‘We had a relaxing cruise around this beautiful lake and even as a long term resident of Canberra I learnt a few facts I had never known! The highlight was when my grandson’s binoculars bag blew off the deck and the crew turned the boat around to retrieve it, without being asked! Fabulous friendly service. Visitors and hosts will enjoy this interesting hour to see Canberra from a different perspective. Highly recommended.’
