Get On A Boat and skipper you and your crew up the Yarra River.
Some of the best views of the city are from strolling down the Yarra River and looking back from around Birrarung Marr. But for the best views, and for an awesome day out, it’s hard to look past On A Boat. Rent one of their deluxe electric boats and you can cruise up and down the river and see the city and its surrounds like never before.
No boating licence? No worries, because On A Boat doesn’t require one. All you need to be is 18 or over to call yourself the captain.
On A Boat’s skipper yourself deluxe electric boats can seat up to nine people including the captain. They depart from WTC Wharf and can cruise from Dockland’s Victoria Harbour all the way Victoria Bridge in Richmond, which is a fair way up the river and requires a bit of time. Luckily, you can rent a boat for up to four hours.
And like all good boat outings, you’re able to bring along snacks, a picnic if you so choose and drinks too to enjoy on board. The only condition is that the designated skipper must blow 0.0% BAC at all times. Remember, you are sharing the waterway with others so you also need to be back by sunset. Bring on the summer time!
The deluxe electric boats come with super plush seating for a comfortable time on board. And to add to the good times with friends, food and drinks, these electic boats come equipped with bluetooth. Pair your phone and pump the music.
Dogs are more than welcomes aboard and kids too, who will be given a life jacket to wear if they’re under 10. Just keep an eye on them both. The Yarra River scenery can be alluring and distracting. You might even catch a glimpse of Salvatore the seal.
On A Boat’s deluxe electric boats are super stable and easy to drive. They make for a day out on the water a breeze and now a reality for so many of us that couldn’t get out on a boat before because of no boat or no boating licence. Nonetheless, a $300 security deposit will be required to safeguard against damage or breach of customer responsibilities.
Call your crew and let them know that next time you see them (fingers crossed it’s soon) it’s going to be cruising the Yarra River On A Boat. What song is first on the playlist?
Prices start from $129 for a one-hour deluxe boat rental.
