A great experience and totally worth it. Lots of wildlife to be spotted and fun for the whole family! $260 for a family of 4 for the 11.30 am (1.5h) tour. Follow us on Insta if you'd like to see some photos and videos from the tour @spidervan_adventures



Totally agree with the previous person. the sunset cruise was awesome, plenty of everything and a great commentary. Would recommend.

The Sunset Cruise was absolutely spectacular and exceeded our expectations. Our guide Jess was excellent and we were able to ask her as many questions as we liked. We saw so much wildlife on this cruise including Crocs, Water Buffalo, Wallabies and so much bird life including Brolgas flying over the sunset. If you want to experience something truly special then don't miss this cruise.
