Easter is a day of celebration, and nothing suits celebration better than a day with Melbourne Boat Hire. We can offer you to take you on an exciting cruise along the Yarra River for sight seeing, and see what Australia has in store for you.

Skippered cruises operate 7 days a week and different packages have different cruise timings, durations and facilities. You can also add the lunch and dinner buffet option to make the trip even more worth it. The cruise has designated locations and spots that it will stop at so you can see how different places decorate themselves up for Easter. If you’re a person who wants a quiet alone time away from people and crowds, then you can also avail our other option of hiring a personal self-drive boat, that doesn’t require a license or a driver, you can drive it yourself. The boat can be taken along the Yarra River and you can either stop in the middle of the river and gaze out over the sea having a relaxing time, or you can pull up close to the shores and see how people are celebrating the holiday. It is one of the most amazing and enjoyable experiences, that is unique and hassle free.
