Explore Melbourne from a different perspective with an afternoon cruise on the Yarra River departing from Victoria Harbour in Docklands. Be transported back in time by listening to historical commentary about the harbour’s rich past, industrious port and key landmarks along the Yarra River. Also included in your leisurely afternoon cruise is a house wine or beer and some cheese & crackers, both of which can be enjoyed on the outside decks as you float along the river – Delightful!

Our modern ferries feature multiple indoor and outdoor seating areas, accessible onboard facilities and complimentary Wi-Fi and charging stations. They are also easily accessible for all via our boarding ramps and they comfortably accommodate wheelchairs, motorised mobility scooters, and prams.

Please Note: This is a special event cruise outside of our regular services. Companion card travellers and children will not receive the food and beverage component of this package. Additional items may be purchased from the onboard cafe. Cancellation within 72 hours of travel is non-refundable, however if you cannot travel due to unforeseen circumstances we can look at transferring your booking to another cruise subject to availability.

Discounted Portarlington Package

Although these cruises depart from and return to Docklands, the timings have been set up so residents from Portarlington (and surrounding areas) can catch the ferry over and arrive in Docklands with plenty of time before the short cruises depart. To make this option affordable we have set up a Special Package price for Bellarine residents that includes the return ferry trip from Portarlington.

Please note there will be some time before and after the cruise for activities at your own leisure. At this time, we can offer the comfort of the Melbourne Ferry Terminal for lunch or and afternoon drinks, however, please be aware of the return ferry schedule before taking up this offer.
