overcast day that didn’t detract from a very enjoyable and informative 2hr trip. Charlie the skipper has lived here all his life and knows everything about the inlet. A very enjoyable afternoon and very peaceful with the electric motor.

Great way to spend a few hours Would recommend this to all, Charlie is a very nice guy, loves a yarn, and showing off the lake, tells of history, has family photos to share, just go and have a laugh and see the lake.

Electric boat for an excellent cruise Charlie provided a great cruise around the Wagonga Inlet. The boat was originally built in 1905 as a steam-powered vessel. It was later converted to diesel and then Charlie converted it to an electric motor. The joy of the electric motor is no exhaust fumes, perfect whilst pottering around the inlet. Charlie has books of photos that he passes around as he tells the history of the region and the inhabitants. There are plenty of birds around and we were fortunate to see two sea eagles in different areas of the inlet. A great couple of relaxed hours supported by good views and a terrific commentary.
