It was lovely cruising down the Yarra River, listening to a very interesting commentary. The low profile boat only just skims under the very low bridges. The speed was perfect, great for seeing all the features of the river. The final approach to Williamstown was wonderful, looking to Commonwealth Reserve and back over Hobson’s Bay to Melbourne city. What a truly delightful little township is Williamstown. So much to explore that you won’t want to catch the first ferry back.

The trip was very informative thanks to Captain Jim’s clear description of the many features and history as we travelled to Wellington Point. Despite grey skies we were thankful only a shower or two fell. Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and would recommend it highly

Easy to purchase tickets, very comfortable trip. Williamstown was a lovely surprise for lunch. Captain Dave's commentary was entertaining and informative.

Everything was on time and the staff professional and friendly.

The trip was very informative & the crew were lovely.
