ABOUT Spirit Of Melbourne
Boat & Cruise Hire

Melbourne River Cruises is the longest serving tourism company operating since 1981.

Their fleet include six fully enclosed vessels, each unique and perfect to hire for private celebrations and special affairs. Each vessel features its own viewing deck, large windows and an outside deck area with heating in the colder months, as well as on-board amenities and staff to assist passengers along their river cruise. A range of functions can be catered for including engagement celebrations, birthdays, corporate events and many more.

Choose your vessel that best suits the capacity of your event and decorate the vessel beforehand to your likings.

If you are considering hosting a themed party, they can provide assistance. There are many flexible catering options to choose from, from cocktail style to sit down events, choose to leave lots of room for a dancefloor, or have tables set up for a more relaxed affair.

Enjoy your special event cruising down and up the beautiful Yarra River, whilst taking in the surroundings of what Melbourne has to offer.
