Six of us went on the cruise and it was impeccable from start to finish. Well organized and informative. The ship is immaculate and the on board buffet was both plentiful and tasty. The staff go above and beyond and a few of them joined us the next night for karaoke at the Strahan golf club and were fabulous. The... More

Comfortable boat and friendly crew. We are tall and overweight, so got advice on seating to get leg room. They advise the cheaper Atrium seats. In fact the ordinary level but window seats were excellent. Could not go upstairs due to a leg injury. the 2 tours are possible with impaired mobility. Great day out and well worth the time... More

I was excited for this trip but never thought it would turn out amazing as it did. As we were cruising towards the World Heritage Area we were surprised with common dolphins! They leapt out the water near the boat and my friend got some incredible photos of them. The tour itself was equally good, the staff were informative and... More

We were blessed with a fine sunny day and this made this incredible trip so much better. The scenery, history and massive expanse of the harbour create an experience that is hard to beat. The crew are fantastic, the lunch absolutely delicious and the 2 land walks exceptional. If you visit TAS make sure to get to the West Coast... More

This is one of those things you hear about and "have to" do, but really it wasn't that great. You sit on a boat with 220 other people, so it's really impersonal. The seat with folding tray table feels like you're on a plane. You go out to sea then back, then up the river to an underwhelming rainforest walk,... More

Great cruise out of Strahan. First you go out thru Hell's Gate onto the ocean. The the ship goes high speed to Gordon River. There you make a stop for a bush trail. To be honest, that is not worth doing unless you have not travelled Tasmania before. After boarding lunch is served, simple but good and fresh. Drinks are... More

Pleasant and professionally done, that would be my best comment. The service staff were great and the lunch on board was well-catered for. But the river sights were mediocre. And absolutely no wildlife spotted.
