“Lovely old boat, great lady skipper.”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

This lovely 90 year old classic plies the Yarra River in Style.
Lovely timberwork and informative commentary make this a great alternative to the larger vessels.

“Such a quaint way to cruise the Yarra”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

So happy we choose this little boat to cruise the Yarra. I personally found it more enchanting compared to the large commercial boats. You get the chug chug sound as you cruise along. Great commentary but not too much and very affordable. We only had time to do the 30 min cruise but would happily do it again for the full hour.

“Brilliant - don't go on the big boats you'll be missing a real treat”
Reviewed 11 November 2011

This is a lovely wee boat, originally used for timber transportation, with a bit of history. Hamish and his dog Molly are very welcoming. Lovely trip down and up the Yarra ( do the full hour ). Hamish's commentary is interesting and he obviously loves the river and the boat. Molly is pretty interesting too. Most entertaining!
