The highlight of the experience is then cruising into the spectacular Cataract Gorge as we engage the Lady Launceston's unique and silent electric drive. View the sheer cliffs and cascades from your comfortable seat with unobstructed views on our multi award winning 1890's style vessel. Enjoy the skippers captivating commentary on the history of this fascinating area.

Short 50 minute cruise up the Tamar estuary and then turned round to coast up the Cataract Gorge. Electric motor on the boat made for a silent peaceful approach up the gorge. Captain very very knowledgeable both of recent and much older history of the Tamar region. Would recommend to others.

This was a great experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They were very informative and gave a great running commentary the whole time. Answered any question when asked. The morning tea was also very good. A great way to spend a morning

It was nice to see the gorge from a different angle, while the cruise up the gorge is lovely the other end of the river is very boring, I wasnt interested in looking at old boats being worked on or villas along the waterfront.

We decided to do the cruise as it was raining and we couldnt walk there. The gorge was lovely but the cruise to the other part of the river to look at the rusty boay was a bit boring for me. The commentary was good though.
