We took the 5PM 2-hour cruise and thoroughly enjoyed it. We got to the lake early and took a walk on the lakeside and then queued up for our tour. They were very organized and friendly. Liam was our captain with Greg as our guide and both were a lot of fun. Very engaging with the whole group, making the tour fun and educational at the same time.

My family and I very much enjoyed this cruise. The scenery and the lake itself were stunning. Being introduced to the history of the Indigenous people who once lived and flourished there was amazing. Spirit Island is indeed a special sacred place. Loved Jack's story-telling, humour and ability to engage. Greg was awesome too. Can't forget Jack's sparrow! Would recommend to others.

This cruise was wonderful! My tour guide Sam was very knowledgeable about the lake area and humorous. The captain, Nick (with the beard), made for a very smooth ride. I definitely recommend it!

The lake is such a peaceful beautiful place. Our boat captain Tara and guide Jordan R obviously love their jobs and take their responsibilities of safety, knowledge and being good stewards of the environment very seriously, all while wanting their guests to have fun and feel welcome. I learned a lot and was in awe of all the beauty. Thanks for a wonderful excursion!
