“Good cruise even on rainy day”
Reviewed March 28, 2014

We booked the 2.5 hour cruise on a rainy day. Great trip, very informative and the service was excellent. Great experience and good value - we would have taken the 4 hour cruise but it was booked out. Not disappointed though as the 2.5 hour was great. Highly recommend.

A lovely cruise along the Tamar River. We chose the 2 1/2 hr tour! The tour guide made the tour interesting with his knowledge of the area and the sights were lovely. Would recommend this tour!

“Cruise”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

We did the Cataract Gorge 50 min cruise. The boat was very comfortable. The cruise was very relaxing and scenic. The commentary by our very knowledgeable captain, Callum, was both - informative and interesting.
All in all, a very enjoyable experience and good value for money.
Would certainly recommend it.

“Lovely cruise”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

We enjoyed the lovely 50 min cruise with some informative commentaries from our skipper Callum, who was friendly obviously very knowledgeable, clean vessel. The views are magical, no sea sickness ( I am normally very sensitive), toilet on board. I feel it was good value for money @ $75 per family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids aged 9-12). Cataract Gorge is a must see in Launceston. With the boarding passes you also get 20% discount on J Boags brewery tours and 10% discount in 4 (out of 5) restaurants on the Marina nearby.
