We were on the morning cruise to the Gordon River, the sky was overcast with showers forecast. The visit to Hell's Gate made you realise how difficult it must have been to get through when under sail. Interesting guided walk on Sarah Island where the...More

A must do if you are visiting the west coast. Absolutely beautiful boat, easy to move around on with great views from every deck. Lovely lunch supplied and great stops along the way with entertaining informative guides.

Great team with a number of interesting stories to immerse you in; an inhumane penal colony, the unique Huon Pine story, current salmon & trout farming, a huge harbour, bigger than Sydney's. Great team too.

We didn't have much time in Tassie. So felt the cruise was a bit long winded. Especially because the weather was drizzly all day. And a bit over priced for what it was. Was disappointed there wasn't a morning or afternoon tea and that we...More
