    We were welcomed into the cruise vessel and given our allocated seats and table where we were offered coffee or tea and biscuits and cake. The captain then started to describe the Tweed River and gave us an interesting potted history and informative overview of the section of the river we were cruising on. We were also able to go up to the fully covered top deck and get great views of the embankment and surrounding areas. At one stage, scraps of fresh fish were thrown into the air for various nearby birds to catch, which gave us the opportunity to photograph them close up. We were then offered a delicious cold platter, specifically catered to our personal dietary needs and we were able to buy drinks to complement it. All in all, it was a delightful, relaxing three hours on the water, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

    Thank you Tweed Eco Cruises. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip today. The Captain and Crew excellent. Bird feeding, lunch, beautiful cruise up and down the river. Cold cuts lunch, (prawns glorious) tea, coffee, date loaf. Parking at the jetty free. Check in at the office before boarding. Highly recommend. Take in the local information, sit back, enjoy the beautiful river and scenery.

    Thankyou Eco Cruises. From the booking to the cruise, I found office staff and Captain and the crew to be absolutely fantastic. We were an art class of 24 people, some who have never been on this cruise before and couldn’t give enough accolades to the trip. The morning tea and lunch were fantastic. No birds, but it didn’t worry us. For those who haven’t done this cruise, please book and you’ll never regret it.👍

    Excellent day out. Information was great, especially the birds we saw and were fed. Music great and relaxing. Lunch was a feast and all locally sourced. Even the wine was eco friendly. Staff were wonderful. Could not fault this adventure.

    Nice day cruising the river with great commentary while having morning tea. Getting all the way up to the turnaround seeing and hearing plenty of birds. A well presented lunch and return trip. Well worth doing. Have been to Coolangatta and Tweed Heads and learnt so much new local information. Including other local walkways to explore.
