  • Beautiful chinese staff very nice & helpful. my 2 little boy & me very happy! Highly recommoad this boat hire.
  • 5 star experience all the way from initial enquiry through to making the booking and then our cruise. Cannot recommend highly enough, our wedding anniversary cruise was just perfect and our guests still rave about.
  • Work function held on the Birrarung boat, well over priced for what we got. The weather wasn't good so the boat did not move from the dock. No compensation offered. We did the BYO option and a lot of alcohol was left on the boat and we arranged to pick up our remaining alcohol which in the end we never got back. Not happy at all.
  • Hosted a hens night in Birrarung boat. it was so beautifu and the cruise was perfect. Staff are so helpful and friendly, food and drinks were excellent. Highly recommend booking this company for private functions
  • Best experience easy to use super clean and tidy boats and created the best memory’s and Matt is super helpful and easygoing
