Our river tour options include a 90 minute guided tour on ‘Zingara’, which can take up to 11 people. On this tour you’ll head north towards Cappoquin and experience the fantastic Blackwater River at a comfortable and relaxing pace. One highlight is the stunning view of Dromana House perched high up above the river on a rocky outcrop. Dromana House and Gardens has 800 years of family history and the unique architectural feature of a Hindu-Gothic Gate Lodge at Dromana Bridge which crosses the Finisk, a tributary of the Blackwater. Our tour guides have fantastic local knowledge ensuring that your time on the Blackwater is authentic and majestic.
Our Zingara tours can be booked online here or by contacting us.
For a little more adventure, we also offer a self-drive option which gives you the opportunity to skipper one of our small engine boats yourself. We have two Whaly 435’s, each taking 4 adults or a family of 5. After a short induction, you can set out on the Blackwater at you own leisure, following behind one of our experienced skippers. This option allows you the freedom to explore the river both north or south from Villierstown.
