About Arthur River Cruises
Enjoy a fun and relaxed day cruising on the 'Red Boat' 14ks up the pristine Arthur River. Destination: Turks Landing, set in a stretch of cool temperate rainforest. On the way see awesome white bellied sea eagles pick up fish which the crew float on the water. Further up the river is the sea eagles' amazing nest which was built over 45 years ago and continues to nurture chicks every year. Hear a wealth of information about why the Arthur River, the only 'wild' river in Tasmania, is so unique and special. See the changes in vegetation along the river banks and learn more about the plants and animals during a guided walk in the rainforest. A hearty BBQ with salads and wine adds contentment to the day's outing before the leisurely return trip is completed at 3pm.

We had an excellent day out with Tobie and Lee. The information about the river and The Tarkine was informative. Lunch was nice and relaxing after a bush walk. This is a family business and they do a great job. We even had a phone call to ensure we had arrived back in Stanley. Will certainly recommend

We had an amazing experience in the Redboat Arthur river cruise. Fantastic customer service and shared loads of interesting info about the forest, trees, birds and the place. Lunch was fabulous in a forest location, freshly prepared and served with love. The crew took good care of the people in the cruise. Overall excellent experience.

A family owned and operated business. Booked on the 'white boat' and received a call the day before the cruise to say it had broken down but the 'red boat' was still doing a cruise. Good customer service. Difference between boats is the food package. Continued with red boat cruise, female skipper and female guide, both very good, a nice cruise, BBQ lunch, good talk on the river, trees, history of the area. All in all a very pleasant day.

The Red Boat experience was wonderful - detailed information about trees, bird life and local history, with a lunch featuring Cape Grim products and home-made fruit cake. Captain Emma and crewmate Lee offered a high-quality day out with humour and fun. Highly recommended.
