Even though the weather was not too good the trip was excellent. Lunch on board was good. Visited Sarah Island and we learnt a lot about the convicts and guards.

With prices starting at $103.00, this is not for those on a tight budget. But it's worth every cent! We were surprised to find that Saturday is a 'a quiet day' for Gordon River Cruises in April, Sunday is not. But we were there on a Saturday and had paid for a window seat BEFORE we found out there would... More

Not cheap but worth the expense, be prepared for a change of weather. Enjoyed the cruise and two tours of forest and former penal island, even if the sunshine turned to driving rain. Luckily we were upstairs in the expensive seats with food and wine to forget the drenching we received.

We paid basic rate for an allocated seat & buffet lunch , would highly recommend this option, as you can walk anywhere on the boat. Travelled... More

We did the cruise on a rainy Thursday but still enjoyed it immensely. The service we received was perfect, the staff were fantastic. Having now visited the Gordon River I can understand that it needs to be protected. The tour guides on Sarah island were fantastic.

Couldn't fault the boat of the crew. They were fun and informative. It was entertaining and lunch was fabulous. I did however not expect to be put on pest control duty. There was a European wasp on the window. Staff member whacked at it with a bit of paper. Succeeded in annoying said wasp which fell onto the floor and... More
