Cruise the Iconic Yarra River in Style with GoBoat

GoBoats are electric-powered vessels that can accommodate up to 8 people and are easy to operate. With no prior boating experience required, the boats are perfect for groups of friends, family, or colleagues looking to explore the city in a unique way. If you are a large group then you can hire more than 1 boat as well, of course, if there is availability.

To get started, visitors can book a private boat online or via the GoBoat app. You can choose to explore the city's canals, admire the city skyline, or even enjoy a picnic along the river. If you crave more and want to up your enjoyment quotient then you can book many options like Bluetooth speaker, Captain's hat, eski filled with your favourite drinks and many more through their Extras.

GoBoat also offer a variety of different packages for visitors to choose from, although the most sought after packages are the 1 hour, 2 hours and 3 hours tours. If you have never sailed on a boat and are a beginner in this area then perhaps a 1 hour tour would be best to get into the groove.

Their friendly staff assist you in getting inside the boat and provide a quick run down on its operation (which is fairly simple).
