Pleasant meander along the Torrens and along memory lane, for Popeye trips when I was a child (70 years ago). I was accompanied by nieces and nephews, great-nieces and a great nephew, and they had a lovely time. Plenty of room to move on board, very friendly crew, lovely weather, lots of birds, a realy good morning thanks.

Very pleasant short cruise on the River Torrens. The captain kept up a very informative and interesting conversation during the cruise loved it

Had a great night on the Goal Tour. It was very interesting and we had some Paranormal Activity. Great way to spend a night in Adelaide

Great little trip up (and down) the Torrens. Sam was great, lots of information and good communication with the guests.

Good fun tour guide, tidy boat, welcomed aboard by nice deckhand!
