Great afternoon

We had a great afternoon. The guide on Sarah Island was fabulous and made it fun. Dinner was good and the walk through the rainforest was lovely. Boat and crew all great

How can a boat in peak period time not be running. Surely with the amount of skippers you could find one to drive the board....but no for 4 days no cruises....wtf we had booked for a cruise and by chance called into confirm to be told he was "sick"

What a fantastic cruise. The captains commentary, off shore tour guides on Sarah island, rainforest walk, food, saw mill tour and the on board experience were all top class. Exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend this cruise.

Chose this cruise due to reviews on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. Evening was wonderful from start to finish. Bought gold seats upstairs - included afternoon tea and dinner. Loved the stop on Sarah Island, and thoroughly enjoyed the trip through Hell's Gates, stop and walk in the rainforest, and cruising the Gordon River. We had read that you need... More

The scenery was beautiful, we also enjoyed the informative talk around Sarah Island and enjoyed learning about the history of this place. Staff were friendly, the boat was quite comfortable. The buffet was ordinary, no drinks were offered with lunch, not even water, drinks had to be bought separately. Disappointed that the bread sticks ran out by the time our... More

We joined the cruise with our three children, the nature is breathtaking, stops and walks were great with a fantastic and enthusiastic guide, the crew on the vessel is very polite and informative. And the captain had a very tolerant personality, answering tons of questions from our 7 year old boy ;-)

Cant speak highly enough of... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. The staff were very helpful. We purchased the most expensive tickets and had fantastic seats. Food was excellent and plentiful. The guide on Sarah Island was particularly good. This was a fantastic day out.

A great experience not to be missed. I came here in 1991 and did this cruise to see Hell's gate, the Roaring 40s, Sarah Island and the ancient Huon Pines. It was an experience I wanted to share with my family now. 2017 cruise is better than my 1991 cruise. The boat is new, the Sarah Island guide was very... More
