  • Loved the food, seeing the harbor from the water!!.🎅
  • Nice staff, not much food
  • Absolutely BRILLIANT!!!! Such a priviledge to get up close and personal with these giants of the ocean... Even witnessed complete breaching, spray everywhere!!! Highly recommended...
  • Got in the boat, the guy collected my money without even having any sort of small talk. It was like cash or card, next. Then we started going only to stop two minutes later and be told the boat broke down. Unimpressed
  • Yesterday a family member and I went on your Luncheon Cruise on Newcastle Harbour. The fact that the day coincided with the Supercar Races was an extra bonus. We had a magnificent time, the whole afternoon was perfect. The Skipper was very well versed in his commentary about the city and harbour with just the right amount of information. All the staff were well presented and extremely friendly and helpful ( especially Jack) and the actual lunch was most enjoyable - plenty of good quality food and good variety. I work in the entertainment/hospitality industry so feel qualified to make these observations. Good value for money. Thanks Nova for a great experience.
