About
Cruise into the magical Cataract Gorge and through Launceston's riverfront precinct. Head north past Tamar Island, historical buildings; churches, pubs and significant homesteads. Sample the rich diversity of life as we cruise past quaint riverfront communities, vineyards and farms, to the notable Batman Bridge. The Tamar Valley is steeped with romance and studded with bushrangers, explorers and tales of gold diggers. Australia's longest navigable estuarine river has many natural coves and protected inlets provide sanctuary for thousands of native water birds which can only be seen on the river.

We just had to do this trip as we see the boat on the Tamar every day from our home. It was fantastic. Beautiful scenery from the water and we learnt a lot about the rivers history from Callum who gave a wonderful commentary and thankyou Gemma for taking care of the passengers with wine tastings and a a yummy lunch. Thoroughly recommend this cruise.

The commentary was just right. Informative, interesting and delivered in segments along the way. We really appreciated the captain asking people to refrain from talking loud at the relevant time so others could hear the commentary. There was plenty of food for morning tea and lunch.

I would have to say if you have the time well worth the tip down the River, the crew had a vast knowledge of the area and there was a lot of history to be learnt on the way backed up with good scenery wine and lunch, to top it off we got to see the Cateract Gorge for a different point of view.
