A really gorgeous ride down the river with some very enformative and entertaining commentary along the way! Couldn't be happier with the experience and hope to make it down there again sometime.
It is a wonderful way to explore the Donnelly River and see things that you can only get to by boat. It is an informative trip stopping off at the beach before heading back.
On the way he explained controlled burn bush fires and highlighted the importance of those, especially in national parks and considering the recent fires in Margaret River and Nannup.
Seeing all those shacks near the river mouth did make me think that it must be one of the most relaxing places to spend some time away from it all.
The flies on the beach were relentless, so make sure that you are prepared to deal with them.
Though on first appearances the boat was in need of a makeover, once underway, it made no difference. The highlight was that conditions were right for the boat to be able to pull onto the beach at the mouth where we enjoyed 15 minutes on the wild and windy coast of the Great Southern Ocean. We also saw there a sea eagle motionless on the wind looking for lunch in the lagoon.
A relaxed and informative way to experience this mostly untouched part of the South West.
Owner and Skipper Pete is a truly charming Aussie character with an obvious passion for the protection of this unique river and region.
Trips are not available everyday except when there are enough people to make it worthwhile. Fortunately our days were flexible, or we would have missed this memorable cruise.
Oh, and I feel somewhat bound to mention Pete's famous muffins.
Wonderful afternoon with Steve, very informative and kept us interested for hours!
