Pastel sunset before dinner
We hadn't actually been on the bay except for going to Russell so we were looking forward to going on the evening cruise.
To "ease" people in to the evening we each had to do a turn with a ridiculous pair of glasses and a sailor's hat. Of course, I wasn't going to get caught in those (pic 3) but, 5 minutes later, there I was chatting away in this stupid outfit!
It opened up the conversations that everyone was dying to have and by the time we reached the waterfall it was fairly boisterous.
The crew also explained sea birds and mangroves on the way before we dined around the area of the waterfall.
At 2.5 hours it was about an hour short for us as we felt there were many conversations that had a long way to go and, worst of all, there was no tea or coffee at the end!
At $75 it offer you a different experience and, I would suggest it's the type of thing you'd want to do once but probably not repeat.
Favorite Dish: The entree of mussels and prawns was definitely the highlight.
Comparison: more expensive than average
