Highlights

Come and explore the wild waters of The Hawkesbury River and Berowra Creek on this uniquely intimate boat tour. Our custom designed River Cruiser is the perfect way to experience this magnificent country. Get up close and personal with the towering sandstone cliffs, pull into a pristine beach, or hike into the unspoilt bush.

Only 45 minutes from Sydney, this is the perfect way to get out of the city and back in to nature, in comfort and style, without losing much time to travel. Enjoy 3 great National Parks: Marramarra, Popran, and Muogamarra.

Hear the history of the land, from tens of thousands of years of indigenous heritage to a few short centuries of settlement. Drop in a waterski or a wakeboard or a tube or a fishing rod, or just relax in the boat.

We provide wraps to eat in the wild for lunch, or can help arrange a meal to remember at one of the iconic waterfront restaurants. Taste oysters fresh from the River!
