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.

Wow !!!!
What a great cruise, friendly and helpful staff from the Captain down.
There was ample food served and the live music was a bonus.
Very relaxing cruise and if I had to name something that was missing, I would say that perhaps some commentary along the way would be beneficial to travellers from outside of Victoria. Only constructive criticism

Tour could not be faulted. Departed on time, complimentary drink on arrival very welcome while other travellers were booked in. Quality and quantity of food amazing. Staff were extremely efficient and pleasant - particularly Serge who had a good sense of humour. The quality of the table linen was also appreciated as was the fact the tables were not crowded together. The tour itself took us around Port Phillip Bay as well as Hobson's Bay which was really interesting. Having lived in Melbourne most of my life didn't realise how big the Port of Melbourne actually was. Have already recommended the tour to friends and family.

My husband and I did the Seafood Lunch Cruise to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. We had the most wonderful time, I was a bit worried about the weather as it was a very windy day, but it was smooth sailing all the way, we enjoyed every moment of it. The food was never ending and delicious, the staff, well what can I say? they were the most wonderful bunch of young people. Especially Lorenzo, what a wonderful young man. We were surprised with a cake and song to celebrate our anniversary and once again the staff made such a fuss over us. It was a wonderful experience and I would certainly recommend it. We have friends from Canada coming next month and we will certainly take them on this cruise. This was the most wonderful day and it was made possible by the captain and his cruise, it is a lovely memory of our 45th anniversary .Silvana and Aldo

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.
