Awsome trip on the boat, wonderful scenery & friendly staff.Lunch was amazing & plentiful,cocktails were great too.Definitely advise people to do this trip

Amazing!!! Thoroughly enjoyed it... The staff were fabulous and lunch was delicious. I highly recommend this buffet lunch and cruise.

服務親切,食物一般,吃飽上甲板曬曬太陽滿舒服的。 適合停留天數短,一次可以解決午餐和遊覽,如果比較不趕時間,其實選擇便宜的船或是morning tea風景也都一樣。

Friendly ✔️ Value for money ✔️ Delicious and plentiful ✔️ Scenic ✔️ Relaxing✔️
