Very impressed with the comfort and style of the boat. Was a fantastic day out for a group of adults and small kids. 2 hours was the perfect amount of time to see the city from the river.

We thoroughly enjoyed spending 4 hours meandering along the Yarra River. It was a perfect way to spend the day, beautiful scenery and such an easy carefree pace to self drive my friends on our own private lunch tour. Matt was easy to deal with and made sure we were all set before sending us off. We will definitely hire again.

Hired the electric boat for 4 hours, so easy to drive and no experience needed. So relaxing gliding our way down the Yarra river. Stopped at Herring Island where we had our picnic lunch which was catered by ourselves. On the boat there is an ice esky and fridge to keep all your drinks cold. Definitely will do this again.

We were with a Family of 8 people, older and teenagers. We had a great time cruising the Yarra. Boat was clean, well equiped. We brought our own food and drinks. It had a big table in the middle to put our niblies on. Very comfy boat and lovely for a 2 hours cruise on the Yarra. Definately recommending it to friends
