    Our group of 9 had a great time on this 2 hour self guided Yarra River Cruise. It was very well organised, with professional and friendly staff (thanks Matt). The boat was presented in very clean condition and there was a canopy to protect us from the wind. It was very relaxing a great way to see Melbourne city and docklands from a different perspective. I can highly recommended this excursion and company to follow Melbourne locals or visitors. Thank you.

    Thanks to Matt and Eliza for answering all my questions in the lead up to the event, and to Chris on the night for explaining everything. We did a self drive tour and the boat was very easy to drive. We brought our own alcohol, but ordered platters. Even though it rained a bit we did not get wet as the covers were pulled down. Overall, my wife and friends enjoyed her 50th Birthday and I would highly recommend Melbourne Boat Hire and the Eliza J

    Fantastic way to see Melbourne from a different perspective! Matt was very professional and the boat was very nice and well presented. We did a self drive tour (very simple to operate) with the family, but now im thinking id like to go again with some mates... might try the cheese and wine tour! Very highly recommended!

    We hired the 10 seater electric boat and had 6 people on board, so we had plenty of space to relax and take in the views of Melbourne. 2 Hours was sufficient time to go down the Yarra and turn near the Nylex clock, for our return journey. Going past Southbank and the Casino, was a wonderful experience. The boat has a small fridge and glasses on board. Bring your own ice for the ice bucket and you are set. Easy to drive, quiet and no boar fumes. A great day was had by all onboard.

    Took the family out on one of their wonderful modern 10 man electric blue boats, we were out for two hours (go for more!) and got to pass through the CBD then motored to quiet picnic spots / botanical gardens. Wonderful manoeuvrable boat, beautiful pictures! Excellent day out, highly highly recommended. There was even a fridge onboard and an awesome sound system!!!

    We had a lovely 2 hours on the water, seeing Melbourne from a different perspective. Able to enjoy a glass of wine and a couple of platters in our afternoon 'cruise' before heading out for a meal in the evening. The boats are beautiful, comfortable and easy to drive. (It is a boat and you still need to be careful, but we found it very easy). Good instruction and courteous staff sent us on our way. Definitely looking forward to doing this again.

    We hired The Harvey self drive for my birthday in November for a 3 hour adventure. This amount of time was perfect. We were able to go as far down river as Herring Island and return.There were 9 family members and we brought our own platters to share as well as our own drinks. The sun shone, the day was calm, the company the best and the scenery was beautiful. So much so we forgot to pipe our music in through the in built speakers for the 1st half of trip. Nice amount of space for 9ppl to share. Complimentary Champagne Bucket, glasses and plates as well as crisp white linen tablecloths, dropdown sides should the weather change and wonderful service from staff with meet n greet at handover to handover at end. Highly recommend this for that special thing to do with those you love.

    We booked a self drive electric boat for 12 persons. On the day itself, Matt, the person in charge from Melbourne Boat Hire, is extremely professional in making sure that we are briefed clearly on all the safety precautions and demonstrate to us on the functions of the boat. An amazing ride, with beautiful scenery along the Yarra River. Will definitely book the ride from them again in the coming future.

    The owner was very friendly and polite. He explained everything about the boat and its conditions of use. Driving the boat is easy, but you have to keep focus because the river flow makes the boat never stay in the same position as you want. They give you a map where it is specified the right way to pass the bridges, in this case is easier if a friend helps you or even you can pay for the driver service but is not really necessary. I think driving a boat is a good and different experience, is not hard and is something that you don't do all days. The boat has a small fridge, glasses, some pillows and blankets, but honestly is not cold because the boat has a kind of windows that protect you of the wind or water in case of rain. You can play music in the stereo of the boat, just pluging your mobile phone on it. You can also turn the lights on if you rented the boat in the sunset time and use the bell in different situations. I rented the boat for two hours and it was enought time to go along all the city and come back. It is a different way to enjoy the scenery and the places in Melbourne with a really beautiful view with your couple or your friends.
