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.

Christmas party boat hire is the unique fun way to host an end of year office function. Private charter vessels are available for small or large groups of up to 35 passengers.

Arrive at the Spring Racing Carnival by water taxi . Make the journey unique! Arrange for a catered cruise, bring your own playlist and make an occasion of the journey. Beat the queues, the traffic and avoid parking hassles.

Arrange on-water transfers to a riverside 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. Progressive dinner cruises provide the ideal way to enjoy multiple courses of fine waterside restaurant dining, either onboard our vessels- or cruising between the finest establishments serving the best cuisine.

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.

Go 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.
