Whilst the boat cruise was only about 45 minutes and confined to a relatively small section of the River Torrens, the vista and scenery was great and the commentary insightful. Well done!

A wonderful experience on Popeye

I enjoyed the whole experience even though I was born in Adelaide and have been on Popeye before. I have a Jewish friend who is visiting her family here, and she asked to catch up with me and to take her to a few places of interest. She was delighted with the cruise and soaked in all the information that the Skipper told us about the history of various significant landmarks.
