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.

    Wonderful experience

    It was nice trip to Williamstown and return. Melbourne river cruise have provided good service as per website description. It was well commented trip and amazing experience to see Melbourne skyline from middle of yarra river. Different bridges built over period of time gave glimpse of history enroute. Overall great experience 👍

    River Cruising

    We did the city to Williamstown cruise. Great commentary on the way down. Time to have lunch at one of the many establishments and poke around the little village shops. The down side is there is no where to wait for the return trip out of the weather. We had a super hot day and the boat was late.

    Wonderful adventure

    While the boat is pretty basic, the informative trip enroute to Williamstown was highly enjoyable. Lots of history and general comments thrown in. A safe and easy way to see that part of the river. Williamstown itself was delightful. Small and easy to get around. Nice beaches to swim at, parks to walk and historical buildindings to take in. Plenty of restaurants to visit.
