Yarra River Cruises: Skippered or Self-drive

We provide Yarra River cruises for all occasions. Luxurious vessels can be hired as self-drive or skippered boats for private cruising on the waterways of Melbourne. Our craft are available 7 days per week.

Celebrate Fathers Day with a boat trip.
Our self-drive vessels are an exciting- yet relaxing way- to say thanks to Dad. If your father, grandfather or husband enjoys unique experiences and loves water, check the availability of our boat trips for Fathers Day. Whether it's for an hour or two- or more- hiring a boat is a unique way of saying "thanks" to a special person.

Personalize any of our trips or skippered tours by adding catering, entertainment or a surprise for someone special.

Take advantage of the glorious Melbourne weather this season. Pack a lunch, a thermos of coffee- and hire a boat for an afternoon. Our boats can be hired as self-drive, or fully skippered, which means all you need to do- is come along and enjoy yourself! There are opportunities to go onshore and check out the promenade or walk in the gardens lining the river. Travel the waterways and see the bridges and city skyline from a new perspective. Even locals and veterans of Melbourne will find something different in the familiar sights.

Planning a hens night? Our boats are available for exclusive use by one private group. Design your girls' night or day on the water for a fun time. Book as many hours and extras as your group requires. Catering, drinks, BYO and entertainment can be customised exactly as you want. Select from our fleet of self-drive vessels. No boat license is needed.

Venture further afield, past the shipping lanes, container docks and head west. Different sights and points of interest can be found on the Maribyrnong River.

Cruise past the racecourse at Flemington, and sail post the Old Pipe Works. Disembark during your Maribyrnong River cruise and take in some of the history of Melbourne and the Ports.

Book a water taxi to a lovely restaurant dinner, concert or night out. Pickups can be arranged to suit the time of your special event. Water taxis can be for one or two people, or for groups of up to 35 passengers. See a show, have dinner or simply enjoy an evening on the Yarra River.

Cruise with the leading providers of bespoke water transport in Melbourne. Boat trips- on our beautifully appointed boats- can be booked as a special surprise for a lucky person. Experience one of our Yarra River cruises. Enjoy the delightful perspective of Melbourne from the water.
