ideas for something different on Valentine's Day

Surprise Ideas for Valentines Day Dates

Looking for something unusual as a date idea for your Valentine? Sure everyone brings chocolates, buys roses- does dinner and a show. There's a way you can make any of these tried and tested favourites extra special! Combine one or more of them with a private romantic boat cruise. Move out of the circle of what everyone else does and impress your date with something that's sure to get people talking and hearts fluttering.

Enjoy a spectacular sunset cruise on the Yarra River- see the Melbourne city lights from a unique perspective and watch those impressive flames outside Crown Casino. With a self-drive yacht- you're the captain! Delight your date with the sights of Docklands and Southbank- as well as great views of all the bridges on Melbourne's waterways.

Our Valentine's Day boat cruise packages are unique. With boarding locations in Docklands, Southbank in fact- anywhere along the Yarra River- your date can get the impact of the surprise just before finding out what's in store. if you're going out for a romantic dinner- we can provide a self-drive or skippered cruise before you dine. Your own skipper can meet you and take you on private boat trip aboard a private yacht! We can provide pre-dinner snacks or drinks too.

Arrive at Your Lunch or Dinner in Style

Ignite the romance of the Mediterranean and treat your beloved to a transfer by private water taxi. We do Docklands to Williamstown, Southbank to Docklands or vice-versa- in fact- anywhere there's a jetty along either the Yarra River or Maribyrnong River- we can pick up or drop off. If you combine a night at city waterside accommodation- the suburbs seem a world away when you travel Melbourne's waters by boat. Hiring a water taxi- arranging a transfer between points on the rivers, leaves you free to enjoy each other's company without worrying about the hassle of parking.

You can disembark along the river at Southbank or Docklands- in perfect proximity to the restaurants or Arts Centre- and have some fantastic photos as well. People have popped the question during boat trips on our luxury hire yachts! Flowers have been delivered- as a favourite token to express love. Maybe it's a little too soon for diamonds!

If you are planning to stay the night in a city hotel- there are jetties along the river we can stop at, so you can disembark close to your accommodation. Valentine's Day in 2018 is on a Wednesday. Our packages are available for early birds- people celebrating Valentine's Day on the Friday or Saturday night prior to the day. And if you forgot to organise something- a last minute cruise idea, on the weekend after Valentine's Day is sure to get you forgiveness!
