Yarra River Cruises is a branch of the Melbourne Boat Hire tree, offering private 1.5 - 2hr boat cruises commencing an hour before sunset.
Such cruises are hard to compare with any other experience in Melbourne. Choose a carefully curated three-course meal, a delectable cheese & wine spread or a mouth-watering seafood & champagne feast as you meander along Melbourne's waterways with Yarra River Cruises. Meals are prepared by some of Dockland's leading chefs and are ready for you to savour once your river cruise begins.
The recommended pick up point for your private Yarra River Cruise is at Newquay Promenade at the floating landing in Docklands. From here, let your skilled skipper chaperone you along the Yarra towards key points in Melbourne's CBD. See Melbourne's famed Crown Casino from the water, spot your favourite Southbank eatery and wave to merrymakers enjoying a drink or two on Ponyfish Island under the Yarra Pedestrian Footbridge!
Should you choose a shorter 1.5hr private cruise, your journey will end near the Royal Botanical Gardens where you disembark at your chosen jetty. There is the option to depart at the jetty outside the front of the Riverland Bar in Federation Wharf should you wish to carry on with your evening adventures in the city.
2hr dinner cruises will head further along the Yarra towards Herring Island. Romantic proposal river cruises may disembark here for a short while, allowing you to ask your partner that very special question!
Yarra River Cruises are truly unique to Melbourne. How else will you enjoy watching the sunset over Victoria's pretty capital city in such an elegant, peaceful setting?
