      Good, inexpensive, interesting cruise.
      Nice cruise. Good value and the cruise captain was knowledgeable about the area. Informative. We were appreciative of the company as they held the cruise for a few minutes because we were a little late due to traffic. On the down side, the cruise was full when we arrived so people had to sit outside. No big deal though.

      Dissapointed
      Beautiful view of the Launceston area but unfortunately our tour guide didn't have much to say & we didn't learn anything about the Cataract Gorge. He was too busy chatting with some other guest on board & there was no goodbye or thankyou as he was still chatting to the same guests. We come on these type of river cruises to learn a bit about the area we are visiting & we learnt nothing on this one so very disappointing. Also heard some other guests saying the same thing as we came off.

      A nice river cruise on the Tamar River and into the Cataract River Gorge
      We went on the Lady Launceston and really enjoyed the Captain's talk on the Tamar River and the environs. We also navigated into the Cataract Gorge and it was a beautiful site to see. All in all a very pleasant outing.

      Great commentary and beautiful views. Well worth the $40 per person. Useful advice on a trip up to the First Basin as well.

      A cruise to remember
      Really enjoyed this fabulous river cruise of Tamar Valley and Cataract Gorge. The crew were amazing and Captain Callum has a wealth of knowledge about the local area. Service on board was exceptional. Abundance of food and local wine / beer tasting an added treat. Cannot recommend more highly.

      Picturesque.
      Nice sunny day and the views were fantastic. The river side had some interesting sights like the Peppers Silo Hotel and rock formation was very roughed.

      Cruising the Tamar
      We took the 50 minute cruise and loved it. We went early and there was only 6 people of which, we were 4, so it felt like we were on a private tour. Captain was friendly and informative. I would like to come back and do one of the longer trips

      Wonderful morning activity while in Launceston.
      We were greeted by the Skipper and Tour Guide on the Wharf. Down ramp onto Vessel where we were given Safety Instructions. Introduced to Assistant and other members of the Cruise attendees. Free to roam up, down or around the Vessel once it began its course. Exciting up on the bow whilst heading to the Cataract Gorge. Interesting hearing the history of the Bridges across the Gorge and seeing the old Victorian Homes on the hillside adjacent to the river. Most pleasant inside, out of the wind listening to the commentary and seeing all the scenery on either side of the River, when heading downstream. Morning Tea was available. Muffins, cake, tea and coffee. Most pleasant. Later: a wine tasting. Interesting sampling 2 whites, one red and a Lager. Lovely treat to finish the morning. Most worthwhile activity.

      Great cruise but get a good seat!
      Wonderful way to experience the Tamar River n Cataract Gorge, the slow cruise up the gorge was fabulous with plenty of opportunities to take photos and listen to the commentary. Unfortunately we had to sit out on the back deck (no room inside) on plastic garden chairs for 4 hours and the noise of the engine made the commentary completely inaudible for the entire trip up to the Batman Bridge and back. The plastic windows were very hard to see through so the trip was spent looking out a gap in the back. Moving up to the front deck for photos was a great opportunity. When in full throttle the boat created quite a wake and as it came to a quick stop to see the wildlife the wake washed into the back of the boat making it wet n sloppy. Any bags on the floor would have got very wet. Lovely morning tea n lunch served on the boat, with self serve tea n coffee. Plenty of muffins n cake. Rolls n focaccia with plenty of filling, fruit n cheese platter …certainly enjoyed by those seated inside. This is a fantastic cruise opportunity but just make sure you get a seat inside or upstairs.

      Thoroughly recommend it.
      Had a fabulous time on this cruise. Huon was the very capable captain and guide. It was great to learn some of the history of this area along with the opportunity to cruise into Cataract Gorge with its amazing cliffs and waterway. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed sitting outside relaxing in the sun listening to Huon’s commentary. I thoroughly recommend this tour to those on limited time and budget. You won’t regret it.

    The river cruise offered an overall average experience. I opted for this trip to give my partner a break from driving, and while the river cruise wasn't exceptional, it was decent. However, the true standout moments were found at the remarkable Cataract Gorge and the historic old bridge. They were the clear highlights of our trip.
