Fishermans Friend Cruise

Start Your Day with a Taste of the Tweed

Embark on a 90-minute adventure through the stunning Terranora Lakes aboard our eco-explorer vessel. Enjoy a delicious morning tea featuring local sweet treats and hot drinks as you take in the breathtaking views of the lakes and oyster farms. Our experienced guide will lead you past bustling trawlers and into the heart of the Tweed Heads fishing Fleet. Witness the skilled techniques of local fisherman as they work the lakes for their market supply. Learn about the history and ecology of the region, from fishing techniques to the fascinating wildlife that call this area home. Keep your binoculars handy! You'll spot a variety of birds including pelicans, kites, ospreys and white-bellied sea-eagles. Catch a glimpse of wading birds gathering their morning meal and fruit bats hanging out on their island.
