We thought the tour was going to last 1h30mins on the River with impressive scenic views. Actually, it was a very short trip from the Fishnchips pontoon to the river back and forth and the guide did not give a lot of explanations and stories around the River.

We don't recommend this trip to discover the River, you should just do the easy 30mins hike to the free swimming pool to see more of the river.

The 6:30 morning canoe tour was the perfect way to start the day. So peaceful and out of this world! 10/10!

The guide was brilliant and we had plenty of time to gwt a good look at the gorge. It also helped that the weather was pretty much perfect

Definitely the highlight of my trip, can't recommend this enough. Aran is a great guide, really friendly and relaxed. The scenery is incredible and the pedal boats are a lot of fun. Great value for money also.

We had an enjoyable and relaxing experience. The tour covered some great scenic views of the Tamar River all the way to the edge of the Cataract Gorge. Our guide was very helpful and friendly and generous in his sharings along our ride. We were never rushed and were able to truly enjoy this nice serene tour.

Great fun and very scenic during good weather. The canoes were easy to operate, though a bit of a workout. Our guide Aaron was friendly and very helpful. Definitely a fun activity to do in Launceston.

A superb experience. Gliding along the rivers learning about the natural habitat and snippets of Launceston's history as we went. A wonderful way to spend a morning or afternoon. There were three generations of us kayaking with Aran and he catered for all our needs - me with a knee replacement, my inquisitive grandson asking a multitude of questions. We were quite energised by the whole experience and paddling into the gorge was amazing. This is a must-do for all ages. Thank you Aran and team!
