Huon River Cruises offers calm, all-weather boat tours on the stunning Huon River near Franklin, TAS.
LaDrone is a historic Tasmanian built wooden boat that features a fully enclosed cabin with a beautiful Blackwood fitout that sets up a nice, relaxing and comfortable atmosphere the moment you step aboard.
Explore the rich history and magnificent scenery of the Huon Valley while sipping on a locally made beverage and eating a delightful platter full of locally produced Cheese, Salmon and Tapenade.
Our Skipper and Crew love the river and region and their knowledge, passion and experience shines through on every cruise to make you feel at home and ensure you have the best time possible.


From $20 to $95

After a short brief from the crew we will depart and glide up the beautiful Huon River towards the Historic township of Franklin exploring the history of the area as we go and enjoying a local Huon Valley produced tasting board (purchased as an optional extra).

This cruise is set to inspire you to imagine a life on the water and get a glimpse of the rich history of the area, the people and the fantastic wooden boats that inhabit the waterways of the Huon Valley.

Cellar door wine tasting from Heriots Point Vineyard on weekends or via appointment through the vineyard itself.

We now sell locally produced alcoholic drinks such as Wine, Beer and Cider. Non alcoholic options are also available for purchase on the boat.

Bookings are essential on our cruises as there are limited available spaces and as we are at a private dock, we don’t accept walk in passengers.

Our beautiful fully enclosed cabin is perfect for all conditions on the river, not to mention the superb spacious and comfortable seating arrangements. On a nice sunny day we also have a safe and roomy back deck to soak up the sun.

For this intimate cruise we will start at the private dock at Heriots Point Vineyard, make our way up the river towards the Historic township of Franklin observing and discovering the absolutely gorgeous natural and man made scenery and rich history of the area as we go.

On board we will have a warm drink provided, along with scones freshly baked that morning by Franks Cider House Café.

As we are located at a private dock, prior booking is essential.
