I have already raved to friends and relatives about this wonderful 5 hour trip. We were very lucky to have a fine, cloudy day. The reflections of the beautiful clouds and forest in the dark still mirror-like Gordon were a photographer's heaven. Hearing all about the Huon Pines and walking through the historic forests, attending a fabulous tour of Sarah island with a memorable guide, and sailing out to where the ocean meets the Macquarie harbour, in a beautiful vessel, with a fabulous lunch and very skillful hosts, made the whole trip well worth every penny.
It is an awesome experience , everyone must visit the west coast, the hotel staff were extra friendly and the accomodation was great
We had a fantastic day out on the water. This tour was not only enjoyable because of the great commentary from the skipper and crew but it also incorporated so many points of interest. Sarah Island was a trip back in time and the scenery of the ancient Forrest with the hueon pine tall timber was breathtaking. A must trip to do if you are in Strahan and well worth the drive over to the West Coast of Tassy to do. The buffet lunch supplied was great too.
it was a wonderful experience, the cruise staff were excellent and the tours of the islands were spectacular.
would recommend this criuse.
It was fantastic. The scenery was great. We did the Captains Upper Deck and the service and food/drinks were great.
Great cruise. Spend the money and book the upper deck. Food and service are amazing!!!
We had a brilliant day. The extra we paid for the Captain's Premium was well worth it. The lovely food and attentive service really added to the day. The tour guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. The clouds finally burnt off later in the day which finished the day off beautifully.
Excellent service, food and sites, The vessel was excellent and accomodated everyone in style the visit to historic sits and forest was well worth it.
Very comfortable cruise even though the weather was windy. The professionalism of the crew and the guides on the walks was very entertaining and instructive. An easy 5 out of 5.
Gordon River Cruises gave us a wonderful experience, truely worth the money.
Our experience on the Gordon River Cruise could not be faulted. The boat was perfectly suited to this type of cruising, comfortable and with good viewing and opportunities for photography. The day had so much variety with a beautiful World Heritage walk and time on Sarah's Island and so much more. The pace was comfortable giving enough time to really take in the beauty. A lovely lunch was provided also. Guides were well informed and very interesting. The sight coming back into Strahan was breathtaking. I would tell anyone visiting this area to put this on your list.
Great cruise. The Gordon river is so beautiful and peaceful, versus the vastness of the bay with its waves and fish farms. Great history telling by the girls on Sarah Island. Great 6 hours spent on board the Lady Jane Franklin II.
The whole trip was exceptional. Our seats on the boat gave a great view from inside. The visits to the outer deck were exhilarating. The rainforest walk and visit to Sarah Island were very enjoyable and well presented. The food was most satisfactory. Finally the staff were all that one could hope both in competence and presentation. Thank you for a memorable day
We did the cruise on a day when the weather was quite average and still had a wonderful time. Laconic captain kept us entertained and the extra cost of the upper deck is worth it. Highlight - going through Hells Gate with a bit of rough weather on the other side. A nice boat and an excellent day out.
