Whilst in Strahan, we wanted to do the train ride but it was suspended. We had cruised the Gordon River on our last visit. We decided to do it again and were so glad we did. Weather was perfect and made for an enjoyable day. Staff were friendly and the tour of Sarah Island was a highlight with the narrator giving a stand out performance with her knowledge and crowd involvement. Lunch was a lovely selection of cold meats and salads. Highly recommended.

This was one of our best days in Tasmania. The cruise was well worth the price. The boat was less than half full on the day we went, so we had plenty of room to spread out and move around. My children loved sitting in the wheelhouse with the captain. All the staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. We had plenty of weather condition is our six hours, rain, wind, sun and hail! However, our hour tour on Sarah's Island was,thankfully, dry and Janice was a wonderful guide.
Lunch was fantastic and plentiful. This is a must-do tour when in Strahan.
The commentary and DVDs were very informative and we loved standing on the deck in the wind! The scenery was wonderful. We even saw a seal and an eagle!
Highly recommended

Great boat, large and modern. I was lucky and scored a great day, sunny with no wind. This meant once you got into the Gordon River the reflections in the calm water were amazing. I booked a standard seat which was fine, because if you stay in your seat the whole time your missing out on the great scenery, it is an open boat which means everyone can move around, it has large outside areas to soak in the view. Lunch was basic but nice, plenty to eat.

This was the most expensive thing I did on holiday but it came so highly recommended I thought it was worth the risk and seeing as the Railway wasn't working (and would have been my first choice) I wanted to do something fun while here. Probably didn't need to pay for the most expensive seats as the boat wasn't very full but I could imagine in peak season it would be more worthwhile. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the entire trip was well narrated by the very knowledgeable captain. The walk and talk on Sarah Island was absolutely priceless and well done and the little nature walk was fun. Great for all ages and fitness levels and a great mix of a sea/river journey. Had a mix of weather but the rain failed to dampen the trip. Could not recommend highly enough.

This was the best day of our 10 day holiday in Tasmania, thank you to the staff of world Heritage Cruises. We had premium window seats which were very comfortable with excellent vision. The whole tour is run professionally and smoothly. The staff, even down to the girl in the booking office were extremely friendly and efficient. (remember to show your seniors card for a discount)
The buffet lunch provided was more than adequate, ingredients fresh and of high standard. The Gordon River was beautiful, such a peaceful and tranquil place, a must see which was made possible by this wonderful cruise. Friendly Captain who gave a very informative commentary.
There are two stops which gave us opportunity to see flora & fauna up close. Highly recommend.
