Wonderful experience. Saw a different perspective of St George from the Balonne. Captain Brett gave us a great insight in to the water workings of St George. Thanks.

Thank you from SRC. The beautiful Balonne river is St George. It does offer a beautiful perspective too. The St George community is very fortunate.

Decided to do a river cruise while in St George & my nephew picked the Sunset Cruise (2hrs). Definitely worth it for a relaxing afternoon & the sunset was perfect. Brett was great.

A fantastic, relaxing cruise on the Ballone River. Brett was a wealth of knowledge. He couldn't control the weather but the offer of blankets to help cut down the wind chill was a nice touch. BYO drinks and food.
