Location

For one of the most comprehensive cruises of the Yarra River in Melbourne, this option incorporates all the major highlights of the city's waterfront sights and landmarks into a single great cruise package! Relax aboard the large, comfortable cruising vessel, soaking up the informative commentary while gliding past all of Melbourne's essential river attractions including Southgate, The Victorian Arts Centre, historical Docklands, river gardens, shipping port, Sporting Precinct and panoramic city skyline.

This 2-hour cruise departs every morning at 11:00am and makes for an outstanding way to see the best of Victoria's capital from one of the unique vantage points available - the water. Be sure to bring your camera along for the cruise as the Yarra River offers views of Melbourne's essentials that those walking or driving typically don't get to see; simply a great morning out in Melbourne!

The Melbourne sightseeing river cruise was amazing. The staff were very friendly, The tour guide was extremely funny and very knowledgeable. The boat we went on also had free coffee provided. I would recommend the garden cruise if you just want a calm boat ride but if you want a more exciting informational one, I suggest the downstream Yarra tour. I would definitely ride again!

Beautiful river cruise

Beautiful river cruise, very informative tour guide. The guide did have a tendency to mumble sometimes, so some information was lost. The other crew seemed a little tired and over it but overall I would recommend the cruise for sightseers and history buffs.

The Melbourne sightseeing cruise experience was great

The Melbourne sightseeing cruise experience was great. Learned a lot from our knowledgeable captain/guide - his wisdom and sense of humour made it more enjoyable. Will recommend this cruise to everyone who's planning to explore Melbourne CBD and wants to understand its culture.

Great tour guides

Great tour guides. Very funny and informative. Complementary tea and coffe was a bonus. 2 hour Melbourne city highlights cruise is definitely a must on your bucket list. Caters for all ages. Only wish it was longer and that we could have got off and on at a few spots

Myself and my partner went on the 2 hour sightseeing tour of the melbourne waterways

Myself and my partner went on the 2 hour sightseeing tour of the melbourne waterways, overseeing alot of wonderful areas in melbourne including alot of must see attractions. The commentary and service by the staff onboard was very amazing. The price was very cheap for 2hrs of excitement, and i recommend this tour to anyone that visits melbourne.

This was the first time cruise sightseeing experience for me and my boyfriend in Melbourne which was reasonable experience for us

This was the first time cruise sightseeing experience for me and my boyfriend in Melbourne which was reasonable experience for us, the views allow the both sides of the river are pretty on that warm and sunny day, the captain's tour guides explanations was ok too, the only regret thing was that we had booked a 2 hour tour but we had only treated as an 1 hour tour, the cruise was parked beside the river bank and not going for the another 1 hour tour, everyone was left, maybe because of that day was the Melbourne cup public holiday?

A wonderful opportunity to go and enjoy a scenic beauty of glazing the wonderful city from being right at the heart of the city

A wonderful opportunity to go and enjoy a scenic beauty of glazing the wonderful city from being right at the heart of the city. A two hour cruise is an amazing experience specifically if the weather is good. This was a first time experience for us and we truly enjoyed. I would highly recommend this tour with your entire family and friends.

Went on the 2 hour river cruise in Melbourne on the 11am cruise

Went on the 2 hour river cruise in Melbourne on the 11am cruise. Cruise was amazing, a great way to see Melbourne at a leisurely pace. Commentary on boat was excellent, but unfortunately you cant hear commentary if you are outside the boat, otherwise a great cruise with excellent staff.

Exciting

Exciting! That was my second experience hopping on a cruise, it was a comfortable cursing vessel. This tour includes 2 hour journey to view the Stunning views of Melbourne CBD. It took us through Yarra River in Melbourne, which was an amazing experience. Also, a great journey to view the complete view of Melbourne CBD. The speed of the cruse was well managed to enable the travellers to get beautiful photographs which would carry wonderful memories. Passengers were guided with Informative commentary adding value to this tour. It was a remarkable experience.

Cruise down the river in style taking in all the sights along the river banks of Melbourne. Go at night and you will see the beautiful lights of the city.
