This was a great half day trip. We booked the Gold seats but did spend a lot of time outside taking photographs and only came inside when the weather got too bad. The guided tour of Sarah Island was very informative and entertaining. Lunch was great with plenty of choice and the quality was excellent. Would recommend World Heritage Cruises (the Red Boat) to anyone thinking about doing this tour

We have done this cruise 3 times.The 2nd was on "Wanderer 2 " and I thought you could not beat it but you did on the "Eagle" It was a highlight of our trip. The commentary of the captain was great and the guys who took as on Sarah Island were wonderful. We had the gold seats and fantastic views as we are older it was worth the extra for us to have the comfort.

We chose World Heritage Cruises as they are operated by a local family and the good reviews here on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The Captain provided a great commentary throughout the trip. We decided to purchase the Gold Tickets as they are upper deck and provide seating besides the windows and we were glad that we did as we had excellent views. Everyone seems to have allocated seating and you have run of the boat as you can move up and down between the decks plus you will have access to the bridge and are free to speak to the Captain and ask questions or just enjoy the view. On the day we traveled there was an empty seat up front and the Captain let people sit there for photos.

Lunch was well organized and there was plenty of good food including lots of Salmon and no fear of running out. The staff onboard and on the ground were excellent and I would highly recommend this cruise.

My partner and I are in our late 20's, and booked the Gold seats. We had good seats and views, but in hindsight I needn't have bothered to book them as it was quite enjoyable spending more time on the deck than inside. I'd recommend saving yourself the money and book a cheaper seat, unless you're anticipating spending the duration inside. It was cold and windy outside, but hey - it's Tasmania!
The cruise was enjoyable, but certainly aimed at 'grey nomads' and the older generation who frequent such towns around the state. We found it to be a bit too slow paced for us, however did enjoy learning about the region and seeing parts of the place otherwise inaccessible.

We were very lucky that the day of our cruise was 29 degrees and perfect weather!
We were in a group of 4 adults and 2 young children and booked standard seats, we were placed at a really convenient table in the centre that curved in an L shape and had 2 or 3 extra seats which made it really easy with the kids. There is also a kids games room down below if you need a distraction.
Highly recommend this cruise to everyone, the commentary from the Captain throughout the cruise was very interesting. We were lucky enough to venture out into the roaring 40s given that the day was so perfect.
saw the Salmon being fed in the feeding bins which was interesting.
The walk around Sarah Island was very haunting even on such a good day, and our guide was fabulous.
The walk through the forest was also interesting.
Lunch was very yummy, and they were more than happy to cater for my needs by heating up some salmon for the pregnant mum.
And the on board cafe/bar charged good affordable prices for coffee, alcohol and snacks.
Toilets & facilities were clean and roomy.
