Picture this…

▪ As you head down Portarlington Pier, you’ll arrive to the smell of locally caught mussels.

▪ Just before you hop on board for your hour-long cruise, you’ll enjoy a sample from the freshest mussels you’ve ever tasted.

▪ Once on board, the captain will shout you a drink from our licensed café; try a local cider, wine, beer or other hot and cold drinks. If you’re still peckish, you can purchase other snacks on board too.

▪ And the best part of all? Peter from Advanced Mussel Supply and The Little Mussel Café will be on board to chat all things mussels and to give the inside scoop on what goes on behind the scenes to bring this delicious product to your plate (or bowl).

Enjoy the sea breeze from the outdoors decks or take in the spectacular views of the Bellarine coastline from our comfy indoor seats. We can’t wait to see you on board and show off our town’s most famous export.
