The cruse from Strahan to Macquarie Harbour, Sarah Island and the Gordon River was fantastic.
The staff were great and the cruise boat was very comfortable. We really enjoyed the tour on Sarah Island. The host, Ridley, was very interesting and entertaining. The trip up the Gordon River was spectacular, like going into another world. The lunch was also very good.
A memorable must- do trip which was great from start to finish
This was simply a superb day out. The scenery in the bay and along the Gordon River is magnificent and the commentary was excellent-knowledgeable and passionate about this beautiful part of the world. The tour of Sarah Island gave a real insight into the dark history of the island. All this plus a friendly, helpful crew and a tasty lunch.
The whole experience on the cruise and the guided tours were pretty good.
The whole experience on the cruise and the guided tours were pretty good. The food was mediocre. It was an added experience that the captain even allowed people to take a look at how he steers the cruise. The journey was quiet comfortable and the pristine rainforest was amazing. The crew onboard were pretty helpful and were very respectful.
