The trip on the Gordon river was excellent and the opportunity to stop and walk through the native rain forest was very enjoyable and we learnt about the history of the early... More

We took the Gordon River cuise during our stay in Strahan and it was excellent. The boat was purpose-built for this, which is very good. We had mid-priced seats, so we had windows -- but you could see from the middle seats, and you could go out on deck anyway (if the weather permits, which it did for us). We... More

A wonderful day out from start to finish! So well looked after by the lovely staff, fantastic food and drinks all day - starting with buck's fizz as soon as soon as you board (on the premium deck anyway), very spacious and comfortable seating. We cruised the river, went briefly out into the ocean, did a rain forest walk, went... More

This was an unforgettable day cruise. The flora and fauna was breath taking and the history of the areas we visited fascinating and unique to Tasmania. The staff onboard were very knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. Although the cruise was a little on the expensive side, it was well worth it.

Pristine nature at it's best with a fabulous tour of the Gordon River world heritage area. This tour encompasses the history of Strahan both indigenous and from convict times onwards. It links the people of the west coast and their value on the best that nature has to offer. Lunch was good and well managed and good quality.

We really enjoyed this cruise on a partly sunny day that ended with the most magnificent river reflections(glorious photo opportunities) .Although we saw very little wildlife,the crew gave a very informative commentary, the complimentary lunch was very nice, and the guided tour over the old convict settlement at Sarah Island was extremely interesting and well presented.

Highly recommended. the views, the staff, the food, the views were all first class. The presentation at the island was a bit over the top. The guide also appears in "The Ship That Never Was" and in that she is excellent.

Spent a great few hours on this activity. Granted the weather was fantastic - we went further out to sea than they usually do but without that it's still a great experience. The buffet on board was really good, the staff were friendly and efficient. The stops - Sarah Island - and the forest walk - were really good and... More
