What an amazing day. I gave my partner the Gordon River cruise as part of his 40th birthday present and we were upstairs on the Captains Deck. From the moment we arrived to the end of the cruise it was a wonderful day. The staff were attentive and the captain was very knowledgeable and funny, in a typical Aussie lad way, throughout the day.
They were trialling hot toddy's and mulled wine (I think) and I had a hot toddy which was my first - it was delicious. I had another later in the cruise. The food was abundant and the drinks were as often as you wanted.
While the boat was great and the service on it faultless it was the beauty of the scenery that was the real star of the day. From going out through Hell's Gates and cruising up the Gordon River to stopping at Sarah Island it was all perfect. The Gordon River is both mesmerizing and breathtaking. The stillness of the water and the reflections were beautiful. Definitely a must do cruise for anyone visiting Strahan, the absolute highlight of the trip.
