Captain Proud Paddle Boat Cruises.
There are few rivers in the world that are as rich with history and heritage than our own mighty Murray River in South Australia. First discovered by European settlers Hamilton H. Hume and William H. Hovell in 1824, it played a vital role in establishing some of the first colonies in this sun burnt landscape, enabling paddle steamers to carry wool, wheat and other staples to sustain a population along its rugged route.
Today, the Murray is a must see for history buffs and those who want to experience a cosy cruise aboard a real side paddle wheeler and you will be on your way with Captain Proud Paddle Boat. Grab an equally passionate partner and you will be in for a three hour river tour and two course lunch aboard the Captain Proud which is only powered by the paddle wheels on either side of the boat.
You will feel the history as you snake along the Murray River and expert commentary from your River Murray Master at the helm sprinkling you with anecdotes. You will love cruising along this natural border that separates New South Wales and Victoria and which just happens to be the worlds 16th longest river at 2,530km.
The environmental beauty of the Murray will leap out at you from the river banks which are home to a range of unique flora and fauna including Black Swans and Red-Rumped Parrots, as well as koalas, Western Grey Kangaroos and more. You will enjoy a magical and memorable time aboard the Captain Proud which features an air-conditioned dining room and licensed bar where you can grab a drink and toast your good fortune on these fabled waters.
