Afternoon Highlights Cruise

If you’re short on time, why not spend a relaxing afternoon on the 3.5 hour Afternoon Highlights Cruise?

From Strahan, our Gordon River Cruises vessel will take you across the harbour to the pristine Gordon River. Travel 7km upstream to enjoy basking in glassy reflections as you view an ancient 2,000-year-old Huon Pine from a unique river vantage point.   After leaving the Gordon River, cruise by Sarah Island where you can look over the historic penitentiary, the most intact convict ruin on the island.  You will then enjoy an up-close view of the working fish farms that produce Tasmania’s world-famous salmon and trout and enjoy an ocean trout tasting on board.

Finally, cross the almost infinite expanse of Macquarie Harbour to reach the infamous Hells Gates where the harbour and Southern Ocean meet. Plus, if you book a ticket on the luxurious Captain’s Premier Upper Deck, afternoon tea is included, with a selection of finger sandwiches, scones, jam, local Tasmanian honey and cream, continuous tea, coffee and hot chocolate


3.5 hours, departing at 3.30pm.
