it was great to be able to hear a running commentary about the area. We got close to the edges of the far end near the bridge and hear all about settlement of the area. Got to take hold of the wheel!

Thank Kerryn D

We took the Million Dollar Cruise on the recommendation of someone whom we saw getting off it the previous day. It was a great call. Not only was it inexpensive ( just $39 per person) but it was also very interesting. The Captain for the day, Max, did a brilliant job of telling us all about the sights we were seeing and explaining how boats have to navigate through shallow channels at the far end of the Lake. He also gave everyone the opportunity to have their photo taken wearing the Captain's hat while "steering" the boat. A splendid outing!

Extremely good value for seeing the lake. Whilst some are trying to get high with extreme boats this is a nice sedate trip. We took some great photos and the captain took some great photos for us. The commentary was informative and light hearted. It was nearly 2 hours and goes 3 times a day. What’s not to like

We had a lovely time on the Million Dollar Cruise! We were able to jump up onto the deck and pretend to steer the ship, which was loads of fun!
It was a lovely day, and the commentary was great. Wonderful way to pass an afternoon!
