We went on a rainy day but it was still an excellent experience. Polished narrative from the captain while cruising and the other staff were friendly and efficient. Interesting stops along the way and the buffet lunch was delicious. Highly recommended.

Great team with a number of interesting stories to immerse you in; an inhumane penal colony, the unique Huon Pine story, current salmon & trout farming, a huge harbour, bigger than Sydney's. Great team too.
