Our Sports Cruises

AFL Cruise

It’s by far the state’s most popular sport and every match has supporters flocking to the stadium or local pubs to cheer their team. Why not avoid the crowds and enjoy a private venue that cruises through Melbourne city? A private charter boat is the perfect way to see the game.
