Captain Jack gives a fascinating account of the history of the area with a touch of humour and introduces the pelicans and other wild birds he interacts with over the course of the trip around Oyster Harbour and the Kalgan River. An entertaining and relaxing experience.

Wonderful location, very calm and relaxing

We shared the boat with only two other couples, so very easy to move around the Queen even as we needed to wear a mask. This is our second cruise, last time was over 10 years ago and it was just as good the second time. It was the original Captain Kalgan the first time and this time his son has taken over and is very interesting. He also told us about some other interesting places to visit whilst we are in Albany.

Thank you Captain Jack for a brilliant morning. I went away with much more than some pretty pictures; the commentary was both informative and entertaining. Perch the pelican is something special. Despite the weather, I had a great time and am already recommending this cruise to others.

Great River Cruise with dancing Pelicans
Cindy_H

Best river cruise we've ever had. Four hours well spent. Captain Jack entertained us all throughout with poetry and historic stories of the Albany district. Wonderful to see all the wildlife along the way and especially the dancing pelicans. The mussels and damper morning tea top off this lovely experience. Money well spent - loved it.

The Kalgan Queen was rated number one within two years of the 21 yeas we have been Cruising. Since that time we have made it our goal in life to maintain the highest standards possible. Reviews like yours let us as a family business know it’s all worth while.

Must do while in Albany

We had seven weeks in Western Australia from UK and went on several boat trips. This was the most expensive one but also the best. It was well worth it. Jack was an excellent host. Not sure you need the trip to the kangaroos but I think format may be changing anyway. My only regret was that we were only in Albany for a short time, otherwise I would have gone on the trip again.

Sorry to have taken so long to reply to your kind review. We have been closed for nearly six months and reopened yesterday. It was a day we will never forget. Our animal friends were there to welcome us back as well. Life is good again.
