We went up & down on the Yarra river 1-1 hour to each direction. As the boat turns, you don’t need to worry about missing a spot - just remember where to look on your way back. The boat is average, but well equipped (clean restroom, open deck at the back, good coffee/tea for free incl.) Great experience, very friendly staff, could not recommend enough!

Fantastic cruise, staff were super friendly and helpful. Made very light work of my mobility issues, which was greatly appreciated.

Just imformative but also peaceful experience taking in the river and city sights
