Visit Melbourne’s historic first sea port on an exciting return sightseeing cruise to Williamstown.

Departing from the Southbank Promenade, guests can enjoy a relaxing cruise along the wonderful Yarra River and encounter attractions such as the Crown Casino, the Westgate Bridge, the Exhibition Centre and Polly Woodside along the journey.

After cruising for just under an hour on our comfortable vessel with large viewing windows, we will arrive at the picturesque Port Phillip Bay.

Guests have the option of disembarking at Williamstown to explore the area for a while then returning on a later ferry or alternatively, you are welcome to stay onboard and sit back and relax.

    Williamstown return cruise

    What an amazing day cruising from the city to Williamstown. Incredible fish and chip lunch, gelato, spot of shopping and just enjoying the stunning view and weather. Then back on the return ferry to the city. Highly recommend this experience

    Great day out

    Very different way to see a city...... Melbourne is a fabulous City and it looks even better when seen from the river. Thoroughly enjoyed the overview as we cruised down to Williamtown and the time we spent wandering around Williamtown was delightful. Weather wasn’t the greatest but there was plenty of room inside the boat to accommodate all passengers and boat staff very informative and helpful. Would highly recommend this trip.

    City & Williamstown Return

    Enjoyable outward cruise due to captain commentary. Edge greatly taken off the day on return trip after lining up for coffee. No cups on the table. Two men in front of me pointed to some shelving and told me there were more cups and saucers there, which was where they'd gotten theirs from. I reached in to get two, but apparently interrupted the deck-hand's lunch as she gave an audible groan, muttered under her breath, then stormed out of the seat she was in and grabbed a handful of each then slammed them down on the table in front of me without a word. Strong crockery because nothing broke. Fiery, fiery redhead temper was the perfect example of how not to provide customer service.
