Its a very nice trip and a great way to view the city and a rare opportunity of travelling under the Westgate and Bolte bridges and seeing them from that angle. I particularly recommend viewing the city from outside on the back of the boat as they are views you can only get from the water. There are plenty of good spots in Williamstown to have a meal as well. The commentary was interesting too and for the price it is good value.

Great experience. Learned a lot about the history and infrastructure of Melbourne. Disappointed as didn’t realise the length of the cruise depended upon tide times/heights, (couldn’t fit under the remaining bridges on the Yarra River. 2 hour cruise consequently reduced to 1 hour.

Great, informative commentary. Very comfortable vessel. Very friendly and efficient staff. Not all parents bothered to keep their children under control so very noisy at times. Would recommend the 2 hour trip to anyone who wants to know more about Melbourne.

The ride was pleasant but the boat lost both engines on the way back from Port Melbourne to the city. They offered us to jump in the next boat though but we chose to walk instead.

Quite an enjoyable trip however ferry was unable to navigate under some low bridges on return trip so had to walk back a long way. Williamstown was lovely to visit.
