We are available 7 days a week for private charters, including but not limited to riverfront event spaces, Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, birthday parties and wedding events.

We are available for educational cruises for school groups interested in the Yarra river's history and environment.

As Classic Cruises is a small business, we operate with a limited number of passengers whilst maintaining a high level of service, offering a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy the cruise in the utmost comfort and style. We pride ourselves on the quality of our cruises and the high standard of our boats, and enjoy many return customers. Your booking arrangements with us will be simple and your cruise will be relaxed and elegant.

Upstream Half Hour Cruise

Hop aboard at Southgate for a half hour upstream cruise on the Yarra, beginning with a safety briefing from your Captain.

Regarded as the scenic part of the river, we travel upstream past Federation Square, the Birrarung Marr parklands, numerous sporting venues such as the MCG and Rod Laver Arena, under Swan Street Bridge, which is one of 65 bridges spanning the Yarra, past the botanic gardens and the suburb of Richmond, turning around at the mansions of South Yarra. On our return journey, sit back and enjoy the Captain's commentary as we travel back to our berth at Southgate.

Down Stream Half Hour Cruise

Hop aboard at Southgate for a half hour downstream cruise on the Yarra, beginning with a safety briefing from your Captain.

The lines are let go and we head downstream under three very low bridges, Queen street being the first, followed by King and Spencer. We pass the landing point for European settlers, the Aquarium and Casino, Exhibition building, the historic sailing ship PollyWoodside, restaurants and bars of South Wharf, DFO, and one last low bridge before we enter the Docklands area. Looking further downstream from our turn around point you can view the commercial port of Melbourne.

On our return journey, sit back and enjoy the Captain's commentary as we travel back to our berth at Southgate.

Full Cruise One Hour

ARRIVE IN STYLE

Start your event before the event!

Forget walking in those heels to the races, with Classic Cruises you will arrive in style after enjoying the Maribyrnong river and a drink on board before disembarking at Flemington Racecourse. Finish your race day and celebrate your winnings with a return cruise.

Enhance your evening plans by doing something different like pre dinner drinks on board and a transfer to one of Melbourne's riverside restaurants.

We can transfer to and from function centres like Leonda or gather a group of friends and take a boat to your next sporting event or concert at Rod Laver Arena. Or you could simply bring a picnic on board and enjoy quality time with family and friends. If you're looking for something unique, Classic Cruises can help.
