We rang the number and was informed the business had closed down so are not able to rate the experience. It did look like great fun on the you tube video

This was an amazing high speed ride. The man who took us out who runs it (i forgot his name) was very informative on the history of the area.

We rocked up at 1:50pm to make a booking for next day, but were advised weather might not be good, but he could fit us in at 2pm that day! He offered to wait while we grabbed warm clothes. So glad we did it then, next day was terrible weather as predicted. The trip itself was lots of fun, seven... More

We booked the trip with the Huon Pine Excursion which made the trip some 2 hrs overall. This was just what we needed as the alternative of a 5hr cruise on the Gordon River was too much.

Definitely worthwhile...we had so much fun with the wild spins in the boat and great commentary by the Skipper with lots of interesting history that you get to see close up. Strahan is a great day trip if you stay in Queenstown where its cheaper. Great food and attraction....this was a blast and highly recommended. They also do a longer... More

What a great morning adventure. A few spins in the water and a lot of exploration. Travelling along the harbour we then ventured up the King River. Our guide was full of useful information about the history of logging, mining, the railway and nature along our trip. I'd recommend this trip to anyone visiting Strahan.
