Very good cruise on the Gordon River ex Strahan. Cruise included morning tea and a sumptuous buffet lunch. Crew were all very friendly and helpful. We stopped at Heritage Landing where we had a very informative Boardwalk while the tour guide explained the native flora and vegetation. After lunch we stopped at the historical Sarah Island, which had been used as a convict settlement. Here the tour guide was again very competent and informative about the island's history. Highly recommended.
Excellent experience with a lot of variety - Hell's Gates, the Gordon River walk and Sarah Island tour. Very efficient operators. Great lunch. Comfortable vessel, lots of space because about one-third full.
Fantastic definitely the best thing that we did in Tasmania!! Certainly worth every cent to upgrade to the Captains deck.
This was a wonderful experience - the day produced both blue and grey skies and helped us to see and appreciate the differing moods of the magical Gordon River. The staff were great and helped to make the day. We enjoyed the "off" excursions - the cool dampness of the sub temperate forest and learning about Sarah Island. We are indeed thankful that we joined this tour. Thank you.
Despite wild and woolly weather, the day was amazing. The best bit was the guided tour of Sarah Island - can't remember the name of the lady who took the tour, but she was interesting, knowledgeable and made the content fun and interesting. Would HIGHLY recommend the tour!
This cruise was excellent. It was true to description, had great food and amazing scenery. Reception was very nice, they recognised Viator voucher and promptly supplied our tickets. The price through Viator was also better than going straight to the supplier. Would highly recommend!
Thought it was fantastic, one of the best things we did whilst in Tasmania
Although we had rain, we came away from this experience very satisfied.(Umbrellas were available and ponchos could be purchased) The scenery was beautiful and the reflections were awesome! We had window recliners, but all seating was good (I tested them!) The staff were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. They were very efficient in their handling of multiple roles. We enjoyed the informative commentary and guided walks . The food was fresh and tasty (loads of smoked Tasmanian salmon- Yum!). We travelled in the second half of September, during school holidays but the boat was not at full capacity. Travelling in peak summer season may not be as relaxing .
We upgraded our seats to the upper deck and it was well worth the additional $$, we really enjoyed the cruise,commentary, food and the relaxing atmosphere.
A great day. The cruise was relaxing and well organised. The crew on board and the shore staff were very helpful and friendly. The boat has all the comforts and the buffet lunch was more than expected. The highlight was the tour of Sarah Island by Dave who was entertaining but very imformative. All in all highly recommended.
This was a fabulous cruise. The staff were very friendly and helpful, service was excellent and the two tours were informative, interesting and engaging. We would strongly recommend this cruise to anyone visiting Tasmania. The whole experience was topped off by the amazing scenery.
Well worth the trip. Staff were very friendly and very informative. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment. It was an amazing experience
This was a wonderful cruise. Everything was explained to us before the boat left promptly at 8:30am. As we cruised we were told about the history of the area as well as the areas uses in today's world. It was great and not hard to listen to. The on board lunch ws scrumptious and plentiful. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to the area.
This tour was fantastic! It has everything - food, nature, good service, comfort and interesting local history/information. This is a must activity if visiting Strahan. Terrific value for money!
One of the best tour I have been on. The staff were very professional and together with the Captain the whole experience was incredible. This is a part of the world everyone should see. I can not say enough about this adventure.
We were on Captains table, who told interesting and humorous stories. Kate was our waitress and the food was tasty and filling. The tours off ship were informative and funny.
The ground staff in Strahan were helpful and friendly the day before our cruise. The boat staff were excellent on the day, as were the actors who helped us to live through convict times on land. The food was excellent, the views were absolutely wonderful and it was one of the highlights of our Tasmanian holiday. The serenity of the Gordon River section was breathtaking, with wonderful reflections, and the stories of former days were thrilling but sad, and the walk through the rainforest experience was awe inspiring. Thank you.
Great scenery, ideal vessel for viewing, delicious lunch and plenty!
A fabulous day. The captain kept us informed and entertained. The staff were friendly and clearly enjoyed sharing their knowledge. The Gordon river is enchanting and mystical. I don't often give reviews but this trip was special. Well done and thanks.
