We can accommodate up to 12 guests with our self-drive hire boats, so you decide how big you would like your adventure to be!

Our eco-friendly electric boats make no noise and emit no fumes as they make their way up or down the beautiful waters of the Yarra River. The best part of this experience is that it is a safe experience where no boat license or prior experience is required. Before departure, our friendly team member will give you and your guests a thorough briefing and provide an in-depth map so that you can create your own adventure.

Once you set adrift, go on and explore the spectacular sites and attractions along the way. You will be able to view attractions such as the Botanical Gardens, Federation Square, Southbank with its attractive waterfront restaurants, the Crown Casino and the Docklands Precinct and much more.

The weather in Melbourne can fluctuate from hot to cold to the reverse and everything in between. As such, all our boats are fully enclosed so that you can enjoy your cruising experience regardless of the weather.

We have a range of food and beverage options including BYO – Bring your own food and beverage to enjoy on the cruising adventure. If you prefer a proper dining experience, do not hesitate to inform us and we will be happy to accommodate your request including a variety of dietary options.
