Back to School River Cruises Melbourne

No doubt your Christmas and school holidays were hectic, fast-paced events if you were managing little people! It’s time to put yourself first- and book some me-time, with a Yarra River Cruise. River cruises depart from Docklands or Southbank- near Federation Square and the Arts Centre.

Feeling guilty?

This interesting article from mama mia helps you decide whether or not you’ve been under pressure. Now that children are back at school, and you’ve managed to restore order to your living space- treat yourself to a private skippered river cruise in Melbourne.

We’ve Got Boat Trips for Any Occasion

Any of our special occasion boat cruises can be taken as a reward. Maybe you’re thinking that Valentine’s Day is coming up soon- or you have a birthday or anniversary highlighted on your calendar. Arrange a skippered boat cruise and enjoy the occasion. Catering can be ordered as an option. Guided river trips are relaxing, indulgent and educational.

Relaxing River Boat Cruises

Cruises have always been synonymous with relaxation and enjoyment. River cruising is slow, steady and silent as you drift on the water, away from the crowds. Luxury vessels- either skippered or self-drive- put you a world away from the hive of activity happening in the CBD. Our departure times are flexible and can be tailored to suit your needs. Popular options include 10 a.m. departures for a boat trip before lunch- we can even take you to a jetty on Southbank or Docklands where you can disembark and go straight to lunch. Take a twilight or sunset cruise to relax and reflect on the day. Popular departure times for a 2 hour boat cruise on the Yarra River, would be 4pm and 5pm. See the twilight over the city, then stop off at a restaurant along the water’s edge and enjoy dinner.

Our back to school cruises for parents might be just the luxury you need in your busy life! Make an occasion of it and celebrate the start of another new school term with a relaxing river boat trip. Book Here or visit our contact page to find out more.
