Fantastic staff, friendly and knowledgeable. An unforgettable cruise and tour of rainforest and Sarah Island. For singles, families and anyone we couldn't recommend enough. Beginning the stay at Strahan before boarding to cruising a must stop in Tassie.

This was the highlight of our trip to Tasmania. The boat was really well appointed and the staff so friendly and knowledgeable. The scenery was spectacular and we especially enjoyed the walk to see the Huon pine trees.
