    Explore the World-Heritage waterways of Tasmania on this day action-packed 5.5 hour day cruise with guided stops and lunch. Departing Strahan Wharf, you'll head for Hells Gates, the narrow-channel entrance to Macquarie Harbour, named by the convicts on their way to “Hell on Earth.” Pass ocean trout and Atlantic salmon farms en route to Sarah Island, where an hour-long guided tour of the island conveys a keen appreciation of the harsh conditions at what was Tasmania's first and perhaps most notorious penal settlement.

    From Sarah Island travel into the majestic World Heritage listed Gordon River. Rediscover serenity while gliding deep into the ancient rainforest. Disembark at Heritage Landing for a stroll through the lichen-covered rainforest and one of its oldest inhabitants - a 2000-year-old Huon Pine.

    The whole adventure is completed by engaging onboard commentary on the area's human history, ecology and geology, a commentary enriched with anecdotes from the Grining family’s own experiences from more than a century of cruising this famous river. A delicious lunch including local smoked salmon is included to keep you fuelled up.
