Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Melbourne Seafood Lunch Cruise

Melbourne Seafood Lunch Cruise

Make your way to Melbourne’s Docklands area in the late morning to board the vintage, double-decker Melbourne Showboat. This vessel once ferried passengers across Sydney Harbor and has been beautifully renovated as a dining and entertainment cruiser. Toast your Melbourne vacation with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine after you board.

Explore the boat’s two spacious decks as you make your way out into the open Yarra River. Comfortable indoor and outdoor viewing and seating areas provide ample opportunity to take in the sights of Melbourne and observe the river’s shipping activity.

Head to the dining room to enjoy a bountiful seafood buffet, beginning with appetizers like freshly prepared sushi, oysters and shrimp. Dig into a diverse range of main courses such as seafood pasta, grilled fish, roasted vegetables and a carving station with a variety of meats. Round out your meal with a salad bar, fresh bread and a sweet selection of mini desserts. Quench your thirst with complimentary tea and coffee, or purchase a cocktail from the full bar if you’d like something with more kick.

Fully satisfied, you’ll disembark back at the Docklands pier at the end of your 3-hour cruise.

It was one of the best food fests I have been on. The waters were calm, the staff extremely friendly and the service was second to none. All in it eas a wonderful 3 hours. Would most definitely do it again.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2015

it would have been nice to know where we were at times as some people thought we were at St. kilda and I think it was Port Melb. A short commentary would have been good.
